2024 Best NFL Draft Bets: Top Five Picks and Odds

2024 Best NFL Draft Bets: Top Five Picks and Odds

The NFL has one of the longest gaps between seasons in professional sports, but the league also tends to have the busiest offseason

MyBookie Best NFL Draft Bets: Top Five Picks and Odds

Coaches and GM’s basically get a couple of weeks off at the end of the season, after which they start thinking about cuts, offseason moves, and the NFL Draft. We have already seen a bunch of big-name players change destinations, but what really tends to shake things up is the draft. Which is set to go at the end of April. Some teams will get better after the draft, while others are going to miss the mark. We will get into a deeper discussion about the draft as a whole, but right now, we are going to talk about the potential top 5 NFL picks, so let’s get to it.


#1 Chicago Bears

There are going to be zero surprises here, as the Bears will be taking Caleb Williams as the #1 pick. They made their intention very clear by moving Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers, leaving space for their new quarterbacks. William’s odds of going as the top pick in the 2024 NFL Draft are at -10000, so as you can see, there are not going to be any upsets here. The Bears will then need to think about bolstering their O-Line, as Williams won’t be able to do much if he isn’t protected.

#2 Washington Commanders

The Commanders will get the second pick in the draft, but what will they do with it? With new ownership in place, expect the Commanders to be aggressive this offseason, starting with picking up a QB in the draft. They have some good options to pick from, but the general consensus seems to be that they will go with QB Jayden Daniels out of LSU. He is at -180 to be taken as the second overall pick in the draft, with most mock drafts that I’ve seen putting him in that spot.

#3 New England Patriots

The Bill Belichick era is over in New England, so it is tough to know what the Patriots might do with a new coach. Realistically speaking, a new coach will likely be looking for a new QB to work with, but pundits seem to be split on whether it will be Drake Maye or J.J. McCarthy that gets picked as the #3 seed. In terms of the odds, Maye (-2000) is slightly ahead of McCarthy (-2500) on the bookies board, but this does feel like a coin flip.

#4 Arizona Cardinals

Considering that Kyler Murray is still the man under center in Arizona, the feeling is that the Cardinals will be taking a wide receiver with their first pick of the 2024 draft. Again, there seems to be some disagreement as to who that pick will be. Some believe it will be Marvin Harrison Jr., while others are leaning toward Malik Nabers. Harrison Jr. appears to be the favorite to go in this spot, but we shall see.

#5 Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are another team looking for a new QB via the draft, so the outlook here looks to be pretty straightforward. If things go as expected, The Patriots are going to take either Maye or McCarthy, which would seem to suggest that the Vikings will roll the dice with the QB that is not selected by New England in the #3 spot.

2022 NFL Updated Draft Pick Odds

The NFL never takes a break which is why even though the Rams beat the Bengals on Feb. 13 to win Super Bowl 56, already football fans and handicappers have turned their attention to the 2022 NFL Draft. The draft doesn’t happen until April 28. Odds, though, have already posted on which player will go to the Jacksonville Jaguars with the first pick. Check predictions, along with current NFL Draft odds, for the first five picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.

NFL Updated Draft Pick Odds – First Pick Odds and Top 5 Predictions 

2022 NFL Draft

  • When: April 28 – April 30
  • Where: Allegiant Stadium, Paradise, NV
  • TV/Streaming: ESPN/ESPN+/ABC/NFL Net

1. Jacksonville Jaguars –  OT Ikem Ekwonu +450 – NC State

We should first settle the main argument. Do the Jaguars, who require help at every position, go defense or offense with the top pick?

We think offense. The Jaguars hired Doug Pederson, who won a Super Bowl as HC of the Philadelphia Eagles, for their latest rebuild. Pederson is comfortable with Trevor Lawrence at quarterback.

But he also knows that having Lawrence does no good if he can’t keep Trevor healthy. So expect Pederson to pull the trigger on either Evan Neal from Bama or the top predicted pick, Ikem Ekwonu from NC State.

Why Ekwonu over Neal? The buzz on Ikem has been deafening and we haven’t even gone through the Combine yet. Also, Ekwonu can play every position along the line except for center. He’s a converted guard, which means Pederson can rearrange his offensive line and play Ekwonu where he best fits. 

2. Detroit Lions –  EDGE Aidan Hutchison +164 – Michigan

It’s too early to draft a quarterback. Not only that, but when he could show his stuff, Jared Goff actually played well with Detroit.

The Lions aren’t far away from having a decent team. Aidan Hutchison takes them a step further. He’s a dynamite edge rusher with a never-ending motor and should excel in Detroit’s schemes. 

3. Houston Texans –  OT Evan Neal +147 – Alabama

Houston appears happy with David Mills at quarterback, which is a good thing because to jump start their offense or rebuild their defense, the Texans must try and get a king’s ransom for Deshaun Watson.

Protecting Mills, or Watson if he ends up starting, is a priority. Neal fits the mold. He’s a gigantic left tackle who protected the Heisman Trophy winner from getting knocked around by ferocious SEC defenses. 

If the Jags draft Neal with the first pick, the Texans will go with Ekwonu. 

4. New York Jets –  OT Charles Cross – Mississippi State

A third offensive lineman in the top four picks in the draft? Yep. Opponents sacked Zach Wilson 44 times in the BYU product’s first season under center.

Wilson got hit so much that he had to sit out 4 games. Every NFL fan on the planet knows the only way to keep your quarterback from having a short career is to protect him. The Jets will be doing cartwheels at Allegiant Stadium if Neal or Ekwonu falls to fourth. If both have already picked up their cap and jersey, Cross will get the call. 

5. New York Giants – EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux +440 – Oregon 

Most had Thibodeaux going first up until the final month of the regular season. That’s when it became clear that the Jacksonville Jaguars were a lock to get the first pick in the draft.

The Jags must protect Trevor Lawrence. Thibodeaux could go to the Lions with the second pick, but Kayvon didn’t produce as much as Hutchison did.

Not only that, Hutchison is a Wolverine. Detroit Lions fans will go crazy if the franchise doesn’t select Hutchison.

So there’s a real chance the former top pick falls all the way to five. No worries for Kayvon. The New York Giants should be on the improve and the defense isn’t nearly as bad as Detroit’s. So Thibodeaux could have success ala Micah Parsons because he may not see as many double-teams as Hutchison will see with Detroit.
