Victor Wembanyama has been even better than expected through the first few weeks of the NBA season. While his numbers are impressive for a 19-year-old rookie, a rival has emerged from the field in Chet Holmgren. The Thunder star has been incredible after missing his rookie season with an injury, and it suddenly makes the NBA’s Rookie of the Year race seem far from over.
While Wemby remains a big favorite to win the award, Holmgren’s odds suddenly make this a much closer race and give bettors a chance to win big. Below, we will break down the odds for the ROY award along with why we are betting against Wemby at NBA betting sites this season.
