Australian online bookmaker CrownBet has declared the 2015/16 NBA Regular Season MVP a foregone conclusion and has paid out on Steph Curry as the winner, despite there still being 67 games left in the season.
The payout applies to all single bets placed on Stephen Curry to win the 2015/16 Regular Season NBA MVP prior to 11:59pm on November 24, 2015.
“We believe Curry is playing like he’s from another planet at the moment, and given the astronomical numbers he is putting up the decision is warranted” CrownBet’s Rob Cumbrae-Stewart said.
Curry is averaging 32.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game. On top of that the Warriors have an impeccable 15-0 record, equal to the NBA’s best ever start to a season.
“Punters can reinvest on Curry if they wish, or can take their money. It’s completely up to them, the cash is in their accounts.”
CrownBet’s 2015/16 NBA Regular Season MVP market remains open, which sees Curry a clear $1.75 favourite from Russell Westbrook at $5.50 and LeBron James at $6.50 – further details below.
