LeBron James Favored for NBA All-Star MVP at BetCharlesJay

Hallandale Beach, Florida (PressExposure) February 25, 2012 -- LeBron James is the +300 favorite to capture the Most Valuable Player award in Sunday's NBA All-Star Game, as posted at fantasy sportsbook site BetCharlesJay.com ([http://www.betcharlesjay.com]).

Oddsmaker Charles Jay supplies odds for many major events in the sports and entertainment world, and far beyond, He says that having James, who has won the All-Star MVP twice, in 2006 and 2008, at the top of the list is not necessarily a surprise. "LeBron enjoys a showcase event, and for someone who is somewhat self-involved as a player, well, you know he'll figure out how to fill up the stat sheet," says Jay, who insists he is not being overly cynical. .

At the same time, he says plenty of consideration should be afforded to Dwight Howard, who has been the subject of trade rumors for the entire season. "Howard, as a starting center, is certainly positioned to impact the proceedings in a big way," according to Jay. "He's never won the award in this game, and of course, he is playing before a home crowd (at the Amway Center in Orlando). The crowd may count; after all, voting on the MVP is not the most exact science." Howard is priced at +450 (9-2) at BetCharlesJay.

Kobe Bryant is priced at +650, behind only James, Howard and Kevin Durant, and Jay sees this as one of his last chances at All-Star glory. "Well, he's getting up there in age, so I expect a big effort because he doesn't have a lot of All-Star games left," says Jay, "but he's won it four times already, including last year. The voters like him, but maybe they'll spread it around a little."

The usual suspects - generally those who are starting the game - are near the top of the list, but are there darkhorses out there? Jay cites the possibilities of Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves. "He has the ability to come into the game and pull down a lot of rebounds in a short period of time," he says. "His scoring is up to 25 points a game, and as you saw on Saturday night, he won the three-point shootout, so he is versatile. If he was on a better team, he'd be a league MVP candidate."
