Most Outstanding Player? There’s a bet for that

0 Comments

Prop bets tend to be a big part of the NCAA tournament experience for fans, and that goes for Final Four weekend as well.

Sportsbook.com released its updated odds on the Most Outstanding Player award with a predictable favorite. Kentucky’s Anthony Davis (+200) leads the way with $300 between he and teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

The other members of the top five are Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger (+600), Kansas’ Thomas Robinson (+800) and Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas (+900).

The most interesting aspect of this list has to be which player comes in as the sixth-best option: Kentucky guard Doron Lamb.

Lamb (+1200) has scored in double figures in seven straight games, but for him to have better odds than teammates Terrence Jones and Marquis Teague (both at +2000) is a bit surprising.

Kansas point guard Tyshawn Taylor and Ohio State guard William Buford ( both at +1500) could be attractive options for those looking for MOP options that will offer a nice payout should they come to fruition.
