Let’s start with the quarterbacks
Recent speculation has Malik Willis (o/u 10.5) and Kenny Pickett (o/u 12.5) waiting to be picked longer than expected with the juice favoring their OVERS at -125 and -165, respectively. However, with two quarterback-needy franchises, Carolina (No. 6) and Atlanta (No. 8), holding top-10 selections and a team like Pittsburgh (No. 20) primed to move up, we favor the UNDER (-115) on the dual-threat, cannon-armed Liberty QB.
Desmond Ridder under 29.5 at -115 is even a safer wager after the Bearcats signal-caller reportedly impressed executives in one-on-one interviews after killing it at the NFL Draft Combine. We also like Matt Corral over 32.5 at -140, but beware of the Seahawks moving into the later half of the first round for their Russell Wilson replacement.
Via @PointsBet, Malik Willis is favored to be the first QB drafted, but Kenny Pickett is the favorite to be picked by the Panthers at No. 6. https://t.co/UwZxC5iUzI

The curious case of Kyle Hamilton
Kyle Hamilton is a top-five prospect on the boards of respective NFL Draft analysts such as Daniel Jeremiah, but the Notre Dame safety’s over/under has fallen from 6.5 to 8.5 to 11.5 in the past few months with the juice still to the over at -140.
Kayvon Thibodeaux had heavy action towards the over at 5.5 just a week ago, however, after news surfaced that both the Lions (No. 2) and Jets (No. 4) were interested, the Oregon edge rusher is now sitting at under 4.5 (-170).
Charles Cross was bet down from 6.5 to 7.5 with -135 on the OVER. The Mississippi State offensive lineman has been heavily mocked to both the Panthers (No. 6) and Giants (No. 5 and No. 7), so this could be a case where the winds blew bettors in the wrong direction.
Best over/under bets
If you’re just getting into NFL Draft Props this week, many of the juiciest money-making opportunities have already dried up, but here are some of the surest bets still on the board:
Andrew Booth (o28.5 at -135) has been riddled with injuries throughout his high-school and college career. NFL executives will pass on the Clemson corner. Meanwhile, defensive coordinators see Michigan safety Daxton Hill (u28.5 at -130) as a versatile chess piece that can be moved all over the board.

It’s easy to see why Georgia won the college football national championship with up to five defensive studs expected to go in the first round or early on day 2. With domestic violence concerns surrounding Devonte Wyatt (o27.5 at -120), we’ll take the OVER. However, we believe his defensive line partner, Jordan Davis (u15.5 at -120), will go higher than anticipated after the big fella dominated the combine like no one ever before him.
Nakobe Dean (o30.5 at -110) was a bonafide game wrecker for the Bulldogs, but linebacker is not a premium position and he’s on the small side. Instead, hammer the under on his teammate Quay Walker (u39.5 at -140), who many draft insiders believe will go ahead of Dean.
