Jets 2021 NFL Draft Bet

After surprise victories over the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns, the New York Jets missed out on the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes. However, with the No. 2 and 23 overall selections, the Jets have plenty of options in the first round.

While it might be a foregone conclusion publicly that BYU’s Zach Wilson will be the next quarterback of the Jets, there’s still a few potentially profitable New York wagers.

Which Team Will Draft Justin Fields?: New York Jets (+2500)

As mentioned above, the foregone conclusion remains that Wilson will be the No. 2 overall selection on draft night. Wilson’s -2500 odds on BetMGM would only cash an 80 cent gain if he is selected No. 2 overall.

However, surprises have happened before. Remember when the world was certain that Sam Darnold would be a Cleveland Brown just one week before draft day in 2018?

The Justin Fields slander is completely overblown. He loves football. He fought to get the Big 10 back after being canceled due to COVID-19. At one point not too long ago, Fields was considered the consolation prize for Lawrence.

Is GM Joe Douglas smart enough to put out a gigantic smokescreen declaring his love for Wilson? Probably not. But, at these odds, if you’ve got the extra cash and an itch for a draft night surprise, betting on Fields to the Jets is the play.


Najee Harris Draft Position: UNDER 29.5 (-105)

Over the last several days, it seems as if pundits and mock-drafters assume that no running backs will be selected in the first round. Despite this, there are too many teams that could use help at the position in the late first round, especially with that extra fifth-year control.

Even if Alabama running back Najee Harris is not the selection to the Jets at No. 23 overall, this is still a somewhat safe pick for New York bettors to make. At No. 24, the Pittsburgh Steelers also need a running back and the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars could probably use Harris as well.

A backfield consisting of Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson is not scaring anyone. Walking away from the first round with a franchise quarterback and cornerstone running back would be an impressive haul for the Jets.

NBA Betting News

  • Warriors -10000 to win West

    The Golden State Warriors are -10000 to win the Western Conference, according to BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    The Warriors hold a commanding 3-0 series lead and are fully expected to advance to the NBA Finals. No team has ever overcome a 0-3 hole to win a Conference Finals series.

  • Warriors -143 to win NBA Championship

    The Golden State Warriors are -143 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    With the Western Conference Finals all but wrapped up with the Warriors holding a 3-0 series lead, Golden State has become the first team pegged with negative juice to win it all. Their odds will only see more movement prior to Game 4, and after they win the series, so those with designs on a Warriors future may want to take that into consideration.

  • Celtics +340 to win NBA Title

    The Boston Celtics are listed at +340 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    Boston, back at the +340 they sat at prior to Game 2, has seen their championship odds hold steady despite their odds to win the East dropping from positive to negative juice. Boston was +180 prior to Game 3's loss.

  • Celtics -105 to win East

    The Boston Celtics are -105 to win the Eastern Conference, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    The Celtics sat at +130 just yesterday but have climbed in the wake of the news that Tyler Herro is out with a quad injury and due to Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry both being listed as questionable for Game 4. If Boston ties up the series, their odds will rise dramatically. Boston was -167 heading into Game 3.

  • Celtics vs. Heat over/under listed at 206.5

    The over/under for tonight's matchup between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat is listed at 206.5, per BettingPros consensus odds.
