Los Angeles Clippers scoring sensation Lou Williams is favored to win his third straight (and fourth overall) Sixth Man of the Year Award, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Williams is +170 to win the award, heading into a season where the Clippers are also favored to take home the NBA Championship. A career 14.2 point-per-game scorer, Williams is coming off his second straight season as a 20-point scorer off the bench. While he may dip below that mark with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in town, the Clippers' improvement in the wins column may be enough to keep one of the league's best bench scorers in the conversation for a three-peat.

Following Lou Will in the odds for Sixth Man of the Year is Spencer Dinwiddie (+700) of the Brooklyn Nets. Serving as Kyrie Irving's backup, Dinwiddie is one of the league's best combo guards off the bench, coming off a career-high 16.8 points per game. He will be playing for a Nets team that will be without Kevin Durant this season, and in need of consistent scoring options after Irving.

Montrezl Harrell has the third best odds to win the award at +950. As Williams' teammate, they form one of the best bench duos in the league. Harrell should get a lot of crunch time burn playing alongside Williams, George, Leonard and defensive stopper Patrick Beverley.

Rounding out the top five in Sixth Man odds are Terrence Ross (also at +950) and Eric Gordon (+1400). Both players were key bench pieces on playoff teams last year, and expect to play big roles once again this upcoming season.
