Dario Saric remains the heavy favorite in the Rookie of the Year race, according to Bovada, checking in Monday with 5/12 odds.

Saric was also the favorite in last month's update at 1/2.

Joel Embiid remains second at 11/4, even though he'll finish the season having played just 31 games.

Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon -- who has been hot lately, averaging 13.3 points and 4.6 assists, shooting 51 percent from the field and 90 percent from the line during his last 17 games -- is third in ROY odds at 15/4. 

Some think Brogdon is more deserving because he's helping his team to the playoffs. Milwaukee is 12-5 during that aforementioned stretch from Brogdon and has risen to the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference at 40-37.

Saric, though, has stood out nearly every night for the Sixers. Since Feb. 8, Saric has played 26 games and averaged 18.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists. He's shot 45 percent from the field, 31 percent from three and 81 percent from the line.

If Saric does win, he'll be the Sixers' third-ever Rookie of the Year, joining Allen Iverson (1996) and Michael Carter-Williams (2013).
