Ben Simmons NBA MVP Odds

Note: This snippet is from Matt Moore’s larger MVP piece. See his analysis for all major candidate here. Odds as of Thursday, October 17.

wrote up a little bit about Simmons when he hit that 3 in preseason and instantly became the top liability for MVP at two books. Let’s say Embiid has issues and can’t play more than half the season — a reasonable scenario.

The Sixers still have the talent to compete for 50 wins in a weak Eastern Conference in a weaker Atlantic division. Simmons isn’t going to be some jumper maniac, but he’s going to be so impactful on both ends that if Philly has the best defense with less than 75% of a season from Embiid, Simmons will command attention.

This is not as insane as it seems.
