Two-time WNBA MVP and reigning Finals MVP A’ja Wilson has shifted to the odds-on MVP favorite after just two games.

The 6’4″ Las Vegas Aces star has -110 odds at FanDuel. Reigning MVP Breanna Stewart of the New York Liberty and the Connecticut Sun’s Alyssa Thomas are each next with +850 odds.

Wilson has led the Aces in points and rebounds in each of their first two wins, as they are also playing without point guard Chelsea Gray. Wilson is averaging 26.0 points and 11.5 rebounds, ranking in the top three of the league in each category.

Wilson has also won the Defensive Player of the Year award in each of the past two seasons.

She and the Aces are also +100 championship favorites, trying to become just the second WNBA team ever to win three straight titles.
