NFL Draft Props

We are just a few days away from the 2016 NFL Draft. First round action is scheduled for Thursday night at 8:00 EST.

Each year oddsmakers open up the betting on number of prop bets. I’ve included a full list of the ones I have found below.

Wagering your bankroll on something as uncertain as the NFL draft is a big risk. The information is limited and mock drafts are rarely accurate.

With that said, it is fun to look at the odds and get an idea of what the experts are expecting to take place.

If you are itching to bet on the NFL, you might want to check out the early NFL odds that have recently been released.

That’s not to say you won’t find some value in the odds listed below. Just don’t get carried away by betting everything on the board.

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

Who Will Be Selected 1st Overall?

Jared Goff -1500
Carson Wentz  +700
Any Other Player  +3300

* Nothing is certain just yet, but all signs point to the Titans taking Goff No. 1 overall. The Eagles have made it clear they want Wentz at No. 2. For them to trade up to that spot, they have to believe Tennessee is going with Goff.

Individual Player Draft Positions

Joey Bosa

Over 5 (+100)
Under 5 (-140)

* I believe Bosa was a lock to go in the 1st round prior to the two big trades that took place. In order to cash on the Under, Bosa would have to go No. 3 to San Diego or No. 4 to Dallas.

Myles Jack

Over 8 (-120)
Under 8 (-120)

Ezekiel Elliot

Over 8.5 (-120)
Under 8.5 (-120)

Paxton Lynch

Over 21.5 (-120)
Under 21.5 (-120)

* I think the consensus here would be that Lynch falls into the late 1st round or early 2nd. The fact that oddsmakers have set his over/under at 21.5, suggest that won’t be the case. Looking at the board the Bills at No. 18 and Jets at No. 19 could be fits. I however, believe oddsmakers are expected a team to trade up to take Lynch. I would lean towards the under here.

Derrick Henry

Over 36.5 (-120)
Under 36.5 (-120)

Picked in 1st Round (+800)
Picked after 1st Round (-1500)

AFC Team (-115)
NFC Team (-115)

*Unless you like betting on coin flips, stay away from props like this.

Will Fuller

Picked in 1st Round (-260)
Picked after 1st Round (+200)

Braxton Miller

1st Round (+2500)
2nd Round (+220)
3rd Round (+125)
4th Round (+400)
5th Round (+600)
6th/7th Round (+1600)

Head-to-Head Player Drafted First

Matchup #1

Joey Bosa (-155)
DeForest Buckner (+125)

* If I was forced to take a side here, I would lay the juice and back Bosa. Keep in mind that there’s several experts who have Bosa rated as the best player.

Matchup #2

Myles Jack (+450)
Jalen Ramsey (-700)

Matchup #3

Corey Coleman (+120)
Josh Doctson (-150)

Matchup #4

Dak Prescott (-260)
Cardale Jones (+200)

* This might be a spot worth taking a shot on the longer odds with Jones.

College Team/Conference Totals 1st Round

Ohio State Buckeyes

Over 5.5 (+170)
Under 5.5 (-250)

* Bosa and Elliot are locks. You also have to feel confident about Taylor Decker (OL) and Darron Lee (LB). The only other player rumored in the first round is Eli Apple (CB) and he’s far from a sure thing. You have to wonder why the books set this at 5.5.

Alabama Crimson Tide

Over 3.5 (-150)
Under 3.5 (+110)

*This line makes a little more sense. Alabama figures to see Jarran Reed (DT) and Reggie Ragland (LB) taken early. Ryan Kelly (C) and A’Shawn Robinson are also in the mix.

Ole Miss Rebels

Over 2.5 (-140)
Under 2.5 (+100)

*It all comes down to where you think Robert Nkemdiche will fall. If he goes in the 1st round, the over should be money. Laremy Tunsil (OT) will go in the top 10 and Laquon Treadwell (WR) isn’t making it to Friday.

Southeastern Conference (SEC)

Over 8.5 (+100)
Under 8.5 (-140)
