2020 NFL Draft Odds & Prop Picks


Odds via various legal sportsbooks and current at the time of writing of each pick. Find offers and reviews for the best online books here.


Props for the Top 10 Picks: Freedman has updated his mock draft and has corresponding props for the first 10 picks, including Tua Tagovailoa’s destination, the Giants addressing their offensive line and Isaiah Simmons to the Panthers.

Exact Order of Top 3 Picks: Joe Burrow, Chase Young, Jeffrey Okudah (+230 at PointsBet). This is the sequence in half of the expert mocks Freedman has surveyed. Read more.

Second QB Drafted: Tua Tagovailoa (-400 at DraftKings). These odds give Tua an 80% implied probability of being the second QB off the board, but Freedman would put the true odds closer to 90%. Read more.

Second Offensive Player Drafted: Mekhi Becton (+750 at PointsBet) and/or Tristan Wirfs (+850 at PointsBet). They’re by far the likeliest players to be drafted as the No. 1 offensive lineman, which means even though Tua is the betting favorite, either could be the second offensive player selected. Read more.

First Running Back Drafted: Jonathan Taylor (+155 at FanDuel). Taylor looks like a real challenger to D’Andre Swift — they’re basically a coin flip, which means there’s significant value on Taylor at plus-money. Read more.

First Wide Receiver Drafted: Henry Ruggs III (+700 at BetMGM). Recent history suggests we shouldn’t discount the speedy receiver’s odds to be selected higher than anticipated. Read more.

First Tight End Drafted: Albert Okwuegbunam (+1400 at BetMGM). These odds give him a 6.7% implied odds of being the first TE off the board, but Freedman thinks the true probability is almost double. Read more.

First Offensive Lineman Drafted: Tristan Wirfs (+200 at BetMGM), Mekhi Becton (+200 at BetMGM) and Jedrick Wills (+260 at FanDuel). If you risk one unit on each player, you would break even if Wirfs or Becton are the first, or profit +0.6 units if it’s Wills. Read more.

First Safety Drafted: Xavier McKinney (-177 at DraftKings). The former Alabama safety is the first selected in the majority of first-round mocks Freedman has surveyed. Read more.

The Giants’ First Pick: OT Mekhi Becton (+300 at FanDuel), LB Isaiah Simmons (+400 at BetMGM), OT Jedrick Wills (+400 at BetMGM) and/or OT Tristan Wirfs (+400 at BetMGM). If you were to bet one unit on each player, you would profit one unit if Wirfs, Wills or Simmons are the pick, or break even if it’s Becton. Read more.

Offense vs. Defense Picks 1-5: Which side of the ball will the first five picks represent? Freedman makes his picks.

Offense vs. Defense Picks 6-10: Which side of the ball will picks 6-10 represent? Freedman makes his picks.

WR Jerry Jeudy’s Draft Position: Over 11.5 (-110 at DraftKings). The former Alabama WR hasn’t come off the board earlier than No. 12 in 75% of the expert mocks Freedman has surveyed. Read more.
