After becoming the only player in NBA history to score 60 or more points and tally a triple-double, Luka Doncic is now the MVP favorite, at least according to one bookmaker.
The majority of the betting markets still have Tatum as the favorite, as he has held that position for about a month, but SportsBetting moved Doncic to the front spot Wednesday morning.
“I’ve been saying for two weeks that Doncic should be the MVP favorite by a solid margin, but we have to respect our positions as well as the market,” Martin Lindbergh, Head NBA Trader at the website, said. “Without Tatum, the Celtics are still a very good team. Without Luka, the Mavericks join the other Texas teams as the worst in the West.”
The Mavs have -450 odds to make the playoffs this season. They are listed at +3300 to take home an NBA Championship and +1600 for the Western Conference.
