1st WIDE RECEIVER DRAFTED ODDS:

As of Thursday afternoon, Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy is the slight favorite to be the first wideout off the board at +125 with CeeDee Lamb of Oklahoma coming in just behind him at +130. Yet 57% of the money is on Jeudy to go first, despite only 37% of betters thinking it will be the case. In this situation, there is a +20% between handle (money bet) and bet percentage, indicating that sharp money is likely heavy on Jeudy to go first.

 

TOTAL WIDE RECEIVERS DRAFTED IN THE FIRST ROUND:

With 2020 projected to be one of the best and deepest classes of wide receivers in history, many betters anticipate that there will be plenty of top-tier talent to not have to reach for a receiver early before the second and third round.

However, the Handle and Bet percentage on this prop would indicate the opposite. DraftKings Sportsbook reports that despite 39% of their bets being on the OVER 5.5 receivers, 64% of the handle, or money, is on the over. It’s why the OVER 5.5 is listed at -250 (pay $250 to win $100) on DK Sportsbook, rather than on the UNDER 5.5 at +200 (pay $100 to win $200).
