Baltimore Ravens selecting an offensive player in the first round (+120)
We have talked about this before and it remains one of my favorite props for the draft. The Ravens actually take offensive players in the first round quite often and I think with the additions of Derek Wolfe and Calais Campbell this offseason on the defensive side, they will go offense early again.
Personally, I think they should take a wide receiver and Baylor’s Denzel Mims or Clemson’s Tee Higgins should both still be available after there is a run on receivers in the top half of the first round. I like the build of both Higgins and Mims as both are big wide receivers that can play opposite of Hollywood Brown who is an A-B guy. Either of these rooks could be used as a possession receiver to hopefully keep tight end Mark Andrews a little fresher.
The other option that Baltimore should entertain is Michigan offensive lineman Cesar Ruiz. Ruiz is a fantastic interior lineman who also played for coach John Harbaugh’s brother Jim in college. Since franchises have not been able to evaluate as they normally would prior to the draft, it would make sense.
Tristan Wirfs to be the first offensive lineman drafted (+100)
Even money what might the easiest prop bet on the board outside of Joe Burrow going first overall? Yes, please.
Wirfs is a 6’5, 320-pound tackle out Iowa who is a day-1 starter in the NFL. He is a former Big Ten Offensive lineman of the year and an All-American. There are other high-level linemen in this draft but Wirfs is the safest bet in my opinion.
Jeffery Okudah as the third overall selection (-140)
Normally, I would look for wagers where I don’t have to pay a vig but this one feels too easy. Okudah, along with Chase Young and Joe Burrow seem to have been atop mock drafts for weeks where almost every pick after #3 has had a different name slotted there each time.
Okudah is a big corner at 6’1 200lbs and comes from a school in Ohio State that churns out high-end cornerbacks at a rate similar to Jimmy Johns cranking out sandwiches. Since 1999, the Buckeyes have had 10 corners drafted in the first round. Okudah is a Jim Thorpe award winner and an All-American, he has good hands, speed and instincts. He has been described as “a GM’s dream prospect.”
You can make a few extra bucks by betting on Okudah being draft before the 4.5 selection as well. That wager pays out at (-135)
Alabama players taken in the first round: Over 5.5 (+130)
This one is a little dicey but I think that five of them are locks. Trevon Diggs becomes the player to make this a winning wager. You are going to have to sweat this one out but he should go in the last three or four selections in the first round.
Diggs is a former wide receiver and like Okudah is a big corner with speed.Again, this is probably the longest shot on the list but at +130 it is worth a little sprinkle.
Green Bay Packers select a defensive player with their first pick (+200)
In my humble opinion, they should go with a wide receiver here and if Brandon Aiyuk slides to them than this wager is probably toast but if he is gone I think they will go with a front seven defender. They won’t pick again until #62 but this draft has a ton of receiver depth and they may snatch up USC’s Michael Pittman or Notre Dame’s Chase Claypool in the second round.
