There have been a number of coaches that have stood out this season. We saw two of the Coach of the Year favorite coach in the All-Star Game in Mike Malone and Joe Mazzulla. The race for who will win this award is tight and will likely change a ton in the last part of the season.

Below we take a look at the Coach of the Year betting market on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Coach of the Year odds after All-Star break

Joe Mazzulla: +175
Mike Brown: +240
Michael Malone: +260
Taylor Jenkins: +750
Doc Rivers: +950
Jacque Vaughn: +1000
Mike Budenholzer: +1400
JB Bickerstaff: +1500
Mark Daigneault: +1800
Tom Thibodeau: +3000
Will Hardy: +3000
Willie Green: +3500
Tyronn Lue: +4500

If the season ended today, Mazzulla or Mike Brown would deserve the award in my opinion. Mazzulla has the Boston Celtics playing better than last year when they went to the NBA Finals. Brown has been magical for the Sacramento Kings. In his first year with the Kings, he has them at 32-25 and the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. While there is still a lot of season left, I would place my bets on one of these two coaches to take home this award.
