NFL Draft Betting Odds & Props: Where Will Biggest Names Land in 2021?

When it comes to 2021 NFL Draft prop bets, sportsbooks are united in projecting Clemson Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence to be the first player taken off the board in NFL draft odds.

Lawrence is the extremely heavy odds-on -10000 favorite at BetOnline to be selected first overall in the NFL draft, followed by Zach Wilson (+1200), Justin Fields (+2000), and Penei Sewell (+2500) as the other candidates to go No. 1 on April 29.

Things can change incredibly quickly in football – just look at 2020 No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow as proof of that. Burrow, who was considered a fifth- to seventh-rounder prior to his draft year, seemingly came out of nowhere to dominate the college football world in 2020.

Burrow flourished in his final year at Louisiana State, leading the Tigers to an undefeated regular season, an SEC title and a national championship. He won the Heisman Trophy by the largest margin in the history of the award and broke several NCAA FBS records, including most touchdown passes (60) and highest passer rating (202.0).

QB-Needy Jaguars Set to Take Lawrence

Lawrence’s resume is almost as impressive as his physical talent. Simply put, the 20-year-old has “franchise quarterback” written all over him, and NFL teams are chomping at the bit to take him in this year’s draft.

Lawrence has been considered one of the nation’s top collegiate signal-callers since the first half of his freshman season in 2018 when he took over for Kelly Bryant and led the Tigers to a national championship.

Clemson failed to replicate that success in the next two years under Lawrence, but it doesn’t matter. It would be a major surprise if the Jacksonville Jaguars, who own the first overall pick in the 2021 draft, don’t select Lawrence.

With Lawrence waiting, a litany of cap space available and ex-Ohio State and Florida head coach Urban Meyer in town, the future looks bright in North Florida. The chances of the Jags trading down in the draft or picking any other player are slim to none, and the odds indicate that.

The New York Jets, who hold the No. 2 pick, were originally viewed as a wild-card team in the draft due to their QB situation. After the Jets traded Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers on April 5, the mystery surrounding the No. 2 selection has been erased.

The original question surrounding the Jets was whether they would hang on to Darnold and trade the pick to a QB-needy team for draft capital. With New York shipping Darnold to Carolina for a trio of selections in next year’s draft, the Jets are officially in the market for a new QB.

Football pundits widely view former BYU QB Zach Wilson as the likeliest candidate to go to the Jets, and oddsmakers clearly agree. Wilson’s -5000 price to go to the Big Apple makes this prop look like a lock, but stranger things have happened in the NFL draft.

It becomes more of a toss-up at No. 3. The San Francisco 49ers, who own that pick, are also heavily rumored to be picking a quarterback in the draft. Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the 49ers roster, but the 29-year-old’s future with the franchise looks incredibly murky right now. 

A day after the Darnold trade, Adam Schefter said on ESPN Radio that he’d “be shocked” if former Alabama QB Mac Jones wasn’t the pick at No. 3 for the 49ers. 

Schefter further detailed what he believes will be San Francisco’s plans in keeping Garoppolo and drafting Jones. 

”No,” Schefter said about a Garoppolo trade. ”Not right now. ... I believe that in the end, they will pick Mac Jones at 3. That’ll be the pick. And they will keep Jimmy Garoppolo this year. ... They believe they have a Super Bowl-caliber roster, a playoff-caliber roster, and they want to draft a quarterback and have him sit on the bench, learn, get acclimated, even though some people say that Mac Jones is ready to play right away.

”Then after the season, you move on from Jimmy.”

If you believe Schefter, Jones’ -200 price to go third overall is not terrible considering the odds on the Nos. 1 and 2 picks. 

2021 NFL Draft QB, RB, WR & TE Props

If you’re looking for more NFL draft props outside of odds to go at Nos. 1, 2 and 3, online sportsbook Bovada has you covered.

The shop has released odds on how many quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends will be taken in the first round. The 2021 draft is known as QB-heavy, and it appears that oddsmakers agree with the draft pundits.

How Many Quarterbacks Will Go in Round 1?

How many quarterbacks will be drafted in the first round?
OptionOdds
OVER 4.5-600
UNDER 4.5+350

Odds as of April 29 at Bovada

The OVER/UNDER for QBs getting selected in the first round has been set at 4.5, but the juice on the OVER is an astronomical -600. It would be a major surprise to see the UNDER hit in this prop, but if you think there won’t be more than four signal-callers going on the first day, you can get it at +350 odds.

Last year, Burrow, Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert went off the board in the first six picks, and it seemed for the next little while that no other signal-callers would go until Day 2. That is until the Green Bay Packers shocked the NFL world by trading up with the Houston Texans to pick Utah State QB Jordan Love at No. 26.

I don’t expect another shocker like that deal to happen this year, but it’s better to expect the unexpected in the NFL.

Odds as of April 29 at Bovada

Running backs are seen by many NFL general managers as an interchangable lot, so it’s rare to see a high number of running backs get selected in the first round. 

In the 2020 draft, only one RB was taken on the first day: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who was picked by the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 32. According to the book’s O/U of 1.5, bettors would be wise to expect to see more than one RB go early this time around.

As for wide receivers, the 2020 draft was a historic one for wideouts. Thirty-seven wide receivers were taken, with six going in the first round. That first-round number was tied with offensive tackles and linebackers for most players in a position group taken in the first.

The O/U on WRs projected to go in Round 1 has been tabbed at 4.5. The free-agent market for wide receivers hasn’t been as busy as expected, and another stacked WR draft class could be the reason why.

Since GMs appear to be saving their money from splashing on big-name WRs, I have a feeling more than four wideouts will be gone in the first round.

Outside of names like George Kittle, Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski, the tight-end position is not exactly full of household names in the NFL.

The O/U on the number of tight ends getting selected in the first round sits at 1.5, with the juice on the UNDER at -500. It’s hard to argue with those odds, so I’d advise against a wager on the OVER here given the immediate needs teams have in other areas of the field.
