As Vegas sports books expand betting options, MVP voting is fair game. Will presidential elections be next? – Los Angeles Times

Kevin Durant had missed his first shot. So did Stephen Curry. Then 33-year-old Zaza Pachulia grabbed a rebound and scored for the Golden State Warriors.

The NBA Finals weren’t two minutes old, and if a bettor had put money on Pachulia to be named the series’ most valuable player, that early moment might have provided a faint flicker of hope given the center was listed at 2,000-to-1 at the Westgate SuperBook to get that honor.

But then world righted itself.

Durant and Curry took over Game 1 of the series — both heavy favorites at the sports books to earn MVP honors — as the Warriors rolled to victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
