Sportsbook sets odds on possible Michael Jordan comeback

Jason Logan
Michael Jordan celebrated his 50th birthday this past weekend and along with the celebration came rumors that the NBA’s greatest player could be planning yet another comeback.

One sportsbooks isn’t playing off the comeback chatter as just rumors, setting odds for the number of points Jordan would score in an official NBA game this year.

Online sportsbook has set 6-10 points as a +185 favorite, with 11-15 points at +200, 0-5 points at +220, 16-20 at +230, 21-30 points at +290, and 31 or more at +600. If No. 23 doesn’t suit up this season, all bets are considered “no action”.

Jordan, who retired for the third time after two seasons with the Washington Wizards in 2003, is the majority owner and chairman of the Charlotte Bobcats – a similar role held during his time in Washington.

He reportedly defeated Bobcats top draft selection Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – a player 30 years his junior - in a game of one-on-one recently, which sparked debates about how effective Jordan would be as a member of the Bobcats.

Jordan has also been reportedly trying to get down to his former playing weight and his personal trainer has told the media that he does have a “comeback program” in place if M.J. decides to give it another go.

Charlotte is currently 12-40 SU (19-32-1 ATS) and dead last in the entire NBA.

Maybe Jordan should come back. It wouldn’t make the Bobcats any worse. And you know he'd have action down on himself to score at least 20.

Wow!!! That would be so awesome to come back at that age but I personally think it's a gimmick for the boo and they'd probably use all of the cash from it knowing they just got a 6 month loan to invest into stocks without laying down any interest. Then again that's probably what they do the whole time with any long term bets anyway.

If it was only one game, I'd go 11-15...If he played more than one game, I think he would potentially score more points at least once...I'm sure he still has a jumper
