The New Orleans Pelicans had just a 6 percent chance of landing the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft but overcame the odds for an opportunity to select Duke's Zion Williamson in June.

And with Tuesday's lottery win came a giant bump in the Pelicans' championship chances - at least according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

New Orleans was initially tied for the worst odds of winning the 2019-20 NBA title at 300-1, but the number was lowered to 25-1 after the lottery, which sees the Pelicans tied for 10th with the Denver Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Romo drawing bets to win AT&T Byron Nelson at 10K-1 odds Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is considered an extreme long shot to win the AT&T Byron Nelson, but that isn't stopping bettors from backing him. Jeff Sherman, vice president of risk management at the Westgate SuperBook, told Action Network's Jason Sobel that they've taken 10 bets, including two at $100 each, for Romo to win the tournament at 10,000-1 odds. This will be the third PGA Tour start for Romo, who admitted he'll be nervous when the tournament gets underway Thursday at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. "I think that's part of anything that's important to you," Romo told Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News on Monday.

The New Orleans Pelicans will have the No. 1 pick in the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft. With several studs expected to jump from the college ranks to the pros this summer The Pelicans went from the worst team at 300 / 1 to one of the top teams at 25 / 1 according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

The change in odds is related to the increased likelihood that superstar Anthony Davis will remain in New Orleans this season now that the franchise has a chance to draft Williamson.

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks' odds remained unchanged at 16-1 after the team fell to No. 3 in the lottery despite having the worst record in the Association last season.

"We think it's a lot more likely that Anthony Davis decides maybe New Orleans isn't so bad now that they're getting Zion," Westgate director John Murray said, according to ESPN's Ben Fawkes.

Murray added: "We're not going to raise the Knicks' odds yet, but this may reduce their chances of landing Kevin Durant."

The Golden State Warriors are still listed as the favorite to win it all next season.
