Where To Bet The NFL Draft


When the football season ends, a lot of bettors are left wondering what to do with themselves. Football is their main way of betting and without it, they are lost. After the Super Bowl there is just one thing even tangentially related to football happening and that is the NFL Draft.

Good news, you can bet on it. The draft is an important part of the NFL schedule as it fills holes and brings us the future stars of the league. Betting on it can be a lot of fun as there are so many players and watching it can be boring without a little money on the line.

In this article, we are going to cover everything you need to know about betting on the NFL Draft. From what the odds might look like, to where to bet it.

What is NFL Draft Betting?

Football Deposit Bonuses

The NFL Draft is a yearly event where teams select the best college players. Draft picks are set from worst team to best team in the interest of parity.

The top college players will then be given odds on the range they might be picked in. For instance, in the 2018 NFL Draft you could bet:

Baker Mayfield Over 6.5
Baker Mayfield Under 6.5

If he was picked between 1st and 6th, that would be under. If he was picked 7th or after, that would be over.

For the record, Bakey Mayfield was drafted number one overall that season so he was a firm under.

There will also be props such as:

– Total Number of SEC Players drafted in the first round
– Total quarterbacks drafted in first round
– Running backs drafted in the first round

Common NFL Draft Questions:

What is the most popular position to draft #1 overall?

From 1998 to 2018, there have been 15 players selected number one overall that played quarterback. That is not only the most by any position, that is not even close. Prior to this it was more evenly distributed, but it has become a quarterback league over the past twenty plus years and will seemingly remain so.

How To Bet the NFL Draft:

Bovada/Bodog: From the “Football” page, look for “NFL Specials” and the Draft odds will be listed there.

Bet365 Sportsbook: Right on the left side of the page click “American Football” and you will find the proper NFL Draft odds within.

NFL Draft Betting Strategy:

Of course, the strategies change from year to year as the player pool changes, but one bet that has paid well over the past few seasons is going under on the amount of running backs taken in the first round. Over the past few seasons, the running game has become more of a “by committee” type of thing and the number of top college running backs to not pan out in the NFL is high. Teams are putting less emphasis on this and getting their running backs later.
