The Odds a Kentucky Wildcat Wins Rookie of the Year

Less than 12 hours after the conclusion of the 2018 NBA Draft, Bovada has updated odds for the 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year award.  You can get some action on Kentucky’s two lottery picks.

Kevin Knox is tied with Michael Porter Jr., the player Knicks’ fans clamored for at the Barclays Center, as the seventh choice with 15-1 odds.  Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is much farther down the list with 40-1 odds.  A look at

  • DeAndre Ayton, 13/5
  • Luke Doncic, 3/1
  • Marvin Bagley, 9/2
  • Trae Young, 7/1
  • Jaren Jackson Jr., 9/1
  • Mo Bamba, 11/1
  • Kevin Knox, 15/1
  • Michael Porter Jr., 15/1
  • Mikel Bridges, 22/1
  • Collin Sexton, 22/1
  • Miles Bridges, 28/1
  • Wendell Carter Jr., 28/1
  • Donte DiVincenzo, 40/1
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, 40/1
  • Zaire Smith, 45/1
  • Lonnie Walker, 50/1
  • Robert Williams, 50/1

If I were a gambling man, Lonnie Walker at 50-1 is awfully enticing.  As always, wager responsibly friends.
