For the first time in his young career, Jayson Tatum is the favorite to be named MVP.

Tatum's Celtics are a on a tear, reeling off seven straight victories en route to the league's best record.

Our MVP odds looked different Tuesday morning than they did Monday, when Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic were basically co-favorites. Now, there is a crowded trio at the top of the board, led by Tatum.

Additionally, it looks as if Paolo Banchero has Rookie of the Year locked up, despite not playing for more than a week due to an ankle injury.


Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 37 points for the second consecutive night Tuesday to boost his Most Improved Player chances while Russell Westbrook remains the heavy favorite for Sixth Man of the Year.
