2013-2014 NBA odds: Dwight Howard a big favorite to win the rebounding title


Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard has been known as the game’s best rebounder for some time. Howard again led the league in rebounding during the 2012-20-13 season, averaging 12.4 boards per game for the Los Angeles Lakers. Howard, who was the prize of free agency this summer, signed with the Rockets. Bovada.lv has made Howard a big favorite to win the rebounding title again this season, giving him 1/1 odds.

Minnesota Timberwolves big man Kevin Love was injured for a big chunk of last season, but was second in the league in rebounding in the 2011-12 season, averaging 13.3 per game. He has the second-best odds at 3/2.

Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic, who was acquired from the Philadelphia 76ers when the Magic sent Howard to Los Angeles, is third with 19/2 odds. Vucevic finished second in the league last year, averaging 11.9 rebounds per game.

Anderson Varejao (16/1) of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Zach Randolph (20/1) of the Memphis Grizzlies complete the top five.
