NBA Sixth Man of the Year


While some awards markets get a lot of attention, the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award doesn’t always fall into that category. However, that doesn’t mean that people don’t bet on the player who will be awarded the Sixth Man of the Year award! The Sixth Man of the Year award is given to the top performing player off the bench.

This decision isn’t made on a one-off, exceptional performance, it’s a player who consistently is subbed in and gets relatively high amounts of floor time for a bench player. This player is considered the team’s sixth man – as he is on the floor almost as much as starters. This player will be easy to spot, as the starters all have that designation, but if you see a player who has plenty of playing minutes, points, and is frequently getting called in during games, you might have a contender for this award on your hands.

The Sixth Man of the Year award was introduced in the 1982-83 season, and follows the same principles as the other awards markets. The player is chosen by a panel of journalists and sports media personalities, who all vote on their top three players they feel are deserving of the award. Each voter will rank their players from one to three, and for each first place vote they receive five points, each second place vote earns three points and the third place votes earn one point.

The Sixth Man of the Year award has been given to 30 different players, and not many of those players have won on multiple occasions. There have only been two players who have three awards a piece: Jamal Crawford and Lou Williams. The 2020-21 recipient was Jordan Clarkson of the Jazz.


When it comes to betting on the Sixth Man of the Year award, it may not be an overly popular betting market, but we certainly offer odds on it and encourage you to take advantage of the option if you feel you know who will win. After all, it is a futures wager, which is one of the most simple wagers you can place, albeit risky.

A futures wager is a wager that you place on an outcome that will occur in the future – so in this case, a wager on who the Sixth Man of the Year award recipient will be, but you will want to place this wager far in advance as the odds will start to lean in favor of the player who is most likely to win the later we get in the season.

You will see a list of bench players who continue to get playing time, with numbers next to their names. These are their odds, and they will reflect how likely that player is to win the award. Usually there are favored players, and their odds will be displayed as a low number in the negative if they are a big favorite, or the low 100’s. An underdog player who is less likely to win, will be displayed in a positive number, likely in the thousands if they are a large underdog.

All you have to do to place your NBA Sixth Man of the Year wager is to choose the player you think will win. If your player ends up being a bust or you lose your confidence in that player, you can always cash out your wager for a reduced return. Some money back is better than nothing!

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
