Wooden Award Odds Favor Cassius Winston Over Markus Howard and Jordan Nwora


Cassius Winston came into the season favored to win the 2019-20 Wooden Award, and not much has changed, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Michigan State senior is averaging 18.1 points and 6.1 assists per game this season, and he's led the Spartans to a 14-4 record thus far. That impressive effort has kept him atop the odds to win the 2019-20 Wooden Award, and he's currently available at +500.

Marquette's senior guard Markus Howard isn't too far behind though, as his odds have been set at +600. Howard has been on a tear this season, averaging 27.3 points per game, and he's powered the Golden Eagles to a 13-5 start.

Following those two, Dayton's Obi Toppin and Louisville's Jordan Nwora are tied for the third-best odds at +650.

Duke's Vernon Carey Jr. (+750) has the best odds among all freshman, and his 17.6 points and 8.5 rebounds per game have helped the Blue Devils jump out to a 15-2 start to the season. He'll certainly have a chance to increase his standing in the odds tonight, when No. 3 Duke faces No. 11 Louisville.

After Carey, there's a pretty significant drop-off, as Payton Pritchard has the sixth-best odds, and he's all the way back at +1500.

While there seems to be a pretty well-defined top five in the odds to win the 2019-20 Wooden Award, there's still plenty of time for someone to make a late-season run. Expect these odds to continue to shift as the season progresses.
