NFL Draft Odds and Endings

  • More bets have been placed on Oregon’s Thibodeaux draft position than on any individual Caesars Sportsbook player. Thibodeaux’s over/under on his draft position is 4.5 with a price of -175 on the under. The most on Thibodeaux’s draft position is leading for tickets, but the minus drew the second most money of all players.

  • The Ohio State Wide Sub Receiver Garrett Wilson (9.5) is the least popular in terms of number of bets and amount wagered.

  • Sportsbook WynnBET reported taking a $500 bet on the Tennessee Titans to select the quarterback Kenny Pickett at 75 to 1 from a customer in New Jersey. If Pickett lands with the Titans, owns the 26th pick, the bettor would net $37,000.

  • 94% of the money bet on BetMGM over/unders on the number of QBs taken in the first round (3.5) is on the under. The minus is -300.
