Predictions For NBA Draft Betting – Some Interesting Picks Later In NBA Top 10

One of the biggest storylines in the NBA outside of the playoffs to this point is the state of the NBA Draft, as the majority of online sports betting experts believe this is one of the barest in recent years. There is no doubt that the talent at the top isn’t what is had been in past years, and that has opened the door for a ton of speculation for what the teams in the top-10 will do. While Ben McLemore and Nerlens Noel are expected to be taken in the top-five, the question marks are much bigger in from 6-10 in the draft. Here is what we think will happen in those spots based on need and availability.

Jake Botelho's curator insight, January 13, 2014 8:33 AM

The highest rated player since LeBron James seems to be letting everybody, including himself down. Playing for the University of Kansas, Andrew Wiggins was an amazing performer in High School. Its no question that he would be in the NBA right now if it wasnt for the new ruling, making it impossible to go into the NBA from High School. Sadly, he doesnt even seem to be showing superstar potential at the college level, nevermind the NBA. Hes got a long road ahead of him and being compared to LeBron is a big milestone that will be hard to complete.
