NBA Draft Gambling Odds: Maxey’s Over/Under set at 16.5

Over at MyBookie.com (promo code FREEMONEY if you sign up), Anthony Edwards is the betting favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Edwards is -300 (1/3) to go first in tonight’s draft, a swift change from earlier today when the morning lines listed LaMelo Ball as the favorite in that spot.

A bet on Kentucky’s Tyrese Maxey pays 200/1:

Other fun ways to bet the draft include but are not limited to:

Tyrese Maxey draft position
Over 16.5 (-110) / Under 16.5 (-130)

Freshmen drafted in the top 10
Over 4.5 (-180) / Under 4.5 (+140)

SEC players drafted in the first round
Over 5.5 (-120) / Under 5.5 (-120)

Will the No. 1 overall pick cry?
No (+350) / Yes (-600)

Who will the No. 1 pick hug first?
Dad (+110) / Mom (+115) / Sibling (+175) / Girlfriend (+600) / Pet (+800) Friend (+1000)

Of those bets I like mom getting the first hug at +115 and Maxey under 16.5 for a little less return on the dollar.

We’re only hours away…
