The NBA's Sixth Man of the Year race is all but over. Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson has extended his lead as the month of March comes to a close.

Per NBA futures odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, Clarkson is an overwhelming favorite of -1450. His closest challengers are all +2400 - Chris Boucher (Toronto Raptors), Goran Dragic (Miami Heat), Montrezl Harrell (Los Angeles Lakers) and Terrence Ross (Orlando Magic), who has missed seven straight games but is expected to return to action March 30.

Shake Milton (+4200) of the Philadelphia 76ers, Carmelo Anthony (+5500) of the Portland Trail Blazers, Patty Mills (+6500) of the San Antonio Spurs and Tyler Herro (+6500) of the Heat round out the top-nine players in the odds.

Clarkson is averaging a career-high 17.2 points along with 4.0 rebounds per game in his second season with the Jazz. He scored 28 points from off the bench in Utah's fifth straight win March 27. That snapped his five-game shooting slump in which he made just 23% of his shots.

The seventh-year pro's production off the bench in 25 minutes per contest has helped the Jazz own the NBA's best record at 35-11.
