The 2020 NFL Draft is fast approaching, set to take place “virtually” starting on Thursday, April 23 through Saturday, April 25, and the associated prop bets that are beginning to become available are thoroughly tempting.

We have already gone over some of the major draft-related prop bets available in a previous article called “Betting on the NFL Draft in New Jersey”, and there you can find odds for bets like the first overall pick, first quarterback drafted and many other typical wagers.

Here, we focus on prop bets related to college football’s Power Five conferences – the ACC, Big 10, Big 12, PAC-12 and SEC – specifically the over/under of how many athletes from each conference will be selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Check out also our “First Round NFL Mock Draft“.

Which of the Power Five Conferences Was best in 2019?

This, of course, is an ongoing argument that is impossible to completely solve, but it’s fun to chime in on the debate and at any given moment there are multiple ways to rank them.

One way is by their overall non-conference win percentage after the season is finished.

Here we list the Power Five in best to worst order according to non-conference win percentage (NCWP):

  1. SEC – NCWP of 75.4%
  2. Big 10 – NCWP of 74.5%
  3. Big 12 – NCWP of 66.7%
  4. PAC-12 – NCWP of 65.1%
  5. ACC – NCWP of 60.0%

Total Power Five Conference Players Selected in the First Round of the Draft

There are plenty of over/under prop bets now available to predict how many players from each of the Power Five conferences will get chosen in the first round.

Below we go over those predictions and odds, including how many athletes from each conference were selected in last year’s draft.

At the end, we also include the predictions and odds of the number of players from last year’s College Champions, the LSU Tigers, who are chosen in the first round.

The odds are provided by 888Sport NJ. Good luck!

What Are the Power Five Conferences?

The highest level of collegiate football in North America is the NCAA Division I, and in that division is what’s called the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), which used to be known as Division I-A and includes the top-level college football teams in the U.S.

Within the FBS are five major conferences, also known as the Power Five conferences, a term whose origin is unknown (except that it definitely does not come from the NCAA) which has been in use since 2006.

Those five conferences are:

  1. Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
  2. Big Ten Conference (Big 10)
  3. Big 12 Conference (Big 12)
  4. Pacific Coast Conference (PAC-12)
  5. Southeastern Conference (SEC)
