Derrick Rose has 50/1 odds to win MVP in 2012-2013

David Banks-US PRESSWIRE

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is 50/1 to win the NBA MVP this year, according to Bovada.

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is currently listed at 50/1 to be the NBA's Most Valuable Player this season, according to Bovada. If Rose were healthy, he would undoubtedly be near the top of the list, but there's no guarantee that he will play this season.

Rose tore his ACL in Game 1 of the Bulls' first-round playoff series against the 76ers, and had surgery in May to repair his knee. The timetable for his return is 8-12 months, which would be anywhere between January and May in 2013. Many think the best case scenario is that Rose comes back shortly after the All-Star break in mid-February.

Rose won the MVP in 2011 after he averaged 25 points per game, 7.7 assists per game, and 4.1 rebounds per game over 81 games.

Not surprisingly, LeBron James is the favorite to win the award at 9/5, followed by Kevin Durant (15/4) and Kobe Bryant (12/1). Luol Deng is listed at 150/1.
