We’ve almost a full month into the Year 2020. Since the New Year, the odds movement in the 2019-20 NBA MVP race has been pretty negative for most players not named Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is running away with his second straight MVP award, averaging 30 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game this season. The Bucks are far and away the best team in the NBA at 40-6, currently on a historic franchise pace. If all holds, Giannis should win with ease over Luka Doncic, LeBron James and James Harden. DraftKings Sportsbook provided this nice table for reference.
