2021 NBA MVP Tracker

Starting a thread to track the MVP. Any value out there right now?

I have the following:
Jokic to win at 31x
Embiid to win at 31x
Lebron to win at 13x

The top 2 favourites (Luka and Giannis) i don't think either of them will win it. Giannis would have to do something insane historically to win this award for the third straight year. After the playoff flame-out, the narrative on this guy is not good. And i know its a regular season award, but many of the media voters have talked about how Giannis needs to perform in the post season. Luka will depend on team record, i dont think dallas finishes top 3-4 in the nba standings.

There is still value on Embiid right now. Philly has a good chance to finish 1st in the east.

Any other strong candidates? or value picks

Good luck with your picks Fella!

Usually the MVP is a top level superstar (Jordan, Bryant, James). I can't see it going to anyone but a top echelon player. Right now the way Steph Curry is playing, he would be on my list.

Thank you! Embiid looks good hope he stays healthy.

There are a few mvps here and there that are not accomplished (rose, giannis, westbrook, harden). I see no reason why embiid cant win. Hes playing well and has a chance for the 1 seed
