LeBron James As The Favorite

Despite the recent struggles from the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James is the betting favorite to be named Finals MVP.

The Lakers won’t have the easiest ride to the championship game, but are still the betting favorite to win the title. The Lakers not only have a tough ride as a No. 7 seed, but the team isn’t playing well due to lingering health issues among the stars.

The Lakers do seem to be healthy at the right time, however, and will have Anthony Davis and Lebron James to start their Playoffs. They’re also coming in having won six straight games.

It’s not surprising that online sportsbooks have James as the favorite, but there are probably safer options with more betting value.

Is Kevin Durant The Best Bet?

It’s no secret that the Eastern Conference is weaker than the Western Conference, meaning the Brooklyn Nets will probably have an easier ride into the NBA Finals. Although Kyrie Irving and James Harden are both among the shortest odds, if the Nets win the finals, KD should win Finals MVP.

Durant won Finals MVP over Steph Curry two years in a row so nobody should feel worried about Irving or Harden potentially stealing the award.

The East is a three-team race and the Nets are clearly the most talented of the group. If the Nets win the championship, Durant should certainly win Finals MVP. It’s as simple as that.

The Rest Of The Field

Sports betting sites have plenty of options to choose from and any bettor who thinks any team other than the Lakers or Nets will win the finals can get some very generous odds on the team’s best player.

Some noticeable options are Giannis Antetokounmpo at +1000, Joel Embiid at +1000, Nikola Jokic at +2500 and Julius Randle at +10000.
