The 2023 NFL Draft is set to begin on April 27 in Kansas City, and it has become quite a popular betting event.
To ring in the occasion, below are our top five NFL Draft prop bets along with a few NFL Draft promos to take advantage of ahead of Thursday's opening round.
2023 NFL Draft betting props: Best bets including Will Anderson and Bijan Robinson odds, plus more
Will Anderson Jr. draft odds: No. 3 overall pick (+300 or better)
The Arizona Cardinals have the third overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft and will have their pick of the litter outside QB Bryce Young and one other player, perhaps QB CJ Stroud.
While intriguing QB prospects such as Anthony Richardson and Will Levis will be sitting right there, it is unlikely Arizona takes the plunge on a new snap-caller.
Let us not forget they're on the hook for five years and $230.5 million to incumbent Kyler Murray.
That's when we turn our attention to these Will Anderson draft odds if Arizona does indeed keep the pick.
Anderson Jr. had 152 tackles and 27.5 sacks in his final two seasons at Alabama. He has won a variety of honors, including the Chuck Bednarik Award and the Lombardi Award, and has arguably the highest ceiling of any pass-rusher.
Bijan Robinson draft props: Taken by Philadelphia Eagles (+400 or better)
The Eagles are a smash-mouth football team that just came up three points short of a potential Super Bowl championship.
They achieved most of their success through their dominant running game but now have a vacancy in the backfield following Miles Sanders' departure for Carolina.
Running back is consistently the easiest position for college players to transition to when it comes to entering the NFL. Robinson will very likely be the first back off the board and has a physical presence that perfectly complements the Eagles.
Philly will also want to protect Jalen Hurts, who was banged up repeatedly last year, giving more credence to them bringing in more backfield help.
2023 NFL Draft QB props: Over 4.5 QBs taken in 1st round (+106 or better)
Young, Stroud, Richardson, and Levis are all virtual locks to go in the first round, but how about one more?
Richardson may have the greatest risk of the four of slipping on draft day (re: Lamar Jackson), but his athleticism and physical ability wowed so many scouts that it’s hard to imagine all of that smoke was for nothing.
That leaves this bet hinging almost entirely on whether or not Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker has his name announced in the first 32 picks.
Hooker was the nation’s best passer (3,565 total yards, 32 touchdowns, two interceptions) when he tore his ACL but was a late bloomer.
This also depends on if Levis and Richardson are off the board early, but it feels like he’ll push the total over 4.5.
Chicago Bears NFL Draft bets : Offensive lineman with first selection (-180 or better)
The Bears have three obvious options for their first pick which (barring a trade) at No. 9: offensive lineman, defensive lineman, or wide receiver.
It is unlikely that they take a receiver having just traded for D.J. Moore and traded for Chase Claypool last season, giving them a bonafide three-man receiving corps with Darnell Mooney rounding out the trio.
Chicago produced the fewest sacks in the league but also allowed their quarterback to be sacked 55 times, which was tied for the most in the NFL.
Teams always want to protect their asset (Fields), and the Bears would be wise to invest their first pick on an offensive lineman such as Peter Skoronski, Paris Johnson Jr. or Broderick Jones.
First TE drafted bets: Darnell Washington (+700 or better)
This is one of those NFL Draft longshot bets that you are cautious about, but can still benefit from in a huge way if you're right.
Washington was not that productive as a pass-catcher for the national-champion Georgia Bulldogs but is the very definition of an athletic freak.
At 6-foot-7 and 270 pounds, he is basically another offensive lineman that can run as fast as linebackers and some secondary players.
Washington’s overall athleticism score was even ahead of future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski.
He only caught 28 passes for 454 yards and two touchdowns last season but is the type of project player that teams notoriously overpay for because of the potential payout if everything pans out.
