Earlier I reported on how the New York Knicks superstar rookie Jeremy Lin had odds slashed from 75-1 to 40-1 to be named NBA MVP in 2012. Sportsbook.com also had odds on Lin as the highest scorer.
Lin is now at 50/1 odds of being the top scorer on the season.
There is reason to believe this might be a good bet.
Reuters noted that, after being cut by two teams this season and languishing on New York's bench, Lin seized his opportunity with a stunning string of games that made him the league's most prolific scorer in 35 years through his first five starts - eclipsing former NBA MVPs Allen Iverson, Shaquille O'Neal and Michael Jordan.
Kobe Bryant was currently the 6/5 favorite to be top scorer in 2012.
