There were many doubters about how Ball’s rookie season was going to play out as many thought that his awkward shot form and inconsistency were going to hold him back but that has not been the case at all. He has continued to progress as the season goes on as he has shifted from a bench role to the starting lineup and has helped lead this Hornets team to a 13-15 record thus far which is good for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
He has also developed chemistry with his players which can be seen in many highlight videos.

With that being said, bettors should get in on Ball’s odds as soon as possible before they become shorter than they already are. Aside from injury, there is no reason that Ball can’t continue his upward trend in the league.
Aside from LaMelo Ball, there are other notable names with longer odds such as Tyrese Haliburton of the Sacramento Kings who is averaging 12.2 ppg, 5.2 apg, and 3.5 rpg or Immanuel Quickley of the New York Knicks who is going for 12.4 ppg 2.3 rpg, and 2.7 apg.
