NFL Draft Betting Odds
The 2023 NFL Draft will be held in Kansas City between 27-29 April. As always, attention has been focused on the number one overall pick and we’ve seen some twists and turns with the NFL Draft betting markets already.
The Chicago Bears were the wildcard holding the 1st pick. The initial consensus was that they would take Jalen Carter with that selection if they stood pat, but they’ve since traded the pick to the Carolina Panthers and Carter has started to slide down many boards after various issues in the build-up to the Draft.
The only reason for the Panthers trading up to number one is to take their QB of the future, and that’s reflected in the current NFL Draft betting odds.

1st Overall Selection Odds
CJ Stroud is the clear favorite to be taken first on Draft night, but there are more variables when you look further down the board. The odds are currently favoring the Texans to take the 2nd best QB available when they pick second:

3rd Overall Selection Odds
The odds become far more interesting as we move on to the third overall pick. The Arizona Cardinals currently hold this pick and currently have their long-term franchise QB in Kyler Murray, but this would be a prime spot for a potential trade. The Colts will pick 4th and need a QB, so any particularly needy teams may have to move up to three to get their man.
That’s reflected by the odds favoring a defensive pick from the Cardinals who currently hold the spot, but a QB being taken here appears to be the next-most likely option.
