NFL Draft Betting

The 2022 NFL season might only just be under way, but we already have one eye on NFL Draft betting.

While the pros are two weeks into their seasons, college football is just a little further ahead with the Heisman Trophy front runners already having put three weeks on their 2022 resumes.

So what do those online sportsbooks think about the early NCAAF action?

NFL Draft Betting Odds for 2023

There are a ton of great betting lines you can get involved in for the 2023 Draft. Here are the biggest.

Who will be the First Overall Pick?

The million dollar question people, and right now the early answer is Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud. He was terrific again at the weekend as the Buckeyes routed Toledo 77-21, and he is now just +200 (bet $100 to win $200) to go at #1 overall.

Second up is reigning Heisman winner Bryce Young, and he is right behind Stroud at +225 despite a couple of difficult weeks when he hardly advanced his chances of another individual honor in 2022.

Third best is another ‘Bama standout in the shape of OLB Will Anderson, who is +330 odds. Next up comes Ohio State OT Paris Johnson (+1000), who spends most of his time protecting the aforementioned Stroud.

The latest odds for the #1 overall pick in 2023 from DraftKings:

Which team will have the first pick?

Okay so we cannot rule out a trade messing up the order, but as of now you are looking for the team which has the fewest regular-season wins in the 2022 NFL season.

When the season kicked off this is how the line looked. We await further sportsbook updates.

NFL Draft Order for 2023

Okay so as yet we do not have a draft order, that will start to fall into place once NFL games are played for real. We’ll update the draft order live as everything changes week by week in the pro game.

One thing to note already is that the Miami Dolphins have already lost one of their 2023 first-round picks after the league found them guilty of tampering with Bucs QB Tom Brady. Or “impermissible communications” as they prefer to call it. They also were found guilty of tampering with Saints HC Sean Payton. Loose lips…

There are now four teams who each have two first-round picks – and the ammo to get a top-tier QB. They are the Detroit Lions, the Houston Texans, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks.

NFL Draft Prop Bets

It’s not just the first overall pick you can bet on, there will be a ton of props available from online sportsbooks as we get closer to the draft.

Some of the examples:

We’ll keep you updated on the best available props as the months countdown to Draft Day.
