The 2021 NFL draft will take place April 29-May 1 in Cleveland, Ohio. While it isn't the Super Bowl or NCAA tournament in terms of sports betting handle, there are plenty of value bets out there to make from a growing number of bookmakers.
Will Mac Jones go No. 3 overall? Will Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith be the first wide receiver off the board?
Our experts -- Danny Burke, Kelly Bydlon, Adam Candee, Paul Howard, Brady Kannon, Mitch Moss, Tim Murray, Wes Reynolds and Matt Youmans -- are here to give their best bets on the multitude of prop bets available at U.S. sportsbooks, leading up to the NFL draft.
Offensive players drafted in Round 1: UNDER 18.5 (+ 100)
Kannon: The first half of the first round looks to be very offensive player heavy. Because of that, and the way the NFL is so dominated by quarterbacks and offense, I believe this number is inflated by at least 1.5. I think the highest total of offensive players taken in the first round will be 17 -- and it’s probably more like 15 or 16. This should stay well under 18.5, not allowing too big of a sweat for bettors.
