Lou Williams' Lead as Odds-On Favorite to Win Third Straight Sixth Man Award Grows
By Dan Israeli
Lou Williams' odds as the heavy favorite to win the 2019-20 NBA Sixth Man of the Year award continue to improve, as the Los Angeles Clippers' guard is now -140 to win, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Williams is extending his lead over teammate Montrezl Harrell, who remained at +550 to win the award. Both players are major contributors for the title-favorite Clippers, with Williams averaging 21.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.2 assists, while Harrell is putting up 18.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per contest.
While they have played the majority of their games off the bench, both Williams and Harrell average near starter minutes this season, with the former averaging 32 minutes per game and the latter averaging 29.4 minutes.
Meanwhile, Spencer Dinwiddie is making a strong case for Sixth Man of the Year with the third-best odds at +1100. Dinwiddie has been on a tear in his past eight games, averaging 24.5 points and 7.7 assists per game, but he's been doing it as a starter in place of Kyrie Irving, who has been shelved with a shoulder injury.
Rounding out the top five in Sixth Man odds are Goran Dragic (+1400) of the Miami Heat and Bogdan Bogdanovic (+2000) of the Sacramento Kings.
