John Hyslop is back with a massive parlay for the NFL Draft. He breaks down his 8-leg parlay coming in at over +1000 odds for the first round of tonight's 2022 NFL Draft.

2022 NFL Draft Predictions: Smash This Expert's +1238 NFL Draft YOLO Parlay

I made a decision today when I woke up. I need to make a big ass YOLO parlay for the NFL Draft tonight. Why? Because the NFL Draft got us through some pretty tough times. Think back to 2020 when there were legit zero sports available to bet (besides table tennis). Guess what was available to bet on? That's right, the NFL Draft. We can't forget the people that were there for us in our time of need. Sure, the NBA playoffs are on and maybe we even bet them too. We can actually do whatever the hell we want. I'm just saying we should treat the NFL Draft with respect and the only way I know how to do that is by throwing down a YOLO parlay. It just feels right.

2022 NFL Draft Parlay Picks (+1238) (Bet $100 to Win $1238)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

  • Jahan Dotson Top 32 Pick
  • Kaiir Elam Top 32 Pick
  • Quay Walker Top 32 Pick
  • Daxton Hill Top 32 Pick
  • Zion Johnson Top 32 Pick
  • Treylon Burks Top 32 Pick
  • Tyler Smith Top 32 Pick
  • Trent McDuffie Top 32 Pick

So it looks like a lot to try to get eight people in the first round correct but is it? First off, we can just play a little process of elimination to see just how hard this really is. Trent McDuffie will clearly be gone before we get to the 20s. I don't know where he's going, but he's going somewhere. We're talking about possibly the third-best corner in the draft. The two guys ahead of him are going top 10 (probably).

Quay Walker is all anyone is talking about today (on draft day) so he seems very safe as well. Possibly early 20s along with Zion Johnson. That's three guys. Our list of eight is down to five. Seems easier now. It gets even easier when people are saying Kaiir Elam could be the fourth corner off the board. My guess is that would have to be the first round for anyone who wants him (Chiefs, Buccaneers).

Now that we're down to four people, it feels fun that Daxton Hill is one of them. He could easily go in the top 20. I'm not saying he will but what if Kyle Hamilton goes to Washington? That would mean the Eagles would be in the mix. Even if Hamilton doesn't go to Washington, Hill could still go to multiple teams later on (Buffalo or Cincinnati). We're down to a three-leg parlay now.

The three-leg parlay will include Treylon Burks and Jahan Dotson though so keep that in mind. I feel like those guys aren't really questions. Everybody and their brother is putting Burks on the Packers so there is that. When it comes to Dotson he kind of feels like a Chief. All of the receivers will be gone by then (London, Olave, Williams, Wilson, Burks) so it will be time for the Chiefs to be somebody.

That leaves just Tyler Smith. He's only -140 to take straight but I feel like pairing him with all these guys makes him +1238. That's just how my brain works. My theory is the tackle situation is rough after this guy. I am not 100% sure he is a first-round pick in most drafts but this isn't most drafts. This is this draft and in this draft, I could see multiple teams grabbing him since the other guys will be long gone. My best guess is the New Orleans Saints. If that happens, we just hit a +1238 parlay on a guy calling out names. What a world.
