Giannis remains favorite for NBA MVP at the All-Star Break

The Greek Freak nearly won ASG MVP to add to his trophy case. The Bucks star appears poised to run away with the a second-straight nod.

The All-Star Break is almost over so we’ll start up basketball again. Unfortunately, the NBA won’t see much of an exciting MVP race considering Giannis Antetokounmpo has pretty much secured the second straight award if the odds are any indication. Giannis has been the biggest mover on DraftKings Sportsbook throughout the season and the rest of the pack continues to fall behind him. The Bucks are far and away the No. 1 team in the NBA and as long as Giannis stays healthy, he’ll almost certainly be named MVP at the end of the season. Here’s some updated movement:
