Joel Embiid has been on an absolute tear this month. After his 51-point performance against the Timberwolves last night, he’s averaging 41.4 points in eight December contests 🤯.
As a result, Embiid has seen his MVP odds go from +750 on Dec. 1 to now +200. After his +350 to +200 swing following the Timberwolves game, he’s the NBA MVP favorite for the first time all season. It’s also the first time that Nikola Jokic hasn’t been atop the NBA MVP odds board all season.
