Who is favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year?

Evan Mobley remains the runaway odds-on favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year for the 2021-22 season. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers big man is currently averaging 14.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in his debut season after being drafted at No. 3. 

Mobley has helped the Cavs remain in the playoff race, with the Cleveland franchise currently sitting in seventh with a 42-33 record. 

He is currently -450 in the NBA betting to win Rookie of the Year.

Although he is way ahead of his rivals in the betting, Mobley recently suffered an ankle injury which could put him out for a few games, and that could potentially open the door to a late challenge from a couple of contenders.

Scottie Barnes, selected at No. 4 by the Toronto Raptors, is second in the market at +250 amid a season in which he has averaged 15.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. 

Also in the running is first overall pick Cade Cunningham, who is having a great March for the Detroit Pistons. Over the last month, Cunningham has been averaging 21.6 points per game along with 6.6 rebounds and 7.2 assists. He is currently priced at +700, and could make a late charge for the award.

It looks likely that Mobley will be named Rookie of the Year, but his current injury status and Barnes' recent play means the Toronto forward could be worth a punt at this price.

Considering how well Cunningham has been playing of late, he could become a legit contender for Rookie of the Year in the final few weeks of the season.  

NBA Rookie of the Year trends

There a few things to consider when placing a bet on NBA Rookie of the Year, and trends from past winners can help inform your wager.

Over the past 30 years, the Rookie of the Year was drafted in the first round in all but one season.

In that time frame, the award has been won by the first overall pick on 14 occasions.

In recent years, the winner has generally been a primary ball-handler. Of the last 10 winners, six have been guards, and three have been ball-playing forwards.

Only one center – Karl-Anthony Towns – has won the award since 2005-06.

Who is favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year?

Evan Mobley is a massive odds-on favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year for the 2021-22 season. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers center is currently averaging 14.9 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game after being selected third overall in the 2021 NBA Draft. 

Mobley's consistency has helped the Cavs to a 35-23 record at the All-Star break, good enough for third in the Eastern Conference. 

He is currently odds-on at -500 in the NBA betting to win Rookie of the Year. 

NBA Rookie of the Year odds

Barring injury, Mobley should go on to be named Rookie of the Year, but there are a few other first-year players who could potentially close the gap on him with a huge finish to the season. 

No. 1 overall pick, Cade Cunningham, continues to prove his worth for the rebuilding Detroit Pistons, and is averaging 15.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. 

Scottie Barnes, picked fourth by the Toronto Raptors, is another rookie impressing this season. He averages 14.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game at this point in the year. 

Both players are currently priced up at +750 to overhaul Mobley to win Rookie of the Year.

Franz Wagner +2100

Ayo Dosunmu +6000

Chris Duarte +10000

Jalen Green +15000

NBA Rookie of the Year best bets

Evan Mobley -500

At this point in the season, Mobley's odds are pretty prohibitive, but unless you're taking a long shot, there's little point in backing anyone else. He is so far clear of the field, and should go on to win the award if he stays healthy.

Josh Giddey +1100

If anyone could be considered a sleeper at this point, it's Giddey. The Australian point guard, drafted sixth overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder, became the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double in December, and entered the All-Star break with three in three games. That kind of form is clearly not sustainable, but Giddey is turning heads with his form and could be worth a small wager.

[January 26]

Who is favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year?

Evan Mobley is running away from the pack in the race to win NBA Rookie of the Year for the 2021-22 season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers big man, drafted third overall, is averaging 15.0 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in his first NBA campaign.

Mobley has helped the resurgent Cavs to fifth place in the East as we head towards February, with a 29-19 record. 

He is currently odds-on at -225 in the NBA betting to win Rookie of the Year. 

NBA Rookie of the Year odds

Although Mobley looks nailed-on to win Rookie of the Year already, there are a couple of others who could sneak into the conversation with a big second half of the season.

Scottie Barnes of the Toronto Raptors is currently second in the betting at +450. He is averaging 14.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game after being drafted fourth overall by the Raptors, who are in the playoff picture in the East.

No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham is the other player in with a shout, although at +750 he will have to play lights out for the rest of the season to have any chance of overhauling Mobley.

Cunningham is averaging 16.2 points per game as things stand, but is coming off a career-high 34-point performance against Denver that demonstrated his huge potential.

Evan Mobley -225

Josh Giddey +2000

Jalen Green +6000

Chris Duarte +6000

Ayo Dosunmu +8000

Evan Mobley -225

Backing the odds-on favorite at this price is hardly exciting, but if you are going to place a bet on Rookie of the Year, the smart money is with Mobley. He is so far ahead of everyone else in the betting, and his consistency should see him maintain that lead, barring injury. 

Cade Cunningham +750

If you’re looking for a punt at a longer price, Cunningham could be one to consider. He is starting to rack up big performances and, if he keeps improving and finds some consistency, he could be the one to close that gap on Mobley.

Franz Wagner +1500

Wagner currently sits fourth in the betting after starting the season as a +3000 outsider, and continues to play a big role for the rebuilding Orlando Magic. 

Ayo Dosunmu +8000

Dosunmu has made some massive movements in the betting in recent weeks after a significant increase in his minutes for the Chicago Bulls, who are impressing as a team. He remains a massive long shot, but could move further up the betting if he retains his increased role.

[December 30]

Who is favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year?

The current favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year for the 2021-22 season is Cleveland Cavaliers center Evan Mobley.

After being drafted third overall, Mobley is putting together a stellar first season in the league, averaging 14.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.

He is currently priced at +115 in the NBA betting to win the award, having helped the Cavs to an impressive 20-14 record – good enough for fifth in the East – as we head into 2022.  

NBA Rookie of the Year odds

Mobley’s closest current rival for Rookie of the Year is first overall pick Cade Cunningham of the Detroit Pistons (+300).

The Pistons are struggling at the bottom of the Eastern Conference but Cunningham has been impressive in recent weeks, averaging 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game.  

Also priced at +300 to win the award is fourth overall pick Scottie Barnes of the Toronto Raptors.

At this point in the season, the winner looks likely to be one of Mobley, Cunningham or Barnes, with fourth favorite Franz Wagner currently out at +1500.

Davion Mitchell +10000

Alperen Sengun +10000

Jalen Suggs +15000

NBA Rookie of the Year best bets

Evan Mobley +115

It’s a bit boring to back the favorite, but the simple fact is that Mobley has been the most impressive rookie at this point in the season. He has started every game he has played, has recorded eight double-doubles, and is doing it for a Cavs team that is defying expectations.

Franz Wagner +1500

If you’re looking for a longer shot, then Wagner could be worth a punt at this price. The eighth overall pick has just put in a 38-point game for Orlando against Milwaukee, and has scored at least 20 in six of his last 10 games. Should he keep up that volume of scoring, Wagner could be in the conversation by the end of the season.

Franz Wagner +1500

As already mentioned, Wagner is heating up for the Magic and looks primed for a strong 2022. At this price, he could be worth a shot.

Josh Giddey +2400

Sixth overall pick Giddey is another who is really starting to impress in their first season. The Thunder guard became the third-youngest player in NBA history to register 100 assists and 100 rebounds in his first 20 games, and is currently averaging 11.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game.
