NBA MVP Power Rankings

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo (+270) Bet $100 to collect $370.

While Giannis remains first in the power rankings, he’s dangerously close to falling to second to Doncic. It’s not because Giannis hasn’t been great, though. He’s still averaging 31.8 points per game and 12.2 rebounds per game while adding elite defense. 

If Giannis gets jumped and is second place, the race between the two is still going to be incredibly close. Both are having great seasons, and the storyline could be what gets Doncic the nod over Giannis, despite both players having incredible cases. 

2. Luka Doncic (+300) Bet $100 to collect $400.

Doncic has continued his tear during this season, and he could make the jump to the top of this list at any point in the next week or so. He’s had just one dud of a game that was his most recent. Doncic’s the league's leader in scoring at 34.8 points per game, tacking on 8.2 rebounds per game, and 8.1 assists per game. 

With the usage rate Doncic has, he performs well and puts up incredible stats, while his team continues to have a winning record. He’s dominating in the points-per-game category with no signs of slowing down. He could easily jump Giannis this week if he can put together a few more monster games. 

3. Jayson Tatum (+800) Bet $100 to collect $900.

Tatum’s odds remain the same this time around, which makes sense because he’s continued to be incredible. The Celtics are still one of the best teams in the league, while Tatum is averaging 31.2 points per game. 

Tatum's last two games have consisted of a 39 and 31-point game, which has helped solidify his position in these power rankings. Tatum’s improvement on both sides of the ball, while seeing team success, has been vital to him solidifying real contention to win the award. 

4. Ja Morant (+1200) Bet $100 to collect $1300.

Morant has taken a slight dip, as did many players averaging 30+ points per game through the first five games, but he’s still averaging 28.8 points per game and 6.9 assists per game. Numbers that are definitely worth an MVP run, but he’s going to have to lead the Grizzlies to an incredible record. 

Morant is coming off a 30-point game followed by a 32-point game. Safe to say his elite play is here to stay, even if he isn’t averaging the crazy 35 points per game that he was to start the season. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Morant floated around the 3-5 spots on this list throughout the mid-part of this season.

5. Stephen Curry (+1600) Bet $100 to collect $1700.

A new candidate has joined the run! Joel Embiid, with injury, has slipped to the sixth position, and his position on the board was taken by none other than the 2x MVP, 4x Champion, and now Finals MVP. Of course, that resume goes much deeper, but it’s good to see Curry crack the top 5 on these power rankings as the season moves on. He’s averaging 32.6 points per game, 7.1 rebounds per game, and 6.9 assists per game, which are MVP numbers.

Curry scored 39 points against the Orlando Magic, which ended up being a one-point loss, then turned around and scored 47 points against the Sacramento Kings to win by three points. 

The big games are needed for the Warriors to scrape these wins up as they continue to try and get back in rhythm following their championship season. If Curry continues his incredible stretch while willing his way to more Warriors wins, his line is going to continue to improve.
