Odds as of June 23 at FanDuel Sportsbook

Smith opened as the favorite across the sportsbooks, despite Auburn’s short run in the NCAA Tournament. His odds have steadily improved over the past couple months and he will enter draft day as the odds-on favorite to be the first-overall pick.

Odds to Be Selected First Overall in 2022 NBA Draft

  • [June 23] Jabari Smith’s odds to go #1 overall have shortened dramatically as of draft day. He is now a -380 favorite, compared to -142 about 48 hours ago.
  • [June 21] Already a slight favorite, Auburn’s Jabari Smith Jr has seen his odds improve over the past ten weeks. He is now, on average, a -142 bet to go first overall. Duke’s Paolo Banchero (+205) has overtaken Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren (+253) for second-favorite.
  • [April 12] While the three favorites are well known, could a team fall in love with Purdue’s Jaden Ivey during the pre-Draft process? He’s been compared to Ja Morant, and could be worth a shot at this early price before team workouts and the Draft Combine begin if you think he will rise
