NBA Weekly Betting Guide, Title Odds, MVP and Rookie of the Year Favorites

The big story in the NBA so far this week was the altercation between Lebron James and Isaiah Stewart that resulted in a one-game suspension for James and a two-game suspension for Stewart. Lebron received his first suspension in his career which only adds to the Laker’s frustrating slow start out of the gates this season.

In the Eastern Conference, we have had several surprises like the Cavs, Bulls, and Wizards that look like they have staying power and give the East a much-needed boost in competitiveness after years of only producing a few contenders.

NBA Title Odds

Warriors

The Warriors hope to win a title in the Chase Center after winning several at Oracle Arena

  • Nets (+260)
  • Warriors (+600)
  • Bucks (+700)
  • Lakers (+900)
  • Jazz (+1000)
  • Heat (+1200)

The Nets are still the favorites to take home the title which is surprising considering the Warriors 15-2 start. Kevin Durant looks 100% and the oddsmakers must factor in Kyrie Irving rejoining the team at some point this year to give the Nets an additional playmaker. The Bucks have battled injury issues and are currently in 7th in the East but still have the third-best odds to win the title.

Games of the Week

Key Matchups This Week

Mavericks vs. Clippers

The Mavs and Clippers play tonight in Los Angeles and it looks like both teams will be in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference this year. The Clippers are likely without Kawaii Leonard for the whole season but they showed last year they have the roster to make a deep run with Paul George running the show. The Mavs are looking to break through into the league’s elite and get back into the finals for the first time since 2011.

Warriors vs. 76ers

The 76ers took a nosedive in the Eastern Conference standings in the last couple of weeks and will look to get back on track against the 15-2 Warriors squad that is looking like the Warriors of old once again. Joel Embiid is still out from Covid and his absence has shown how vital he is to the Sixers chances this season.

Suns vs Cavs

The Suns have been playing great basketball as of late and are right behind the Warriors in the West at 14-3. Deondre Ayton is playing for a big contract and is averaging 16ppg and 12 rebounds a game and Devin Booker is off to another great start averaging 22.4ppg. The Cavs have been one of the biggest surprises coming out of the Eastern Conference this year with Darius Garland and Collin Sexton forming one of the best backcourts in all of basketball.

Bucks at Nuggets (Friday)

The Bucks and Nuggets were both picked to finish at the top of their conferences but are barely above .500 as they look to get healthy and build some momentum heading into the second half of the season. Nikola Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo will face off in a matchup of former MVPs and bring an old school toughness to the league that is become more finesse in recent years.

NBA MVP Odds

Kevin Durant

Durant looks 100% healthy again has the Nets as the favorites to win the title

  • Steph Curry +200
  • Kevin Durant +500
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo +700
  • Nikola Jokic +850
  • Luka Doncic +850
  • Jimmy Butler +2200

A pair of former teammates in Curry and Durant are the favorites to win the MVP this year as both players have not slowed down as they have moved into their 30s and faced injuries in recent years. If the Nets and Warriors end up meeting up in the Finals we could have one of the best storylines and series of all time that should generate plenty of points.

NBA Rookie of the Year Odds

  • Scottie Barnes +200
  • Cade Cunningham +250
  • Evan Mobley +275
  • Jalen Green +500
  • Josh GIddey +1600

Scottie Barnes has been the most impressive rookie so far this season and is averaging 14.6PPG, 8RPG, and 3 assists so far. Barnes was drafted 4th out of Florida State and has given some hope to Raptor fans who are in the process of a rebuild since winning the title in 2019.
