Chet Holmgren may have been the No. 2 pick in the recent NBA Draft, but he’s the favorite for NBA Rookie of the Year just a few weeks into Summer League play.

Oklahoma City’s top selection notched a double-double in Monday’s win over the Magic, which in turn improved his odds from +380 to +350 at DraftKings.

It’s the second big boost for Holmgren, who opened as high as +550 in the Rookie of the Year market.

Holmgren posted 16 points and 10 boards in the victory over Orlando. He drilled seven of his shots from the floor and also added a pair of blocks.

The Magic’s No. 1 selection, Paolo Banchero, didn’t suit up in the loss. The Duke product opened the favorite for Rookie of the Year, but has held firm at +400.

Jabari Smith Jr. Down, Keegan Murray Up

Smith Jr. was quiet in his Summer League debut, registering 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting in 31 minutes.

He turned in a much better effort Monday against the Spurs. The former Auburn standout poured in 19 points and fell one board shy of a double-double.

Yet, Smith Jr.’s trending down – his Rookie of the Year odds climbed from +475 to +675 overnight, with Jaden Ivey (+500) sliding into the No. 3 spot.

Murray, meanwhile, is the only other riser in this market. Sacramento’s top pick’s shifted from +850 to +750.

Murray, out of Iowa, has turned in back-to-back games with at least 20 points, including a 23-point outburst Sunday in a win over the Pacers.
