Harden a 14-1 pick to be All-Star MVP in Houston

HOUSTON — Who will be the MVP of the 2013 All-Star Game?

The oddsmakers are seriously down on Tim Duncan, who may not even play, but they are offering a couple of value bets, too.

If I was a gambler (which I am not, unless we are talking poker), I’d take a flyer on James Harden of the Houston Rockets, who will be playing on his home court and will be the only player with a majority of the crowd behind him.

Harden is a 14-1 pick. LeBron James is a nice pick, too, at 7-1 — especially with what he has been doing lately.
