Are Alex Oriakhi, Shabazz Napier Worth a Gamble?

Proving you can bet on anything, Jimmy Shapiro of Props PR sends along the betting odds set by Bovada (www.Bovada.lv) on who'll win national player of the year honors this season, as well as the over/unders on points per game of certain players.

According to Bovada, Alex Oriakhi is a 50-to-1 bet to win AP Player of the Year. Shabazz Napier's over/under on points per game this season is 13.5. Oriakhi's is 10.5, and his rebounding average is 8.5.

Here are some of the odds and over/unders posted by Bovada for some notable national players and Big East players. As an AP voter who'll vote for Player of the Year, I probably shouldn't even acknowledge this. But ultimately, I found it blogworthy, if nothing more.
