The NBA Draft is hours away, and the one piece of buzz consistent around the Bulls is that teams across the league are uncertain of their intentions.

PointsBet sports book recently released odds for the Bulls’ first draft choice, including some familiar names and a fresh face at the top:

Player Odds
Deni Avdija +150
Patrick Williams +150
Obi Toppin +450
Onyeka Okongwu +600
LaMelo Ball +800
James Wiseman +1200
Killian Hayes +1800
Tyrese Haliburton +1800
Anthony Edwards +2500
Isaac Okoro +4000
Devin Vassell +8000

Maccabi Tel Aviv forward Deni Avdija and Florida State forward Patrick Williams find themselves tied as the favorite with twin +150 odds (bet $10 to win $15). Avdija has been a popular mock draft target of the Bulls throughout the predraft process; Williams’ stock has skyrocketed in recent weeks.

The Bulls are current owners of the No. 4 pick, but the above odds are not contingent on them selecting fourth overall. The bet is simply the Bulls’ “first draft pick.”

As of this writing, PointsBet also pegs Anthony Edwards (-304) as the favorite to go No. 1 overall, James Wiseman (-313) No. 2 and LaMelo Ball (-120) No. 3, possibly explaining their longer odds at being plucked by the Bulls.
