LeBron James is somehow the underdog once again.

William Hill is the first Nevada sportsbook to offer betting odds for Finals MVP, and it likes Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant as the most likely winner.

Durant is listed at 7-5, followed by teammate Stephen Curry at 8-5. James, who has won the award in each of his three championships, is 2-1.

Technically, the Boston Celtics could still win the title provided they first overcome a 3-1 deficit against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but no members of the Celtics were given odds to win Finals MVP.

Player Odds
Kevin Durant 7-5
Stephen Curry 8-5
LeBron James 2-1
Draymond Green 17-2
Kyrie Irving 10-1
Kevin Love 15-1
Klay Thompson 25-1
Tristan Thompson 60-1
JR Smith 150-1
Kyle Korver 150-1
Andre Iguodala 300-1
Deron Williams 500-1
Iman Shumpert 500-1
Channing Frye 500-1
Patrick McCaw 500-1
David West 500-1
Shaun Livingston 500-1
Field 500-1
JaVale McGee 1000-1
Zaza Pachulia 1000-1
