75th NBA Draft Odds.
Barclays Center – July 29, 2021
The 2021 NBA Draft will be here before you know it, scheduled to take place on July 29, 2021. Once the NBA Finals wrap up in mid to late June, teams will start planning to fill gaps in their rosters and picking up top talent. The NBA Draft is a great opportunity to bet on the order of the draft, and which players might be joining a team in 2021.
The 75th NBA Draft will take place at the Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets. There will be a total of 60 players selected in two rounds. The NBA Draft combine, which showcases the potential draftee’s skills will take place from June 21st to 27th, 2021. During that time, on June 22nd, the NBA Draft lottery will occur, determining the 2021 NBA Draft selection order.
For players to be eligible for the 2021 NBA Draft, all players must be over the age of 19, declare for the NBA Draft, and participate in the Draft Combine. This year specifically, the 2020-2021 season will not count toward player’s college eligibility due to COVID-19 to help college seniors, so players that originally would have been entering the draft have another year of college basketball eligibility.
Once we determine the draft order, we can start making predictions and mock drafts – determining which players we believe will be drafted by which team. The NBA Draft Lottery Odds determines the first four picks in the draft. This is determined using an actual lottery ping-pong ball style of machine with 14 balls. There are 1,000 four-digit number combinations that could come up, and the three lowest placed teams will receive 140 combinations, the fourth worst will receive 125, and so on. The remainder of the teams after the top four are decided, will be ranked in a reverse of the previous season’s standings.
Betting on the NBA Draft can be really entertaining and spice up an event that isn’t known to be overwhelmingly exciting. It’s a great plan to keep an eye out for mock drafts, they can be extremely accurate and insightful. There is no shortage of sports analysts and NBA beat writers out there writing expert analysis on the NBA Draft.
Another strategy we recommend is keeping in mind is to recall where teams may have roster gaps, or which types of players would be a good fit overall.
Let’s look at the top players to keep an eye on, and the most likely to be selected in the first round:
Cade Cunningham is heavily favored to be the top draft pick in this year’s NBA Draft. The 6-foot-8 point guard has the size, defensive skills and intensity to be worth the number one pick.
Evan Mobley is projected to be selected second at the 2021 NBA Draft, standing at seven-feet tall, with exceptional coordination for a center his size. He is one of the most well-rounded players at this draft and we expect to hear his name called early on.
Jalen Suggs stands at six-foot-four, is a well-rounded, physical defender as well as a great decision maker on the court. He’s projected to go third, as a franchise point guard for whoever is lucky enough to land him on their team.
Jalen Green is fast, explosive and a strong finisher around the net. He is a very creative shooter, and we predict whichever team selects him will groom him into an exceptional ball player.
Jonathan Kuminga is the highest ranked international player originally from Congo. The six-foot-eight forward’s stature is appealing to any team, as is his explosiveness and defensive skills. He is coming from the NBA G League Ignite team, forgoing his college eligibility and declaring for the draft.
Keon Johnson is a top prospect coming out of Tennessee with an explosive first step and acceleration. He is aggressive as a defender and offensive player, who would be an asset for any team to pick up and shape into an absolute threat.
Betting on the 2021 NBA Draft can make for an exciting mid-summer betting extravaganza, allowing us to bet on some unique props and specials that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to bet on during any regular sports season. As soon as the lottery completes, we should see NBA Draft betting lines populating so you receive the most accurate and fair NBA Draft odds possible.
The NBA Draft is the hot topic as soon as the NBA Finals are over, allowing teams to select some of the top talent from the NCAA, as well as from around the world. The NBA Draft closes the season in a way, as then we move into the summer break where there will be no NBA basketball to bet on all summer.
Betting on the NBA Draft is easy, you don’t have to put a lot of effort into it – drafts can be pretty predictable in terms of which players will be drafted in the first round, but sometimes you can be surprised with choices an NBA franchise makes in terms of who they select.
You will have a few different NBA Draft betting options available to you, so let’s go over the most popular and common betting choices, and learn how to bet on the NBA Draft.
Many of the NBA Draft betting options are available as a standard moneyline wager.
Moneyline wagers essentially have two outcomes that could occur, in the case of the NBA Draft, you will likely see more yes or no questions to choose from. You will be choosing which outcome you believe will happen.
You might see options that include a player and when he will be drafted, or will he be drafted first overall, in the first round, in the second round, etc. There are only 60 picks at the 2021 NBA Draft, so it’s not nearly as intensive as the NFL Draft, but very similar.
Your only job when selecting an NBA Draft moneyline is to pick the correct outcome. There is no room for error, if you are wrong, you lose your wager.
If you look at the following 2021 NBA Draft odds to be selected first:
What these odds mean, is that the oddsmaker is pitting two players against each other to be selected first. This happens a lot in golf, where two players who aren’t directly competing against each other are paired up and you will pick which player will be selected first.
Cade Cunningham is a pretty heavy favorite to be selected as the first pick overall at the 2021 NBA Draft. That is known information, and that reflects on this wager as you will be asked which player you think will be picked first. If Cade Cunningham is projected to go first overall, you would likely be inclined to want to bet on him. Though his negative odds pose a problem, as you would have to wager $500 to win $100.
If you have a feeling that Kuminga could be drafted before Cunningham, you could place a wager on him – his positive odds represent that he’s an underdog of course. If you think the first team on the clock could shock us all and pick Kuminga over Cunningham, you could wager $100 and win $850, plus have your initial stake returned to you.
Totals are popular for NBA Draft betting and are also extremely easy to understand. These won’t be standard over/unders as we aren’t adding any total numbers together. The NBA Draft odds for totals betting involves setting a line of which draft selection spot a player might be drafted, then determining if you believe that player will be drafted above or below that draft spot.
Let’s say that Scottie Barnes is projected to be drafted seventh in the 2021 NBA Draft and his odds look like this:
The odds will have a half point to prevent a push if Scottie Barnes is actually drafted seventh.
It’s pretty simple, you just need to determine if you think Barnes will be drafted sooner or later than 7th. The odds will be available for all prospective players, especially those in the first round.
