Will Victor Wembanyama be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft?

It seems like a certainty at this point, and there are still opportunities to make a quick buck at various sportsbooks.

With the 2023 NBA Draft on Thursday, June 22 (8 p.m. ET on ABC/ESPN), sportsbooks have odds for who will be the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 picks in the draft.

First Overall Pick

Wembanyama is -10000 to be the No. 1 overall pick at BetMGM. That means a bettor would have to wager $10,000 to win $100. He is understandably getting 22.9% of the bets and accounts for 93.7% of the handle.

The most popular No. 1 pick bet at BetMGM is actually Brandon Miller. He is getting 34.1% of the bets and accounts for 3.9% of the handle at +15000 odds.
