Bet On The 2020 NBA Rookie Of The Year Here!
Zion Williamson is expected to make an immediate effect on a New Orleans Pelicans squad that is devoid of talent that was high-end after trading Anthony Davis into the Los Angeles Lakers off.
Unless youdont have any access to social websites orve been living under a stone, you understand Zion has become a comet from the area of basketball. His athleticism is outstanding at the NBA, which is saying something considering the league has the best athletes on earth.
Williamson will immediately slot into a starting role with all the Pellies and I believe his chances are put at a excellent price at -135??because when he is even 80% of what he revealed at Duke University this previous collegiate year, hell take the world by storm. I personally would not bet him those chances because of the injury risk variable but I could understand why it would be jumped on by bettors.
Based on these sorts of chances under, my 2 favorite picks for the NBAs Rookie Of the Year award are RJ Barrett of??the New York Knicks (+550) and 2018 first-round pick Michael Porter Jr. of the Denver Nuggets (+1800).
I really enjoy the spot RJ Barrett has been put in using the Knicks since he is going to be relied heavily to make a impact. He also led the ACC in scoring last year with Duke and that he will have lots of chances to put up stats.
Barrett was the No. 1 overall recruit coming into last year with Duke and I believe his game matches the NBA much more??than college due to the spacing that will be made available to him at a more complex crime.
As for Michael Porter Jr., the gift has always been there since he was the??top prospect coming from high school in 2017??but had a substantial back injury that hampered him to get his wholerookie time with the Denver Nuggets.
Seeing some of the footage of his rehabilitation has got me quite excited because of his prospects in the NBA. He can finish in traffic and has the type of baseball match which would be excellent in the next level because he could knock down shots from behind the arc.
Part of why I like Porter??is that his chances are in +1800 and nobody else on the oddsboard gifts that kind of value with his upside other than maybe Coby White using the Chicago Bulls (+1800).
