How Do NFL Draft Betting Odds Work
NFL Draft Betting odds work in a similar way to that you’ll be accustomed to when betting on any sport. You will either be betting on two possible outcomes such as over or under a certain Draft Pick, or you’ll be betting a single outcome such as First Overall Pick, or First Running-Back to be drafted.
As normal with any type of prop bet the possible outcomes will be listed, along with the odds for that outcome. Take the First Overall Pick, for example, Trevor Lawrence currently has odds of -6000 to be the first name off the board, which means a $100 bet would only return $1.67 in profit.
Many other markets such as Player Positions will offer better odds than this year’s First Overall, such as Kyle Pitts O/U 5.5, either side of the line will pay close to -110 meaning a $110 bet would return $100 in profit.
Be sure to shop around, as the odds and also the lines on some player positions can vary considerably from sportsbook to sportsbook.
