Stephen Curry 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.
I made the case for Curry last month; you can read more here. However, preseason has cooled me a little bit. Curry popped off for 40 vs. the Wolves the other night in just 25 minutes.
That should be a sign of how great his season could be. However, the Wolves were still in that game, albeit a preseason game, until late even with Curry going off. The reality is that the preseason indicates the defense and bench is in even more trouble than we thought.
I’m still putting Curry in this favorites section, based on his potential for production and carrying the team to wins, but I’ve cooled a bit based on the fact the Warriors may not win enough games to put him in serious contention.
