NBA Draft Props: Towns Atop Odds List

The Minnesota Timberwolves won the lottery and will have the top pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, and the online sportsbooks have Kentucky freshman center Karl-Anthony Towns as the big favorite to be selected first overall.

At Bovada the NBA Draft props have Towns set as the -750 favorite on the odds to be the first overall pick on Thursday night, with Duke freshman center Jahlil Okafor at +300, and Any Other Player at +1000.

UPDATE: Reports on Monday afternoon suggested that Towns has been told by the Timberwolves that he will indeed be the first overall pick on Thursday. As a result, the first overall pick draft prop was removed from the sportsbook.

The Timberwolves finished last overall at 16-66 this past season and had the best percentage chance to win the lottery. Minnesota also has the top overall pick from the 2014 NBA Draft on their roster - NBA Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins.

The New York Knicks, who went 17-65 this past season, had the second-best chance to win the lottery but fell to the fourth overall pick. Instead, the Los Angeles Lakers, who went 21-61, will be picking second overall at the NBA Draft.

And along with props on the first overall pick at Thursday's NBA Draft, Bovada is also offering OVER/UNDER wagers on the draft position of some of the key players available - including Wisconsin senior forward Frank Kaminsky, who has an OVER/UNDER draft position of 12.

As well, the OVER/UNDER draft position for Kentucky junior center Willie Cauley-Stein is set at 9 at the sportsbook, and for Duke freshman forward Justise Winslow it's set at 6.
