NBA Sixth Man of the Year Odds Continue to Favor Lou Williams as We Hit the Season's Halfway Point

Lou Williams is one of the most electric scorers in the league, and he's won back-to-back NBA Sixth Man of the Year awards as a result. Of course, that resume has helped Williams remain atop the odds to win the award for a third consecutive season.

Williams (-160) is the lone favorite to win the award, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, though his teammate Montrezl Harrell is in a not-too-distant second place, checking in at +195.

The Los Angeles Clippers' dynamic duo have helped the team lead the league in bench scoring, averaging 51.1 points per game (PPG). As a result, Williams and Harrell are leaps and bounds ahead of Dennis Schroeder and Derrick Rose, who currently are tied for the third-best odds to win the award at +900.

Both Schroeder and Rose are averaging at least 18.0 PPG, and there's another significant drop-off after that top four.

Spencer Dinwiddie is available at +1400 to win the award, but at this point it certainly appears this is a four-way race.

Even so, there's still about half the year left to play, and injuries or a late-season run can certainly shake up these odds going forward.
