Thursday’s Best NBA Draft Player Prop Bets

NBA Player PropOdds
Keegan Murray draft position, Under 5.5 -260 at Caesars Sportsbook
Christian Braun to be drafted Round 1 +300 at DraftKings Sportsbook
Jeremy Sochan draft position, Over 11.5 -150 at Caesars Sportsbook

Odds current as of publication; check out our DraftKings sportsbook review and our FanDuel promo code page.

1. Keegan Murray draft position, Under 5.5

Odds: -260 at Caesars Sportsbook

You’re not going to get rich of these odds, but this one is a lock. He isn’t going to be taken in the top three, but there’s an outside shot that Murray is selected fourth overall by the Kings—he recently had dinner with De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis. If Sacramento opts elsewhere, Murray’s floor is at No. 5 and the Detroit Pistons.

He’d be a perfect complement to Cade Cunningham and could replace Jerami Grant, who should be dealt this offseason. They’re short-ish odds, but this is the safest bet you can make among the non -1000s odds.

2. Christian Braun to be drafted Round 1

Odds: +300 at DraftKings Sportsbook

Now let’s find some value. Braun isn’t the most physically-imposing player in this year’s class, but his solid defensive attributes, his 38% shooting from deep last season, and his versatility in all aspects of the game make him an intriguing prospect.

Wings matter in today’s NBA, and Braun brings a ton to the table. In a class that isn’t all that deep, Braun should be selected in the top 30 picks.

3. Jeremy Sochan draft position, Over 11.5

Odds: -150 at Caesars Sportsbook

He’s 19 years old, he’s an outstanding defender, and he impacts the game in just about every way. There’s plenty of potential here, but we’re not sure it makes him a top-11 pick. If we lock in these eight as players who will go ahead of him (Banchero, Holmgren, Smith, Ivey, Murray, Sharpe, Mathurin, Daniels), that leaves just three spots open for him to hit on this prop.

We think players like Johnny Davis, Jalen Duren, AJ Griffin and Ochai Agbaji could all go before him. Sochan won’t have to wait long, but he’s more a back-end Lottery talent here.
