Bovada.LV has released its odds for NBA Rookie of the Year, and they look good for Victor Oladipo of the Orlando Magic.

Vegas lists Oladipo, a shooting guard from Indiana, as having 11-to-2 odds to capture Rookie of the Year honors, trailing only Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke, who has 4-to-1 odds.

At 15-to-2, Portland Trail Blazers point guard C.J. McCollum and Washington Wizards forward Otto Porter are tied for third in the Rookie of the Year race, according to Bovada. Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams, at 9-to-1, is fifth. Combo forward Anthony Bennett, the first overall pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers, is tied with Sacramento Kings shooting guard Ben McLemore for sixth, as both players face 10-to-1 odds.

Oladipo, Burke, and Carter-Williams are set to compete for their teams in the 2013 Orlando Pro Summer League, which begins Sunday.

The Magic picked Oladipo with the second overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Burke went 9th overall to the Minnesota Timberwolves, who conveyed his rights to Utah for the 14th and 21st picks.

Orlando's last Rookie of the Year winner was Mike Miller in 2001.
