The newest odds for league MVP don't have Curry as the favorite

How can it not be Steph?

Steph Curry has won the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award back-to-back now and would naturally make sense as the top bet to win it a third time. However, that's not the case according to Bovada. They have triple-double machine and newly re-signed Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook as the man to beat.

Kawhi Leonard and James Harden are also listed as a 16-1 shot with Paul George following at 22-1 odds and Blake Griffin at 28-1 odds. You can find the complete list here. Should LeBron James win the award this season it would put him on par with Bill Russell and Michael Jordan for second-most MVPs in a year only behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
