Hottest NBA Sportsbook Options Ahead of the Draft

Posted by: Charlie Smith

With the start of the March Madness tournament, the amount of NBA betting information on the internet has died down a bit. But that doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, most sportsbook players who do tune in for the NCAA Tournament (the overwhelming majority) can do so knowing full well that they are getting a good glimpse at the latest talent hitting the NBA next season.


Latest News for Those Who Bet on Basketball Games Online


Watching how the NCAA Tournament unravels can be an apprehensive affair, due to an early round upset having a tremendous impact on the rest of the bracket. But those bettors who tune in to watch the hottest NBA recruits will still get something out of March Madness, even if they were unable to correctly predict the outcome of the tourney.

Of course, with so many teams taking center stage in the coming days, knowing just which matchups to tune in for can be a daunting task. So, to help sportsbook player maximize their NBA betting information, we’ve assembled a list of the best recruits to keep an eye out for.

Rawle Alkins – Arizona

Position: Shooting Guard

Class: Freshman

Stats: 11.0 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.5 blocks per game

Although Alkins doesn’t boast the same publicity as Lauri Markkanen, Kobi Simmons, or Allonzo Trier, the young prospect will invariably turn some heads in the tournament. The thing that sets Alkins apart is his defense, and all eyes should be on Alkins to see if he decides to part for the NBA after only playing one year in college.

Trevon Bluiett – Xavier

Position: Shooting Forward

Class: Junior

Stats: 18.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.1 blocks per game

Some questioned his decision to withdraw from the 2016 NBA draft, but there’s no denying Bluiett’s numbers. In fact, his improvements in his finishing ability have only added to his draft value. He might not be as athletic as others on his list, but he’s certainly someone worth keeping some NBA betting information on.

Mikal Bridges – Villanova

Position: Shooting Forward

Class: Sophomore

Stats: 9.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.9 blocks per game

Bridges might not have been able to put up double-digit points for the defending champs, but he did rank 7th in the nation in TPA. Considering that there are 4,813 athletes playing collegiate ball, it’s safe to say that Bridges is one of the best in the country.

Vince Edwards – Purdue

Position: Shooting Forward

Class: Junior

Stats: 12.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.5 blocks per game

Like Bluiett, Edwards withdrew from the 2016 draft in order to raise his draft value. Once he announced his decision, head coach Matt Painter stated that the player could use some improvements on defense and Edwards. Not only did Edwards increase his steals and blocks per 40 minutes, he also made some noticeable improvements on offense.
