2022 NBA Finals MVP Odds: Steph Curry Given a 45% Chance to win MVP

When selecting the MVP of a series, it's always good to first look at which team you think is going to win. Most of the time, the Most Valuable Player is given to a player of a team that wins the championship.

In the 2022 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors will take on the Boston Celtics, in what should be a very exciting series between two evenly matched teams.

Personally, I think there's value on the Celtics at +130 to win the series. If that's the case, then I might want to look at a couple of Celtics players to win the MVP of the Finals.

Here are my picks and predictions for the 2022 NBA Finals MVP.

2022 NBA Finals MVP Odds: Stephen Curry +120 (Bet $100 to win $120)

If you like the Warriors to win, Curry is your guy. In the Western Conference Finals, Curry averaged 23.8 points, 7.4 assists, and 6.6 rebounds. He's not just a scorer. He crashes the glass, earns assists, and energizes the crowd in a heartbeat.

When Curry is needed to produce a little bit more, he has no problem with that. Against the Memphis Grizzlies, Curry averaged 26 points with 5.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds. Lately, he's been crashing the glass more and allowing guys like Klay Thompson to get hot.

However, if you're looking for value, Curry isn't it. In all three championship seasons, Curry didn't win a single MVP. Andre Iguodala took home one while Kevin Durant took home the other two MVPs. He'll be looking for his first MVP in the NBA Finals this season. That might make you want to stay away.

2022 NBA FInals MVP Odds: Jayson Tatum +175 (Bet $100 to win $175)

Jayson Tatum just led the Boston Celtics to their first NBA Finals since he was added to the team. Tatum averaged 25 points against the Heat, while also earning 8.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. Tatum has defeated some tough competition between the Nets, Bucks, and Heat. There's reason to believe Tatum can get by the Warriors as well. He's averaging over 40 minutes per game and while turnovers can get high, he's doing a bunch of little things to help the Celtics stay alive. His stat line is always near a triple-double lately because of the amount of attention he gets from defenders. If he keeps the turnovers down and helps lead the Celtics to an NBA FInals, there's a good chance that Tatum will be the winner.

2022 NBA Finals MVP Odds: Wild Cards: Klay Thompson +1500 or Marcus Smart +3800

If the Warriors win the Championship, Klay Thompson could earn the MVP award. In Game 5 against the Grizzlies, Thompson exploded for 32 points on 8-for-16 from downtown.

If he has a couple of those nights, he'll absolutely be considered for the award if the Warriors win the Finals.

Meanwhile, if the Celtics end up winning and it's not Tatum winning the award, a guy like Marcus Smart could be the name called. Smart was the NBA's best defender this season and just added 24 points in two of five games in the Eastern Conference Championship.

Smart also averaged 6.2 rebounds and assists in that series and was a huge part of the Celtics' run to get into the Finals. If he's healthy, he's going to make a massive impact in this series.
