The NBA Draft is Thursday. Teams are hoping to find franchise players and bettors are looking to cash in on a few proposition wagers. Here are some of our favorite props (via 5Dimes) available for betting.
ACC vs. Pac-12 players drafted overall
- ACC -1.5 (+105)
- Pac-12 +1.5 (-135)
The ACC is the -1.5 favorite but with Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and Lauri Markkanen all projected to go in the top ten the Pac-12 is the odds on favorite (implied odds of 57.4% to cover).
ACC vs. Pac-12 players drafted in 1st Round
- ACC -3.5 (-145)
- Pac-12 +3.5 (+115)
The odds seem to favor the Pac-12 in total players drafted but in terms of 1st Round talent the ACC bests the west coast conference.
Oregon vs. UCLA players drafted overall
- Oregon +180
- UCLA -240
Ducks that could be drafted: Jordan Bell, Tyler Dorsey and Dillon Brooks. Bruins that could be drafted: Lonzo Ball, Ike Anigbogu, TJ Leaf and Jonah Bolden. Four is bigger than three, this seems pretty easy.
Kentucky vs. UCLA players drafted overall
- Kentucky -180
- UCLA +150
Just as De’Aaron Fox took it to Lonzo Ball during the NCAA tournament, Kentucky is favored to best UCLA once again on draft night.
Oregon players drafted overall
- Over 2.5 (-350)
- Under 2.5 (+260)
The odds suggest it’s a near lock (77.8% implied probability) that at least three Oregon players get drafted.
Kansas players drafted overall
- Over 1.5 (-350)
- Under 1.5 (+260)
There are three Jayhawks that could be drafted. Josh Jackson will definitely hear his named called but will Frank Mason or Wesley Iwundu? KU likely sees two players selected.
Gonzaga players drafted overall
- Over 1.5 (-120)
- Under 1.5 (-110)
The West Coast Conference bullies were stacked and road a loaded roster to the National Championship game. Freshmen Zach Collins could go in the top ten and then we need either junior Nigel Williams-Goss or senior Jordan Mathews to get picked.
Duke players drafted 1st Round
- Over 3.5 (+150)
- Under 3.5 (-180)
Jayson Tatum is a top three pick, Luke Kennard and Harry Giles could also be lottery picks. The question is will Frank Jackson go in the 1st Round? The odds suggest he won’t.
UCLA players drafted 1st Round
- Over 2.5 (-410)
- Under 2.5 (+315)
Lonzo Ball, Ike Anigbogu and TJ Leaf all have first round talent. The odds agree with an implied chance of 80.4% that at least three Bruins go in the first round.
Kentucky players drafted 1st Round
- Over 2.5 (-495)
- Under 2.5 (+360)
De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk are locks to go in the 1st Round. Freshmen center Edrice Adebayo is also projected as a first rounder. The odds heavily favor at least three Wildcats being taken early.
