The folks over at Bovada continue to send over their most recent odds.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant remains a heavy favorite to win the scoring title. Durant is averaging a league-high 28.2 points per game, almost two full points over the next highest average, through 16 games this season.

Durant led the league in scoring for three straight years before he was dethroned by New York Knicks’ forward Carmelo Anthony last season. Anthony has the second-best odds to lead the league in points per game. Anthony is currently second in the league, averaging 26.3 points per game.

Miami Heat forward LeBron James is third in the league in scoring and has the third-best odds. The MVP favorite is putting up 26.0 points per game.

Indiana Pacers’ forward Paul George has the fourth-best odds and is fourth in the league in scoring, averaging 24.9 points per game.

Golden State Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry is tied for ninth in the league with Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo with 22.6 points per game. He does, however, have the fifth-best odds to lead the league.
