The 2022 NFL Draft is right around the corner, and one of the most-common markets bettors can hit is player position over/unders.
The name of the game’s pretty simple: If a prospect’s draft position total is 4.5, for example, under bettors need the player to be selected 1-4. Over bettors are rooting for the player to still be on the board at No. 5.
Stocks have fluctuated like crazy throughout the past few months as the industry reacted to the NFL combine and pro days. Then, of course, there’s always plenty of additional Draft buzz on top of that.
Kyle Hamilton Draft Position
The Notre Dame product will make a defensive coordinator happy with his versatility and play-making skills. He’ll likely be picked somewhere in the first round, but for now, Hamilton is trending down.
BetMGM has taken a whopping 73% of bets on Hamilton’s over, which is still priced at a juicy -150.
The 88% of money on Hamilton’s over is also the second-most bet side in the draft position total market at the shop.
Evan Neal Draft Position
Neal was one of the biggest risers over the winter, moving from +2500 to +175 for No. 1 pick.
However, he’s another prospect inching back, with 85% of the tickets and 93% of the handle on the over — which is off a full three spots from his opening number.
Sauce Gardner Draft Position
The hype surrounding Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner is legit as proven by a three-year career at Cincinnati in which he didn’t allow a single touchdown pass.
He’s the overwhelming chalk for first corner off the board. At BetMGM, his under’s rung in the third-most tickets throughout the draft betting cycle.
Gardner’s also been a hot commodity at Caesars Sportsbook, where he’s been bet off his opener of 8.5 to 5.5.
“It’s rumored that the Texans are in the market for a cornerback, and he and [Derek] Stingley Jr. are getting a lot of action,” Caesars’ Adam Pullen, the assistant director of trading said.
“If they’re going corner, it’s obviously one of those two, and Gardner is the big favorite among those two. That’s what the information right now says, so the odds have been adjusted accordingly.”
Kayvon Thibodeaux Draft Position
Thibodeaux’s an intriguing case study. He’s been mocked to as low as No. 2, but has trickled back at certain points this spring.
He’s responsible for both the largest ticket and handle counts at BetMGM, with 74% and 73% on the under, respectively.
