The NFL Draft’s first round is scheduled to take place in less than four weeks (April 23) and potential wagers have begun to pop up everywhere.

Over the past few days and continuing this week we’ll look at some of the more interesting ones and of course throw in our opinions on which ones are worth a buck, or three.

Today’s wagers centers on whether certain players will be first-round selections.

Iowa DL A.J. Epenesa

Yes -250

No +175

Bet: I’m tempted to take the odds here, but Yes is probably the correct play.

Clemson CB A.J. Terrell

Yes: +110

No -150

Bet: There are a lot of good corners in this draft and Terrell looks like a good second-round pick.

Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk

Yes: +175

No: -250

Bet: As with Terrell above, there are a lot of good wide receivers and Aiyuk falls to the second round.

Georgia RB D’Andre Swift

Yes: +110

No: -150

Bet: What’s the name of the band that sang Roundabout? YES.

Baylor WR Denzel Mims

Yes: +110

No: -150

Bet: What’s the name of the TV station that broadcasts Yankees games? YES.

LSU S Grant Delpit

Yes: -180

No: +140

Bet: This in interesting. He was a lock. But the more scouts watch him the less they seem to like him. I’d stay away here, or take a shot on No.

TCU WR Jalen Reagor

Yes: +160

No: -225

Bet: Go big on Yes and thank me later.

TCU CB Jeff Gladney

Yes: +180

No: -270

Bet: No is the right side, but those odds are not good.

Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor

Yes: +175

No: -250

Bet: Yes might be worth a small wager, just because of the odds. He has a shot at the bottom of the round.

TCU DT Ross Blacklock

Yes: +120

No: -160

Bet: Another close call, but I’m leaning toward No.

Clemson WR Tee Higgins

Yes: Even

No: -140

Bet: Throw a little bit on Yes. Some teams just love big receivers.

Wisconsin LB Zack Baun

Yes: +140

No: -180

Bet: Yes should be an easy pick, because this guy is really good. Some team will figure it out before pick 32. Take Yes.
