I'd take a punt on Rubio at $21, if he plays he's in with a great chance.

I actually thought Griffin is a no brainer for ROY... I also expect LAC to make the playoffs this year too., so that will boost his chances.

Only an injury will stop him. It just depends how much u wanna put on him. Lazy pineapple?

I like Curry at $7.50
He is playing with Golden State, so he will get minutes and a free license to jack it up.
I don't know about Evans; Don't think he has the jump shot to be a scorer in the league, unless the opposition can't scout properly.

I'm surprised Boston is only third favourite for the title! Never actually placed a bet before, and $5 doesn't seem like a great return, but I might be tempted to put some money on them this year. Just picked up Marquis Daniels to go with Sheed according to several reports. So they covered their two big weaknesses and should be able to resign Baby and pick up a guy like Watson at PG for depth.

Griffin is probably going to win ROY. He's started solidly at Summer League. No reason to think he will fall short of expectations. If not him, I'd back Harden for ROY. He will almost certainly start for the Thunder and I think he looks ready to put up good numbers straight away.

Harden is no chance for ROY IMO. He may start but he wont get any shots when evrything is run around Durant (and Westbrook and Green). He will be the fourth option in a lottery team - tough to get any awrds fron there.

I see San Antonio at $11 as being good odds.

If Duncan, Manu and Parker are all healthy, plus Jefferson as another option, then they could prove hard to beat in 7 games.
