Pauly Parlays makes his prediction on the 2nd QB Prop Bet for the 2021 NFL Draft. Zach Wilson? Justin Fields? Someone else? Read for his 2021 Draft Bet for the No. 2 QB chosen.
2nd QB Prop Bet: Predicting No. 2 QB Picked in 2021 NFL Draft
Quarterbacks are the lifeblood of the NFL. That’s even more apparent when you look at the odds for the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Trevor Lawrence is all but guaranteed to go No. 1 to the Jacksonville Jaguars — his (-5000) odds say just that. Then Zach Wilson is the odds-on favorite to go No. 2 with (-170). And Justin Fields leads the way to go No. 3 overall at (+200).
Since we know Lawrence will be the first quarterback selected, let’s take a look at the odds to be the second QB drafted.
2021 NFL Draft Prop Bet: Second QB To Be Drafted (PointsBet)
- Zach Wilson, BYU (-175)
- Justin Fields, Ohio State (+175)
- Trey Lance, North Dakota State (+250)
- Mac Jones, Alabama (+1500)
- Trevor Lawrence, Clemson (+2500)
- Kyle Trask, Florida (+5000)
Again, Wilson sits atop those odds, making him the most likely option here, but the value play I see is clearly Fields.
Right now, the New York Jets own the No. 2 pick. Their front office is seemingly keen on Wilson (the odds point to that), but that doesn’t mean the Jets will ultimately make that selection — we could easily see a trade.
There have been rumors of the Jets moving the pick to an array of teams, including the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and even the Philadelphia Eagles.
Placing a bet on the second QB to be drafted is really a prediction of who will have the No. 2 pick come draft night and what their preferred option is to lead their team in the future. I’ve seen enough rumors and mock drafts where Fields goes No. 2 that the plus odds are too appetizing to pass up.
2nd QB Prop Bet: Pauly’s Pick
Whoever does make the No. 2 selection in the 2021 NFL Draft will take a quarterback. It’s simply a question of which one. The odds say go with Wilson, but close to 2-to-1 odds for Fields is where I’m likely putting my money here.
