Bub Carrington Rookie of the Year Betting Odds Released

Published

on

Pitt freshman guard Bub Carrington was drafted by the Washington Wizards with the No. 14 overall pick in the NBA Draft.

Pitt’s Bub Carrington shocked many this past year, going from four-star recruit all the way to a one-and-done lottery pick in the NBA Draft.

Now, he is one of the leading candidates to win the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award heading into his first season. He was recently picked No. 14 overall in the 2024 NBA Draft by the Washington Wizards.

Fanduel released its odds to win Rookie of the Year earlier this week, and Carrington was listed at the 14th-best odds at +3000. Alexandre Sarr, Carrington’s teammate on the Wizards and the draft’s No. 2 overall pick, is the favorite, per Fanduel, at +650 to win the award. Purdue’s Zach Edey is the most likely former collegiate player to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award at +700 odds.

 

Carrington started 33 games for Pitt as a rookie, averaging 13.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game. The Baltimore, Maryland native shot 41% from the field and 32% from three-point range in his freshman campaign, and alongside Jaland Lowe and Ishmael Leggett, starred for the Panthers in the back court.

Just days before the draft last week, Carrington joined Pittsburgh Sports Now on The Pittsburgh Basketball Show. He talked about his time at Pitt, his relationships with his Pitt teammates and coaches, the NBA Draft process, and much more. He even answered a question about the Washington Wizards (prior to the draft). Check out his full appearance on The Pittsburgh Basketball Show here or click the link below.
