Does Bucks early playoff berth add to Giannis’ MVP resume?

With Milwaukee already in the postseason, does this just mean The Greek Freak will continue to run away with MVP? We take a look at the updated odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.

We aren’t even in March and the Milwaukee Bucks have clinched a berth in the NBA playoffs. With that, it just adds to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s cast resume to take home a second straight MVP award this season. Now that the Bucks are in, they’ve got their eyes set on locking up the No. 1 overall seed in the postseason. As it stands, it’s hard to envision anyone really challenging Giannis for MVP. Something drastic would need to happen and — knock on wood — hopefully nothing like that happens. Let’s take a look at the updated NBA MVP odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.
