MVP and Scoring Title Winner (Picks)
Carmelo Anthony (+1400 to Win NBA Scoring Title)
When he wants to be, Anthony is the most unstoppable offensive force in basketball. With Jeremy Lin now in Houston, the ball will run through Anthony’s hands offensively. And you can guarantee one thing – he will shoot. A lot. If the Knicks can find a way to get their talented roster on the same page, Anthony could run away with the scoring title.
Rajon Rondo (+1900 to Win NBA MVP)
The Celtics go as Rondo goes, and he is now clearly the leader and focal point of the team. Rondo and former teammate Ray Allen never saw eye to eye – and while that likely didn’t impact on-court performance, Rondo will be a better player without Allen around to affect locker room chemistry. Rondo is a wizard with the ball in his hands, and if he leads the Celtics to another dominant regular season, expect him to be in contention for the league’s MVP award.
