NBA Rookie of the Year Odds, who is the favorite to win the award? Lines courtesy of Bovada.lv.

Trey Burke is the favorite at 4/1 to win the NBA Rookie of the Year. Burke, the reigning NCAA Player of the Year, will be the starting point guard for the Jazz next season, acquired via trade from Minnesota. Burke is expected to log a lot of minutes next season making it easier for him to fill the box score.

Victor Oladipo (11/2) and Otto Porter (15/2), the 2nd and 3rd picks respectively, have the second and third best odds following Burke.  

Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick, has the sixth best odds at 10/1. Bennett, the forward from UNLV, will be the third banana, at best, behind fellow young scorers Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters.

Dennis Schroeder, the 17th pick by Atlanta, has the same odds, 33/1, as Nerlens Noel, the favorite to be the 1st Pick heading into the draft.

The Predictalator

The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players (playing or not playing/injured), coaches, officials, fans (home field advantage) and weather in each game.

04/21/2014 Highlight: Using the ResultsFinder for the week of April 14th - 20th, one could find that all highlighted, MLB "normal" or better picks went 22-16 (58% ML, O/U, RL). A normal $50 player utilizing our play value recommendations on these picks returned a profit of +$425 for the week

The week in the NBA was even stronger, particularly with the start of postseason play. Overall, for the week, normal or better picks went 3-1 (75% ATS and O/U), including starting the Playoffs 2-0 with such plays. New this, we have added halftime picks which have proven capable of providing strong opportunities to exploit the market. Over just eight NBA Playoff games thus far, halftime normal or better (and there are "better" halftime picks) against-the-spread plays were especially stron,g going 5-0 (100% ATS).

As the NBA and NHL postseason began, all highlighted, "normal" or better picks on the site, including halftimes, went 40-23 (63% ATS, ML, O/U and PL) for the week.

The Predictalator plays every game 50,000 times before it's actually played. This provides us the ability to assign probabilities to the likelihood of just about any outcome occurring in any contest including straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under winners of each game.
