Some sportsbooks will offer proposition wagering on special awards, final cumulative statistics or which college player might be taken first in the NBA Draft.
Books will offer future odds on which player will be named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player.
Frequently, the list will be short and may include just a handful to a dozen players, with maybe just two or three that have a realistic shot at being named the league’s top player.
The decision is based on the league’s public announcement of the award.
Some books may also offer non-game related propositions, such as scoring champion, or which college player will be taken first in the league’s annual player section (NBA Draft).
Several locales do not have the ability to offer some types of wagers like these due to the regulations of the betting commission in some particular jurisdictions.
Often, books, such as those in Las Vegas, can petition to their local commission for special permission to offer a prop on an upcoming popular event, as long as the commission is given enough time to review the special offering.
