With the end of the regular season just 17 days away, the major awards races are starting to heat up. Let’s take a look at the potential MVP contenders, with this awesome interactive chart from @SteefCrypto:
This @NBA MVP Race is getting spicy🌶️
Contender 15,000 LE Moments (today):
🏆$86 | Dončić
🏆$72 | Curry
🏆$48 | Jokić
🏆$42 | Giannis
🏆$36 | Embiid
Charts by @SteefCrypto
Data from @EvaluateMarket https://t.co/6CbAzL5EgU
It’s interesting to note the fluctuations and large price difference between Luka Doncic and Steph Curry from the field. Especially when Nikola Jokic currently is a heavy favorite (-500) on the betting markets, with Joel Embiid having the second best odds. Chalk it up to the big man bias we frequently see on the NBA Top Shot marketplace, perhaps?
