Malik Nabers NFL Draft Odds: When Will Malik Nabers Be Selected In The 2024 NFL Draft?

The 2024 NFL Draft is right around the corner, meaning we're focusing on top prospects and their NFL Draft odds across various online sportsbooks.

Malik Nabers is a talented wideout coming out of LSU, helping quarterback Jayden Daniels win the 2023 Heisman Trophy. Nabers is 6-1, 188 pounds but has blazing speed, sure hands, and tripled his numbers with the Tigers in 2023. Winding up with 89 receptions, 1,569 receiving yards, and 14 touchdowns, Nabers' talent is undeniable.

The NFL is increasingly an offensive-driven league, so there's going to be plenty of teams eyeing Nabers as their top prospect to boost their offense heading into the 2024-25 NFL season. NFL handicapper and draft analyst Matt MacKay is back to offer betting insight to make smart wagers on where Nabers will wind up being selected in the 2024 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

MALIK NABERS NFL DRAFT ODDS

Malik Nabers' NFL Draft odds don't get out of the 100-1 range until the fourth overall pick when Arizona is on the clock. The Cardinals would likely be the favorite to draft Nabers, if it weren't for Marvin Harrison Jr. also being available in this loaded rookie wide receiver class.

Nabers starts to see his odds grow shorter with the fourth overall draft pick, going from 100-1 or longer, up to 20-1 with the Arizona Cardinals on the board. Assuming that Arizona opts to draft Harrison Jr. to give Kyler Murray a top-tier weapon on the perimeter, this leaves the Los Angeles Chargers with many different prospects to draft at fifth overall.

Nabers at 20-1 signals that he's the clear-cut second wideout behind Harrison Jr., who is currently -220 odds to be taken fourth overall by Arizona. Nabers' market heats up with the fifth and sixth overall picks.

NFL DRAFT ODDS - FIFTH OVERALL PICK

2024 NFL DRAFT PROSPECTODDS
MALIK NABERS+230
MARVIN HARRISON JR.+300
J.J. MCCARTHY+450
JOE ALT+475
DRAKE MAYE+1600
JAYDEN DANIELS+2200
JC LATHAM+2800
ROME ODUNZE+2900

Jim Harbaugh's arrival as the new head coach for the Los Angeles Chargers resulted in the team essentially dumping all of their offensive skilled players this offseason. Justin Herbert remains, but we've heard Harbaugh speak glowingly of building an offense in the trenches.

These comments likely led to Joe Alt, the top offensive tackle prospect out of Notre Dame, rocketing up to +475 to be drafted with the fifth overall pick by the Chargers. However, without Mike Williams and Keenan Allen in the wide receiving corps, Nabers fits the bill to be taken here by Los Angeles at No. 5.

Nabers is a marginal favorite over Marvin Harrison Jr., who should be off the board after the fourth overall draft pick. Nabers is +230 odds to be taken fifth overall, while J.J. McCarthy, Harbaugh's quarterback at Michigan, is being linked to the Chargers at No. 5 with +450 odds. Alt is the final prospect with odds shorter than 5-1 for the fifth overall draft pick.

NFL DRAFT ODDS - SIXTH OVERALL PICK

2024 NFL DRAFT PROSPECTODDS
MALIK NABERS+170
ROME ODUNZE+300
J.J. MCCARTHY+550
JOE ALT+850
MARVIN HARRISON JR. +1200

Nabers is +170 and the favorite to be drafted with the sixth overall pick by the New York Giants. The Giants have one of the most underwhelming wide receiving corps in the league and would greatly benefit from Nabers' arrival.

It's why he's the favorite at +170 odds, however, Rome Odunze out of Washington isn't far behind at +300 odds with the sixth overall pick. This wager on Nabers at +170 is predicated on what the Los Angeles Chargers do at No. 5. They have needs along the offensive line, as well as their wide receiving corps, so we could gain some good value by betting on Nabers at +230 odds to go fifth overall.

I like Nabers' fit and value with the Giants at six though, which is why oddsmakers have his shortest odds at +170 with the No. 6 overall pick. I don't hate Nabers' +230 odds at all, but it's difficult to figure out exactly how Harbaugh and first-year GM Joe Horitz want to build the team.

NFL DRAFT ODDS - 1ST WIDE RECEIVER DRAFTED

2024 NFL DRAFT PROSPECTODDS
MARVIN HARRISON JR. -1200
MALIN NABBERS+650
ROME ODUNZE+3400
KEON COLEMAN+7500
LADD MCCONKEY+7500
TROY FRANKLIN+7500

Our final NFL Draft betting market for Nabers focuses on his odds as the first wide receiver selected in the 2024 NFL Draft. It's pretty clear that Marvin Harrison Jr. is going to be the top wideout taken off of the board by Arizona, however, if this doesn't happen, then we're getting a massive value on Nabers at +650 odds.

This could realistically happen if Arizona, who has an aggressive general manager, opts to trade out of the fourth overall pick for more draft picks and compensation to build their team. In this scenario, Nabers gets his best opportunity to return value at nearly 7-1 odds, although it would still be surprising to see him selected over Harrison Jr. as the top wide receiver in this draft class.

Sprinkling on Nabers to be the first wide receiver drafted warrants no more than a 0.10 unit wager, although stranger things have happened. Expect the Los Angeles Chargers, New York Giants, or Tennessee Titans at number seven to wind up boosting their offense with Nabers, meaning he'll likely be taken anywhere from 5th-7th overall on Thursday night.
