Drew Timme & Chet Holmgren of the Gonzaga Bulldogs lead the odds for the NCAA Most Outstanding Player award.

We have made it to the National Championship of the NCAA March Madness tournament. The favourite going into the tournament, Gonzaga, had two players leading the way in odds to win MOP odds before they were eliminated in the Sweet 16. Now, with Kansas being the favourite to win the tournament, their star player, Ochai Agbaji leads the odds as we begin the Final Four.

Agbaji leads the MOP odds at +240, according to the best college basketball betting sites, with North Carolina's Caleb Love behind him at +450. They are followed by UNC's Armando Bacot (+550), UNC's Brady Manek (+900) and Kansas' David McCormack (+1000) to round out the top five.

The NCAA MOP award typically goes to a player on the team that wins the March Madness tournament, so it isn’t a shock to see a Duke player – the +140 favorite to win the tournament – as the top betting options in NCAA basketball tournament Most Outstanding Player odds. The award is handed out after the NCAA championship game.

Ochai Agbaji Leads The Charge In March Madness Most Outstanding Player Odds

It makes a whole lot of sense that Agbaji tops the list for March Madness Most Outstanding Player. Kansas has been dominant the whole tournament, and they have opened up as four point favourites in the natty. Agbaji is averaging 14 points, five rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks in the tournament thus far.

Agbaji is coming off a solid performance in the Final Four victory against Duke. He led the Jayhawks to a 81-65 victory, finishing with 21 points. Since Kansas are the favourites in the National Championship, Agbaji is the favourite to win the award.

If Kansas gets it done in the National Championship, Agbaji should take home the award.

MM Most Outstanding Player: Sleeper Pick

Caleb Love (+450)

I said going into the Final Four game against Duke that Caleb Love was a sleeper pick to win MOP at +2000. After just that one game, Love's odds have shot all the way up to +450. Love has been a good all year for UNC, but has really turned it up in the tournament.

So far in this tournament, Love is averaging 20 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. He is coming off a 28 point performance in the victory against Duke but his most notable game was against UCLA in the Sweet 16. The UNC guard went off for 30 points, including 27 in the second half. 

Love and the Tar Heels are more then capable of coming out on top, as they have been all tournament.

The Tar Heels have been underdogs in every game of the tournament but their first against Marquette. They are no stranger to being an underdog. North Carolina can score with any team in the country. This championship should be fast paced and high scoring, which could benefit them.

Don't count out Love and the Tar Heels as they are 4-0 as underdogs so far this tournament!

How To Bet On March Madness Most Outstanding Player Odds

If you’re a first-time bettor in March Madness Most Outstanding Player odds, the way the odds are listed may not make sense. That’s OK. Odds Shark is here to help and will detail below how it works.

When you go to your online sportsbook that offers odds to win March Madness Most Outstanding Player, you’ll see the odds listed like this:

  • Drew Timme +550
  • Chet Holmgren +600
  • Bennedict Mathurin +1600
  • Ochai Agbaji +1700

The odds indicate what it would pay out if one of those players were to win the MOP award. Unlike a straight-up bet, or a moneyline bet, where there is a clear favorite represented by the minus sign (-), the player with the lowest odds would be the favorite. In this case, it’s Drew Timme at +550, and the rest are underdogs even though each player has a plus sign (+) prefacing his odds. For American odds, all potential payouts are predicated on $100 bets.

Using American odds, if you were to bet $100 on Timme in odds to win NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player and he wins it, you’d get $650 returned to you. Your original stake of $100 is refunded and you’re rewarded $550 in profit. 

On the flip side, if you think a player like Ochai Agbaji of the Kansas Jayhawks will win it and you bet $100, you would get $1,800 returned to you – the $100 stake and $1,700 in profit.
