Yes, it’s really a thing:
Most professional sports seasons have come to a halt, and the only form of distraction has been the start of the new NFL league year. The 2020 NFL Draft could receive inordinate viewership if things do not begin to normalize over the coming month.
The oddsmakers at William Hill released their initial prop bets for the event, which is scheduled to commence April 23.
Tua Tagovailoa: Over/under 4.5
The under will almost certainly hit if the Dolphins decide that he is the best option for them because it likely institutes a bidding war between the Chargers and Dolphins. In all likelihood, one of those two teams would move up to No. 3 overall with Detroit for the right to select Tagovailoa. The largest unknown in this entire conversation are the medical exams. If Tagovailoa is not progressing as desired, then the urgency to move up subsides.
Pick: Under 4.5
Justin Herbert: Over/under 6
The sense is that Los Angeles likes Tagovailoa more than Herbert so they would almost certainly leapfrog the Dolphins to secure the chance to add their quarterback of choice. In that scenario, the Dolphins would select Herbert at No. 5 overall, which cashes the under.
Pick: Under 6
Jordan Love: Over/under 12.5
It gets a bit dicey in regards to Love. The Panthers are no longer expected to be in the quarterback pool after signing Teddy Bridgewater. After the Bengals, Dolphins and Chargers, who would be in the mix for a quarterback? Las Vegas at No. 12 overall is a possibility. Odds support the over unless a team trades up, similar to the 2017 NFL Draft when the Texans and Chiefs moved up to take Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes, respectively. There is one other potential hurdle to clear: what if Washington takes Tagovailoa at No. 2 overall? Then, the top 10 would assuredly include four quarterbacks.
