The Kansas Jayhawks’ 6’8″ sharpshooting Tik Tok sensation is an expected lottery pick in this week’s NBA Draft. Considered by many to be the draft’s best shooter, Gradey Dick is one of 20 players invited to the green room for the big night.
There are several different teams that seem keyed in on the former Gatorade National Player of the Year from Wichita, KS. Here’s where betting markets suggest Dick is likely to be drafted come Thursday:
Odds for Where Gradey Dick Will Be Drafted
FanDuel has Gradey listed at +300 odds to be selected in the top 10, while DraftKings has him at +220. For the most part, scouts have him falling in the 9-13 range, which would leave Utah, Dallas, Orlando, Oklahoma City, and Toronto as the likeliest destinations.
All five of those teams have shooting needs and would be a natural fit for a player of Dick’s caliber. But which one seems the most likely?
Here is where the sportsbooks start to differ a bit. DraftKings has Gradey at +450 to go ninth to Utah and +330 to go 10th to the Mavericks, while FanDuel has him listed at +650 to the Jazz and +500 to Dallas.
Mock drafts most commonly have him in the 11-13 range, but there could be value for bettors who believe his natural fit could boost his stock. If you think Gradey will be selected outside of the top 10, DraftKings offers -300 odds on that as well.
With odds fluctuating wildly as new information is reported, there’s value to be had in markets like these. Gradey will bring an energetic and talented player to whichever organization drafts him, and perhaps he’ll bring you in some money as well this Thursday.
