NBA Sixth Man of the Year 2023 Picks
Tyler Herro to Win (+1000)
Always an outside shooting threat, Herro has earned a reputation as one of the NBA’s best bench players even before he won last year’s award. Now, at +1000 odds, he’s a great pick to repeat as the NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
While it doesn’t happen too often, five players have previously been named 6MOY multiple times. Lou Williams was the most recent individual to accomplish the feat, having taken home the honors three times between 2015 and 2018.
