NBA: Betting the MVP Market

As the 2023-24 NBA season kicks off on Tuesday night, the experts at Bet the EDGE are here to share their early season MVP predictions with a focus on SEO optimization, creativity, and uniqueness.

Jay Croucher (@croucherJD) initiated the MVP discussion by clearly defining the market. “If Nikola Jokic prioritizes the regular season, he has a high chance of winning MVP. However, if he doesn’t put much effort into it, then Tatum or Giannis are strong contenders, making them my Tier One choices.”

Croucher has a strong belief in Tatum’s abilities and is actively advocating for the Celtics’ star. “Tatum is the most intriguing player to discuss because the Celtics have the highest win total. They have a clear advantage, capable of finishing five or six wins ahead of the league, which would establish them as the best team.”

Drew Dinsick, on the other hand, isn’t quite convinced about Tatum’s MVP potential. “If the Suns dominate the Western Conference and grab the first seed, Durant could overshadow Tatum. Similarly, if the Warriors secure the top seed, Curry would outshine Tatum due to the perception that they are better players. Unless Tatum delivers a Finals MVP-like performance while leading the Celtics to a championship, people will continue to exclude him from the MVP conversation. That’s just my gut feeling.”

Jay understands Drew’s hesitation. “It’s a challenging situation since Jokic and Embiid don’t need to do anything extraordinary. They just need to stick to their usual performances. However, Tatum needs to demonstrate significant improvement and take a leap forward that we haven’t seen before. I understand the concern.”

When it comes to analyzing and discussing NBA games and future markets, Jay Croucher and Drew Dinsick are unmatched. Tune in to Bet the EDGE throughout the season to join the conversation.
