This NBA Draft has seen one of the weirdest line movements in history for its biggest draft prop. Jabari Smith moved from a -600 favorite to a +150 underdog to a -1000 favorite again all in the span of about 12 hours.
That -1000 line got as short as +115 (!) at around 1 p.m. ET at PointsBet. Then, the line moved curiously back to -150.

While the No. 1 overall pick is the consensus most popular NBA draft prop across all major American sportsbooks, the Action Network asked representatives at PointsBet to provide their three most popular bets outside of that particular one.
A matchup bet between former Duke guard A.J. Griffin and former Wisconsin guard Johnny Davis is the next-most popular bet at the sportsbook.
The money there is on Griffin to be selected before Davis at plus-money. That pick went off the board at PointsBet earlier this afternoon but had been priced at roughly +150.
DraftKings still has the matchup listed at Griffin +160 over Davis.
Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo lists Griffin as the favorite to go higher, with the former Blue Devil slotted at No. 11 and Davis at No. 13.
The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie lists Davis at No. 10 and Griffin at No. 11.
The second-most popular prop is on lengthy French international prospect Ousmane Dieng to go in the top 10. His stock has been steadily rising over the last several days and is mocked as high as No. 8 by reputable prognosticators.
His odds to go top 10 are +110 at PointsBet.
The third-most popular prop is for Shaedon Sharpe to be the seventh pick or better tonight.
All three of the aforementioned mock drafts have Sharpe listed after the seventh pick, but each had Sharpe up there at some point this month.
Sharpe’s odds to be a top seven pick are +175 at PointsBet.
