RJ Bell: “We have the MVP odds and this HURTS LeBron’s chances big time. Before COVID and before the break LeBron was gaining -- he was like Man o’ War the horse coming on strong.

Giannis was '$25 wins you a dollar', so he was a big favorite a couple days ago, but now it’s '$50 to win you a dollar', so it’s almost like this thing is locked up. If you think Giannis is going to win, you bet $100 and only win 2 dollars, and the amount you have to lay has doubled just in the last 24 hours.” (Full Audio Above)

Teams had played approximately 64-66 games out of 82, with 16-18 games still to play, but the NBA has said that the final 8 games will not count towards individual statistics, nor will factor in MVP and Rookie of the Year awards.
