Embiid Best Bet For All-Star Game MVP

Not only is Joel Embiid an NBA MVP candidate, but he’s also the best bet to win NBA All-Star Game MVP this weekend.

The recipe for an all-star game MVP is pretty clear: you have to put up points, be an already established NBA superstar and be on the winning team. Embiid clearly ticks some of those boxes, and the biggest challenge for him may be carrying Team Durant to a win.

With Nikola Jokic being the only true center on Team LeBron, there should be plenty of opportunities for Embiid to work in the paint and put up easy buckets. So, if he can go off and dominate the smaller opposition, he could end LeBron’s run of all-star game victories and snatch himself an MVP.

MVP Value Pick: DeMar DeRozan +1800

If Team LeBron can come away with a win, I think DeRozan offers great value in the MVP odds. The Chicago wing has been incredible this season, averaging 28 points and over five rebounds and assists per contest, with some of the best shooting proficiency of his career.

While he’s on a team of stars, DeRozan has something in common with some of the recent NBA All-Star Game MVPs. The Bulls forward is a high-volume shooter who can hit shots from all spots on the floor. While Durant and James can seem like they’re in a league of their own, DeRozan can certainly match their production in a showcase game like this and win himself an MVP.
