2022 NFL Draft: Breaking Down the Event

The 2022 NFL Draft is quite possibly one of the most unpredictable drafts in the last decade of the NFL. There are no set 'locks' for the first overall picks, and the bookies favorite to be drafted first overall continues to flip-flop leading up to tonight.

If the NFL Draft was to occur immediately post-Super Bowl, Aidan Hutchinson would be donning his new colors as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hutchinson was the consistent Vegas favorite to be picked first up until just a couple of days ago when the ex-Bulldog Edge Travon Walker suddenly overtook him in the race.

The former Georgia Bulldogs star had his odds cut dramatically from a massive +2800 to the current -450, as posted on DraftKings sportsbook. What could have caused this massive odds dip? Unfortunately, we may never know. As it stands, Las Vegas gives the Jaguars an above 75% chance of drafting Travon Walker with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft.

One of the most interesting changes from the 2021 NFL Draft, compared to tonight's event, is the lack of highly sought-after Quarterbacks. Five Quarterbacks were selected in the first 15 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, yet tonight there are no field generals expected to go in the first five picks. Who will be the first Quarterback off the board? And more importantly... where will he land?

NFL Draft Betting Odds: Betting on the Draft in Ontario

Users in the Ontario sports betting market are probably aware that the NFL Draft has become a yearly betting extravaganza, with millions of sports bettors wagering on everything from who the first-overall pick will be, to who will be so lucky to be crowned Mr. Irrelevant. If this is your first time betting on the NFL Draft in Ontario, let us walk you through some of the most common bet types, and how you can maximize your wins tonight.

First Overall Pick

Betting on the first overall pick is like ripping off a bandaid. Within 15 minutes of the 2022 NFL Draft beginning, you will have either won or lost your first wager. It's a pretty thrilling start to your NFL Draft betting experience either way.

Last year, betting on the first-round pick was pretty boring. Trevor Lawrence being selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars was all but carved into stone on the Draft night and many sportsbooks had his odds set at -10000. This year is a little different, and the top spot has been anything but static.

Below are the current First Overall Pick odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook

  1. Travon Walker (-450)
  2. Aidan Hutchinson (+400)
  3. Iken Ekwonu (+750)
  4. Evan Neal (+2000)
  5. Kayvon Thibodeaux (+5000)

Betting on the First overall pick in the NFL Draft is a pretty simple process. All that matters is that the player you pick is drafted first! Betting on this market tends to be slightly easier, as there are no picks/trades happening before that could disrupt your draft order. Sign up to BetMGM below and place your first overall pick wager with one of the biggest sportsbooks in the Ontario sports betting market.

Team to Draft Player Markets

Another simple market to bet on that can be really fun if you are a fan of a team picking in the later rounds is the 'Team to Draft a Specific Player' market. Rather than betting on a specific player to be drafted on a specific pick number (Eg Travon Walker to be picked 2nd), you are betting on a specific player landing with a specific team. Lets take a look at the latest Malik Willis Draft odds below to give a good example of the lines available.

Team to draft Kenny Picks Odds:

  1. PIT Steelers (+175)
  2. DET Lion (+350)
  3. SEA Seahawks (+350)
  4. NO Saints (+450)
  5. CAR Panthers (+500)

The above selections are the teams with the top odds at drafting Malik Willis, but if you have some insider information, or want to take a flier on a certain team you can bet on all 32 teams, right up to the Buffalo Bills at +10000. This is a slightly riskier market to bet on, but it can be truly profitable if landed. Why not sign up to Bet365 Ontario below and place your NFL Draft wager on their amazing Ontario platform?

Team to Draft a Specific Position Market

If you know your favorite team is dead-set on getting a specific position, but you are unsure of who will land with them, betting on a team to draft a specific position market is perfect for you. Rather than picking the exact player to be drafted by a team, most people wager on which position their team will draft. This option opens up the market slightly, whilst still providing great odds, especially when betting on teams picking later in the draft.

Let's use the Arizona Cardinals as an example. Below are the Arizona Cardinals' odds to pick a certain position in the NFL Draft.

  1. Wide Receiver +225
  2. Offensive Lineman +250
  3. DL/Edge +300
  4. Defensive back +300
  5. Linebacker +800

Place your NFL Draft wager with Caesars Ontario and feel like an Emperor tonight.

Draft Prop Markets
