Stephen Curry has been on another planet in the scoring department lately, averaging nearly 40 points per game in April.

Curry's torrid run includes 54 made 3-pointers in his last six outings, and the oddsmakers have taken notice.

Last week, we had Curry listed as high as +6600 odds to take home a third MVP title.

While Jokic is an overwhelming, odds-on favorite at -350, Curry's chances have dropped immensely.

Additionally in the NBA Awards odds world, LaMelo Ball finds himself atop the Rookie of the Year leaderboard once again with news recently surfacing that he may return from injury in the next few weeks.

Anthony Edwards moved into the ROY favorite position after Ball broke his wrist, but the possibility of Ball returning has prompted betting on him and flipped the odds.

Also below are the latest Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved Player odds.

(These are opening odds from the morning of April 20. Some odds have changed since then.)

Nikola Jokic -350

Joel Embiid +275

Giannis Antetokounmpo +1600
