Will Bennett go on to win the 2013-14 Rookie of the Year? According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the odds of Bennett winning the ROY are +300 for and -500 against. He also has odds of +1000 to play in the 2013-14 All-Star Game and -2000 odds against him accomplishing the feat.

How many total points per game and total rebounds per game will Bennett compile in the 2013-2014 NBA regular season? Oddsmakers currently list the over/under for points per game at 12, and 6 for total rebounds per game.

After multiple reports that teams were concerned about his weight, the Cavs surprised the masses by taking him first overall on Thursday night. While he's a solid outside shooter from UNLV, there are minor concerns about his defense and the fact that he had to have shoulder surgery.

On Friday Cleveland coach Mike Brown said that Bennett will have to compete with Tristan Thompson for minutes at power forward. Bennett is versatile enough to play some small forward, which has been a trouble spot for the Cavs over the years.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cavs are currently 100/1 long shots to win the 2014 NBA Finals. The Heat remain favored at 2/1, while the Thunder are 11/2 and the Nets and Clippers are both 10/1, respectively.
