Betting odds on Zion Williamson going No. 1 are just silly

If you have an inclination to bet on sports and are considering laying down some of your cold, hard cash on Zion Williamson to go No. 1 overall during the 2019 NBA Draft, you should probably just look elsewhere.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a sure bet. Only, you’re not going to net much in return.

Darren Rovell of The Action Network shared just how silly the odds are on Zion going No. 1 Thursday night.

That means Williamson is a -10000 favorite to win, folks.

If you really need that extra dollar, go ahead and drop $100 on Zion. Or, if you want to really get wild, bet on some of the weird props.

For example, you can bet on the primary color of Zion Williamson’s suit (via www.MyTopSportsbooks.com):
1.    Black: 2/3
2.    Gray: 5/1
3.    Blue: 8/1
4.    White: 18/1
5.    Red: 99/1

Or, you could bet on the primary color of Adam Silver’s tie:
1.    Blue: 8/5
2.    Red: 4/1
3.    Gold: 6/1
4.    Purple: 14/1
5.    Gray: 32/1
6.    Green: 49/1

That’s the good stuff, ladies and gentlemen. Have fun, and bet responsibly. Or, just enjoy the 2019 NBA Draft and try to act surprised when Zion goes No. 1 overall to the New Orleans Pelicans.
