NFL Draft Odds & Best Prop Bets 2024

Last Updated: Feb 5, 2024

The 2024 NFL Draft is quickly approaching and the Chicago Bears are on the clock with the No. 1 overall pick. This year’s draft begins Thursday, April 25 and runs through Saturday, April 27.

The 2024 draft will take place in Detroit as the Lions play host to the 89th annual event. A lot can happen between now and then, and sportsbooks are already taking bets on who will be selected No. 1 in 2024.

Here’s a look at some of the odds for first overall pick, first QB selected, and first non-QB selected.

NFL Draft Odds & Props

NFL Draft Futures odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook and are current as of 9 a.m. ET, on Monday, Feb. 25, 2024.

2024 NFL Draft No. 1 Pick Odds

  • Caleb Williams, QB, USC (-900)
  • Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (+475)
  • Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (+1000)
  • Marvin Harrison, Jr., WR, Ohio State (+1100)
  • Michael Penix, Jr., QB, Washington (+4000)
  • Bo Nix, QB, Oregon (+9000)
  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (+10000)
  • Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (+10000)
  • Dallas Turner, OLB, Alabama (+10000)
  • Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA (+10000)
  • Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State (+10000)
  • Michael Hall, Jr., DT, Ohio State (+10000)
  • Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama (+15000)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+15000)
  • J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama (+15000)
  • Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB, Clemson (+20000)
  • Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia (+25000)
  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+25000)
  • Javon Bullard, S, Georgia (+30000)
  • Blake Corum, RB, Michigan (+30000)
  • Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina (+30000)

Williams, the 2022 Heisman Trophy winner, is by far the favorite to go No. 1 overall as soon and the odds at this point are prohibitive.

Archie Griffin remains the only player to ever win multiple Heisman Trophies after the award was taken home by LSU’s Jayden Daniels.

Seven of the past nine top picks have been quarterbacks, and the five of the top six odds are quarterbacks. Drake Maye, Daniels, Michael Penix Jr., and Bo Nix are within shouting distance and I believe we’re early enough in the evaluation process for this order to shift quite a bit between now and draft day.

No. 1 Pick Best Bet: Drake Maye (+475) • DraftKings Sportsbook

The best play at this moment is to avoid Williams at these odds since there’s no value at (-900). Maye didn’t quite live up to expectations but he didn’t have many weapons with the Tar Heels.

Maye provides enough value to make a quarter-unit bet and is my NFL pick of the day.

2024 NFL Draft First QB Selected Odds

  • Caleb Williams, QB, USC (-1000)
  • Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (+450)
  • Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (+1000)
  • Michael Penix, Jr., QB, Washington (+4000)
  • Bo Nix, QB, Oregon (+7500)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+10000)
  • Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina (+20000)
  • Jordan Travis, QB, Florida State (+25000)
  • Sam Hartman, QB, Notre Dame (+25000)
  • Devin Leary, QB, Kentucky (+40000)
  • Kedon Slovis, QB, BYU (+100000)

First QB Selected: Drake Maye (+450) • DraftKings Sportsbook

There’s no winning value here since it’s clear now that a quarterback will be the first pick as no other position appears to have a player in that conversation. You’ll notice all the odds in this bet are a step below the odds provided in the No. 1 pick bet.

For now, technically, the bet is Maye; however, you should place your wager under the No. 1 pick.

2024 NFL Draft First Non-QB Selected Odds

  • Marvin Harrison, Jr., WR, Ohio State (-475)
  • Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (+500)
  • Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State (+650)
  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (+900)
  • Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA (+1100)
  • Dallas Turner, OLB, Alabama (+1300)
  • Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia (+2500)
  • Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama (+3000)
  • Michael Hall, Jr., DT, Ohio State (+5000)
  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+6000)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+7500)
  • Kalen King, CB, Penn State (+7500)
  • Jer’Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois (+7500)
  • Kamren Kinchens, S, Miami (+7500)
  • Graham Barton, G, Duke (+7500)
  • J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama (+7500)
  • Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB, Clemson (+10000)
  • Javon Bullard, S, Georgia (+10000)
  • Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington (+12000)
  • Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State (+12000)
  • Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa (+15000)
  • Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State (+15000)
  • Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon (+20000)
  • Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State (+20000)
  • Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas (+25000)
  • Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin (+25000)
  • Blake Corum, RB, Michigan (+25000)

First Non-QB Selected Best Bet: Marvin Harrison (-475) • DraftKings Sportsbook

This bet is more wide open than the odds indicate after Marvin Harrison Jr. While MHJ is an exceptional prospect, many teams drafting at the top of the draft may have more pressing needs than a wide receiver.

Unless you are exceedingly confident in your scouting abilities, it’s likely best to play it safe and stick with Harrison even with the low-value ROI available.
