The NFL Draft is 62 days away and set to take place in the degenerate capital of the world, Las Vegas.

Sportsbooks typically offer plenty of options to bet on for the NFL Draft as we get closer to the day. But for now, the only thing to bet on is No. 1 overall pick.

Odds for who the Jacksonville Jaguars will take with the No. 1 overall selection have bounced around over the last couple of months. The combine and pro days tend to solidify things a bit, so now is the time to take advantage of the variance.

Michigan edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson opened as the favorite to be the first pick at +100 on BetMGM. He remains the favorite at +165 but only by a slim margin. Hutchinson is getting 15.7% of the tickets and 13.3% of the money, according to BetMGM.

The fastest riser is Alabama offensive lineman Evan Neal. He opened with +2500 odds on BetMGM and is currently +175. He’s also the biggest liability for BetMGM, getting 33.2% of the tickets and 43.2% of the handle.

Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux has the third-highest odds to be the No. 1 overall pick and is also the third-biggest liability for BetMGM. Thibodeaux opened at +450 and his odds have risen to +350. He’s getting 11.8% of the public and 13.7% of the total money.

The longshot some people are taking a flyer on is Mississippi State offensive lineman Charles Cross. He opened at 100-1 to be the first pick and is now at 30-1. He’s become the second-biggest liability for BetMGM with 5.8% of the tickets and 3.6% of the handle.
