The rollercoaster of NFL Draft betting odds has taken another turn, as Will Levis has become the favorite to go second in the draft, according to Caesars.
As of yesterday, Levis was positioned behind both C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young in the second slot at a whopping +2000, but he is down to +180 as of Tuesday, April 18.
As you would expect, odds for the first and second pick are aligned, and the shifting of one leads to the shifting of another. With Young now a -1200 to go first in the draft, the trickle down effect would naturally be for Stroud to become a big favorite to go second. However, that is evidently not the case, and something happened to push Levis from +2000 all the way down to being favored at +180.
Behind Stroud is Tyree Wilson (+350), Will Anderson Jr. (+400), Young (+700) and Anthony Richardson (+1400).
The Panthers currently hold the first pick, and in that market Stroud is the second-favorite at +650, followed by Richardson (+2000) and Levis (+3500). Is there good reason to believe the Texans, who hold the second pick, will go with Levis?
That’s what the betting markets seem to indicate, though his implied probability of 35.7% is only marginally ahead of Stroud at 31.3%.
Interestingly, the Arizona Cardinals, who hold the third pick, could possibly take a quarterback despite having Kyler Murray. Stroud and Richardson are co-favorites to go third at +225, while Anderson Jr. is +300.
The first round of the NFL Draft will take place on April 27.
