Pick: James Harden (MVP) @4.500 7/10 -7.00
After a fantastic performance against GSW (3rd January) and a period of consecutive 40+ pts 10+ ast games in which resulted in wins, Harden moves up to the top as an MVP candidate. Games like that against a fully stacked Golden State while Rockets were without their main Point Guard Chris Paul will have a big factor. The next MVP candidate is the Greek Freak who is carrying the Bucks to the top, but his game isn't quite as great as Harden's who is playing his best basketball of his career at age 29. Giannis is only 24 and will have multiple chances to prove his MVP status over the next 5 years because no one will be on his level in the league other than Garden. The odds on Harden to win the MVP are falling quickly and it just 2.50 in some places. Bet365 is the only sleeper with 4.5 right now!!
