According to odds courtesy of Bovada.LV, Burke, the No. 9 pick in last week's NBA Draft is a 4-to-1 preseason favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors.

Burke is the favorite over Victor Oladipo, who went No. 2 to Orlando, and CJ McCollum, the 10th pick by the Portland Trail Blazers. The Jazz acquired Burke in one of three draft-day trades, moving the 14 and 21 picks to Minnesota in exchange for the consensus national college player of the year.

Five days into free agency, Burke remains the only point guard on the Jazz roster.

The odds:

Trey Burke, Utah Jazz: 4/1

Victor Oladipo, Orlando Magic: 11/2

CJ McCollum, Portland Trail Blazers: 15/2

Otto Porter, Washington Wizards: 15/2

Michael Carter-Williams, Philadelphia 76ers: 9/1

Anthony Bennett, Cleveland Cavaliers: 10/1

Ben McLemore, Sacramento Kings: 10/1

Cody Zeller, Charlotte Bobcats: 12/1

Alex Len, Phoenix Suns: 14/1

Kelly Olynyk, Boston Celtics: 14/1

Kentavius Caldwell-Pope, Detroit Pistons: 14/1

Shabazz Muhammad, Minnesota Timberwolves: 15/1

Shane Larkin, Atlanta Hawks: 16/1

Sergey Karasev, Cleveland Cavaliers: 25/1

Tim Hardaway Jr., New York Knicks: 25/1

Dennis Schroeder, Atlanta Hawks: 33/1

Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia 76ers: 33/1

Only Darrell Griffith, in 1980-81, has ever won Rookie of the Year as a member of the Jazz.
