    Grab Embiid +600 to win the MVP NOW!

    After last nightís performance, Iím all over this.

    Jokic cannot take over a game defensively like Embiid did last night. Thatís the difference between the 2

    That's a great number? Which book?

    Personally don't think he will get it though.

    Good luck

    Have +1000 with a local. Placed in November. Now or never for Embiid.

    Still think he will fumble it away.

    He deserves a shot at it. I hate how the media key in on one player for these Awards and don't really let it be a fair competition

    sure has value.

    i think jokic wins for sure if he avgs a triple double regardless of defense.

    Just noticed Embid now -200

    Thanks for the tip. Wish I had risked more at +600 when you posted this now.

    Joker went 22/17/10 yesterday, for his, what is it now, his 1000th triple/double.

    There is nothing Embid can do that Joker can't do, and Embid can't distribute like Joker can.

    Just saying.

    i find mvp odds impossible. like figuring out who's gonna win the oscars. it's not necessarily what's right.

    Having made my case for Joker, I will say this much for Philly guy.

    6:1 odds on a player who has a very realistic chance of winning MVP is a brilliant value bet a bet I probably would have made for insurance. You'd be a fool not to if you bet a Luka or Joker.

    Jokic can’t defend worth a lick. Huge liability there. East is stronger than the west so not that impressive being the best team in the west. They are neck and neck in PER so it’s very plausible embiid wins this given that nearly ever mvp winner is the PER leader as well.

    Also looks like Ilyasova, Robert Covington and Markelle Fultz. Literally none of those players are on the Sixers now lol

    Here's your current defensive ratings.
    Embid is not top ten.

    https://www.nba.com/stats/players/defense

    He didn't receive a single DOPY vote last season, and two seasons he barely made second team defense with seven votes.

    Jokic is clearly the better center, but that's just my opinion.

    If he can stay healthy then yes it's worth the shot at +600

    Do you guys realize Embid is -200 favorite for MVP now?


    If I had more than $20 on it at +600 it would make for a nice Hedge on Jokic +230.

    There's no need for you to hedge, you made a brilliant wager.

    And I think you missed the point of the link, Jokic is in the 40's by the way, which is what? Upper 25 percent?
    Make no mistake, Embid is the better defender, no doubt, but Jolic's defense is not piss poor.

    Anyone know what's the extra i for in Embiid's name? Was it a typo on his birth certificate?

    It's gotta be Jokic or Anteto'... I don't see a 3rd candidate. Only reason Embiid is in the conversation is the B-American-L-M angle.
