The new NBA regular season is underway and offshore sportsbooks have had a number of different player props up. Let’s look at 2017-18 NBA Regular Season MVP and Rookie of the Year odds.

NBA MVP & Rookie of the Year Odds

The 2017-18 NBA Regular Season tipped off with two games on Tuesday night, so what better time to look at some Futures markets, especially with the Championship market as seemingly boring as a Futures market can be with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and the defending champion Golden State Warriors (-180 to win NBA Championship, 5Dimes) becoming the priciest Futures Book favorite in a professional sports history and one of few to ever go off as under-Even Favorites to win their league’s championship.

“They’re (going to be) the highest favorite we’ve ever had going into a season, any sport,” Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook oddsmaker Jeff Sherman said of the Dubs’ ridiculous Futures odds, which are way pricier than any ATS (-110 usually) odds on the current betting board in the NCAA Week 8 (ATS -110 usually) or NFL Week 7 (ATS -110) games.

And this is one reason why finding other ways to bet the NBA will probably be more popular this season in sportsbooks, with the likely series price of another Warriors-Cavaliers NBA Finals to be even cheaper than the numbers we’re currently looking at. And 5Dimes also thinks this season may just be be a long waiting game for the two teams we all expect to see again in the NBA Finals, pricing another Warriors-Cavaliers matchup at a low +135 with the next closet odds choice the Warriors-Celtics at +535. A potential Spurs-Cavaliers Finals is priced at +1,850.
