There are no shortage of 2024 NBA Draft prop bets available for the NBA Draft 2024, which begins tonight at 8 p.m. ET. You could make NBA prop picks on who will be drafted first overall, which former college player will be selected first, and also where LeBron James' son, Bronny James, will be drafted. In regards to the first of those 2024 NBA Draft props, Frenchmen Alex Sarr and Zaccharie Risacher, UConn champs Donovan Clingan and Stephon Castle, and Kentucky one-and-dones Reed Sheppard and Rob Dillingham are all in the running for the Atlanta Hawks to take with the No. 1 overall pick.

The 7-foot-2 Clingan is a traditional big man that's becoming rarer in today's game, and he's not the only big along those lines. Zach Edey, who stands 7-foot-4, has 2024 NBA Draft prop odds of +250 to be taken within the first 10 picks, while his draft spot Over/Under is 15.5. Before locking in any 2024 NBA Draft prop bets of your own, you'll want to see what SportsLine NBA expert Matt Severance has to say.

Severance is a well-connected writer and high-volume handicapper who has worked in the industry since 2005. After joining SportsLine, he quickly established himself as a top expert in multiple sports. Over the past three NBA seasons, he returned $4,452 for $100 bettors. He also is 170-108 (+2001) on his last 278 NBA picks. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now he's turned his attention to the 2024 NBA Draft and has revealed his best prop bets. You can only see Severance's NBA Draft 2024 prop bet picks at SportsLine.

Top 2024 NBA Draft prop picks

One of the 2024 NBA Draft prop bets Severance recommends: bet on Risacher to go first overall -- and Severance has that outcome as part of a play on the exact order of the first three players off the board. Risacher and fellow Frenchman Sarr are considered the top two prospects in this year's draft, but one only has to look at the pre-draft process to see why Severance favors Atlanta taking the former. Risacher worked out for the team last week, while Sarr declined to work out for the Hawks. It would be extremely rare for a team to utilize something as valuable as the No. 1 overall pick on a player that it didn't get to test on the court beforehand.

The Hawks have made either the play-in tournament or the playoffs in each of the last four years, so they aren't a bottom-feeder team that's years away from contending for a postseason spot. Thus, someone like Risacher, who is a bit more developed than other prospects, could contribute both now and in the future. He knocked down 42.4% of his 3-point attempts last season across the French League and EuroCup, as the competition he faced in those pro leagues was better than what any college player or fellow top international prospect faced. Risacher also feels an immediate need for Atlanta with starting forward Saddiq Bey a free agent who is also coming off a torn ACL. See which other NBA Draft props Severance loves here.
