The 2021 NBA Draft Lottery takes place tonight at 8:30 p.m. EST. The draft lottery is an interesting event in the NBA that combines superstitions, conspiracy theories and a lot of luck. Unlike the NFL, where teams can tank for the top overall draft pick, tanking in the NBA only leads to a better chance to win the top overall pick.
So tonight, the 14 teams who failed to make the NBA Playoffs will find out their draft position. Of course, some teams have traded their pick away already, but you get it. Let’s take a look at which teams have the best chance to get the top overall draft pick, then we will look at the NBA betting odds, in case you would like to bet along with tonight’s fun.
