A waste of money or a worthwhile risk?

Betting analyst Ben Fawkes said that Los Angeles Lakers rookie Bronny James is the favorite to win the 2024/25 Rookie of the Year title. In any case, this is evidenced by the fact that Bronny is the most bet on among all basketball players in the 2024 draft.

“I saw that someone had already bet $100. Bronny gets three times as many bets as Zach Eady,” says Ben Fowkes, an employee at the bookmaker.

There is no doubt that Bronny is the most popular player in the last draft, but no serious analyst considers James a contender for the title of best rookie of the season. The son of LeBron James is expected to start the season in the Development League. Moreover, his performance in the Summer League has not yet impressed: four points (two successful shots in nine attempts) in 22 minutes on the court.

Bronny missed Game 2 with a sore knee. Health is also a big factor; don’t forget about the cardiac arrest. So what are the odds that James will win Rookie of the Year?

At the moment, Bronny’s chances of winning the Rookie of the Year title are estimated at +30,000. This means that with a $100 bet, the potential winnings will be $30,000. Therefore, you can bet a small amount of money on James. You wouldn’t mind losing, but in case of a miracle, you can take home a huge jackpot.

What is the overall list of favourites, according to the bookmakers?

Alexander Sarr (Washington Wizards) +650. Zach Eady (Memphis Grizzlies) +700. Zachary Risascher (Atlanta Hawks) +750. Dalton Knecht (Los Angeles Lakers) +850. Houston Rockets +1000.

Of course, each company has its own opinion, but the overall favorite is Alexander Sarr. He is expected to receive significant playing time due to Washington’s weak roster, which will allow him to accumulate the necessary stats to win the award.

What chances did previous winners of the “Best Newcomer of the Season” title have of winning the award?

2023/2024: Victor Vembanyama (San Antonio Spurs) -145; 2022/2023: Paolo Banchero (Orlando Magic) +200; 2021/2022: Scotty Barnes (Toronto Raptors +1100; 2020/2021: LaMelo Ball (Charlotte Hornets) + 400; 2019/2020: Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies) +250; 2018/2019: Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks) +250 ;

As we can see, in the race for the title of best rookie there is often always a clear favourite who has a better chance of winning. The only surprise is Scotty Barnes’ victory at the end of the 2021/2022 season. We can say that this year the race promises to be intense and the list of real contenders is wide.

But if by some miracle Bronny does win the statuette, it will be the most shocking result in the history of this award. Why not take a little risk?
