LaMelo Ball and Anthony Edwards stand out as leaders of the new NBA generation

The Draft NBA 2020 appears as a key point in the market for the best league in the world. Two players arrive with an advantage to take the number 1 of the choice, and the bets endorse the predictions. According to the odds of the specialized house Betfair, Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball They are the top favorites to be chosen as the first in a novel and virtual format due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Edwards and Ball, son of the eccentric Lavar Ball, have a identical fee of € 1.91 for each euro wagered, provided they are chosen first. This privilege has recently gone to players like Zion Williamson, Deandre Ayton or Markelle Fultz, to name the last three. LeBron James (2003) or Shaquille O’Neal (1992) are some of the legends who were chosen as number 1 in the draft.

Anything other than Ball and Edwards being chosen first would be a major surprise based on the forecasts, both from experts and bookmakers. Third in the list of candidates to be number 1 is James Wiseman, pivot of the NCAA Memphis Tigers, but a long way from Ball and Edwards, with a € 7.0 fee for each bet.

Many options if possible have in Betfair the rest of candidates to be number 1, all with a 34.0 share. Among these candidates with almost no options to be first choice appear Okongwu, Haliburton, Advija, Toppin, Okoro, Kayes, and Vasell.

Trick 2 makes Ball a favorite

Wiseman’s trump card does not appear to be relevant in the first pick, but his favoritism to rank number two in the draft allows a new analysis of Edwards and Ball’s chances of having the second pick. There, LaMelo is less a candidate and, therefore, it is elucidated that he may be the favorite, with a minimal margin, to lead the 2020 litter in a draft that does not distill as much talent as in other years but that does have high potential in the main elections.
