Kyrie Irving MVP Odds Are a Great Bet This Season
After pulling off the biggest coup of the NBA off-season by landing not only “The Slim Reaper” Kevin Durant, but also the electric Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn is once again a basketball town. The Nets are poised to become an immediate contender in an overhauled NBA landscape. But, the Durantula will be on the shelf until at least March 2020. In his absence, the team will be centred on Kyrie, creating an opportunity for him to attack the MVP award with gusto.
The former Duke Blue Devil point guard experienced a tumultuous final season in Boston. Uncle Drew struggled through injuries issues, while watching the team chemistry fall out in Beantown. Coach Brad Stevens ultimately failed in his quest to gel his squad together, after point-god Kyrie and swingman Gordon Hayward had lost much of the previous season to injury.
Long regarded as one of the greatest finishers in the game, and perhaps of all-time, Irving has split fan opinion in recent years. On the one hand, he remains one of the most electric and visually pleasing players in league history. On the other, he seemed disgruntled last year in Boston, and it has been reported “Mr. 4th Quarter” was the source of the teams’ chemistry issues. Having chosen his cast mates in the feature film for Brooklyn, Kyrie should thrive in a new area.
Kyrie’s 2020 MVP Odds for the Season
The Barclays Center will be graced by the presence on Irving, DeAndre Jordan, and eventually Kevin Durant this upcoming season. Surrounded by shooters in Joe Harris and Wilson Chandler, along with young talent in Jarrett Allen, Taurean Prince, and the outstanding Caris Levert, Uncle Drew will have the greatest supporting cast he’s seen in the NBA. In 2020, Kyrie should be given free reign by head coach Josh Tynes. Allowing the offense and entire team to be centred around Irving will bring out the best in the ninth-year pro. The Nets Kyrie Irving could be the best version of himself we’ve seen, a scary thought for the rest of the NBA.
Listed at a value price of +5000 in 2020 NBA MVP odds should have you salivating on betting tickets. At that number, Kyrie provides outstanding betting value. The Nets have no choice but to let Kyrie loose on their competition in the upcoming season. Unleashing Kyrie is their only hope at making the playoffs while Kevin Durant heals. Should he return at anywhere close to his previous form, the Nets could become a wrecking force in the NBA playoffs. Betting them at +2300 to win the NBA title is definitely worth a look.
The odds are, without a shadow of a doubt, in Kyrie Irving’s favor to return to form with the Brooklyn Nets. When Kevin Durant returns, the Nets will boast what has to be seen as one of the scariest tandems in the history of the Association. Nets fans can finally look to the future and smile at the fact their team will contend for championships for years to come. Bet on Kyrie, and you’ll also be smiling at your ticket after the 2020 NBA season.
