LeBron James Becomes MVP Favorite At Vegas Sportsbook 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 27, 2021 6:07 am

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook made LeBron James the betting favorite for NBA MVP on Monday at 4-1 odds.


James, who began the season in the top six of MVP betting, is currently the favorite or the runner-up at most sportsbooks. 


"People have to be more in awe of what he's doing the older he gets. ...  I think that could sway some people who didn't vote for him last year," said SuperBook NBA oddsmaker Jeff Sherman.


DraftKings has James and Luka Doncic as co-favorites at 5-1, with James training Doncic at William Hill.


James has not won the MVP since 2013. He would be the oldest MVP in league history should he win this season.

Lebron has deserved more MVPs. James Harden's numbers plummeting to the basement this year helps. Wonder how long Harden will put up with only averaging around 20 a night?
