The 2014-2015 Associated Press Player of the Year Award odds have been released via Bovada, and Villanova Wildcats forward JayVaughn Pinkston is the lone representative from the Big East Conference.
Pinkston joins several of his peers at 75/1 odds to take home the trophy this coming season. These include Chasson Randle (Stanford), Rodney Purvis (UConn), Branden Dawson (Michigan State), Kevin Pangos (Gonzaga), Ronade Hollis-Jefferson (Arizona), Aaron Harrison (Kentucky) as well as Ryan Boatright (UConn) and many more.
Duke forward Jahlil Okafor is the odds on favorite to win the award this coming year, posting 5/1 odds currently. Arizona's Stanley Johnson narrowly trails him at 6/1 odds, and Montrezl Harrell of Louisville is third at 7/1.
Last season, Creighton's Doug McDermott was awarded with the AP Player of the Year award after an outstanding senior season.
