Bronny James Odds

Bronny James odds have developed into one of the biggest storylines among the 2024 NBA Draft betting markets. James, who played his lone college season at USC, averaged only 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game. Oddly enough, he attracted betting action to be the No. 1 overall pick. Where do sportsbooks project LeBron James’ son to land with the draft around the corner? Let’s dig in.

Will bronny james odds materialize?

After the 2024 NBA Draft Combine, James’ draft position prop was set near O/U 39.5 at the best online sportsbooks. For reference, this market insinuates that James would be going before or after pick No. 39, with the over at -120 odds (54.6% implied probability).

This market was recently altered to 54.5, with the over set at -160. As of Thursday, those odds ballooned as high as -500 (83.3% implied probability). It’s justified, with James’ draft stock dipping recently. The Los Angeles Lakers, expected to ink LeBron James in the coming weeks, are currently positioned with pick No. 55 in the second round.

Unlike previous drafts, the second round begins on Thursday, June 27 (4 p.m. ET on ESPN), the day after the first round.

Some shops were flashing +25000 odds for Bronny James to be the No. 1 overall selection on Wednesday. There was a better chance that the new Lakers coach, J.J. Reddick, would’ve started another podcast than James going first off the entire draft board.

Enough with the jokes. Although James was a highly regarded collegiate prospect, he may have been better suited to continue to develop his defensive prowess at USC or transfer elsewhere than to enter the draft.

Which Team Drafts Bronny?

As noted, these Bronny James odds align with the notion that he’ll play with his father in Los Angeles. The possibility lingers that Dallas could draft him with the event’s final selection. However, this scenario’s implied probability (5.88%) appears properly baked in at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Over at DraftKings Sportsbook, the Lakers are -500 favorites to retain LeBron James’ services. This price point is equivalent to an 83.3% implied probability. Nevertheless, those odds will shift immediately if the Suns, Mavs, or another franchise swoops in to draft his son.
