The NFL Draft isn’t just for die-hard fans who curse their favorite team’s decision makers over a seventh round selection they don’t agree with. It’s also for sports bettors. has a list of several propositional wagers that can be made so you might not want to pass up this opportunity to make some money betting on the NFL.

Here’s the list along with my free NFL picks on a few of the props:

Over/Under Draft Pick Position

Amari Cooper
Over 5.5 -120
Under 5.5 -120

Kevin White
Over 5.5 -120
Under 5.5 -120

Todd Gurley
Over 20.5 -120
Under 20.5 -120

Melvin Gordon
Over 20.5 -120
Under 20.5 -120

I think Cooper goes before White so I would take the UNDER with Amari and the OVER with White.

The running backs are a tough call so I’m passing on those props.

Which Team Drafts Marcus Mariota?

Titans 4/9
Eagles 5/2
Chargers 4/1
Browns 7/1
Jets 12/1
Rams 20/1
Buccaneers 22/1
Bears 30/1

This one seems like a no-brainer to me.  The Titans need a quarterback and Mariota is very likely to be available with the second pick.

How Many Teams will Trade up for 1st Round Pick on Day 1

Over 2.5 (-320)
Under 2.5 (+220)

Total QBs Drafted in 1st Round

Over 2.5 (+300)
Under 2.5 (-450)

I think the first two picks are quarterbacks, but then you won’t see any of the other options like Bryce Petty, Garrett Grayson, or Sean Mannion going for awhile.

Total Running Backs Drafted in 1st Round

Over 2.5 (+425)
Under 2.5 (-700)

Again, it’s going to be Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon.  While it’s possible TJ Yeldon or Ameer Abdullah go in the first round I wouldn’t bank on it.

Total WRs Drafted in 1st Round

Over 5.5 (-160)
Under 5.5 (+120)

There are a lot of good options here, but it seems to me like WR is a position I have seen a lot of busts in my lifetime.  I’m going to pass, but an UNDER is where I would lean.
