The stage is thinning as the Boston Celtics have advanced to the NBA Finals and the Dallas Mavericks appear on the verge. As a result, the Finals MVP odds board has been shaken up.

Jayson Tatum remains the one to catch as the Finals MVP favorite, despite Luka Doncic taking command in the Wild West. Let's check out the latest NBA odds to win Finals MVP with one Conference Finals series hanging in the balance.

NBA Finals MVP favorites Jayson Tatum (-105)

It's been fairly smooth sailing for Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics, with an NBA-high 12.8 net rating in the playoffs so far, putting them into the Eastern Conference Finals after last Thursday's Game 5 win. 

With the Celtics the betting favorites to win it all, it makes sense why Tatum is the presumptive player to claim Finals MVP. He was relatively quiet in the first round (21.8 points on 41.6% shooting) but ramped up his production (if not his efficiency) against Cleveland, and books are counting on Tatum to show up when all the chips are down. 

But it was Jaylen Brown who earned MVP honors in the Eastern Conference Finals vs. the Indiana Pacers. That doesn't mean Tatum was absent, though, as he finished things off with a fantastic showing in Game 4, scoring 26 points with 13 rebounds and eight assists. When the lights shine brightest, Tatum can answer the call.

Luka Doncic (+255)

Anthony Edwards would still be in this spot had the Minnesota Timberwolves gotten the upper hand in the West Finals vs. the Dallas Mavericks like initially expected. You gotta get to the Finals to be the Finals MVP, after all. With momentum — and NBA Championship odds — on Dallas' side, Luka Doncic is now drawing the best odds in the West.

Doncic was brilliant in Friday's emphatic Game 2 win, not only tossing up a 30-point triple-double but draining the go-ahead stepback three with seconds remaining over an outstretched and helpless DPOY Rudy Gobert. 

After appearing on Dallas' injury report hours before Game 3, Doncic came out firing with a team-high 33 points (equal to Kyrie Irving's output) as the Mavs took a 3-0 series lead.

NBA Finals MVP odds explained

Sportsbooks will post NBA Finals MVP odds as early as the beginning of the playoffs. These NBA futures are constantly adjusted throughout the postseason depending on how well players perform, in accordance with their team's success. Sportsbooks will also adjust the NBA Awards odds based on handle and liability to certain players.

NBA Finals MVP odds will usually look like this:

Kevin Durant +410

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to profit $410 if Durant takes home the NBA Finals MVP Award. If it's close to the end of the NBA Finals and a player has stood out as the obvious MVP of the series, they'll have a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds like this: 

LeBron James -155

This means that if you bet on LeBron to win Finals MVP, you would have needed to bet $155 to profit $100.

All of the odds listed above are in American format, but if you prefer decimal or fractional odds, simply plug them into our odds converter tool.

NBA Finals MVP trends

Here are some trends you'll want to keep in mind when placing a bet on NBA Finals MVP:

Only one player (Jerry West, 1969) has ever won Finals MVP on the losing team. Nikola Jokic's 2023 Finals MVP win was the first by a center since Shaquille O'Neal in 2002. Forwards have won 10 of the past 12 Finals MVPs. Popular NBA futures odds NBA championship odds NBA MVP odds NBA Rookie of the Year odds NBA Most Improved Player odds NBA Defensive Player of the Year odds Previous NBA Finals MVP award winners

The adage of needing versatile forwards in today's NBA rings especially true when looking at the recent Finals MVP winners. Despite Giannis being one of the most position-amorphous players in NBA history, eight of the past 10 Finals MVPs have been, at least by some definition, small forwards.

Scouting basketball betting websites should be a breeze, but new bettors often feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available. Here are the must-have basketball betting site features you should target before placing your wagers.

Best odds: Not all sportsbooks are created equally, especially when it comes to odds. Finding the best price for your basketball bets is key to a successful betting strategy. 

Live betting: Watching betting lines move in real-time and comparing statistics allows you to jump into the action at just the right moment.

Fast payouts: Accessing your hard-earned funds shouldn't feel like breaking a full-court press. It's important to choose a sportsbook that offers fast and reliable money withdrawals post-game.

Safe money transactions: The days of placing bets with bookies in shadowy back rooms are long over. Major online sportsbooks boast state-of-the-art security measures like SSL data encryption, and each holds a legal operating license from registered authorities.

Best NBA Finals MVP betting promos

Betting boosts are special promotions offered by legal sports betting sites that increase the odds for a specific game, event, or prop, designed to give you better value on your bets or encourage you to sign up for a new sportsbook with unique rewards and offerings.

They can be a great way for bettors to get better value for their wagers, as the odds are temporarily increased, thereby increasing a potential payout. The promotions are usually limited to a specific period and are subject to terms and conditions, so it's always important to read the fine print for more details.

Types of odds boosts

There are a number of different types of betting boosts available, with some targeting specific games, some aimed at specific leagues, and some just enticing users to try a new sportsbook. Here are the most common types of betting boosts:

Odds boost: When a sportsbook enhances the value of a specifically chosen player prop or a curated parlay/SGP, offering better odds than if you normally bet or created the wager yourself. Profit boosts: When you are given a token that increases the value of any bet you want (such as a 25% boost on one Super Bowl bet). Sometimes these tokens are for all bets, while sometimes they have specific criteria (such parlays/SGPs only or bets above a certain price). Sign-up offers: Operators offer benefits such as free bonus bets after your first wager, bonus bets offered as insurance if your first bet loses, an initial account deposit match, or even giving you discounts on other services for signing up with a sportsbook.
