2022 40-Yard Dash Odds

2022 NFL Combine Fastest 40-Yard Dash Time
Winning BetOdds
UNDER 4.29 Seconds-145
OVER 4.29 Seconds+105

Odds as of February 28 at [Sportsbook not available for your region]

Probably the headline event of any NFL combine is this 40-yard dash test of straight-line speed. The two main players to watch here are Memphis WR Calvin Austin and LSU DB Derek Stingley.

On top of being a dominant collegiate receiver, Austin was a member of Memphis’ track team, racing on both the 400- and 100-meter relay teams. Stingley, one of the top prospects for this year’s draft, has the best shot of anyone to lead the pack in the 40-yard dash. Though his participation in this combine event is still uncertain, the LSU CB posted a 4.30 40 time coming out of high school and has had three years to grow stronger and get faster.

If Stingley runs the 40 at the combine, the combination of him and a collection of other top speedsters should ensure an easy UNDER 4.29 seconds as the fastest 40-yard dash time this week.

Players To Watch:
CB Derek Stingley
WR Calvin Austin III
QB Malik Willis

A New 40-Yard Dash Record?

Even if Stingley and other guys with blazing speed decide to participate, it’s hard to see anyone beating Jon Ross’ 4.22-second record for this 40-yard dash event. In last year’s testing (at college pro days, due to the canceled combine) only one player (WR Anthony Schwartz) got within .05 seconds of the record, and only three players broke 4.3.

After the 2021 NFL Combine was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions, this is the first time we’ll get to see most of the main events back in a centralized environment. Below, we’ve outlined some of the top available odds for the combine over at [Sportsbook not available for your region].

Vertical Jump Combine Odds

Odds as of February 28 at [Sportsbook not available for your region]

This is another safe OVER if some of the most explosive athletes choose to participate in this test.

Michigan safety Daxton Hill has the top chance of besting this mark, considering he posted a 43.6-inch vertical out of high school in 2019. However, there are other top candidates like 40-yard contenders UTSA CB Tariq Woolen and CB Derek Stingley.

Player To Watch:
S Daxton Hill

Bench Press Odds

2022 NFL Combine Most Bench Press Reps
Winning BetOdds
UNDER 40 Reps-120
OVER 40 Reps-120

Odds as of February 28 at [Sportsbook not available for your region]

If skill positions dont do it for you, and youre more interested in the linemen in the trenches, this combine event is for you. However, this is a rare UNDER pick ahead of the 2022 NFL Combine. I dont see any one player who will top 40 reps of 225 pounds at this years combine.

Since 2015, only two players have gone over 40 reps, with defensive tackles Vita Vea and Harrison Phillips posting 41 and 42, respectively, in 2018. There are some big boys in this years NFL draft, but its hard to see a player bucking the recent trend of staying under 40 reps.

Players To Watch:

OT/OG Ikem Ekwonu

Rich Eisens 40-Yard Dash Time

2022 NFL Combine Rich Eisen’s 40 Time
Winning BetOdds
UNDER 6.03 Seconds-120
OVER 6.03 Seconds-120

Odds as of February 28 at [Sportsbook not available for your region]

And now for the main event.

NFL media personality Rich Eisen has been running the NFL combine 40-yard dash every year since 2005. The speedster in a suit consistently hovers around six seconds, only breaking the mark four times. After a personal best of 5.94 in 2016, Eisen ran just a 6.03 in 2021.

Now that he’s on the wrong side of 50, we think there might be some decline coming to Eisen’s game. The COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine hurt many people’s athleticism, and we’ll bank on adding a few ticks to Eisen’s 40 time this year, too.

How To Bet NFL Combine Odds

While some books offer bets on how individual players will do in NFL combine events or who will set the best times or rep totals in each event, the most common way to bet on the NFL draft showcase is through top scores.

Here’s an example of a 40-yard dash betting market, found on a sportsbook like [Sportsbook not available for your region]:

UNDER 4.22 Seconds+200
OVER 4.22 Seconds-200

In this case, the best 40-yard time at the combine being OVER 4.22 seconds is a heavy favorite. A $100 bet on the best 40-yard time being OVER 4.22 seconds would pay out $150 – your initial bet back and $50 in winnings.

If you were to bet $100 on the best time being UNDER 4.22 seconds and someone were to run the race faster than that, you’d win $300 – your initial bet back plus $200 in winnings. Check out Odds Shark’s Odds Calculator for more betting assistance and to calculate your winnings.
