- With odds as high as -167, Tua Tagovailoa is the odds-on favorite to be the second quarterback taken in the NFL Draft Thursday.
- PointsBet Sportsbook is offering the best odds in the market on the second QB prop, as they're boosting Tua's odds for each 100 bets they receive on the former Alabama QB.
- As of Thursday afternoon, the odds have already been boosted all the way to +140, and will keep on moving as more bettors join in.
Which team will draft Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa? Will his injury cause him to fall out of the top five, or will a team bet big on his talent?
These questions will consume the top of Thursday’s NFL draft, which will feature zero excitement in the first two picks (spoiler: Joe Burrow will go No. 1 overall; Chase Young will go No. 2), and some potential chaos thereafter.
Tua is at the center of that chaos, as a generational talent who’s coming off a serious hip injury. All of this speculation has led to a fascinating betting market — one that’s ripe for opportunity, thanks to a promotion being offered by PointsBet, our top-rated legal online sportsbook.
PointsBet has boosted Tua’s odds to be the No. 2 QB selected to +140 — and PointsBet is moving the line in your favor for every 100 bets it takes on the prop.
It opened this booster at -115 odds and the odds had already shifted to +140 as of late Thursday at 4:30 p.m. ET.
And here’s the best part: No matter what the price is when you bet it, your wager will be on the odds at close. The promotion comes with a $50 max bet and is available to both new and existing PointsBet users in Indiana and New Jersey.
So just how big of an edge are you getting by taking advantage of this prop? Here are some other prices around the market for Tua to be the No. 2 QB selected:
- FanDuel: -143
- BetMGM: -150
- DraftKings: -167
Just looking at those three books, Tua’s average odds in this market are -153. And since this is one of the most-bet markets of the whole draft, it’s fair to assume these odds are pretty sharp.
Using our betting calculators, it’s easy to find that you’re getting a significant edge by taking advantage of PointsBet’s promotion. Here’s the math:
- Prop closes at +125 odds = +16.02% edge
- Prop closes at +150 odds = +20.46% edge
- Prop closes at +175 odds = +24% edge
For some context, a 5-10% edge in a given market is usually enough for professional bettors to place a wager.
In other words, this is a true no-brainer bet.
