Vegas sportsbooks now taking bets on the Finals MVP and NBA Draft
Good news for the degenerates out there. You want some props to bet on these next few weeks? If you’re in Vegas, you can throw down that extra cash on the Finals MVP and the NBA draft now. Details come from the LV Review Journal: Add the NBA Finals MVP Award and the NBA draft to the growing list of off-field events bettors can wager on at Nevada sports books. The Nevada Gaming Control Board granted approval Wednesday to offer prop bets on the NBA draft, which will be June 22, and on the winner of the NBA Finals MVP. William Hill, which operates 109 sports books in Nevada, petitioned the board for approval to take wagers on both events and quickly became the first book to offer betting on the Finals MVP. Warriors forward Kevin Durant opened as the 7-5 favorite, Golden State guard Steph Curry was the 8-5 second choice and Cavaliers forward LeBron James, a three-time Finals MVP, was the 2-1 third choice. They were followed by Draymond Green (17-2), Kyrie Irving (10-1), Kevin Love (15-1) and Klay Thompson (25-1).
