With so many names linked to the Lakers head coach position, there have been questions as to who is the favorite to land the job. According to Sportsbook.ag, that distinction belongs to Byron Scott who is listed at +150, followed closely by Lionel Hollins at +350.

For those unfamiliar with betting odds, these numbers are based on a $100 wager, meaning that if you were to place a $100 bet on Lionel Hollins, you would win $350 if he is named the next head coach.

Scott is viewed by most as the favorite due to his familiarity with the Lakers, experience, and success as a head coach, with two NBA Finals appearances and a Coach of the Year award. Scott even said that he believes he’s the best fit for the job, but whether or not he gets it remains to be seen.

Hollins experienced great success in his latest stint with the Memphis Grizzlies, leading the team to a franchise record 56 wins, and the Western Conference Finals in 2013.
