The latest odds for this upcoming NBA season’s MVP award are out. As always, there are some great bets to be placed. But it has been a bit since one has been this glaringly obvious. LeBron James is coming in at +700 behind three other players and tied with two players who are being way overvalued:
Given how open the NBA and the West will be next season, we should see the most motivated regular-season version of LeBron we have in years. Anthony Davis and Danny Green will help him rack of extra assists resulting in some monstrous stat lines. The teams that could and should finish ahead of the Lakers in the West will not have an MVP candidate.
The Nuggets and Jazz do not have that player yet. Kawhi Leonardtakes too many nights off and his numbers will go down sharing the load with Paul George, who puts the ball in the hole at a high volume.
