Following the first-ever November NBA Draft, the league will get back to more of a normal schedule in 2021 when it holds its selection show during the summer. Typically held in late June, the 2021 NBA Draft will take place on July 29 – so basically a month after its usual slot.
Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham, USC’s Evan Mobley and Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs are some of the top prospects available in this year’s draft.
Draft odds will be posted soon at the top US sportsbooks. Expect to see props like “Who will be drafted No. 1 overall?” and “How many college freshman will be drafted in the top 10?”

How to bet on the NBA Draft
The primary way to bet on the NBA Draft is to take a proposition or “prop” bet on when a player will be drafted. The most popular prop is which player will be taken 1st overall, with varying odds at different sportsbooks.
If a player is slated with -150 odds to be selected first overall, that means a bettor would have to wager $15 to profit $10 if the player is selected first. If an underdog with +300 odds is taken first overall, a bettor who backed that player would profit $45 on a $15 bet.
