Thompson-Kardashian Odds Favor Reunion

Thompson-Kardashian Odds Favor Reunion - Bovada Sportsbook

It has been rough week for Tristan Thompson. The Cleveland Cavaliers big man is reportedly in damage control mode with girlfriend Khloe Kardashian after video surfaced last week of him getting up close and personal with a pair of unidentified ladies at a hookah bar in Washington D.C. last October.

Things quickly went from bad to worse for Thompson with subsequent reports that he also spent some one-on-one time with Instagram model Lani Blair at a New York City hotel last weekend while Khloe burdened through the final days of her pregnancy with Tristan’s child.

Besieged by waves of condemnation, Thompson is now pegged as a +170 bet on the Tristan Thompson – Khloe Kardashian odds to no longer be dating Kardashian on the opening night of the 2018/19 NBA season.

Scandals are nothing new to Thompson or Kardashian. The fourth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft made headlines when he went public with his relationship with Khloe while his previous girlfriend, Jordan Craig, was still pregnant with his first child. Whispers of the existence of a sex tape featuring Thompson and Craig followed but were never substantiated, and Craig later gave birth to Thompson’s son, Prince Oliver, in December 2016.

With Thompson now a regular topic of conversation on tabloid television shows and magazine gossip columns, it has become apparent that he may be a better player off the court than on.

The 27-year-old Toronto native has seen his production and minutes dip with the Cavaliers, averaging just 20.2 minutes and 5.8 points per game during the recently ended NBA regular season.

Thompson endured a particularly rough stretch run, tallying more than four points on just two occasions in his final 11 appearances, and was lustily booed by the hometown fans in his first appearance on home court following the breaking news of his extracurricular activities, a 110-98 loss to the New York Knicks as 8.5-point favorites on April 11.

The return to action of teammate Kevin Love also limited Thompson to just two minutes of playing time in Cleveland’s 98-80 loss to Indiana in Game 1 of their first-round playoff matchup, but that could change when the Cavaliers host the Pacers on Wednesday in Game 2 as 8-point chalk.

While Khloe has received an outpouring of support from family, celebrity friends, and her 26.2 million Twitter followers, this is not the first time she has found herself at the center of a sex scandal involving an NBA player.

Prior to her relationship with Thompson, Khloe was married to former NBA star Lamar Odom, whom she was set to divorce before he was discovered unresponsive in a Nevada brothel following a drug overdose that left him in a coma for four days.

Kardashian reportedly rushed to Odom’s bedside and postponed their divorce while playing a central role in the two-time NBA champion’s recovery and drug treatment. That should be welcome news to Thompson, who is taking steps to repair the damage to his relationship with Khloe.

According to media reports, Thompson was permitted by Khloe to be in attendance for the birth of his daughter on April 12, buoying -250 odds that the celebrities will still be an item come Game 1 of the 2018/19 NBA campaign.
