Updated NBA Rookie of the Year odds

When Bovada originally release their NBA Rookie of the Year odds, guard Victor Oladipo of the Orlando Magic, the second overall pick of the NBA draft, was a huge favorite to win the award.

Oladipo has done nothing to relinquish the top spot. The former Indiana Hoosier is averaging 13.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.7 steals per game. In most year, he would still be the favorite.

This, however, isn’t most year. Philadelphia 76ers’ point guard Michael Carter-Williams is no the clear favorite with 1/2 odds. The 11th overall pick out of Syracuse has been fantastic from the start. He’s averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 3.1 steals per game.

The two players squared off on Tuesday night for the second time this season and both lived up to the hype. Each rookie posted a triple double. Carter-Williams had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists while Oladipo had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
