Let’s take a (short) break from the ice, diamond and hardwood to talk the topic du jour in the sports world on Thursday: Round 1 of the NFL draft.

Will we see trades? Will we see a top player fall? Will the Browns make any smart picks? Who knows? What we do know is it is going to be interesting and fun, and since we’re all watching, we might as well have a little action on it. With that in mind, I have come up with a parlay of three draft prop bets that pays nearly 5-1. Let’s get it.

All odds as of Wednesday evening.

O/U 5.5 QBs Taken in Round 1

The number here is five. Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson are all going in the first round. I do not believe there will be a team so in love with Mason Rudolph to pay the king’s ransom required to trade up in the first round. With all the QBs going in the top 15 picks or so, there will be a glut of quality players at other positions who will go at the end of Round 1.

THE PICK: UNDER 5.5 -200
