Hello, National Basketball Association enthusiast. Has the performance of the Phoenix Suns through their first 27 games of the season significantly dampened your interest in professional hoops? If so, there’s gambling.
These days there’s a lot of different ways you can bet. One of the things you can bet on is who will be named the 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year. The fine folks or internet robots at Bovada have provided us with the following odds:
- Luka Doncic -120
- Deandre Ayton +250
- Trae Young +700
- Jaren Jackson Jr +1200
- Shai Gilgeous-Alexander +1400
- Collin Sexton +1500
- Marvin Bagley +1600
- Wendell Carter Jr +2500
- Kevin Knox +4000
- Mo Bamba +7000
For the layperson, this means that Doncic is the healthy favorite to be named ROY over Ayton. There’s not been much discussion about Doncic vs. Ayton this season, virtually none, but these odds aren’t surprising.
Through 24 games Doncic is averaging 17.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.3 assists for the Dallas Mavericks. Ayton’s numbers are 15.9, 10.2, and 2.5 for your Suns.
