And while the debate about who is the NBA’s best player resumes with this matchup, when it comes to who will win the Finals MVP, Stephen Curry is the clear favorite.
According to online sportsbook Sports Interaction, Curry is the clear-cut favorite at -120 to win the 2016 NBA Finals MVP award. He is the only player laying chalk in NBA Finals MVP odds.
The two-time defending league MVP is averaging 26.7 points per game, on 45.8 percent shooting, including 40.7 percent from three-point range during the postseason.
The player with the next best odds to win the Finals MVP is not surprisingly, LeBron James, currently on the board at +225.
That price could be a bit of a steal considering the “King’s” stats in last year’s Finals, when he averaged 35.8 points, 13.3 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
Which made last year’s Finals MVP announcement of Andre Iguodala a little shocking, whom basically got the award for defending LeBron to those numbers. This time around, Iguodala is on board at +5,000 to win the award in back-to-back years.
