The premier event of the NFL offseason is just a week away and Indiana online sportsbooks are getting ready. BetRivers Sportsbook is throwing an NFL Draft Prop Bet Party and the markets have plenty of local connections.
Several markets involve prospects who played their college football in or around IN. They all present opportunities to win some cash on Thursday, April 23 if you bet wisely and do your research between now and then.
BetRivers’ NFL Draft Prop Bet Party for bettors in Indiana
The NFL Draft betting promo features many options. There is everything from bets on how many quarterbacks will go in the first round to who will be the first linebacker taken in the Draft. How you bet will determine your level of success.
If you’re a hardcore fan of one of the colleges local to Indiana, some markets might interest you more than others. For example, Cole Kmet is the favorite to be the first tight end off the board at -400. Kmet played his collegiate ball for Notre Dame.
Chase Young, who was a Buckeye in his college days, sits atop the field in three prominent markets. BetRivers favors the Washington Redskins drafting him second overall (-2,000), a team making him the first defensive player (-5,000), and being the first defensive lineman of the class (-10,000).
Young’s former Ohio State teammate, Jeffery Okudah, is BetRivers’ pick to be the first cornerback selected. Just like Young at the DL position, those odds currently sit at -10,000 for Okudah in the CB market. Okudah also appears at the top of BetRivers’ market for the second defensive player drafted at -182.
For the especially adventurous, there is a market on the exact outcome of the first three overall picks. The shortest odds are on Joe Burrow, Young, and Okudah to go 1-2-3 but the line on that combination sits at +120 and just gets better from there.
BetRivers’ markets on the Bengals’ first pick of the 2020 NFL Draft
If your betting tastes are more of a local NFL team flair, BetRivers has some markets for you as well. That’s especially true if you’re a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals, who currently hold the first overall pick in this year’s draft.
Barring any trades, the Bengals are on the clock right now in a manner of speaking. There is a heavy favorite among analysts, but that means there are some great odds if Cincinnati surprises everyone. BetRivers has several markets relevant to the pick.
BetRivers has Burrow as its -10,000 favorite to be the first overall pick. That might be a trade-proof prognostication, as it’s likely any team who would wheel a deal with the Bengals would do so in order to take Burrow themselves.
If the Bengals, or whichever team makes picks first, do go with Burrow, that would trigger results in other markets. For example, that would make Burrow the first offensive player drafted as well as the first quarterback off the board.
If you’re skeptical of the prognostications, these markets could reward your risk. Quarterbacks Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa both currently sit at +2500 in the first overall pick market, for example.
Regardless of the outcomes of these markets, the NFL Draft is something bettors and fans look forward to each spring. For smart bettors, the night can be especially rewarding should NFL teams comply with their wishes.
