Mavericks star Luka Doncic, the 2023-24 regular-season scoring champion, will take the court for Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night (8 p.m. ET on ABC). The public may have backed off on Dallas’ odds to win the NBA Finals, but Doncic is still among the favorites for the Bill Russell Trophy, given to the Finals MVP. Let’s analyze Luka Doncic props and series-long options, as the Mavs aim to rebound from their 107-89 loss to the Celtics in Game 1.

As of this publishing, the best NBA Finals MVP odds for Doncic are currently . In recent years, this market has served as a more valuable way to bet on the series’ victor. In fact, seven of the last eight Finals MVPs were favored to win the award.

Kawhi Leonard is the lone exception, but even he had the best odds (+235) among all Raptors when Toronto upset Golden State in the 2019 NBA Finals.

At most of the best sports betting sites, Doncic’s pre-flop MVP odds were greater than the Maverick’s odds of winning the title. That’s still the case, with the latter price tag set at .

In Game 1, Boston shot 12.9 percentage points better than Dallas from behind the arc. Kristaps Porzingis, the Celtics stretch-five who returned from a calf strain suffered in the first round, accounted for two triples. The Mavs’ perimeter defense may continue to undergo negative regression. Their opponents shot just a 28.3% 3-point clip over their first three postseason series.

Oddly enough, Doncic’s ex-teammate saw his chances of winning Finals MVP increase dramatically after his 20-point, six-rebound, three-block performance. Porzingis’ odds shrunk from +5000 to in the process.

For bettors who still believe that the Mavs will upend the Celtics, Doncic’s MVP odds have merit.

It’s worth noting that Doncic (thoracic contusion) missed Dallas’ morning shootaround on Sunday. Nevertheless, as of this afternoon, the market’s lack of line movement suggests that he’ll take the court in Game 2.

Before Game 1 tipped off, I discussed why there was value in Doncic’s -190 odds to finish as the series’ leading scorer. Following his 30-point outing (albeit on 26 attempts) on Thursday evening, those odds rose to -1000 at BetMGM Sportsbook. If you’re interested in betting on Doncic to manufacture the most points in Game 2, the best odds available are .

However, Boston may have found Doncic’s kryptonite. Celtics wing Jaylen Brown guarded Doncic for 51.1% of defensive possessions in Game 1. In that time, Doncic scored just eight points on four made baskets. He also failed to tally a single assist while accumulating two turnovers, with Brown picking his pocket both times.

For reference, Brown’s Finals MVP odds are lined at after opening in the +700 range.
