Real talk of Jrue coming off bench. If he does that, he's instantly top five for 6MOY and maybe #1. Celtics lack depth so he'll play heavy minutes, score plenty, and close games, and every person on the planet loves him. Only up at a couple books as of 10/14. This drops to +1000 if he's confirmed off bench. Is there a 15% chance he does? Worth finding out.

Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Bet the Texans to go from worst to first in the division, and even doubled down with a Will Anderson DROY cherry on top. Joe Flacco CPOY +25000 and Nuggets over Heat +1600 exact outcome were fun, too!
Most Heartbreaking Bet
MVP bets. Tom Brady +1400 in 2021, odds-on favorite in December, but shutout vs. Saints on SNF. Nikola Jokic +900 in 2023, rightful leader all the way, but the moron voters get bored and go with Embiid last minute. Brock Purdy +5000 in 2024, odds-on favorite on Christmas, but the voters are too proud to vote for him or Dak. You're killin' me, Smalls!
