Super Bowl 54 is in the books and so is the 2019-20 NFL season which means the league will turn its attention to their next largest event – the NFL Draft.

This year’s event won't take place from Las Vegas, Nevada due to the situation surrounding the 'coronavirus' but the festivities are still expected to continue on Thursday, Apr. 23 and run through Saturday, Apr. 25. The NFL Draft has seven rounds and all 32 clubs will participate in the event, drafting players from college football schools.

The NFL Draft has become a major event and NFL Draft Odds has become a major betting market. The first round, which takes place on Thursday, is offering up numerous opportunities where bettors can wager on draft odds for the top college football prospects.

NFL Draft 1st Pick Odds
LSU Quarterback Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow, QB, LSU: -3500 Bet Now at FanDuel
Chase Young, DE, Ohio State: +1400
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama: +1900
Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia: +2700
Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon: +3600
Jacob Eason, QB, Washington: +4300
Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia: +4300
Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Georgia: +4300
CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma: +6500
Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama: +6500


How to read the Odds:
Bet $3500 on Joe Burrow to win $100
Bet $100 on Chase Young to win $1400

Top Pick Draft Odds Analysis

Joe Burrow comes off a brilliant Heisman Trophy-winning run in leading LSU to an unbeaten season capped by a 42-25 win in the National Championship and is the presumptive No. 1 overall pick.

The Athens (OH) High School product is expected to go first to the Bengals in a move considered such a lock that there’s simply no value in riding the development that it would cost you a $99,000 to win $4,500.

The numbers make Burrow far too “chalky” a choice to realistically back, which means most will likely sit on the sidelines betting-wise. Burrow throwing an orange and black cap and holding up a Cincinnati jersey after hearing Roger Goodell call his name first seems like a lock.

NFL Draft 2nd Pick Odds

Chase Young, DE, Ohio State: -480 Bet Now at FanDuel
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama: +340 Bet Now at FanDuel
Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Georgia: +1700
Jedrick Willis, Jr., OT, Alabama: +2000
Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia: +10000
Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon: +10000

How to read the Odds:
Bet $480 on Chase Young to win $100
Bet $100 on Tua Tagovailoa to win $340

Second Pick Analysis

Ohio State’s Chase Young, the consensus top defensive prospect in this draft, is a possibility as well but probably less of an option since Cincy is intent on moving on from long-time starter Andy Dalton. Young, who broke OSU’s single-season record with 16.5 sacks en route to winning multiple awards in becoming 2019’s most decorated defender, should be the No. 2 pick since Washington already has a young quarterback on board to groom in Dwayne Haskins.

It’s worth laying the juice here because I simply don’t see anyone being selected second ahead of Young unless the ‘Skins trade out of the No. 2 spot because someone wants the other remaining top quarterback available. That means there’s some value with Tagovailoa at both No. 1 and No. 2. Below are the and the odds for the top prospects most likely to be taken with the NFL Draft’s top two selections.

Tua Tagovailoa NFL Draft Odds

Where will Tua go? The most intriguing pick this year is which Team will draft Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama. Here are the current Tua odds:
Alabama Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa

Dolphins: -150 Bet Now at FanDuel
Chargers: +195 Bet Now at FanDuel
Redskins: +340
Raiders: +1500
Lions: +1600 Bet Now at FanDuel
Panthers: +1900
Jaguars: +2000
Bengals: +2100
Buccaneers: +4800

NFL Draft Props - Tua Tagovailoa

Tagovailoa Draft Position: Over 2.5 -300, Under +220
Tagovailoa Going No. 1 +1900 (Bet $100 to win $1900)
Tagovailoa Going No. 2 +210 (Bet $100 to win $210)
Tagovailoa Going No. 3 -110 (Bet $110 to win $100)

Tua Tagovailoa Draft Pick Analysis

It remains to be seen whether media reports are reliable enough to get us all intel on how Tagovailoa fares in individual workouts, but the possibility exists that we won’t get that information. To properly wager on Tagovailoa, who could absolutely be the No. 2 pick if he demonstrates the ability that made him college football’s top prospect entering the 2019 season.

There aren’t many quarterbacks out there that are both mobile and accurate, things Tagovailoa does at an extremely high level. Barring an injury-relate setback, I can’t imagine he’ll be available after the No. 3 pick is made. Young, arguably the best player in the draft, makes it impossible to wager that Tagovailoa will go second since he’s such a great fit for Washington, but Detroit could take the Alabama product or trade down to No. 5 or 6 with Miami, L.A. or someone else, making him a very likely choice with the third selection.

Top Skill Position Players

While quarterbacks usually steal all the buzz in the NFL Draft, there are plenty of other skilled players available and bettors can wager on those markets as well.

NFL Draft Betting Odds on who will be the first running back, wide receiver and tight end selected are available and there is plenty of value on the board. Georgia RB D'Andre Swift

NFL Draft Odds
First Running Back Taken
Best Bet: D'Andre Swift is first RB selected (-120)

Georgia’s D’Andre Swift and Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor will each have a chance to be starters next season and could both be first-round picks. Swift, who gets the edge here as to who goes highest due to being a better pass-catching threat, may not end up being as special as Taylor. The former Badgers star is the reigning two-time Doak Walker Award winner, but in the rightfully cynical world of NFL talent evaluation, the 6,174 yards he gained on the ground over the last three years sounds like a ton of mileage.

Taylor did more than triple the damage as a receiver as a junior than he did in his first two years, so he’s capable of getting the job done there, but Swift is indeed the superior receiving option of the backfield. The ‘Dawgs standout got fewer than half the carries over the last three years and ran a 4.49 to Taylor’s faster 4.41, so he’s right in the mix at the top despite the less accomplished college career. I believe Swift will go first but Taylor may end up being amazing. This will be a fit pick either way, but I think Swift ends up hearing his name called first.

NFL Draft Odds - First Wide Receiver Taken
Best Bet: CeeDee Lamb is first WR selected (+120)

There are multiple fantastic receivers in this draft who should make an immediate impact. The 49ers’ Deebo Samuel and Titans’ A.J. Brown helped their teams go deep into the playoffs, but this year’s class features to boast guys capable of immediately emerging as No. 1 options. Baltimore’s Marquise Brown was the first wideout taken last April with the 25th selection and also flourished when healthy, but there should be at least three players taken before the spot “Hollywood” was chosen in ‘19.

Alabama star Jerry Jeudy and fellow burner Henry Ruggs III are going to go top 20. Jeudy is brilliant and Ruggs ran a 4.27, the fastest time at the combine. LSU’s Justin Jefferson was a major factor in earning a championship there are a number of others who will become instant contributors like Colorado’s Laviska Shenault, Clemson’s Tee Higgins, Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk, Baylor’s Denzel Mims and Penn State’s KJ Hamler.

While those guys will be tremendous, Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb looks like the best of the crop. After putting on a ridiculous show at the combine and helping both Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts put up eye-popping numbers, there are few doubts that the Sooners star will emerge as a terrific playmaker at the pro level. I believe he’ll beat out the ‘Bama boys in becoming the first receiver taken.

Top Defensive Players and Kickers

While the guys who score all the touchdowns usually receive most of the attention in the NFL Draft, bettors shouldn't forget the key defensive players or the individuals known for their game-winning kicks.

NFL Draft Betting Odds are also available on which Safety, Linebacker and Kicker will be selected in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.

The Cincinnati Bengals went 2-14 in the 2019 regular season and have earned the top spot in the upcoming draft while the Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl 54, which means they'll have the last selection in the first round.

The Miami Dolphins have three first round picks, acquiring two from selections via trades from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans.

The Las Vegas Raiders have two first picks, acquiring a selection via trade from the Chicago Bears.

The Jacksonville Jaguars also have two first round selections, their own pick and an additional selection from the Los Angeles Rams.

The Four teams that don't have first round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft are:

Chicago Bears
Houston Texans
Los Angeles Rams
Pittsburgh Steelers

    Betting On Virtual Motorsports Betting On Virtual Motorsports Virtual motorsport races are drawing a lot of attention from sportsbooks and their players. For those in the sports betting world, the cancellation of major sports has left us with few wagering options. But while fans of basketball, baseball, or hockey are patiently waiting to see their favorite players return to action, motor racing bettors don't have to wait at all. Competitive motor racing barely missed a beat when COVID-19 shut down sports worldwide, thanks to the realism of virtual racing simulators. These programs are used regularly by drivers to keep their skills sharp without the high cost of real track practice. Therefore, many of the top racers in the world entered eSports tournaments just days after real-world events were canceled. The first of these events were held in March and became so popular that sportsbooks began to take notice and offer odds. This is an excellent opportunity for any bookmaker to use the momentum of this sport to fill the gaps left in the absence of most leagues. The success of these events just goes to show how far the realism of simulation racing has come in the eSports era. With professionals now involved, along with the sanctioning bodies of F1, NASCAR & IndyCar, sim racing has been put into the spotlight. Make no mistake; the age of competitive virtual motorsports is upon us. With that in mind, let's explore the big three leagues going on right now that you can bet on. eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series The NASCAR season was put on hiatus after just four races, but a new form of the sport is experiencing an explosion in popularity. The NASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational was created to pick up where the Cup Series left off and use the iRacing platform to finish the season. Taking place each Sunday, this series pits NASCAR drivers and dignitaries against one another on a virtual track. Names such as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, and Kyle Bush are a big reason for the early success. The iRacing platform makes the action feel as genuine as possible and is used for training on off days. Denny Hamlin suggested that around half of the people who work for or with NASCAR already have home setups, including wheels and pedals in their homes. This allowed for a quick transition for many races from the real to the digital world. The success of this new form of competition has been undeniable. The races run so far have been watched by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to rave reviews. The odds are available now for upcoming races at Dover and Martindale speedways. William Byron is 3/1 favorite to win both after taking the checkered flag in the last two races and Top-8 finishes in the other two. Timmy Hill is also a guy to keep an eye on. Hill has finished in the Top-3 in all but one race this year and is 15/2 heading into Dover. INDYCAR iRacing Challenge iRacing has also teamed up with INDYCAR to host a virtual racing series while real races are on hold. The competitors are a mix of NTT INDYCAR Series drivers, along with some special invitees such as F1 racer Lando Norris. Norris was a special guest driver for Arrow McLaren for last week's race at the Circuit of the Americas. The 20-year-old dominated the field in fact as he beat out the other 33 drivers on the virtual road course in Texas. Norris had more than 20,000 viewers watching his Twitch stream alone. The races last around 70 minutes and are broadcasted live on NBCSN with live commentary just like a day at the track would have. There is even a pre-race show featuring a national anthem presentation and more. The list of drivers includes seven Indianapolis 500 winners and features names like Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Simon Pagenaud. F1 eSports Virtual Grand Prix Series With the real-world Formula 1 series postponed, the F1 eSports Virtual GP series has stepped into the spotlight. Professional drivers, retired legends, full-time gamers, and celebrities go head to head in events that mirror the real-life series. This gives bettors a chance to continue watching and wagering on competitive racing on weekends. The major difference with the F1 Virtual Series is the platform that is utilized. Formula One has its own branded title developed by Codemasters. While not as realistic as the iRacing software, it is still a popular alternative for fans to watch. It must also be mentioned that this series is not a part of the competitive eSports series that is also currently active. This series is more of an exhibition event and features racers of varying driving and gaming talent. Races are 28 laps or less and follow qualifying to determine the starting positions for each race. The first race saw participants ranging from current F1 drivers Nicholas Latifi and Lando Norris, reserve talent Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Gutierrez, and legend Nico Hülkenburg. Formula 2 racers, Academy drivers, and pros from other series filled out the starting grid. Odds for these events have been popular betting options over the last few weeks. Heading into the next event, Team Renault is favorites to win a 4/1 with McLaren (5/1) and Mercedes (6/1), taking the next two spots on the odds board. The latter is an interesting play at those odds considering Guiterrez and Vandoorne are both F1 test drivers and gamers, making Mercedes a strong contender. These are just three of the major series going on right now, but IMSA, Porche, and the WRC all have eSports events running on a weekly basis. These series will continue to run and provide betting options even when real-world racing returns to action. This is the perfect time for the sports betting industry to embrace not only eSports but the competitive virtual racing scene. PayPerHead® agents can stand to benefit massively from this emerging sport. Especially during these trying times, having a weekly event for fans to bet on is a powerful thing. Any time you can get your clients interested in new events is time well spent. If your pay per head service provider does not include eSports on their list of odds, then it might be time to find a better option. At PayPerHead®, we pride ourselves on offering odds on a slew of virtual and simulation sports to keep your players busy while we await the return of major sports nationwide. If you are ready to switch providers to a company that offers a better variety of odd, then head over to the PayPerHead® and see what offers we have for new clients today!
