Giannis Antetokounmpo may not want anyone calling him this for the next year, but the Milwaukee Bucks star holds the distinction of being the league MVP following his torrid 2018-19 campaign. If you ask oddsmakers, heading into the 2019-20 season, he is the favorite to defend his crown and become the first back-to-back MVP since Steph Curry.

With the obvious caveat that there’s a lot that can happen between now and the start of the upcoming season, Antetokounmpo sits at 3/1 to win the award once again at BetOnline. He’s followed closely by the man who last did this, as Curry boasts 5/1 odds to capture his third MVP award. The rest of the top-five is rounded out by the guy from whom Antetokounmpo won the award this past season, James Harden (7/1), the reigning NBA Finals MVP, Kawhi Leonard (8/1), and a four-time league MVP, LeBron James (9/1).
