The 2018 NBA Draft barely behind us, Vegas oddsmakers rushed to get the action started, placing opening odds on the rookie class ahead of next season. The probabilities listed below designate the chances each player in the draft has of claiming the coveted 2018-2019 NBA Rookie Of The Year Award. This year's nominees, Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell and Ben Simmons all exceeded expectations, Mitchell in particular who just barely sneaked into the Draft Lottery in 2017.

The 2018-2019 Rookie Of The Year odds have been provided by Bovada.

DeAndre Ayton 13/5
Luka Doncic 3/1
Marvin Bagley 9/2
Trae Young 7/1
Jaren Jackson Jr 9/1
Mohamed Bamba 11/1
Kevin Knox 15/1
Michael Porter Jr 15/1
Mikal Bridges 22/1
Collin Sexton 22/1
Miles Bridges 28/1
Wendell Carter Jr 28/1
Donte DiVincenzo 40/1
Shai Gilgeous-Alexansder 40/1
Zhaire Smith 45/1
Lonnie Walker 50/1
Robert Williams 50/1

The list doesn't include any players who might have dropped to the 2nd round of the draft. It would take a miracle for a relative unknown to stake his claim to the list. Of course the 2017 season saw Milwaukee Bucks claim Rookie Of The Year honors after sliding to the 2nd round in the 2016 Draft, therefore absent from the opening bracket pitched by Vegas oddsmakers. based on the evidence we have at our disposal, who do you see being next season's Donovan Mitchell?
