Online sportsbooks currently have LeBron James as a slightly heavier favorite to walk away this season with his fifth Most Valuable Player award.

Odds To Win 2021 NBA MVP

  • LeBron James +120
  • Nikola Jokic +400
  • Joel Embiid +500
  • Steph Curry +1000
  • Kevin Durant +1100
  • Luka Doncic +1300
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo +1600
  • Damian Lillard +3300
  • Kawhi Leonard +5000
  • Donovan Mitchell +6600

There is no reason that LeBron James NBA MVP odds should not be the favorite to win right now. At 36 years of age, he is averaging 25.5 ppg which is 13 in the league, 8th rpg which is 23rd in the league and 8 apg that is 9th along with a 24.16 PER which is the 12th best in the league.

The fact that James is doing all this at his age should already be more than enough for him to win the award. Not to mention he has also led the Los Angeles Lakers to the second-best record in the league at 21-7.

Something else to take note of at this moment is that James' teammate, Anthony Davis, has been diagnosed with a calf strain that will keep him sidelined for two to four weeks. In the time that Davis will be sidelined, this will be where LeBron can prove his case for the MVP if the Lakers can continue to win. It will also give James a chance to bump up his stat line as well.
