Alabama's Bryce Young (right) and Will Anderson are now sizable favorites to go first and second in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The most exciting day of the NFL offseason is finally here. Let’s see who clients are backing to go in the top 3, along with context from Sports Trader JackMeenan.
Tickets: Bryce Young 29.2%, Will Levis 24.8%, C.J. Stroud 20.1%
Handle: Young 51.4%, Stroud 18.4%, Levis 17.3%
ASK THE TRADER: “Despite the recent surge on Kentucky’s Will Levis to be the first name called, the market has settled back, and Bryce Young is now almost a certainty at -5000. The book has laid plenty on both Levis and Anthony Richardson to be called first, but we are confident that there will be no surprises.”
Tickets: Stroud 27.0%, Will Anderson 18.6%, Tyree Wilson 15.9%
Handle: Levis 31.1%, Wilson 23.9%, Anderson 21.8%
ASK THE TRADER: “The market for the second pick has been subject to the most uncertainty and movement, with so many rumors on what the Texans may do. However, the betting market showed its thoughts on the situation this morning, with Will Anderson surging from +300 to as heavy as -375. But this is definitely still a spot to watch for some late market movement.”
Tickets: Anderson 26.3%, Paris Johnson Jr. 19.7%, Stroud 9.2%
Handle: Anderson 29.8%, Johnson Jr. 28.7%, Wilson 17.0%
ASK THE TRADER: “With C.J. Stroud sitting atop at +125, the market seems to favor the possibility of Arizona trading out. We laid a significant amount on Paris Johnson Jr. to be selected here midweek, however this pick has the widest range of outcomes from the top 3. My dark horse is Will Levis (+900), and I would be on the lookout for teams looking to jump the Colts at #4 to get their guy.”
Oregon has had top-10 picks the past three drafts in Kayvon Thibodeaux, Penei Sewell and Justin Herbert. Will Christian Gonzalez make it four?
It wouldn’t be draft day without all the uncertainty. But we’ll still make our picks for which star prospect winds up being the first picked at his position.
Tight End – Michael Mayer (-200) ✅ vs. Dalton Kincaid (+150) – Notre Dame tight ends are a safe bet. Mayer is the most complete tight end, while Kincaid needs work as a blocker.
Offensive Line – Paris Johnson Jr. (-400) ✅ vs. Peter Skoronski (+300) – The magnifique Johnson is slated to be a tackle, whereas Skoronski is projected more as a guard. We’ll side with the o-line’s more valuable spot.
Cornerback – Devon Witherspoon (-350) vs. Christian Gonzalez (+230) ✅ – Gonzalez has the height advantage (6-foot-1), and his size/speed combo is worth a bet at plus odds.
Defensive player– Will Anderson (-334) ✅ vs. Tyree Wilson (+230) – It’s hard to be more dominant than the Alabama edge rusher, who notched 27.5 sacks over his last two CFB seasons.
KEY STATS: Trae Young is scoring 29 PPG after putting up 15.4 per contest in last year’s postseason. Celtics are shooting 51.5% this series, third-highest of all playoff teams.
TRENDING: Boston has covered in seven of its last nine games overall, and Atlanta is 2-5 ATS in its previous seven. The over is 7-1 in the Celtics’ last eight road contests and 5-0 in the Hawks’ last five at home.
INSIGHTS: With 88% of the spread handle on the road favorite, it’s not a surprise this line has moved from Celtics -6 to -7. The moneyline is even more lopsided, with a whopping 93% of the handle on the C’s.
TOP PROP: Young drilled five 3s in Game 4, including the game-winner. Young over 2.5 triples (+100) has drawn the most tickets and handle for any prop.
