The 2024 NFL Draft is upon us, beginning on Thursday, April 25 until Saturday, April 27, live from Detroit, Michigan.

This is the ideal time to take a look at NFL Draft odds and best bets because we’re starting to get a better read on landing spots, especially in the first round.

On this page, you’ll find NFL Draft odds and best bets for the first 10 selections and much more. If you’re interested in reading a full breakdown of the first round, check out my NFL Mock Draft.

NFL Draft Odds & Props

NFL Draft Futures odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook and are current as of 7 p.m. ET, on Monday, Apr. 17, 2024.

2024 NFL Draft No. 1 Pick Odds

  • Caleb Williams, QB, USC (-10000)
  • Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (+2000)
  • Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (+3000)
  • Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State (+4000)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+5000)

Caleb Williams is locked in as the first overall pick for the Bears, especially after they traded away Justin Fields to the Steelers.

We should see the USC standout thrive in Chicago because of a strong supporting cast that includes D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen.

There’s no point laying (-10000) odds on Williams here because that would only pay $1 on a $1,000 wager.

2024 NFL Draft No. 2 Pick Odds

  • Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (-350)
  • Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (+260)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+900)

We’ve heard recent smoke about Jayden Daniels headed to the Commanders, which is why the LSU star’s odds have been steamed to (-350).

But let’s remember that Drake Maye was the consensus QB2 for much of the draft process, so we can’t rule out the former Tar Heel landing in Washington.

It’s important to not overreact to media reports leading up to the draft. Just look at last season, when Will Levis was expected to go to the Colts and C.J. Stroud was supposed go later than expected.

2024 NFL Draft No. 3 Pick Odds

  • Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (-155)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+210)
  • Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (+285)

Best Bet: Jayden Daniels No. 3 Pick (+285)

WAGER: 0.25 units • DraftKings Sportsbook

If you’re like me and think that Drake Maye is going at 2, you can get a better price on this outcome by going with Jayden Daniels to go 3 at (+285).

That’s because the Patriots are highly likely to take a quarterback with their first-round pick, especially if Daniels is on the board.

With this strategy, you’re essentially getting Maye at 2 at a (+285) price rather than the listed (+260) odds, giving you 25 cents of extra value.

2024 NFL Draft No. 4 Pick Odds

  • Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State (-190)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+175)

Best Bet: Marvin Harrison Jr. No. 4 Pick (-190)

WAGER: 1 unit • DraftKings Sportsbook

I would be shocked if the Cardinals passed up the opportunity to take Marvin Harrison Jr., who is a likely immediate star at the professional level.

Arizona could pair Harrison with Trey McBride to form an impressive wide receiver and tight end duo for quarterback Kyler Murray.

The only way J.J. McCarthy goes here is if the Vikings or Giants trade up to this pick, but I don’t think that the Cardinals will pass up such an elite prospect like Harrison Jr.

Even at (-175) odds, I’m willing to drink the juice on Harrison Jr. to the Cardinals.

2024 NFL Draft No. 5 Pick Odds

  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+220)
  • Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State (+275)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+275)
  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (+475)

The Chargers are likely to either take Malik Nabers here or trade down to a quarterback-needy team like the Giants or Vikings, who would be going with J.J. McCarthy.

I don’t see Harrison Jr. falling to this pick, so I’d avoid taking him at (+275) odds.

Joe Alt is a possibility, but the Chargers have other needs besides the offensive line.

That makes either Nabers (+220) or McCarthy (+275) as viable choices.

2024 NFL Draft No. 6 Pick Odds

  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+145)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+250)
  • J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan (+500)
  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (+850)

The sixth pick looks like a good spot for Malik Nabers, who would fill a major need for a Giants team that sorely needs a game-breaking talent at wide receiver.

I don’t think that the G-Men would take Rome Odunze over Nabers, so it’s not worth it to make that play at (+250) odds.

At the same time, (+145) is not enough value to take Nabers here, making it best to leave this one alone.

2024 NFL Draft No. 7 Pick Odds

  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (-175)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+600)
  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+800)
  • Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State (+850)
  • Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State (+950)

Best Bet: Joe Alt No. 7 Pick (-175)

WAGER: 1 unit • DraftKings Sportsbook

Joe Alt is highly priced at (-175) odds, but it makes sense because the Titans have a major need on the offensive line.

When you look at the teams from 1-6, you can easily see a path for Alt to fall to 7, especially with the quarterbacks and wide receivers available at those picks.

The Titans got a new wideout in Calvin Ridley and new running back in Tony Pollard for young quarterback Will Levis, now it’s time to solidify the offensive line.

It will be interesting to see the Titans odds to make the playoffs because this team had a terrific offseason.

2024 NFL Draft No. 8 Pick Odds

  • Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama (+180)
  • Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA (+275)
  • Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (+650)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+700)

Best Bet: Laiatu Latu No. 8 Pick (+275)

WAGER: 0.25 units • DraftKings Sportsbook

The Falcons have used three top 10 picks on offensive players in the last three years, selecting Bijan Robinson, Drake London, and Kyle Pitts.

That makes it highly likely that Atlanta would pass on Rome Odunze for the chance to address their pass rush with one of the top edge rushers in this year’s draft.

While Dallas Turner is the favorite, I like taking a shot on Laiatu Latu, who is starting to gain some steam. The former UCLA standout has been described as one of the most complete pass rushers in this class.

2024 NFL Draft No. 9 Pick Odds

  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+150)
  • Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (+275)
  • Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama (+700)

Rome Odunze is the likely pick at No. 9, which is reflected in the (+150) odds.

The Bears appear to be committed to stacking their offense for Caleb Williams, already trading for Keenan Allen while signing D’Andre Swift and Gerald Everett.

Bringing in another big target like Odunze would make one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL.

2024 NFL Draft No. 10 Pick Odds

  • Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia (+150)
  • Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State (+600)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+700)
  • Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State (+750)
  • Troy Fautanu, OT, Washington (+900)

The Jets could bolster their offensive line with one of the available tackles here, but securing an elite tight end prospect like Brock Bowers makes a lot of sense.

New York needs to stack their offense to help out Aaron Rodgers as he returns from a torn Achilles injury.

Bowers can be elite after the catch, providing the team with another weapon to go along with Garrett Wilson, Breece Hall, and Mike Williams.

2024 NFL Draft First Non-QB Selected Odds

  • Marvin Harrison, Jr., WR, Ohio State (-500)
  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+300)
  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (+1000)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+2800)

I can’t see a scenario where Marvin Harrison Jr. is not the first non-QB off the board, which is easily seen in the (-500) price.

The Cardinals need to draft a wideout at 4, especially with Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore no longer with the team.

I’d steer clear of this market and look elsewhere to find value.

NFL Draft First WR Picked Odds

  • Marvin Harrison, Jr., WR, Ohio State (-500)
  • Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (+300)
  • Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (+2500)

While there’s been some talk that a few teams prefer Malik Nabers over Marvin Harrison Jr., I’m not buying that noise.

Harrison Jr. has been the consensus no. 1 wideout prospect for the last two years, so it’s hard to see that flipping at the draft.

While I wouldn’t lay a bet on Harrison Jr. at (-500) odds, that doesn’t mean I’d take Nabers (+300) or Rome Odunze (+2500).

NFL Draft First RB Picked Odds

  • Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas (+125)
  • Trey Benson, RB, Florida State (+180)
  • Jaylen Wright, RB, Tennessee (+425)
  • Blake Corum, RB, Michigan (+450)
  • MarShawn Lloyd, RB, South Carolina (+750)

The first RB taken in this year’s draft is highly likely to be either Jonathon Brooks or Trey Benson, as is reflected in the odds.

Brooks is an elusive back with the accelaration to take it to the house, while Benson has the size and speed to be a lead runner in the pros.

I don’t have a lean either way on which back goes first, but I’d definitely say that it’s one of these two.

NFL Draft Second TE Picked Odds

  • Ben Sinnott, TE, Kansas State (+150)
  • Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas (+175)
  • Theo Johnson, TE, Penn State (+700)
  • Cade Stover, TE, Ohio State (+800)
  • Jared Wiley, TE, TCU (+900)

With Brock Bowers as the clear-cut top tight end in this draft, there’s not even a market for first TE selected on DraftKings.

As for the second tight end, it’s between Ben Sinnott and Ja’Tavion Sanders as the two favorites.

Sinnott is athletic and can rack up yards after the catch, while Sanders has more ability to win downfield.

Look for Sanders to wind up as the second tight end off the board behind Brock Bowers.

NFL Draft First OL Picked Odds

  • Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (-450)
  • Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State (+475)
  • Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State (+950)
  • JC Latham, OT, Alabama (+1200)

Joe Alt is a virtual lock to be the first OL picked in this year’s draft, but you can look at the second OL picked market to find some value.

JC Latham is (+400) to be the second OL off the board, and the former Alabama standout is getting a lot of steam lately.

NFL.com’s Peter Schrager reported that some teams like Latham as the second-best tackle, so this is firmly in play.

NFL Draft First Defender Picked Odds

  • Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama (-135)
  • Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA (+275)
  • Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (+400)
  • Byron Murphy II, DT, Washington (+1100)
  • Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo (+1400)

The first defender selected is likely to be one of the edge rushers in Dallas Turner or Laiatu Latu, especially with the Falcons having a major need at this position at 8th overall.

I would recommend avoiding Dallas Turner at this price at (-135) odds. You can just take him to go at pick 8 to the Falcons at a much better number (+180).

Either way, I can’t see Jared Verse, Byron Murphy II, or Quinyon Mitchell as the first defensive player in this year’s class.

Michael Penix Jr: To Be Selected By Which Team Odds

  • Las Vegas Raiders (+260)
  • Minnesota Vikings (+350)
  • Seattle Seahawks (+450)
  • Denver Broncos (+550)
  • New England Patriots (+750)
  • New York Giants (+950)

Best Bet: Michael Penix Jr. to Raiders (+260)

WAGER: 0.25 units • DraftKings Sportsbook

There has been a lot of smoke about the Raiders being enamored with Michael Penix Jr., with some mocks even projecting him at 13, so it’s no surprise to see them favored at (+260).

Las Vegas picks 44th overall in the second round, but the good news is that each of the teams above either will take a quarterback in the first (Commanders, Patriots) or don’t need a new passer.

I’m predicting that the Raiders will grab an offensive tackle in the first and Penix in the second.

However, what’s great about this bet is that you have two outs: the Raiders can reach on Penix in the first or wait to take him on Day 2.

Bo Nix: To Be Selected By Which Team Odds

  • Denver Broncos (-175)
  • Minnesota Vikings (+425)
  • Las Vegas Raiders (+500)
  • New York Giants (+700)

The Broncos reportedly are big fans of Bo Nix, but they don’t have a second rounder in this year’s draft.

I’m predicting that Denver will trade down from first-round pick of 13 to secure more draft capital to lock in Nix on Day 2.

Having said that, this is too rich of a price to lock in a bet here.

Blake Corum: To Be Selected By Which Team Odds

  • Los Angeles Chargers (+190)
  • New York Giants (+330)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+750)
  • Minnesota Vikings (+850)

The Chargers added Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins to their backfield, bringing the former Ravens teammates along with Baltimore’s previous offensive coordinator Greg Roman to Los Angeles.

Having said that, I don’t think that the Dobbins signing will stop them from drafting Blake Corum.

For one, Dobbins is coming off a torn Achilles and signed a one-year deal, so his role is far from guaranteed. Secondly, Jim Harbaugh loves his former star Michigan back, making it likely that we see Corum in LA.

However, I would recommend waiting on this play. There’s a chance that we get better odds as we get closer to the draft, especially after the Dobbins signing.
