2020 NFL Draft Odds

2020 NFL Draft Odds

Like the rest of the sporting world, the status of the 2020 NFL Draft has been hanging in the balance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On April 6, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell informed teams in a memo that club facilities will remain closed indefinitely and the league will conduct a “fully virtual” draft, with team personnel separately located in their homes.

NFL Draft Gets Scaled Down

In mid-March, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the draft – set for April 23-25 – would go on as planned in Las Vegas but without fans. The league stated it was “exploring innovative options” for how to conduct the draft.

Those plans are no longer in place, as teams are likely now to announce their selections virtually. The concept makes sense considering the NBA, NHL and MLB have suspended their seasons due to the outbreak, but the luster of the draft will be significantly decreased due to the stripped-down atmosphere.

The good news for football fans is the draft is still full steam ahead, and that means betting props have hit the board for the occasion. Online sportsbook BetOnline has released a litany of odds for the 2020 NFL Draft, including the first player drafted at each position, specific rounds for when players will be taken, and OVER/UNDERs on draft position.

Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow going to the Cincinnati Bengals looks to be a lock, so that’s why there aren’t any prop specials on who will go at No. 1. The last time the shop was offering odds on the first player selected was in mid-December, when Burrow was the heavy -225 favorite.

Where Will Tua Go?

One of the more interesting soon-to-be NFL rookies in the draft is Tua Tagovailoa. The former Alabama QB suffered a hip injury in the 2019 regular season and was forced to miss the remainder of the campaign as a result. Tagovailoa is reportedly healing more quickly than expected, and the injury is not projected to hinder his status as a projected franchise quarterback.

The Miami Dolphins, who possess the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, are the team that’s been tied the closest to the Hawaiian. Tagovailoa is the overwhelming -500 favorite to be the second QB off the board, and the likeliest outcome on his draft position is to go at No. 3 (+175 odds).

The Detroit Lions own the No. 3 pick but could look to trade down and acquire more picks if a quarterback-needy team wants to leapfrog the Dolphins and pick him. Regardless, I like the +200 number for Tua to go at No. 5. I simply can’t see the ‘Fins passing on him at this point.

TV-Only Prop Specials Hit the Board

Due to the unique format for this year’s draft, the sportsbook has released some props appropriate for the occasion. For example, the shop is offering odds on the total number of dogs and cats to be shown on TV during the first round. The O/U for dogs is set at 3.5, while the number for cats is 0.5.

Technical snafus happen to all of us at times, and this year’s crop of rookies could be no different. The odds of a draftee experiencing technical difficulties are heavily favored at -500. We’ve never seen a draft conducted in this manner before, so it seems like a given for issues to occur on the broadcast.

Imagine witnessing a new draftee getting selected and immediately putting on the wrong hat, a faux pas that would live in internet infamy, and you can bet on that happening. The chances of a rookie choosing the wrong lid to wear after hearing his name get called are at +300, with the NO option coming back in minus money at -500.

Who do you think the No. 1 overall pick will thank first after getting drafted? His mother is the +125 favorite, followed by his father (+250), girlfriend (+300), friend (+700) and sibling (+700).

The book is even dealing alcohol-related props. The odds of any draftee being shown drinking a beer on live TV are +250, with the odds of a draftee popping champagne at +500.

Take a look at the book’s full list of draft props. Where do you think the value is? Have your say in the comment section. For more football betting information, check out our NFL page.

How to Read NFL Draft Odds

When you check out any of the top online sportsbooks, you’ll see prop odds listed like so:

Tua Tagovailoa -150

Joe Burrow +200

Justin Herbert +600

Chase Young +750

Jake Fromm +800

In this scenario, Tua is the favorite to go first overall. You can tell this by the minus sign (-). The rest are considered underdogs. You can see this because of the plus sign (+). If there is no clear fave, then the player with the lowest odds would be it. For instance, if Tua was at +150 instead of -150, he’d still be the fave since his odds are the smallest.

Let’s say you think that Joe Burrow is going to put on a clinic this year, and you bet $100 on him. You’d get a payout of $300 – your original $100 comes back along with your winnings of $200. Our Odds Calculator will show you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount bet.

What is a Football Prop Bet?

When you bet on NFL draft odds, you’re making a prop bet. This is a bet on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain player or team milestones that may not necessary correlate to the outcome of a particular football game. You can make this kind of bet as soon as draft odds are announced. If you see odds you like, we suggest jumping on them quickly as the lines will move as the college football season progresses and players succumb to injury or their performance starts to lag.
