Cade Cunningham should be the No. 1 pick of the 2021 NBA Draft on Thursday, but it gets spotty thereafter.

We covered the odds to be drafted No. 2 on Wednesday. Here's how the board is shaping up for the third overall selection (owned by the Cavaliers), along with a couple of notes on prospect trends.

Odds to be drafted No. 3 overall

Player Odds
Evan Mobley -225
Jalen Green +250
Jalen Suggs +350
Scottie Barnes +900
Jonathan Kuminga +1300
James Bouknight +8000
Franz Wagner +10000
Cade Cunningham +10000
Moses Moody +10000
Josh Giddey +12000
Davion Mitchell +13000
Keon Johnson +13000
Corey Kispert +20000
Jalen Johnson +25000

Evan Mobley (-140 to -225)

Mobley was in the mix at No. 2 for a while, but he's currently the chalk to go No. 3. The USC big man was listed at -185 on Monday before getting a bump to -225 on Tuesday.

Jalen Green has been heavily linked to the Rockets at No. 2 and should follow Cunningham. Mobley in a Cavaliers uniform seems more likely by the hour.

Scottie Barnes (+2900 to +900)

Barnes' stock is rising at a torrid pace. The versatile Florida State product's draft spot is at 5.5, but under bettors have to pay a hefty tax of -400.

The most plausible team for Barnes is the Raptors (No. 4). With the price shifting from +2900 to +900 and draining all the value, we suggest passing on the current market number.

Davion Mitchell (+6000 to +13000)

Mitchell put on a clinic at Baylor last year en route to a national title. His draft spot over/under topped out at 8.5, but that appears to be his peak: He's back up to 10.5 and likely irrelevant to Cleveland. Other prospects such as James Bouknight, Franz Wagner, and Josh Giddey are in a similar position after dropping back in the field.
