OKBET ODDS – OKBET NBA
Preseason NBA MVP – With the NBA season a mere two-and-a-half months away, futures bettors are getting an early idea for the big participants in the 2022-2023 NBA Most Valuable Player competition.
Is Ja Morant going to finally get his first MVP award after his meteoric rise to superstardom? With Christian Wood now on the team, can Luka Donii build on last year’s impressive playoff performance? Or will last season’s runner-up, Joel Embiid, take home the title after two seasons of being disappointed.
Let’s check out the top 10 early favorites for MVP. We chose on 10 candidates since, according to OKBet Sports Research, since 2007 the longest preseason odds to win the award were +2500 (Nikola Jokić (2021) and Derrick Rose (2011)). There are only ten players with odds of +2500 or lower on OKBet at this time.

Luka Dončić: +450 (bet $10 to win $55 total)

Nikola Jokić: +900 (bet $10 to win $100 total)

Preseason NBA MVP
Here are a few things to bear in mind while perusing these statistics, courtesy of OKBet Sports Research. LeBron James has been a major factor in four of the six victories for the preseason favorite over the past 16 seasons. The only two times the preseason favorite has won are when Giannis Antetokounmpo (2020) and Russell Westbrook (2017) were in the league.
