MVP Winner: Jayson Tatum (+700)

The NBA has been hoping for one of these young players to step up in the MVP conversation, and it looks like Tatum will finally emerge as a legitimate contender for the award after being a fringe guy last season.

At the time of this article, Boston’s superstar has the fourth-best odds to win the award. As most NBA fans know, narrative has played a significant role in this category, with voter fatigue being a real factor over the last few years due to the lack of variety among finalists.

At 25 years old, Tatum has improved statistically in every single season up to this point in his career. After averaging 30.1 points per game in 2022-23, that may be a difficult trend for the elite wing to continue. That said, if Tatum puts up strong numbers once again and the Celtics play their way to the top seed in the East — and possibly the entire NBA — the star wing will have a pretty strong case in the MVP debate.

Rocket Richard Winner: David Pastrňák (+450)

Different sport, different Boston superstar.

At 27 years old, Pastrňák has established himself as a top 10 player in the game. The star winger barely missed out on winning the Rocket Richard trophy last year, finishing just three goals behind Connor McDavid.

So far this season, his biggest competition appears to be Auston Matthews, who has jumped out to a hot start. Boston is (once again) outperforming preseason expectations, and Pastrňák is unsurprisingly playing a large role in that.

If the Bruins are going to keep racking up points at this pace, their superstar will have to carry them.
