NBA Rookie of the Year Odds 2024: Favorite

Victor Wembanyama (-225 via DraftKings)

Much like the 2023 season, there's a clear favorite to be the 2024 Rookie of the Year. Wembanyama is hailed as a generational talent and is favored to be the No. 1 overall pick of the upcoming NBA draft. The San Antonio Spurs currently hold the top selection.

Wembanyama is a 7-foot-5 French prospect with certified handles and a three-point shot. Such a unique talent is expected to take the NBA by storm. Despite a strong rookie class, it's anticipated Wembanyama will roll to the 2024 Rookie of the Year award.

With the No. 1 selection essentially wrapped up, our Jon Metler takes a look at the second overall pick market in his NBA Draft Best Bets.
