2017 NBA Draft Lottery Betting Odds

The NBA draft lottery is one of the highlights of the offseason for such teams as the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns. You know, those teams that consistently tell their fans “We will change baby, we promise we’ll do better.”

Things are a little different this season because a team that is actually good finds itself in contention for the top pick. The Boston Celtics, who finished first in the Eastern Conference this past regular season, have the best odds to land the top pick thanks to their robbery of the deaf, dumb and blind Brooklyn Nets. The Celtics have a 25 percent chance of nabbing the top overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft but it is worth noting that since 1990, when the weighted lottery system was introduced, only five teams with the top odds ultimately received the No. 1 pick.

The next best odds to sit atop the draft order belong to the Phoenix Suns and then the Los Angeles Lakers. The fate of the Lakers franchise may rest in the way a few Ping-Pong balls fall, as the pick will be sent to the 76ers if it is not in the top three. And with the 76ers holding their own valuable selection, there is a chance ‘The Process’ adds two new top-five picks to their lottery-filled roster.

The magical Ping-Pong balls of fate could also go a long way on deciding who goes first overall. Markelle Fultz is the consensus top player but could get surpassed by Josh Jackson or Lonzo Ball depending on who gets the coveted selection.
