We've all been aware of LaMelo Ball since he was a young teen, and have followed his unusual career path but now Lonzo's youngest brother is set to be selected in the NBA Draft and could get picked as high as first overall. 

DraftKings have slashed his price in to -106 second favorite, having had him at +350 in January, showing that the chances of him going 1.01 have increased in the past few months.

 

Ball is either second or third favorite to be taken first depending on which book you're using but if you believe LaMelo, who has been playing for the Illawarra Hawks of the National Basketball League, could be first overall then you need to use odds comparison to get the best price.

The shortest price for the young guard is -106 to be taken first overall, narrowly behind former-Bulldog Anthony Edwards. If you bet $50 at -106 on Ball to be selected first overall, and he is, you'd get a total return of $97.17. If you made that same bet with FanDuel, who are offering on +300, you'd get a huge $200.

It looks like a three-way battle to be selected first with LaMelo Ball and Anthony Edwards competing with James Wiseman, another young talent with an unusual journey to the NBA, with the center playing three games for Memphis before withdrawing due to eligibility concerns.

Make sure you're betting smart and using Oddschecker to ensure that you're getting the best possible price when placing a bet.
