    Anthony Edwards to go #1 at -180

    Risking 3.6 units to win 2

    Its very hard to play 2 big players at the same time so the Timberwolves arenít likely to take Wiseman, who isnít a shooter and would take time to develop. Russell is a good shooter but heís not much of a defender, and adding a bad defender such as Lemelo Ball would be hard. Ball is a bad three point shooter and he needs to play on the ball, so he wouldnít likely fit with Russell. The Timberwolves want to win now and Edwards fits with Anthony and Russell, after Wiseman, Ball, and Edwards, their is a drop off in established talent.

    Ball is kind of like Doncic with his shooting unlimited range but takes horrible shots.

    Ball is nothing like doncic, not close, he’s a garbage shooter who isn’t as established as doncic was.

    Ball's mechanics are horrible just like his brother's and he also lacks focus and doesn't play any defense

    So are Doncic's mechanics that is why he shoots so many airballs he basically blocks his own shot with off hand

    Agree, and I think his brothers game not translating to the nba that well will hurt lemelo too.

    Anything is possible but the wolves have an incentive to make people think a lot of teams want the first pick to drive the picks value up, I don’t see them likely trading it, teams have to likely figure ball will be available at 3 if they want him that badly for some reason

    it's been discussed at length in various NBA media that both the Wolves and Warriors would ideally like to either trade down or preferably out of the 1st round entirely in exchange for proven players, especially the Warriors. but all front offices have known that for a while and it seems like no one's looking to do either team that favor.. there just hasn't been any signs that either team has made any traction in that regard

    Warriors best two assets are the #2 pick this year plus the Wolves' partially-protected 1st next year, but it doesn't seem like they're willing to part with that Wolves pick which is probably smart. of course they would for a player like Giannis or Simmons, but Giannis is definitely off the table for now and Morey would ask far more for Simmons since he'd have to take Wiggins back in return. i think the Warriors would have to also throw in one of their own future post-Curry/Klay unprotected 1st's to get Morey to even listen at this point

    bottom line, i don't think the Wolves or Warriors will be happy at all if they're left to pick at 1 and 2 respectively tmrw

    Ball is just like his brother Ball. Good on the floor with and without the ball, but horrible shooters.

    Doncic is elite. Ball is not and I don't think he will be.

    I don't know if he goes number 1, but if he does it will be a mistake. Don't trust him. Wiseman will ultimately be the best from this draft.

    At that price absolutely. Might want to take Medvedev at +225. Novak pretty much needs to win only one set to advance. Worst case scenario you win with Edwards you break even.

    It's confusing when I'm asking about NBA Draft betting and you respond by suggesting I hedge with tennis set betting.

    That's like my asking which car to buy and you suggest a helicopter.

    what a mess this has turned into... Edwards doesn't want to play in Minny and thus they don't want him either, Wolves have no use for Wiseman because of KAT and the two sides haven't even engaged, and the Wolves are scared to take Melo at #1 which is understandable

    so the thinking now is that they could just take Wiseman and let teams bid for him from there.. not the worst idea since he apparently has far more demand than Edwards and Melo do

    Saw Anthony Edwards live and wasnít that impressed but Iím no scout and donít know much about the other guys. Edwards doesnít even want to play basketball. Wiseman might be decent value at +600 but hate betting on mostly predetermined shit like this and award shows. Someone or someones already knows whoís going first. Based on odds seems like itís Edwards and everything else is sucker bet.
