When the Detroit Pistons announced that they were selecting Cade Cunningham first overall at the 2021 NBA Draft, it didn't come as much of a surprise. Cunningham was the most highly-touted prospect in his draft class, which was proven by the 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game he averaged with the Oklahoma State Cowboys last season.

Now, as the upcoming NBA campaign looms, it's already looking like the 6-foot-8 guard is projected to have a tremendous rookie season.

FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring Cade Cunningham to win the 2021 NBA Rookie of the Year Award at +195 odds. With not a lot of other scoring options in Detroit, it won't be surprising to see him putting up high point totals. The Pistons will likely be trailing in a lot of games next season, which should also give Cunningham a good opportunity to score some garbage time points.

Houston Rockets guard Jalen Green — the second overall pick in 2021 — has the second-best odds at +340 to be named NBA Rookie of the Year. Meanwhile, Cleveland Cavaliers center Evan Mobley sits third at +550 odds.

Here's a look at how the rest of the 2021 NBA Rookie of the Year odds are shaping up.
