The NFL Draft is only one day away... finally! The lead up to this draft has been longer than any other one that I can recall and I think the safest bet to make would be that we are all ready for it to get started.
Speaking of bets, SportsBetting.ag recently released their extensive list of NFL Draft prop bets ahead of the first round tomorrow night. And suffice it to say, they are firm believers that Josh Rosen will be wearing a different uniform in 2019.
At this juncture, they have it at 9:1 odds that Rosen DOES NOT get traded to another team during the NFL Draft. So, they are basically saying that they expect it to happen and they expect it to happen during the draft. To go along with that, they have Kyler Murray being the #1 overall pick at a -500 (bet $5.00 to win $1.00). The Murray at -500 line does not surprise me nearly as much as the Rosen -2000/+900 line. Apparently Vegas has some inside info that truly makes them believe Rosen will be traded during the draft.
Outside of those two bets, Nick Bosa has the second best odds of being the #1 overall pick at +350 (bet $100 to win $350).
If Murray or any other player present at the draft gets picked first, will they cry prior to shaking hands/hugging NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell? You would have to bet $400 to win $100 if you don’t think so.
A player a lot of Cardinals fans have talked about is Kyler Murray’s Okalahoma wide receiver, Marquise Brown. Vegas does not believe he will be selected at number 19 or earlier, placing the odds at +165 if you think he will. They actually have D.K. Metcalf as the first receiver being picked with -125 odds.
Lastly, they are firm believers that there will be over 3.5 quarterbacks selected on Thursday, placing the odds at a -450.
Thanks to Scott Cooley of Cool Media PR for sending over the odds. If you are curious about any other of their prop bets, feel free to visit the sportsbetting.ag website.
