- Our analysts break down their favorite bets for the 2019 NFL Draft, which kicks off Thursday (8 p.m. ET on ABC).
Our staff has been busy analyzing the 2019 NFL Draft betting market in the lead up to Round 1 on Thursday. (Our resident prop prophet, Matthew Freedman, especially.) And all that work has brought us here.
From Kyler Murray’s and Dwayne Haskins’ draft positions to how many Clemson players will be selected on Day 1 and more, our crew has broken down their seven favorite draft bets.
Let’s dig in.
BlackJack Fletcher: Over 3.5 QBs Selected in Round 1 (-200)
It feels like a fait accompli that Kyler Murray is going No. 1 to Arizona. It would be surprising if the Giants didn’t take a QB somewhere in the first round as well. And some combination of teams will take a shot on the remaining two; the Raiders, Redskins, Dolphins and Bengals are all prime candidates.
Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones will go in the first round. Because if you don’t have a quarterback in this league, you have nothing.
I’d play this up to -350.
