The Toronto Raptors are favored to take USC big man Evan Mobley with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 NBA draft, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Mobley is +110 to go to Toronto, followed by Jalen Suggs at +140. G-League Ignite players Jalen Green and Johnathan Kuminga are third and fourth at +160 and +600, respectively. Scottie Barnes rounds out the top five at +700.

The Raptors will likely be looking for a guard with Kyle Lowry potentially leaving in free agency, meaning Suggs might have some value at +140. Toronto is also not afraid to take risks and wait for prospects to develop, meaning Australia’s Josh Giddey at +5000 could be in play here.

It appears Green, Suggs and Mobley are favored to be selected No. 2 through No. 4 in some order, but it’s early to see which teams are leaning where. The Rockets can go anywhere at No. 2, making this a particularly difficult section of the draft to predict.
