2022-23 NBA MVP ODDS
- Nikola Jokic -105
- Joel Embiid +260
- Luka Doncic +550
- Jayson Tatum +1000
- Giannis Antetokounmpo +1300
- Ja Morant +3000
- Kevin Durant +4000
The Most Valuable Player of the Year Award is given to the player who had the most successful regular-season, which usually includes how the player's performance reflects on the team's success. Nikola Jokic won his second straight MVP for the Denver Nuggets last season, the first player to win for Denver. An international player has won the award four straight seasons, with James Harden as the last American to win in 2017-18 with the Houston Rockets.
2022-23 NBA ROOKIE OF THE YEAR ODDS
The Rookie of the Year Award is given to the first-year player who has the most successful regular-season. Scottie Barnes for the Toronto Raptors won the last award, despite a late-season rush from Cade Cunnignham who was the first pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. A guard won the award five straight seasons before the forward Barnes, with Karl-Anthony Towns being the last center to win which was in 2015-16.
2022-23 NBA SIXTH MAN OF THE YEAR ODDS
- Russell Westbrook +115
- Malcolm Brogdon +175
- Tyrese Maxey +600
- Norman Powell +1200
- Bennedict Mathurin +2500
- Jordan Poole +5000
The Sixth Man of the Year Award is given to the bench player who sees the most productive regular season. Tyler Herro ran away with the award last year, and is the opening favorite to see a repeat. However, Jordan Poole of the Golden State Warriors follows closely behind. The Western Conference has won the award six straight seasons.
2022-23 NBA DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR ODDS
The Defensive Player of the Year Award is given to the player who sees the best defensive performance throughout the regular season, typically highlighted with steals, blocks and/or rebounds. Marcus Smart of the Boston Celtics received last year's honors, marking the first time DPOY has been awarded to a guard since 1996. However, Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz has dominated this award, having won in three of the last four seasons.
2022-23 NBA MOST IMPROVED PLAYER ODDS
- Lauri Markkanen -150
- Shai Gilgeous-Alexander +135
- Jalen Brunson +2500
- Nicolas Claxton +2500
- Tyrese Haliburton +4000
The Most Improved Player of the Year Award is given to the player who has shown the most progress during the regular-season. This is a very broad and judgmental award, as it has been given to players who have seen a vast improvment over the course of a year while also being given to players who showed steady progress but lifted their team's overall success. A forward has won the award in three of the last four seasons, with Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies winning the award during the 2021-22 season.
2022-23 NBA COACH OF THE YEAR ODDS
The Coach of the Year Award is given to the coach who has had the most impressive regular season. The award is also given to a coach who has shown impressive growth for a club that struggled the prior season. Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams won the award in 2021-22 by dominating the Western Conference with a record of 64-18, the best mark in the entire league by an eight-game margin. However, Celtics' head coach Ime Udoka opens as the favorite this season after leading Boston to the Finals last year.
