The 2019 NBA MVP betting odds are out and the favorite is no surprise, LeBron James. He’s been dancing around this award for the past several seasons and he is the best player in the game right now so him being favored to win seems like a smart move. If the Lakers are going to do anything this season, it’ll be because of LeBron so this is a solid line. That said, he hasn’t won this in the past several years as there is always another player out there who plays the regular season just a bit harder. I think that will be the case again this year and this award is pretty wide open.
With the season upon us, one of the most fun things to speculate on is the Rookie of the Year race. While the NBA Championship odds may show that things might not be that competitive this year, the Rookie of the Year race is wide open and there is just so much that we don’t know right now. Who will get playing time? Who will put up good stats on bad team? Who will end up a vital part of a playoff team? There is always a lot to unpack with the rookies and the odds shed some light on that.
