NFL Draft Prop Bet Odds
Due to Covid-19, there isn’t much going on in terms of sports betting futures these days. Everyone is hunkered down (or at least they should be) as we all practice social distancing to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. However, football fans do still have the NFL Draft to look forward too. The big production event that was scheduled to take place in Last Vegas is being rolled back to a studio presentation, but at this point, fans will take what they can get. Today, I stumbled upon some this bonus offer along with some NFL Draft Prop Bet odds for next month. The following are my quick take on the odds and

WHEN WILL TUA TAGOVAILOA BE DRAFTED?
- 3rd Overall (+200)
- 2nd Overall (+400)
- 4th Overall (+900)
- 5th Overall (+175)
- 6th Overall (+950)
- Field (+1000)
My money is on Tua to the Dolphins 5th overall. I don’t know what the draw is for me, but I picture him playing in Miami next year. The Dolphins have made some excellent offseason moves including signing the top CB available Byron Jones, adding Shaq Lawson and underrated workhorse Jordan Howard. I believe Ryan Fitzpatrick can not only stir the ship if needed but can act as a knowledgable mentor to Tua when the time comes.
FIRST RUNNING BACK DRAFTED?
- D’Andre Swift (-130)
- Jonathan Taylor (+150)
- JK Dobbins (+650)
- Field (+800)
A lot of teams overvalue the running back position. I personally don’t expect any RB to go in the first 50 picks, but then there are some Draft gurus that believe one could go as early as the first round. The Rams pick 52nd overall seems like the perfect spot for the first RB to come off the board. After the Rams released Todd Gurley due to his bloated contract and nagging injuries, I think targeting an RB like D’Andre Swift is a win.
FIRST WIDE RECEIVER DRAFTED?
- Ceedee Lamb (-130)
- Jerry Jeudy (+130)
- Henry Ruggs (+700)
- Field (+1000)
This year’s wide receiver draft class is rumored to be one of the deepest and have some of the most talented athletes in over a decade. Some believe it’s as good if not better than the 2014 draft where names like Mike Evans, OBJ, Brandin Cooks, and Sammy Watkins joined the league. Lamb is my pick to come off the board first, but I could see him going a number of spots.
Joe Burrow to the Bengals and Chase Young to the Redskins seem like a lock to me. I also believe the Dolphins and Chargers are targeting Quarterbacks and after the Cardinals traded for DeAndre Hopkins they’ll look to draft offensive line, but everyone else in the top 15 could easily use Lamb’s talent.
