2024 NFL Mock Draft: Full first-round picks, predictions for bettors



The NFL Draft isn’t just a game-changing time for teams.

It’s also become a bettors paradise where you can bet on every pick throughout all seven rounds.

This guide featured 32 bets ahead of Thursday’s first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, which begins at 8 p.m. ET, when the Bears are on the clock and will likely take Caleb Williams.

The previous two years of the sports bettors Mock Draft have each ended in multiple units of profit and we look to bring in a third straight strong year.

There’s growing chatter that Washington is set to take Jayden Daniels at No. 2, with the first true intrigue coming at pick No. 3 and who will take the plunge on North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye.

It could be the Giants or Vikings via trade, or the Patriots can stay where they are and draft Maye.

There is a lot of hearsay about NFL Draft betting, which is among the most fun activities for risky patrons each year.

There is no talent evaluation going on over here.

We look toward a combination of important words from Daniel Jeremiah, Peter Schrager, Albert Breer and many others to make our informed decisions with our cold, hard cash.

NFL Draft picks and predictions

It’s hard to predict trades in the NFL Draft.

If you want to bet on them, you can get over 6.5 trades at +140 on DraftKings.

I’m not buying that price for a second, considering it was 4.5 earlier in the week until some NFL insiders said they expected upwards of 10 trades in round one.

That’s hard to believe since a lot of this trade-centric optimism goes by the wayside once push comes to shove and teams are on the clock

Drake Maye goes No. 3 (-310, FanDuel)

It’s total mystery who takes him.

The Post’s Ryan Dunleavy has Big Blue drafting one of Maye or J.J. McCarthy.

Maye would be nice at pick No. 3 for the Giants, but regardless of who actually selects there, it should be Maye in that slot.

Brock Bowers to the Colts (+300, Bet365)

This could absolutely be via trade-up, but the Colts would be wise to grab Bowers to pair with their stud quarterback, Anthony Richardson.

Richardson and Bowers could be a powerful combination for years to come.

Betting on the NFL?

Bengals draft a wide receiver (+650, DraftKings)

Not going to claim to know which one, I currently have Adonai Mitchell in that slot. No mocksters have this one projected, but this is a shot worth taking here at long odds.

The Bengals’ Tee Higgins requested a trade this offseason and they’ll need to develop a wideout before long since it seems unlikely he sticks around in Cincinnatti.

Under 4.5 quarterbacks drafted in Round One (+280, DraftKings)

We’ve seen this song and dance before.

This time last year, Will Levis’ projection was over/under 3.5. He fell to the second round.

And, not for nothing, Levis had better intangibles than both Bo Nix and Michael Penix Jr.

J.J. McCarthy could fall to 11 and then we expect the Raiders and Broncos to waste a first-rounder in the teens on two older, flawed quarterbacks?

Under 4.5 quarterbacks selected in the first round is among the best bets for the night.
