2023-24 NBA Awards Odds and Predictions

2023 NBA Awards

The NBA playoffs are less than a month away, so it’s a perfect time to look at the NBA Awards odds for the regular season. According to the latest prices, many of the awards have a clear favorite right now. However, there is still a bit of runway left to make a move before the regular season concludes in two weeks.

You can find all of these odds at the best NBA betting sites, and they could change over the next few weeks. Keeping an eye on these is a good way to get the most value out of your NBA awards predictions.

Let’s jump straight into our NBA season award predictions and investigate the most up-to-date odds. The following 2023-24 NBA season awards odds are courtesy of BetUS:

NBA 6th Man Of The Year Odds And Predictions

Malik Monk-140
Naz Reid+100
Norman Powell+1200
Bobby Portis+4000

The 2023-24 NBA Sixth Man of the Year is coming down to the wire. Malik Monk’s MCL sprain has allowed Naz Reid to pull within striking distance.

Due to the injury, which will likely keep him out for the rest of the regular season, Monk’s Sixth Man of the Year odds have shifted considerably.

Last month, he was a -225 favorite to win the award. At one point, he was near -1000 odds to win Sixth Man of the Year honors.

As of April 4, Monk’s odds are down to -140. Reid is getting closer, and his recent performances are helping his cause. The Minnesota Timberwolves are winning games, with Reid contributing to these victories.

In four of the Timberwolves’ previous six games, he has scored at least of 18 points. He was a difference-maker over the Houston Rockets, with 25 points, six rebounds, and two assists off the bench.

Reid has more time to bolster his resume while Monk is on the sidelines nursing his knee. At even money, you should consider him for the award.

NBA Coach Of The Year Odds And Predictions

Mark Daigneault-250
Chris Finch+350
Jamahl Mosley+650
Joe Mazzula+3000
Rick Carlisle+15000

Mark Daigneault remains the odds-on favorite to win the 2023-24 NBA Coach of the Year. The head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder emerged as the early favorite after the Thunder got off to a fast start. His odds have risen modestly from -215 to -250 over the last month.

Adrian Griffin was second to Daigneault in October, but he was replaced by Milwaukee. The team appointed Doc Rivers despite having a 30-13 record at the time.

Since my last NBA awards odds update, Joe Mazzulla’s Coach of the Year chances have tanked the most. The Boston Celtics’ Mazzulla is now a +3000 longshot after his odds after being one of the contenders behind Daigneault for the majority of the year.

It’s nothing to do with his team’s performance, as the Celtics are favored to win the 2023-24 NBA Championship. However, Daigneault took a young Thunder squad and made them into one of the best teams in the West.

Currently, at 52-33, the Thunder are tied for the second-best record in the Western Conference. They are just a half-game within the defending champion Denver Nuggets for the lead.

Considering what Daigneault has done with this team, he is a strong bet at -250.

NBA Defensive Player Of The Year Odds And Predictions

Rudy Gobert-1200
Victor Wenbanyama+750
Anthony Davis+10000
Bam Adebayo+10000
Jarrett Allen+10000

NBA DPOY odds have Gobert as the runaway favorite to win his fourth Defensive Player of the Year award. At -1200 odds, Gobert has an implied probability of 92.3%. The Frenchman is in the clear to win his fourth NBA Defensive Player of the Year title.

The Timberwolves’ center won DPOY with the Utah Jazz in 2018, 2019, and 2021. After opening as a +1800 longshot this season, Gobert is in the driver’s seat to win his first with the Timberwolves.

The native of Saint-Quentin, France, is second in the NBA, with an average of 12.9 rebounds per game. Although Gobert is sixth, with 2.1 blocks per game, teams are doing their best to avoid the 7-foot-1 big man.

He does so many things on defense that don’t necessarily show up on the stats sheet. As a result, the Timberwolves lead the NBA in opposition points per game at 106.2 with Gobert as the anchor.

Wembanyama, San Antonio’s dazzling rookie, leads the league with 3.4 blocks and is a future DPOY winner, but it might be too soon for him. Nevertheless, there isn’t any value on Gobert at -1200.

Stay patient and focus on other NBA individual awards instead.

NBA In-Season Tournament MVP

This award has been decided already as the Los Angeles Lakers won the inaugural In-Season Tournament, defeating the Indiana Pacers 123-109 in the final game. LeBron James won the inaugural MVP award. The odds for James were +700 heading into the quarterfinal round of the tournament, after opening at +3000 before the tournament. Golden State’s Stephen Curry was my pick with odds of +2500 ahead of the In-Season Tournament, while Denver’s Nikola Jokic was favored at +1200. In the end, it was “King” James that added another accolade to his glittering resume. Good job if you saw that coming and made some money.

NBA Rookie Of The Year Odds And Predictions

Victor WenbanyamaOFF
Chet HolmgrenOFF

The 2023-24 NBA Rookie of the Year race is just about all wrapped up. A two-player race is shrunk into an undisputed winner. In March, Victor Wembanyama had a clear advantage over Chet Holmgren at -4000 odds. He was putting the finishing touches on what was projected to be his from the start.

In 67 games with the San Antonio Spurs, Wembanyama has averaged 21.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 3.5 blocks per game. He’s the first rookie since former Spur, David Robinson, to record a triple-double with blocks.

Wembanyama is also the first rookie to record 25+ points, 10+ rebounds, 5+ assists, and 5+ blocks in back-to-back games. There have been several milestones for “Wemby” this season that are worth the glowing accolades.

In any other year, Chet Holmgren would have been the easy pick for NBA Rookie of the Year. He was unfortunately in the same draft class with a generational talent.

With the NBA awards odds for this bet off the board, oddsmakers want to limit their exposure to Wembanyama bets in what appears to be a lock. Look elsewhere for other 2023-24 NBA awards wagers.

NBA Most Improved Player of the Year Odds And Predictions

Tyrese Maxey-250
Coby White+180
Jalen Williams+3000
Jonathan Kuminga+20000

In October, NBA MIP odds had Maxey as the second-favorite at +1200, behind Brooklyn’s Mikal Bridges at +700. Maxey is now the top contender at -250 after leading the team in Joel Embiid’s absence due to a knee injury.

Maxey’s odds haven’t budged much more in the past month. He has been roughly a -220 to -250 favorite for the majority of 2024. With the Rockets’ Alperen Sengun out with a sprained ankle, the door opened for the 76ers’ guard to open up his lead.

And yet, I see another option. Chicago’s Coby White has had an up-and-down career in the Windy City. However, when Zach Lavine got injured, White stepped up and went from averaging 9.8 points in October, to 15.3 points in November, and then he took off.

Currently, White is averaging an impressive 19.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game. Last season, White’s numbers were down, with an average of 9.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists. He recorded a career-high 15.2 points per game in his sophomore year in 2020-21.

Although Maxey has improved his game in Philadelphia, there hasn’t been substantial improvement quite like White’s work this season. White’s Rookie of the Year odds are oozing with value at +180.

NBA Regular Season MVP Odds And Predictions

Nikola Jokić-1500
Luka Doncic+800
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander+2000
Jayson Tatum+10000
Giannis Antetokounmpo+15000

In October, the NBA MVP odds had Denver’s Jokic as the favorite at +430 to win his third MVP. However, over the first 35 games or so, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid was heading towards another MVP award. He started at +800, but Embiid was brilliant, averaging 35.3 points, 11.3 boards and 5.7 assists, along with 1.8 blocks.

The problem is that Embiid has been out since January 30th because of his knee and stands to be the biggest loser of the 65-game rule. The Serbian big man is locked in and ready to collect another NBA MVP. Jokic’s MVP odds have skyrocketed from -250 in mid-March to -1500 in the first week of April.

Luka Doncic of Dallas is also in the mix, as he was +550 in October and +800 now. The Thunder’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s odds have regressed the most, as he had the second-best MVP odds in our last update, shifting from +325 to +2000.

Still, it all comes back to Jokic, who is now at -250 to win the MVP award. The Nuggets star is putting up 26.4 points, 12.3 rebounds, and nine assists. Additionally, Denver has the second-shortest 2023-24 NBA Championship odds at +365. Jokic is unstoppable, whether he has to score or get his teammates involved, and he’s playing with the confidence of a two-time MVP.

Despite little value on Jokic at -1500, he should be a -3000 favorite, so the pick makes sense.
