The Odds-On Favorite To Win The NBA Finals MVP: Kevin Durant 7/5
Kevin Durant hasn’t played in the NBA Finals since 2012 when he was with the Thunder. Fast forward 5 years and he is the NBA Finals MVP favorite and the player that everyone loves to hate, including me. As the favorite, the NBA oddsmakers are sending a clear signal that Durant is the key for the Warriors second title in three years.
The Smart Bet To Win The NBA Finals MVP: LeBron James 2/1
LeBron James has averaged 32.5 points, 12.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists a game in the 13 NBA Finals games these past two years. Which Warrior will stop LeBron this time around?
There’s only one player in the NBA who can handle James better than fully healthy Andre Iguodala: Kawhi Leonard. But is Iguodala up to the task this time around with a wonky knee? If can’t stop King James, the task to slow down the best player in the league falls to either Draymond Green or Kevin Durant.
The Sharp Pick To Win The NBA Finals MVP: Kyrie Irving 10/1
Kyrie Irving outplayed Stephen Curry in the last three games of the 2016 NBA Finals. Can he repeat the feat this season?
Last season, Cleveland became the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 deficit and win the title. In those final three games, Irving averaged 30 points and shot .523 from the field (and .529 from 3-point range). Curry, meanwhile, averaged 24 points but shot .367 from the field and .357 from deep. Curry averaged four turnovers to Irving’s three in those games.
