Marcus Mariota is the Heavy Betting Favorite to Be Taken 2nd Overall in the NFL Draft

By Jason Lisk

When I ran my wisdom of the crowds mock draft, Marcus Mariota had a very slim chance of slipping as far as the #6 pick. He was gone at the 2nd overall pick in over half the simulations.

The odds being offered by Bovada are even more heavily slanted toward Mariota going 2nd overall. Mariota is currently listed as -500 to be taken in that spot. Leonard Williams has the next best odds, at +300.

Other interesting prop bets:

Todd Gurley is one of the most divisive and interesting stories heading into the draft, lots of buzz, plenty of talent, and coming off the knee injury. He’s listed with an over/under of pick number 14 1/2.

Amari Cooper’s over/under is listed at 6, and Kevin White’s at 7. Cooper is expected to go first but those two are very close.

You can get +200 on Adrian Peterson being traded before the end of the draft.
