All-Star MVP odds updated - Anthony Davis surprisingly short

Published Add your comment

Ahead of the All-Star weekend in New Orleans, the most recent odds for All-Star MVP have been announced by Bovada.

And while the NBA's best two players are predicted to battle it our for the honor - Kevin Durant at 3/1, and LeBron James at 7/2 - it is the most recent addition to the roster than is next in line.

New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis, who was only promoted to the All-Star game late last week, is given odds of 17/2.

With the game set to be played in his home arena, he is likely to have big support from the crowd, but with Davis' starting from the bench he has to get enough minutes first.

Of those with the shortest odds, eight of the top twelve will be representing the West on Sunday - highlighting the strong assumption that the conference will be too strong for their Eastern counterparts.

Three of the past four game MVP's are set to take part in the game, and if you want to back them to replicate the honor Dwyane Wade (winner in 2010) comes in at 25/1, Durant (2012 winner) is favorite as mentioned, while last year's winner Chris Paul is available at 18/1

And what about those least fancied for the award?

Four players are as far out as 70/1, with the debut All-Star DeMar DeRozan the most likely of the group to stand any chance - although you are braver than us if you put money on it. 

The All-Star game is scheduled for ET on Sunday February 16.
