Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant’s fractured right foot has affected the betting odds on his chances to repeat as NBA Most Valuable Player.

Before Durant’s injury, he was a close second behind LeBron James in the odds to win the MVP, at about 3-to-1.

Now that it appears he’ll miss about a month or maybe more to start the season, his odds are now at about 4-to-1, according to Bovada.

James is now the odds-on clear favorite to win MVP, with Durant still second.

Oklahoma City native and former Sooner Blake Griffin is the third choice, with Thunder guard Russell Westbrook fifth.
