Remember, never bet what you don’t have, but you will definitely want to take advantage of some of these fun wagers.

First Overall Pick, Odds and Predictions

The most popular NFL Draft prediction is who will be selected first overall.

The Arizona Cardinals currently have that pick, so first it will depend on if they trade back with another team, and then it will depend on whether they are happy with the quarterback they chose in the first round of last season’s draft, Josh Rosen.

Though some argue that Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa is the best all-around athlete in this draft class, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has plenty of heads turning and currently leads the pack as the odds on favorite to be selected first.

  • Kyler Murray                       -715
  • Nick Bosa                            +500
  • Quinnen Williams             +1400
  • Dwayne Haskins               +2500
  • Josh Allen                         +3300
  • Ed Oliver                           +4000
  • Drew Lock                         +5000
  • Devin White                      +10000
  • Rashan Gary                     +10000
  • Montez Sweat                   +10000
  • Jawaan Taylor                  +10000
  • T.J. Hockenson                 +15000
  • D.K.Metcalf                       +15000
  • Greedy Williams                +15000
  • Joshua Jacobs                  +20000

First QB, Odds and Predictions

Not a whole lot of debate on this one – Murray is by far the favorite here, with Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins coming in a distant second place.

Chances are the top four players on this list will be selected by the end of the first round given how critical (and rare) it is for every NFL team to have a top-level athlete under center.

  • Kyler Murray                     -1250
  • Dwayne Haskins               +700
  • Drew Lock                         +1000
  • Daniel Jones                     +2500
  • Will Grier                           +10000
  • Ryan Finley                       +25000
  • Tyree Jackson                  +25000
  • Brett Rypien                      +25000
  • Easton Stick                      +25000
  • Jarrett Stidham                 +25000

First Running Back Drafted, Odds and Predictions

The overwhelming favorite here is Alabama’s Josh Jacobs, who in three seasons had 299 touches for 2,062 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Iowa State’s David Montgomery is the runner up here despite his better numbers.

In three seasons, Montgomery had 695 touches for 3,507 yards and 26 touchdowns.

  • Joshua Jacobs                  -500
  • David Montgomery            +500
  • Miles Sanders                   +700
  • Devin Singletary                +1600
  • Darrell Henderson             +2000
  • Damien Harris                   +2500
  • Justice Hill                         +5000
  • Bryce Love                        +8000
  • Devine Ozigbo                  +8000
  • Rodney Anderson             +10000
  • Ryquell Armstead             +10000
  • Elijah Holyfield                  +10000
  • Benny Snell Jr                  +10000
  • Trayveon Williams            +10000
  • Alex Barnes                      +15000
  • Karan Higdon                    +15000
  • Alexander Mattison           +15000
  • Dexter Williams                 +15000

First Wide Receiver, Odds and Predictions

If you saw Ole Miss’ D.K. Metcalf at the NFL Scouting Combine, you know he’s an incredibly sculpted and speedy athlete with good hands and the height (6-foot-4) and size (225-pounds) to come down with the catch.

Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown had two 1000+ receiving yards seasons and caught for 17 touchdowns, but his smaller size (5-foot-10, 168-pounds) puts him second on the list.

  • D.K.Metcalf                                   -177
  • Marquise Brown                            +350
  • A.J.Brown                                      +600
  • Hakeem Butler                              +800
  • N’Keal Harry                                 +900
  • Kelvin Harmon                              +1600
  • Deebo Samuel                              +2500
  • Parris Campbell                            +2800
  • Riley Ridley                                   +4000
  • Andy Isabella                                +6600
  • JJ Arcega-Whiteside                     +8000
  • Terry McLaurin                              +10000
  • Miles Boykin                                  +15000
  • Emanuel Hall                                +15000
  • DaMarkus Lodge                          +15000

First O-Line, Odds and Predictions

Florida’s Jawaan Taylor is a 6-foot-5, 328-pound giant who has even had a pass defended and an interception in his three SEC seasons.

Jonah Williams is the same height but about twenty pounds lighter than Taylor.

  • Jawaan Taylor                              -200
  • Jonah Williams                              +250
  • Andre Dillard                                 +500
  • Cody Ford                                     +1100
  • Garrett Bradbury                           +1600
  • Dalton Risner                                +2500
  • Greg Little                                     +4000
  • Christian Lindström                       +6600
  • Yodny Cajuste                              +8000
  • Erik McCoy                                   +8000
  • David Edwards                              +10000

First DB, Odds and Predictions

What NFL team wouldn’t want a cornerback with a name like LSU’s Greedy Williams, along with his 8 interceptions in two seasons along with 9 passes defended.

Washington’s Murphy Byron had 6 interceptions in two seasons along with a sack and two forced fumbles.

  • Greedy Williams                            +120
  • Murphy Byron                               +250
  • Deandre Baker                              +350
  • Nasir Adderley                              +1800
  • Chauncey Gardner-Johnson        +1800
  • Johnathan Abram                         +1800
  • Justin Layne                                  +2500
  • Amani Oruwariye                          +2800
  • Rock Ya-Sin                                  +2800
  • Juan Thornhill                               +2800
  • Sean Bunting                                +3300
  • Trayvon Mullen                             +3300
  • Taylor Rapp                                  +3300
  • Deionte Thompson                       +5000
  • Julian Love                                    +10000
  • Joejuan Williams                           +10000

Position of Mr. Irrelevant, Odds and Predictions

The title of ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ is given to whichever player is selected last in the NFL Draft.

The first person to have ever received that title was wide receiver Kelvin Kirk, who in 1976 was pick number 487.

Kirk never made it in the NFL, but he went on to have a career in the Canadian Football League from 1977-83.

  • Offense                                         -110
  • Defenses                                       +100
  • Special Teams                              +1400

First Tight End, Odds and Predictions

Iowa’s T.J. Hockenson is considered the best tight end in this draft class after two seasons of college ball where he caught 73 passes for 1,084 yards and 9 touchdowns.

Hockenson’s teammate at Iowa, Noah Fant, had almost the same number of catches and yards (78 catches for 1,083) as Hockenson, but had 19 total touchdowns and an entire extra season in which to do it.

  • T.J.Hockenson                              -230
  • Noah Fant                                     +150
  • Irv Smith Jr.                                   +2000
  • Jace Sternberger                          +6600
  • Kahale Warring                             +10000
  • Dawson Knox                                +15000
  • Foster Moreau                              +15000
  • Isaac Nauta                                   +20000
  • Kaden Smith                                 +20000

Total Running Backs Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

Running backs, though valuable to a team, are rarely taken in the first round, unless it’s an exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime athlete like Saquon Barkley was last year.

  • Over 0.5                                        -200
  • Under 0.5                                      +150

Total QBs Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

In a league desperate for effective offenses that can score touchdowns, college quarterbacks with huge, accurate arms are always deserving of first round consideration.

  • Over 3.5                                        -230
  • Under 3.5                                      +165

Total Defensive players Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

The 2019 NFL Draft class has a lot of defensive talent, and quite a few are predicted to go in the top ten of the first round, but just how many total out of thirty-two possible will there be?

  • Over 17.5                                      -110
  • Under 17.5                                    -121

Total Wide Receivers Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

Chances are Metcalf will go in the first round, but are there at least two more college receivers that are certain to get selected in the first thirty-two?

  • Over 2.5                                        -134
  • Under 2.5                                      +100

First Linebacker Drafted, Odds and Predictions

In three seasons, LSU’s Devin White had 286 tackles (28.5 for loss), 8.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries, 9 passes defended and an interception.

Michigan’s Devin Bush had 10.0 sacks total in his last two seasons.

  • Devin White                                  -590
  • Devin Bush                                   +250
  • Mack Wilson                                 +4000
  • Blake Cashman                            +8000
  • Joseph Vosean                             +15000
  • Joe Giles-Harris                            +25000

Total Tight Ends Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

Tight ends who can catch and block (ala the recently retired Rob Gronkowski) are highly coveted in the NFL these days, but are there more than two of them worthy of a first round pick?

  • Over 2.5                                        +270
  • Under 2.5                                      -400

Total Offensive Linemen Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

Every team is looking for giant, fleet-footed brutes who can create holes and protect the quarterback, and not necessarily in that order.

  • Over 5.5                                        -167
  • Under 5.5                                      +125

Total Offensive Players Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

It’s a defensive-heavy draft class but an offensive-centric NFL, so it’s anybody’s guess how this one will end up.

  • Over 14.5                                      -121
  • Under 14.5                                    -110

Total Defensive Linemen Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

There are quite a few edge rushers and quarterback hunters in this draft, so it’s very likely that more than  ten of them will go in the first round.

  • Over 10.5                                      -115
  • Under 10.5                                    -115

Total Defensive Backs Drafted 1st Round, Odds and Predictions

There’s a big need for cornerbacks and safeties in the NFL, speedy guys who can tackle and come down with the ball once in awhile, but are there over five of them worth a first round selection?

  • Over 5.5                                        +200
  • Under 5.5                                      -278

First Defensive Lineman drafted, Odds and Predictions

Bosa may be listed as the second favorite overall pick, but when it comes to defensive linemen, he is by far the best in this class.

The only doubts that surround Bosa have to do with him missing the entire 2018 season of football after his core muscle surgery.

  • Nick Bosa                                      -200
  • Quinnen Williams                          +300
  • Josh Allen                                     +500
  • Ed Oliver                                       +1600
  • Montez Sweat                               +4000
  • Brian Burns                                   +5000
