LAS VEGAS – The NFL Draft is incoming and with it comes a bevy of betting lines and odds surrounding the big event. Alabama Crimson Tide QB Tua Tagovailoa now has the shortest odds to be the second pick in the draft.
Tua Tagovailoa’s odds have shortened following the physical showing he has fully recovered from the dislocated hip and posterior wall fracture he suffered last season. He also gained favor from a workout with Trent Dilfer who compared the QB to the likes of Dan Marino.
Currently, the Miami Dolphins hold the number five pick, with Tagovailoa looking like the decisive choice.
Tua Tagovailoa Odds
LSU Tigers QB Joe Burrow is a foregone conclusion as the number one pick in the NFL Draft. But, online sportsbooks are still taking action on which QB will be the second selected in the draft as well.
NFL bettors are showing confidence in who will be that selection. Tua Tagovailoa comes in with the shortest odds to be the second QB selected following a slew of good news during this offseason.
2nd QB Drafted
- Tua Tagovailoa -205
- Justin Herbert +150
- Jordan Love +2800
- Field +3300
Teams were hesitant on drafting the Alabama QB due to his hip injury, but Tagovailoa has since been cleared, passing the Miami Dolphins physical. This shows why sports betters are leaning towards him to be the next best QB to be selected.
Tua also gained a lot of favor following a workout with Trent Dilfer. Dilfer sang Tua’s praises following the workout, also shortening his draft odds.
“If he would have never gotten hurt there would have been no discussion about who the best player in the draft is,” said Dilfer.
“He throws the football better than anyone throws the football. He throws better than Aaron Rodgers and Dan Marino. Whoever gets him wins the draft because you are getting a Hall of Fame player.”
With his health in check and a great testimonial from a former NFL quarterback, it’s no wonder why legal sports betting sites have shifted their odds more heavily on Tagovailoa. However, as many NFL fans know, anything can happen on draft night.
