NFL Draft Odds: Who will be the No. 2 overall pick?
By Bob Garcia
The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 29th and it’s the most exciting and optimistic time of the year for football fans.
But do you know what makes the NFL Draft even more exciting? It’s betting on the action at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook. We have five different prop bets available already, including what we think is the most interesting one.
Who will be the second overall pick in the NFL Draft?
Zach Wilson, BYU (+122)
Penei Sewell, Oregon (+184)
Justin Fields, Ohio State (+215)
Trey Lance, North Dakota State (+517)
This list is three quarterbacks and an offensive lineman (Sewell). The No. 1 overall pick is almost definitely going to be Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars. There are odds available on the Clemson quarterback going No. 1 but they are fairly cost prohibitive at -4671.
The NY Jets hold the No. 2 overall pick and there are a number of different ways they can go. They can trade current quarterback Sam Darnold to the highest bidder and then select a quarterback. Wilson has been rising up teams’ draft boards, with Fields reportedly dropping in the minds of some. However, that could change once both quarterbacks are dissected more heading into the draft.
New York can also decide to keep Darnold and draft another position at No. 2. I don’t see that as very likely as there is much more value in trading the pick to another team seeking a quarterback. For example, the Jets could trade down to Carolina at No. 8 and still get a very good player, plus probably a first round pick next year, or possibly more.
Best Value Pick: Fields (+215)
Worst Value Pick: Sewell (+184)
