2017 WNBA MVP Odds

Last season Nneka Ogwumike led the Los Angeles Sparks to a 26-8 record and their third championship in franchise history. The first overall pick in the 2012 Draft, Ogwumike averaged a career-high 19.7 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 3.1 assists while leading the league in field goal percentage (66.5%). Those impressive statistics made Oguimike a logical MVP selection and provided a solid payout for anybody who took her at 35/1 before the season.
