The Houston Rockets, Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic are all +550 to win the 2021 NBA Draft lottery, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. That makes sense given each team has a 14.0 percent chance to win the top selection.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Cleveland Cavaliers come in next at +700. Both have an 11.5 percent shot at the top selection. The Minnesota Timberwolves, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans round out the top 10. The Timberwolves and Bulls may lose their picks depending on how the lottery unfolds due to protections from trades.

Here is the full list of odds for each team.

  1. Houston Rockets +550
  2. Detroit Pistons +550
  3. Orlando Magic +550
  4. Cleveland Cavaliers +700
  5. Oklahoma City Thunder +700
  6. Minneosta Timberwolves +900
  7. Toronto Raptors +1100
  8. Chicago Bulls +2000
  9. New Orleans Pelicans +2000
  10. Sacramento Kings +2000
  11. Charlotte Hornets +5000
  12. San Antonio Spurs +5000
  13. Indiana Pacers +9000
  14. Golden State Warriors +15000

The Rockets, Pistons and Magic are also all -122 to get a top-4 selection during the draft lottery. The Bulls need to land a top-four pick to keep their selection as part of the Nikola Vucevic trade and are +350 to do so. The Timberwolves are +155 to get a top-four pick, but need to land in the top three to keep their selection as part of the D’Angelo Russell trade.
