NBA 2017 Rookie of the Year Award Odds

NBA Rookie of the Year Award odds have changed dramatically since Dec. 5 when Ben Simmons was still on the board.

The Philadelphia rookie is no longer offering odds. Since Jan. 5, the award has been Joel Embiid’s to win or lose.

Online bookie agents should read below to find out the best way to manage betting on the NBA 2017 Rookie of the Year Award.

Joel Embiid, Philadelphia, -750

Embiid has been dominant for the 76’ers. He averages close to 20 points per game when shooting over 46% from the field.

Embiid also averages over 2 blocks per game. Unless he significantly misses time, Embiid should win the award.

Price per head agents had better have a max betting limit on Embiid even though the odds are short.

Without a max betting limit, there will be some players willing to dump a significant amount of cash on Embiid. That’s how big of a lock he is.

Per head agents who want the right tools for risk management should get PayPerHead, join PayPerHead today and upgrade to their premium software solution for FREE for a limited time only.

Malcolm Brogdon, Milwaukee, +950

Brogdon is one of Milwaukee’s key players this season. Brogdon has been dynamite as the rookie point-guard.

Playing at the same time as the Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo, helps. Brogdon appears to be getting better game by game.

If something happens to Embiid, if he suffers some sort of injury that leads to significantly missed playing time, Brogdon should be there to pick up the pieces.

As with everyone on this list, pay per head agents must make sure that max betting limits are in place.

Brandon Ingram, Lakers, +1500

Ingram has started to log serious minutes for the L.A. Lakers. Like Brogdon, Ingram’s only real shot of winning the NBA Rookie of the Year Award is if Embiid misses action on the court.

Also like Brogdon, Ingram has improved from game to game. He’s got the skills to be a star in the NBA.

Online bookie agents should be prepared to garner action from underdog bettors on Ingram.


Agents should make sure that max betting limits are in place. They should also use the schedule limit override tool via PayPerHead to close NBA Rookie of the Year Award betting during the weekend.
