2017 Rookie of the Year Odds
July 13, 2017
By VI News
The 2017 NBA Draft has concluded and bettors will have an opportunity to watch this year’s rookies compete in the regular season come October.
Even though the season is months away, bettors can wager on which youngster will earn Rookie of the Year accolades in the NBA for the 2017-18 season at BetOnline.ag.
The offshore betting shop has Lonzo Ball as the 11/4 betting favorite (Bet $100 to win $275) while Ben Simmons is listed right behind him at 13/4 odds (Bet $100 to win $325).
Simmons was also listed as the favorite last season but he missed the entire year with the Philadelphia 76ers due to a leg injury. For NBA purposes, he's still considered a rookie.
Ball, the Los Angeles Lakers first choice in the 2017 NBA Draft, will get a chance to put the 'Purple and Gold' back on the map.
Last year's winner was Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks and oddsmakers didn't have the guard listed on the opening odds.
The latest odds are listed below at BetOnline.ag.
