Jabari Smith Jr. First Pick Odds -105 (Bet $105 to win $100)

The Orlando Magic hold the first pick in the NBA Draft. According to the NBA Draft odds, Jabari Smith Jr. has the best chance to go first overall as he's given a 51.22% chance of being selected first. Smith Jr. was impressive at Auburn last year averaging 16.9 points per game to go with 7.4 rebounds.

The 6-10 native from Fayetville, Georgia is a power forward and would fit in well with Orlando who is just looking for an influx of talent to add to their young core.

Chet Holmgren First Pick Odds +155 (Bet $100 to win $155)

The next best NBA Draft odds to go first overall is Chet Holmgren. Holmgren, a center prospect from Gonzaga is a seven-footer who can score. He averaged 14.1 points per game with 9.9 rebounds to go along with it.

He does possess some three-point shooting ability which is important for big men in today's game. Durability may be an issue with him which might give Jabari Smith Jr. a slight edge between the two.
