NBA Draft Odds: 99% Chance Detroit Pistons Take Cade Cunningham

The NBA Draft is just a few weeks away, and with the arrival of the draft comes NBA Draft odds from all the available sportsbooks. It’s hard to predict where the world’s best young basketball talents will land come July 29, but NBA Draft odds can give us a better picture.

Oklahoma State star guard Cade Cunningham is the presumed first overall pick by most draft experts. That means he will likely land in Detroit as the Pistons own the first pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

But, do the latest NBA Draft odds support those thoughts? In short, yes.

Detroit Pistons Draft Odds

As you can see, NBA Draft odds have all but decided that Cade Cunningham will become the newest Detroit Piston come July 29.

Cunningham was the No. 1 recruit in the country coming out of high school and chose Oklahoma State over just about every school in the country. Cunningham averaged 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game in his freshman season.

If, for some reason, the Pistons passed on Cade Cunningham, oddsmakers have tabbed Jalen Green as the next option. Green famously skipped college basketball for a $500,000 contract in the NBA G-League.

Houston Rockets Draft Odds

As you can guess, Jalen Green is the most likely option for the Houston Rockets according to NBA Draft odds.

As mentioned before, Jalen Green skipped college basketball to sign with the NBA G-League, where he played for Ignite. Green averaged 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. It will be interesting to see how a year of professional basketball prepares Green for the NBA.

Evan Mobley, Jalen Suggs and Jonathan Kuminga are also options here, with Cade Cunningham also making an appearance in case the Pistons were to pass on him.

Cleveland Cavaliers Draft Odds

The 2021 NBA Draft really starts with pick No. 3. Cunningham and Green are presumed locks to go No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. But who will the Cavaliers draft third overall?

Evan Mobley is the best big-man prospect in the NBA Draft, according to experts and NBA Draft odds. Mobley dominated at USC in his freshman season and improved his draft stock with strong play in the NCAA Tournament.

Even though Green’s odds are better than Jalen Suggs’, most believe Green will be gone by pick No. 3. Jalen Suggs, former Gonzaga forward/guard, is another player that greatly increased his NBA Draft standing with an unbelievable showing in the NCAA Tournament.

Toronto Raptors Draft Odds

Who will the Toronto Raptors take with the fourth overall pick? Luckily for them, there seems to be at least four elite prospects in the draft, potentially five depending how you view Jonathan Kuminga. Either way, one of Mobley, Suggs, Green or Cunningham will be available come fourth overall. It’s expected the Raptors will take whichever player is left.
