Our Pick: Trae Young to Win NBA Assists Title (+290 at Caesars)

NBA Assist Leader Odds and Predictions

After some disappointing seasons since their run to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Atlanta Hawks have re-tooled their roster to get them back in the running in the East. Trae Young is one of the NBA’s most dynamic offensive options, and his role with the Hawks ensures that he’ll be the primary playmaker on almost every possession he’s a part of. Given his steady availability and Atlanta’s rapid pace, Young should thrive in the race for the Assists Title.

Who Is the Favorite to Be NBA Assists Leader in 2023/24?

Tyrese Haliburton (+150) at Caesars

SeasonTeamAgeGMPGPTSASTT-ASTTOVT-TOV
2022-23 ATL247334.826.210.27414.1300

The favorite to win the NBA's assists title this season is Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton. On top of earning his first All-Star nod last season, he proved to be one of the league's best playmakers. Injuries were the only thing that derailed his campaign.

Through the 2022-23 NBA season, Haliburton averaged a double-double of 20.7 points and 10.4 assists with the Pacers. With the highest usage rate of his career, 23.8%, Haliburton helped to a 28-28 record when available. The Pacers were 7-19 without him.

Tyrese Haliburton has picked up where he left off for the Pacers last season. The Pacers’ definitive leader at the point guard position, Haliburton, has directed his offense to an early 2-0 start to the season. As a young team, they’ll have their ups and downs, but so long as Haliburton is available, the Pacers offense will be flowing.

Who Are the Contenders for NBA Assists Leader in 2023/24?

Trae Young (+290) at Caesars

SeasonTeamAgeGamesMPGPTSASTT-ASTTOVT-TOV
2023-24ATL25334.320.310.7324.714

Trae Young is one of the NBA's most dynamic scorers, making it easy to forget that he's also an elite playmaker. While the Atlanta Hawks haven't found the postseason success they've been searching for, Young's production certainly isn't to blame.

Achieving a 41-41 record through the 2022-23 NBA season, Young averaged 26.2 points and 10.2 assists per game. Even with a new backcourt partner in Dejounte Murray, Young maintained a 32.6% usage percentage and led his team in assists per game. With capable screen-and-roll partners in Capela and Okongwu, Young will always be expected to rack up the assists.

Through the early season, Trae Young has taken the role of playmaker more than his past position as a shoot-first option. He’s still an excellent offensive option, and creating opportunities off of his shot-creating abilities will only improve his production. Young is a player to watch in the race for assists leader.

James Harden (+500) at Caesars

2023-24PHI34-------

James Harden's future as a Philadelphia 76ers player is uncertain, but what is certain is his quality as a playmaker. Harden's playmaking, last year's assists leader, is driven by his scoring ability. Wherever Harden suits up to play this season, expect him to be among the top playmakers in the league.

After only playing 58 games last season, Harden maintained his star-like quality by averaging 21.0 points and 10.7 assists per game. He's not the primary focus in the Sixers offense, with his lowest USG% since 2012, but his efficiency in playmaking is where his value lies.

With the regular season in full swing, James Harden’s situation remains unresolved. While the Sixers have looked strong without him, there’s no timetable for his return to the court. There will be questions about his form when he finally returns to play, but when he does hit the court, there’s no question that Harden is one of the league’s best playmakers.

Nikola Jokic (+500) at Caesars

2023-24DEN28333.726.37.7235.015

The only frontcourt player in odds to win the assists title in 2023-24, Nikola Jokic, is expected to build on his NBA Championship-winning campaign with even more production for the Denver Nuggets. The NBA's premier frontcourt playmaker, Jokic's place among the league's best passers, is well-earned.

Leading his Denver Nuggets to the NBA title last season, Jokic averaged 24.5 points and 9.8 assists per game. It was a career year in assists for Jokic, owning the highest usage percentage of any Nugget to close the season.

Nikola Jokic has the unique role of playmaker despite being a center. One of the NBA’s most capable and creative passers, Jokic dominates the halfcourt due to his varied offensive threat. With the Nuggets’ shallow bench, Jokic will have every opportunity to boost his production.

LaMelo Ball (+750) at Caesars

SeasonTeamAgeGamesMPGPTSASTT-ASTTOVT-TOV
2023-24CHO22232.017.59.5193.57

LaMelo Ball is projected to be one of the NBA's next big stars, but his injury issues and an incompetent Charlotte Hornets roster have hindered his progress. With a new season, a clean bill of health, and some exciting new talents, Ball should thrive among his new cast.

While he played only 36 games last season, Ball impressed with 23.3 points and 8.4 assists per game. As the leader of one of the NBA's most fast-paced offensive units, Ball led his team with a 30.0% usage rate for the league's worst-rated offense.

While the Hornets don’t look to be competing for a postseason place anytime soon, LaMelo Ball has looked like a surefire contender for the assists title. Playing at an incredible tempo, regardless of the results, Ball leads a Hornets team that will get up the court with speed. A true showman on the court, Ball performs on a team with little expectation of team success.
