NFL Draft: Eckel shares some prop bets to make it more interesting -- Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Nick Bosa, more

The odds are really short, but it seems to be a foregone conclusion that Kyler Murray will be No. 1

Mark Eckel

The NFL Draft begins Thursday night in Nashville and we found some prop bets that could make the night more interesting for you.

Here are a few of those, with our take on each.

2019 NFL Draft 1st Overall Pick
Kyler Murray
1/4
Nick Bosa 3/1
Quinnen Williams 5/1
Josh Allen 25/1

The odds are really short, but it seems to be a foregone conclusion that Murray will be No. 1. Take the bet before it’s off the board.

2019 NFL Draft - Offensive Players Selected in the 1st Round
Over/Under: 15½

I’m going with the under. A lack of quality running backs and wide receivers lead me to this conclusion.

2019 NFL Draft - Defensive Players Selected in the 1st Round
Over/Under: 16½

Take the over. There could be 12 or 13 DL/Edge rushers alone.

2019 NFL Draft- Number of Quarterbacks Drafted in Round 1
Over/Under: 3½

There should only be one, maybe two, but teams get desperate for quarterbacks. So take the over and hope Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock and Dan Jones all go after Murray some time Thursday night.

2019 NFL Draft - Will the Top Two Picks Both be Quarterbacks?
No -5000 (1/50)
Yes +2000 (20/1)

You should never lay 1-50. So just ignore this bet.

2019 NFL Draft - Number of Running Backs Drafted in Round 1
Under 1: -300 (1/3)
Over 1: +200 (2/1)

Ignore this one as well.

2019 NFL Draft - Number of Wide Receivers Drafted in Round 1
Over/Under: 2½

Take the under slightly.

2019 NFL Draft - When Will the First Wide Receiver be Drafted
Over/Under: 19½

If under means 19 or before, go with that.

2019 NFL Draft - Number of Alabama Players Selected in Round 1
Over 2½: -160 (5/8)
Under 2½: +120 (6/5)

Take the over. DT Quinnen Williams and OT Jonah Williams are locks. So hope for at least one of TE Irv Smith, RB Josh Jacobs (most likely) or LB Mack Wilson.

2019 NFL Draft Position - Kyler Murray
Under 2½: -500 (1/5)
Over 2½ : +300 (3/1)

Again, it’s bad odds, but take the under.

2019 NFL Draft Position - Dwayne Haskins
Over/Under: 10½

I actually think he goes 11 to the Bengals, but a team might trade up into the top 10. So bet this at your own risk.
