2024 Most Oustanding Player odds: Donovan Clingan, not Zach Edey, early favorite

The Final Four is here, and bettors can now bet on the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament, in addition to wagering on March Madness championship futures.

When it comes to the MOP market, Purdue’s Zach Edey is probably the player that comes to mind for most.

Before the tournament started, the 7-foot-4 senior was a virtual lock to win the Wooden Award. And in his squad’s 2024 postseason run, he’s been unstoppable, racking up 30 points per contest.

That said, the Purdue big man isn’t the favorite to win the prestigious award.

Let’s check out the latest MOP odds at BetMGM.*

Donovan Clingan, UConn: +180 (bet $10 to win $28 total)

UConn HC Dan Hurley on their success and dominance

One key note, UConn is favored to win the title, hence why Clingan is a small favorite to win MOP, despite Edey’s better tournament stats thus far.
