In less than 12 hours, the lottery for the 2012 NBA Draft and Anthony Davis will know where he'll be playing basketball next season, at least according to experts.

The 6-foot-10 national champion and national player of the year is the presumed No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but he's not yet taking anything for granted. He won't think he's the top pick until he hears his name called by David Stern. Davis talks about that topic, among others, in a chat with ESPN's Andy Katz. The backdrop is a familiar one in the video below:

Regardless, Wednesday night is a big one for Davis and his fellow former Wildcats, particularly Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Terrence Jones, who each are projected as lottery picks. Here are the complete odds for this evening's lottery, which will take place at 8 p.m. on ESPN and WatchESPN before game two of the series between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

Team - Odds of winning top pick - Odds of winning top-three pick

Bobcats - 25% - 64.19%
Wizards - 19.9% - 55.74%
Cavaliers - 13.8% - 42.57%
Hornets - 13.7& - 42.33%
Kings - 7.6% - 25.5%
Nets - 7.5% - 25.19%
Warriors - 3.6% - 12.66%
Raptors - 3.5% - 12.32%
Pistons - 1.7% - 6.1%
Timberwolves - 1.1% - 3.97%
Trail Blazers - 0.8% - 2.9%
Bucks - 0.7% - 2.54%
Suns - 0.6% - 2.18%
Rockets - 0.5% - 1.81%

Looking at the teams in contention, the Big Blue Nation will be cheering for its former stars to align. The dream scenario for Kentucky fans would be Washington and Sacramento getting to the top-two picks. Can you imagine John Wall and Anthony Davis or DeMarcus Cousins and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist playing together?
