The website SportsBettingDime.com already has odds for the NBA Rookie of the Year award next season, and two Kentucky Wildcats are among the seven players one can bet on. The odds went up this morning and De’Aaron Fox finds himself at a tempting 8-to-1 to win the rookie award, followed by Malik Monk at another tempting 10-to-1.
Odds to win 2017-18 NBA Rookie of the Year
Ben Simmons (76ers): 9/2
Lonzo Ball (UCLA): 6/1
Markelle Fultz (Washington): 13/2
Josh Jackson (Kansas): 8/1
Jayson Tatum (Duke): 8/1
De’Aaron Fox (Kentucky): 8/1
Malik Monk (Kentucky): 10/1
At this time I should remind you to gamble responsibly if you choose to do so. And by responsibly, I mean HAMMER Malik Monk at 10-to-1.
