2018-19 NBA stat leader odds, season predictions

A look at which players are likely to lead in points, rebounds, assists, and more.

1

Points leader - Anthony Davis or James Harden (+300)

Both Davis of the Pelicans and Harden of the Rockets are tied atop Bovada's odds for who will lead the NBA in points this season. Interestingly, LeBron James trails both, with +650 odds, followed by Giannis Antetokounmpo (+700). With several players switching teams, it's going to be interesting to see if Davis is able to take over the top spot here for the first time in his career.

2

Rebounds leader - Andre Drummond (+150)

The Detroit Pistons' big man is once again favorite to lead the NBA in rebounds. Drummond may not be the best free throw shooter, but he can certainly grab boards better than anyone around. Coming in at a close second, is fellow big man DeAndre Jordan, who will now star with the Dallas Mavericks.

3

Assists leader - John Wall (+300)

The Washington Wizards star is coming off a season in which he only played half of it. The Wizards are expected to contend for the Eastern Conference title this season, although they should factor into the playoff picture. Still, there may be other players to look at for possible assists leaders including the Sixers' Ben Simmons (+600), Thunder's Russell Westbrook (+270), or even Lonzo Ball (+1100).

4

Steals leader - Victor Oladipo (N/A)

The Indiana Pacers' All-Star is on an upward trend. Last season, he was nearly responsible for knocking LeBron James and the Cavs out of the playoffs early. Oladipo led the league in steals with 2.36 per game. It's the highest average of any player within the past four seasons, and he'll look to repeat. Other players to consider are the Raptors' Kawhi Leonard and Rockets' Chris Paul.

5

Blocks leader - Anthony Davis or Rudy Gobert (N/A)

One of these two players is the most likely to lead the NBA in shots swatted away this season. A lot will depend on how healthy they can stay. Both men are capable of sending away shots on a regular basis, and they were the leaders in the past two seasons. Davis could have the edge, and if he leads here, along with points, he may be on pace for an MVP Award.
