What are Zion Williamson’s NBA Rookie of the Year Odds with Restricted Minutes

Prohibitive NBA Rookie of the Year favorite Zion Williamson is nearly set to make his debut on an NBA court. However, the all-world rookie will likely play in less than 40 games this season. A meniscus injury may cost Zion the coveted rookie of the year trophy, so who can you rely on when placing your bets in this second half of the season?
Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry has vowed the rookie will play “very limited minutes” to start his NBA career. How long that lasts is another story altogether. Despite their paltry 14-25 record, the Pelicans season is far from over. Sitting just three games out of the Western Conference’s final playoff spot, an added boost from the return of their best player could propel New Orleans into the playoffs.
Coaches love to win games, so if Zion displays a propensity to endure and dazzles on his debut, Gentry will likely change his tune. A bet on Zion to win the NBA’s Rookie of the Year trophy at +650 is far from a sure thing. Yet, at those odds it’s hard to find a better value bet on the board. Wait for the odds on Zion to become even longer, then hit your ticket for an even bigger payday.

Ja Morant NBA Rookie of the Year Odds Are… Inevitable
While the “Thanos” of the NBA rookie of the Year race has been sidelined, Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant has taken an “Iron Man” approach. The former Murray State Racer has put on a show in his inaugural NBA campaign. Morant has a firm hold on the race at -200 while leading the Grizzlies in most statistical categories. His highlights are numerous, and with his slick ball handling and unbelievable posters plastered all over the internet, he will be tough to beat.
Ja has put up nearly 18 points per game on 48% shooting while dishing out seven assists per night. His unreal handle and explosion pairs well with uncanny court vision to create the modern “point god”. The rookie’s skills have the rebuilding Grizzlies sitting in the Western Conference’ eighth and final playoff seed. If Morant can lead this Memphis team to the playoffs in this stacked Western Conference, the NBA Rookie of the Year trophy is his to lose.
