Las Vegas has given Russell Westbrook (7/2) and Kevin Durant (9/2) the best odds of winning MVP next season.
After Westbrook and Durant, the list features Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James and James Harden. It’s still pretty early in the offseason and anything could happen between now and the NBA’s opening night, but Westbrook and Durant are the best bets to take home the award. With the addition of Paul George, Westbrook’s usage should go down but it should still be very possible for him to put up monstrous numbers and Kevin Durant is the best scorer in the league so he should never be counted out. The former teammates will find themselves once again battling each other not only in the playoffs, but for awards as well.
