In just a few weeks, NBA teams will open up training camp, as they officially begin the long journey that will be the 2017-18 season. Ahead of camps opening up, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook has released the latest update on their MVP odds.
Coming in as the current favorite at 4/1 odds? Kevin Durant.
The favorites, per the Westgate:

Unsurprisingly, now that he is out from under LeBron James' shadow, Kyrie Irving's MVP odds have surged. Just a month ago, he was a long shot at 50/1, but now, the Celtics' new point guard has the ninth best odds at 15/1.
Irving still has plenty of ultra talented players he'll have to contend with, but if he's able to lead Boston to another No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, he figures to be right up there in the MVP race.
