Embiid Odds

Before Tuesday’s NBA slate tipped off, Joel Embiid sat atop the odds board (-210) among NBA MVP picks. However, he still wasn’t considered a runaway favorite. Let’s delve into how his NBA MVP odds have promptly shifted — with five days left in the regular season. Click on any of the odds below to place a wager.

2023 NBA MVP Odds

In a preview of a potential second-round NBA playoff series, Embiid tallied a 52-point, 13-rebound, 6-assist performance against the Boston Celtics. His NBA MVP odds subsequently saw a significant adjustment as a result.

Keep in mind, Embiid has finished as the MVP runner-up in consecutive seasons. Nuggets star Nikola Jokić took home the award both times. But Embiid, who’s posting 33.3 points, 10.2, and 4.2 assists per game, likely locked up the honors this time around. Embiid showcased a +650 price tag at the start of the campaign, and his odds even stretched out to +1500 on Dec. 1.

The 7-foot, 280-pound also owns the league’s 12th-most defensive win shares (0.13) among individual players. For context, he’s a tick ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Donovan Mitchell in that department. Antetokounmpo won the 2020 NBA Defensive Player of the Year to boot.

Nevertheless, Embiid’s NBA MVP picks doesn’t necessarily translate into postseason success. Philly’s struggles in non-Embiid minutes are well-noted, as 2018 NBA MVP James Harden is the only Sixer with a positive net rating with Embiid off the court in 2022-23.
