The Boston Celtics have a commanding 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals over the Dallas Mavericks.

The latest: Jayson Tatum is an even-odds favourite to win Finals MVP, while Celtics teammate Jaylen Brown has climbed up to second on the board at +185. Despite his stellar play, Luka Doncic has fallen to a +600 underdog after Dallas dropped both games on the road to open the series.

The favourite: Tatum (+100)

With the Celtics now being -1000 favourites to win the Championship, it makes sense that Tatum is still leading the way on the MVP odds board.

The small forward picked up his play and filled the stat sheet against the Indiana Pacers in the Conference Finals but has started much slower in the Finals.

His points per game and efficiencies have taken a large dip but he's adapted and has become more of a playmaker. That was evident in Game 2, where he finished with 12 assists.

If Boston holds on, Tatum is on a shortlist of players who will be considered for MVP.

Ahead of Game 3 in Dallas, Brown is Tatum's biggest threat for the award.

MVP notes

  • Doncic has done everything in his power to help the Mavs, averaging 31.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 6.0 assists. If the Mavericks can mount a comeback in this series, this will be Doncic's award to lose.
  • Brown won Eastern Conference finals MVP after averaging 29.8 points per game on 51.7% shooting (37.0% from deep) and hasn't slowed down. Through two Finals games, the 27-year-old has scored 21.5 points per game on 55.8% shooting and has also been arguably Boston's best defender, recording a combined nine steals/blocks.
  • Jrue Holiday jumped up the table and now holds a +900 line to win the Finals MVP. That is off the back of a 26-11-3 stat line on 11-for-14 shooting in Game 2. The Celtics are so deep that it seems whoever gets hot now has a chance to win the award.
