With the NBA returning to a more traditional summer draft following the 2020-21 season, we’ll be tracking the odds for the top prospects to be selected at the top of the Draft.

Odds to Be Selected First Overall in 2021 NBA Draft

  • [July 27] While Cunningham has stayed atop the board and is pretty secure to go first overall, both Jalen Green at #2 and Evan Mobley at #3 have seen their prices shorten significantly to go in those slots as the consensus builds they will be the picks
  • [July 21] Cunningham’s odds have slightly dipped, but his closest competitor Jalen Green has also seen his odds fade to +1500
  • [July 13] With the draft now just weeks away, Cunningham is the runaway favorite to go #1 to Detroit, at odds of -10000. Jalen Green’s odds have shortened to +1000
  • [June 21] While Cunningham remains the overwhelming favorite, Jalen Suggs has risen to 2nd position at odds of +1000 to be the first player selected
  • [May 4] Although the formal draft process has yet to begin, Cade Cunningham has seen his odds to be the first overall pick in 2021 shorten further, now at odds of -500
  • [March 8] With his Oklahoma State Cowboys likely earning a strong seed in the NCAA Tournament, Cunningham remains a heavy odds-on favorite. New players added to the market include Arkansas’ terrific freshman Moses Moody, and departed Duke player Jalen Johnson – who are both at odds of +2000 to go #1
  • [February 12] Cade Cunningham has opened as the heavy -300 favorite to be selected first overall at the 2021 NBA Draft this coming summer. After their debuts with the G-League Ignite squad, Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga are next in the running at odds of +550
