PBT Podcast: NBA awards, title talk — and how to bet them

Kurt Helin, Corey Robinson and Drew Dinsick discuss the NBA MVP betting favorites and if it's feasible for Nikola Jokic to win his third consecutive MVP award.

The NBA season tipped off this week but it’s not too late to look ahead at the big awards — MVP, Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year, etc. — and not just make a prediction on who will win, but talk about how to bet them. And bet those NBA futures wisely.

When thinking MVP, it’s not just the player but is the team winning enough? With Rookie of the Year, it’s about volume. Can another guard get the Defensive Player of the Year award?

Drew Dinsick of NBC Sports Edge and the Bet the Edge show joins Corey Robinson of NBC Sports and myself to talk title and award predictions, what the archetype is for players who win that award, and who everyone is picking.

There’s a lot of Joel Embiid love for MVP, and Jordan Poole is a Sixth Man favorite.
