Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision to go ahead with the NFL Draft, while controversial in some circles, is seen as welcome relief in others. Not only will it give the nation’s sports fans a glimpse into normalcy during these most unusual of times, but it’s giving the nation’s sports bettors something big to wager on.
Over the years, the NFL Draft has grown in stature as a televised sporting event, and the gambling dollars have followed. And this year more than most, that is especially true, as mock drafts, trade rumors, and future NFL stars dominate the sports world headlines and the action at sportsbooks.
Top NFL Draft Bets
Anyone who watched college football last year and has seen even a minute of pre-draft coverage knows that LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is the huge favorite to come off the board first and be drafted by the Bengals. But from there, things are expected to get interesting.
Will Chase Young go No. 2, as is favored? Will his Ohio State teammate Jeff Okudah slide into that second spot? Or is No. 2 where Tua Tagovailoa will land? Currently, you can get +425 on Tua going with the second pick, with the lowest odds (+150) coming at pick No. 5, which is currently owned by the Miami Dolphins.
One of the most intriguing NFL Draft props is regarding wide receiver and which player from this great class of wideouts is expected to be drafted first. It’s a neck-and-neck race between Jerry Jeudy (-105) and CeeDee Lamb (+100). Henry Ruggs is currently at +200, or you can take the field and get +2000.
There is also expected to be an offensive player rush in the first round. Defensive prospects like Young, Okudah, Isaiah Simmons, and Derrick Brown all have shots at the top five, but overall you’ll only get -250 on there being more offensive picks in the first round, as compared to +170 for there being more defensive players coming off the board on night one.
There are so many fun props, like which will have more players drafted in the first round, Alabama or the entire Big Ten? Offensive line vs. Defensive line? Clemson vs. Ohio State? The NFL Draft gets started on April 23, and the money is rolling in.
