Even though the 2020 NBA Draft is still months away, the oddsmakers at FanDuel Sportsbook have wasted no time releasing each top prospect's odds to be selected as the No. 1 overall pick this June.

Unlike what we saw leading up to to the New Orleans Pelicans selecting Zion Williamson first overall in last year's draft, we have a tight race atop the best odds to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

With a host of foreign and domestic talent eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft on June 25, 2020, here's a look ahead at the top candidates in the odds to go No. 1 overall in the NBA Draft.
