Lou Williams is now the odds-on favorite to win a record fourth Sixth Man of the Year Award, as the Los Angeles Clippers guard is currently -110 to take home the honor, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. His odds improved from the +125 they were a week ago.

By winning his fourth career Sixth Man award, Williams would surpass Jamal Crawford, who has also won the award three times. Sweet Lou is having another stellar year for the title-contender Clippers, averaging career highs in points (22.7), assists (5.9) and rebounds (3.1) per game.

Williams' teammate, Montrezl Harrell, has the second-best odds to win the award at +550. Harrell is the second part of the Clippers' one-two punch off the bench, and is also averaging career highs across the board with 18.1 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

Both Williams and Harrell have been asked to carry the load more often earlier in the season, due to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George already missing a combined 16 games this year.

Brooklyn Nets backup guard Spencer Dinwiddie is third in Sixth Man odds at +1100, as he is currently averaging 18.9 points and 5.2 assists per game. He is followed by Goran Dragic of the Miami Heat, who has thrived in a reserve role this season after spending most of his career as a starting point guard. Dragic is averaging 15.8 points and 5.3 assists per game for the Heat, who have gotten off to a surprising 11-3 start.
