NBL 2018/19 MVP Odds

MVP Odds:

Randle 4
Ware 7
Cotton 7
Bogut 8
DJ 11
Goulding 11
Webster 12
Lisch 12
Wiley 15
McCarron 15
Kay 15
Gliddon 18
Boone 18
Moore 18
Jackson 18
White 18
Moore 18
Newbill 18

Sportsbet have Marshall Nelson at $23 - Hahahaha.

I think Randle is an obvious favourite. Whether the Kings succeed or are a mess, he's too capable not to get his numbers. I can see his supporting cost easily taking a backseat.

IMO Bogut at 8 is insanely short. McCarron too at 15.

Value might be Webster at $12, one of the 36ers. Conklin is $101 while Naar is $41 and Froling is $34. Is it bait? Or does whoever set these odds have NFI?

Randle favorite and rightly so .
Sobey not mentioned - a dark horse , perhaps worth a mention....

Randle and Cotton both miles ahead of the rest. Cotton at $7 is fantastic, he has a lot less offensive help than Randle.

Dark horses with value would be Webster and Sobey.

Ware is also too short pardon the pun at $7.
Cotton or Webster? Can't decide so just go with both.

I had a $20 free bet so I chucked it on Webster.

Cotton is value as noone else will be taking lots of votes from him and he is good for 5 gleeson votes per game

Webster is really good value. Tipping he will have a career year PPG wise in the NBL.

Yeah I agree that Cotton & Webster are both solid picks.

Cotton at $7 is great value, likely even less votes to be taken off of him by teammates this season. Randle has too much competition in Sydney as Ware likely does in Melbourne too.

Cotton likely to win it by a reasonable margin this season IMO.

That list is a mess, absolutely agree with the NFI comment

Also is DJ referring to Kennedy or Johnson? both OP and Senator11's?

The game is 36ers vs Perth so obviously Daniel Johnson. ;)

First year that I wouldn't even know which new import to bet on if I wanted to. Doesn't seem like a great crop this year. They're usually good value in the betting markets.

Jacob Wiley. He's looked pretty good in the preseason games and we need people to step up and replace not just the production of Childress but Creek too.

Fair odds for Randle, maybe a little high for Ware. Both guys could probably start for the Phoenix Suns right now, so tough to argue.

Well in that case I would rate it a high risk bet to have DJ at under 7.5r considering his averages for the past 3 seasons

Reply #707560 | Report this post

Yep DJ is a high risk play, but he can go missing on boards and Wiley looks like a big rebounder, plus he would have to compete with rebounding beasts Brandt, Jervis and Kay. Just a $10 bet to put a little more spice into the game. :)

Last year Cotton won with 117 votes. Next was Conger with 94. That's a huge margin in relative terms.

Randle polled 79 votes despite playing only 19 of 28 games. Ware had 77 votes.

There's always new players in the league- like Conger last year. But with Cotton, Randle and Ware all in at least their 3rd NBL season and being in familiar surroundings with familiar coaches, you can be very confident they will poll well again.

Interestingly, an American guard has won the MVP for something like 9 of the past 10 years.

Cotton would seem to be ridiculously good odds at $7 and showed why last night.
