Who Are the Favorites to Win the 2020 NBA MVP Award?
Now you have some great general tips on how to place a winning bet at a sportsbook online. However, you also need to place a bet on the right player. We are going to go over which three players we think have the best chance of winning the NBA MVP Award in 2020 below. Other players also have a shot, but we’ve narrowed it down to our top three at this point in the NBA season. The end of the regular season is approaching very quickly after all.
1. LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
King James has now, in our eyes, catapulted to the favorite to win the MVP Award this year. This is following breaking news that we’ve just received regarding the “Greek Freak” (which we will highlight below), along with his recent string of amazing performances against top-tier NBA teams.
LeBron is averaging a career-high 10.6 assists per game this year to go along with 25.7 points per game. It isn’t his highest-scoring year, and he is unlikely to win the NBA Scoring Title in 2020. However, many analysts believe that it is one of James’ best years in regards to leadership. NBA Analyst Rachel Nichols (ESPN) says that James deserves to win the MVP Award this year because he was able to successfully recruit Anthony Davis to the team. Also, she cites the success the Lakers are having as a team as a reason James is deserving of the award.
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks)
With the recent knee sprain that the Greek Freak suffered recently, we have moved Giannis Antetokounmpo solidly into the number two spot in our 2020 NBA MVP Award favorites list. He is clearly having an amazing season, averaging an astonishing 29.6 points a game to go along with 13.7 rebounds. However, many around the league are uncertain whether Antetokounmpo will be able to keep that pace up as the regular season ends and the playoffs begin. We think that the knee sprain could pose a problem for Antetokounmpo going forward this year, and that’s why we have him at number two on our list as things stand today.
That being said, if the knee sprain ends up being a minor issue for the Greek Freak and he bounces back very quickly, we have no problem moving him back up to number one on our list. He is the best player on one of the best teams in the NBA and it is only recently that people have started calling for King James to win the award instead of Antetokounmpo.
3. Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks)
Doncic has had an absolutely amazing season for the Mavericks this year. He is averaging nearly a triple-double with 28.5 points, 9.4 rebounds and 8.7 assists a game. Normally this would be a stat line that would have someone solidly in a position to win the MVP Award in the NBA. However, the strength of our top two candidates, along with the fact that they are on two of the top teams in the NBA, has us projecting Doncic to be third on our list of favorites at this point in the season.
If Doncic was on a better team we do believe that he might rank higher on this list. He is still clearly one of the best players in the NBA. No one denies that.
