NFL Draft Prop Bets at DraftKings Sportsbook
DraftKings Sportsbook has been the forefront of sports betting in the US in its infancy, and it has taken a huge leap with other sports being suspended and has dozens of NFL Draft markets, with hundreds of bets to be made. In late March, DraftKings added more offerings to its NFL Draft repertoire. Let’s look at the new props, top bets, and one of the most popular props available.
Top 3 NFL Draft Bets at DraftKings Sportsbook
There are tons of markets for NFL Draft betting, but finding the best ones can be tough. The NFL Draft is not a science, so it relies a lot on the feel of the games and researching which teams may like certain players based on media reporting, draft visits and more. Let’s take a look at the top three NFL Draft bets right now on DraftKings Sportsbook.
1. Tua Tagovailoa -167 to be Drafted by the Dolphins
Under “Tua Tagovailoa Draft Specials”, bettors can choose who they believe will be the team that drafts the former Alabama quarterback. The Dolphins seem like shoo-ins to draft the lefty, but the price is only -167. The reason this is a terrific bet is because of the hedging ability. Justin Herbert is +250 to be the second QB drafted, which almost certainly would happen if Tua does not go to the Dolphins. In addition, if Herbert is the second QB drafted that means Tua must be the third. He is +500 to be the third QB drafted, so this series of bets can lead to profit depending on how you decide to bet.
2. Under 6.5 Offensive Linemen Drafted in the First Round -143
Seven offensive linemen in the first round is a huge number, even when you factor in the four tackles that are certainly going in the first (Becton, Wirfs, Thomas, and Wills). Likely there will not be more than one or two interior offensive linemen in the first round, as this is a draft with more talented offensive tackles. At -143, you are paying some juice but seven of 32 picks is a ton.
3. Andrew Thomas over 10.5 Draft Position
A few months ago, Thomas was one of the top prospects in the NFL Draft. He’s still a terrific prospect, but 10.5 may be a bit ambitious with the increase of Wirfs, Wills, and Becton’s stock. Under 10.5 would mean that Thomas would have to be selected above at least two of those tackles. 10.5 is a bit too high for Thomas, so expect that number to drop.
New NFL Draft Prop Bets
In late March, DraftKings Sportsbook has added a plethora of draft betting markets. Here’s some of the options that were added:
- Team to Draft Player (Chase Young, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert)
- Player Draft Position (Various players, bet the over or under on draft position)
- Conference with Most First Round Picks (SEC or the Field)
- First Pick by Position (QB, RB, WR, OL, TE, DL, LB, CB, S)
