Community Shootaround: MVP Favorite

Russell Westbrook is the favorite to repeat as MVP, according to odds released by Bovada, an online gambling site.

Westbrook is listed as +350, which means a bettor who wagers $100 would get back $350 if Westbrook wins the award. Kevin Durant is close behind at +450, followed by Kawhi Leonard at +650. LeBron James at +750 and James Harden at +800 round out the top five.

Westbrook cruised to the trophy last season with a record-setting 42 triple-doubles. His production may fall this year with the addition of Paul George in Oklahoma City, but he could help his case if the Thunder improve on their 47-35 record.

Bovada lays odds on 39 candidates, ranging down to Dirk Nowitzki, Andre Drummond, Dwight Howard, Hassan Whiteside and Jeff Teague, who are all listed at +25,000. Among players who changed teams over the offseason, George and new Rockets point guard Chris Paul are tied for the best odds at +2,500.

Given the changes that have taken place across the league, who is you favorite to take home MVP honors for 2017/18? Please leave your comments below.

      You fool, with your history of cursing people Giannis is due for a career ending injury!

    Greek freak might be a good bet. Got to check the board. He is a stud and a sleeper.

    I can’t see Westbrook getting another MVP even if he averages a triple double again, unless they win 60 games.
    Durant will be a hard sell for MVP being on the warriors.
    Writers are likely still bored with giving LeBron MVPs.
    Harden has a good chance if he repeats last year’s numbers but Paul is definitely gonna hurt those chances.

    I’d definitely say Kawai has the best chance.

    I’m kind of hoping LeBron wins it and has a ridiculous season to cement his status as top 2 all time but realistically I think it’s a toss up this year since the Rockets have Harden and CP3, Warriors have Curry and KD still, and Thunder have Westbrook and Paul George. Having another superstar on your team doesn’t usually do well for MVP standings so I think especially if Kyrie gets traded, it could go to Bron or Giannis.

    Sorry, but that image is ridiculous. Westbrook dressing like an old lady.
