Bronny James: The Unexpected Favorite in NBA Draft Betting

Based on his performance, LeBron James Jr. – known as Bronny – actually has no place in the top ranks of talent when the NBA Draft takes place on June 27th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. However, the 19-year-old is the son of LeBron James, which has prompted fans to make wild bets.

Although Bronny’s talent means he is only considered a late second-round pick, American bookmakers have received numerous bets that Bronny will be selected with the first pick in the first round by the Atlanta Hawks. Bronny is the “favorite” to be the first pick at FanDuel with 30 percent of the votes, and at BetMGM it is as high as 37 percent.

Many fans were attracted by the odds of 200, which means that 100 euros could turn into 20,000 euros. But the providers are not too worried about losing a lot of money. “They are all relatively small stakes, nothing over 100 dollars,” said Halvor Egeland of BetMG at ESPN.

Bronny on comparison with father: “I haven’t achieved anything yet”

The reason why so many NBA fans have placed bets on Bronny has to do with the future of his famous father. At the age of 39, he is still one of the best players in the league – and could leave his current team, the Los Angeles Lakers, for the new season. Because he has always expressed his desire to play with his son towards the end of his career, Bronny is in the spotlight ahead of this draft – even if he naturally wants to be viewed separately from his father.

“Everything that has to do with my dad, people try to associate with me – and all the extraordinary things he has accomplished. I haven’t accomplished anything yet, so I feel like there has to be this separation between Bronny and LeBron,” said the 19-year-old.
