• Trevor Lawrence is the super heavy favorite to be selected first overall with -10000 odds.
  • Zach Wilson has -350 odds to be selected second overall.
  • Ja’Marr Chase has -200 odds to be the first receiver selected.

CLEVELAND – The 2021 NFL Draft is slated to take place on April 29, 2021, from Cleveland Ohio.

Legal sports betting sites have different NFL Draft odds such as who will be selected with the first two picks as well as who will be the first player selected at both running back and at wide receiver.

First Pick In The 2021 NFL Draft Odds

  • Trevor Lawrence -10000
  • Zach Wilson +1000
  • Justin Fields +2000
  • Penei Sewell +3000

Starting with the first overall pick in the draft, it belongs to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Bettors here should make no mistake in choosing anyone else but Trevor Lawrence. He is 100% the best quarterback in all of college football and the Jaguars are in desperate need of a quarterback to come in and make a difference right away.

For those that think Justin Fields could potentially go first because of Urban Meyer, shut those thoughts down immediately as Lawrence’s NFL odds  will be some of the easiest 1% return ever made.

Odds For NFL Draft Second Pick

  • Zach Wilson -350
  • Justin Fields +400
  • Trey Lance +700
  • Penei Sewell +1200
  • Trevor Lawrence +1600
  • Ja’Marr Chase +2200
  • Devonta Smith +5000

The second pick in the NFL Draft belongs to the New York Jets.

The Jets have been rumored in plenty of talks regarding their starting quarterback, Sam Darnold. It is believed that the Jets have been trying to unload Darnold for some time now and look to draft a quarterback in 2021.

However, that may not be the case anymore as it is rumored that the Jets asking price is just too high.

With that said, if the Jets are unable to trade him, he will continue being their starting quarterback and that would leave the Jets to work on another issue which is their offensive line. They can do so by drafting Penei Sewell who is believed to be the best option at his position.

2021 NFL Draft – First WR Drafted Odds

  • Ja’Marr Chase -200
  • Devonta Smith +300
  • Jaylen Waddle +300

Ja’Marr Chase is favored to go first even though he sat out the 2020 season over COVID-19 concerns. Chase put up 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns in his 2019 campaign which certainly backs up his case for the first receiver off the boards.

However, bettors should not be laying action on Chase’s odds just yet. Devonta Smith is not to be forgotten either as he is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner having put up 1,856 yards and 23 touchdowns in his 2020 campaign.

That alone should have bettors thinking about betting on the underdog in Smith to be the first receiver taken.

2021 NFL Draft – First RB Drafted Odds

  • Najee Harris -110
  • Travis Etienne +110
  • Javonte Williams +500

Favored to be the first running back off the board is Alabama’s Najee Harris and rightfully so. Harris has been a man on a mission as he has recorded two straight seasons with over 1,200 rushing yards.

However, he made a huge jump in touchdowns from one college football season to the next as he went from 13 touchdowns in 2019 to 26 in 2020.

He is a pure power back and could fill the needs of any team. With that said, bettors should not miss out on his odds before they shorten any more.

Following Harris is Clemson’s Travis Etienne who has what it takes to be an explosive back in the league, but his draft stock has taken a bit of a hit after a down year in 2020.

His stats went down in every category as he went from 1,614 yards to 914, from 19 touchdowns to 14 and from 7.8 yards per carry to 5.4. Being that he saw a slight dip, bettors should not make this mistake and miss out on a cash opportunity with Harris.
