The Commissioner has spoken and the 2020 NFL Draft will take place on April 23-25. That was enough for 5Dimes’ oddsmakers to drop NFL Draft betting odds. Keep reading for the best bets on who the 1st ten picks will be.
NFL Draft Odds For First Ten Team Teams Picking
1. Cincinnati (2-14)
The Bengals are in desperate need of a true franchise quarterback as they get set to move on from longtime starter Andy Dalton in Year 2 of the Zac Taylor era. The Bengals have already gone on record to say that they are selecting LSU signal-caller Joe Burrow who is a -6000 pick to be drafted first overall.
- Joe Burrow Drafted No. 1 -6000
- Joe Burrow Not Drafted No. 1 +2400
2. Washington (3-13)
Riverboat Rivera all but closed the door on bringing in Cam Newton but he did bolster his QB ranks by trading for Panther Kyle Allen to join Dwayne Haskins. That makes Ohio State All-American defensive end Chase Young, generally regarded as the best player in this draft, as the logical pick to go second overall. Young is not expected to fall past No. 2 overall, which is why he’s a whopping +1085 pick not to be drafted third overall.
- Chase Young Drafted No. 3 Overall +615
- Chase Young Not Drafted No. 3 overall -1085
3. Detroit (3-12-1)
The Lions need some help on defense after finishing 29th in defensive efficiency a year ago. Cornerback and defensive line help are Detroit’s top two needs and that makes Ohio State corner Jeff Okudah and Auburn interior defensive lineman Derrick Brown the top two picks to land with the Lions. Okudah is a -120 pick to be drafted over the fourth overall pick and a -110 selection to be drafted before the fourth pick.
- Jeff Okudah Drafted No. 3 Overall +160
- Jeff Okudah Not Drafted No. 3 Overall -195
4. NY Giants (4-12)
The G-Men need help on the offensive line in the worst way to both, open up holes for super-gifted running back Saquon Barkley while giving franchise signal-caller Daniel Jones some better pass protection. New York could also use some help on the defensive line, making Iowa offensive lineman Tristan Wirffs a smart choice.
- Tristan Wirffs 1st O-Lineman Drafted +170
- Tristan Wirffs Not 1st O-Lineman Drafted -195
5. Miami (5-11)
The Dolphins addressed some of their many needs on the defensive side of the ball in free agency, but their biggest need is at quarterback where Ryan Fitzpatrick is definitely a placeholder and not the long-term answer under center in Miami. With the Redskins, Lions, and Giants almost assuredly going for help on the defensive side of the ball, the Dolphins are in great shape to nab Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth overall pick. Here is a look at some of the odds on the former National Championship winning signal-caller.
- Tua Tagovailoa Drafted No. 3 Overall +140
- Tua TagovailoaNot Drafted No. 3 overall -170
- Tua Tagovailoa draft position over 3½ -120
- Tua Tagovailoa draft position under 3½ -110
6. LA Chargers (5-11)
A lot of folks think the Bolts should draft their future franchise quarterback here after parting ways with longtime franchise signal-caller Philip Rivers and I can see LA taking a chance on either Justin Herbert or Jordan Love. The Chargers also need a new starting left tackle and that could mean that former Georgia star Andrew Thomas is the pick at No. 6. Most experts think this spot is a bit too high for Love and Thomas, making Justin Herbert the pick for LA at No. 6.
- Justin Herbert second quarterback drafted +490
- Any other quarterback drafted second -775
- Jordan Love third quarterback drafted+295
- Any other quarterback drafted third -385
7. Carolina (5-11)
The Panthers don’t need a quarterback after signing Teddy Bridgewater in free agency, but they do need help on the interior of their defensive line as well as at cornerback and inside linebacker. If Auburn’s Derrick Brown is on the board, Carolina could address their d-line first, but I’m suspecting that former Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons will be the pick here to replace Luke Kuechly if he’s still on the board.
- Isaiah Simmons Drafted No. 3 Overall +850
- Isaiah Simmons Not Drafted No. 3 overall -1525
8. Arizona (5-10-1)
The Cardinals need a right tackle to help protect undersized franchise quarterback Kyler Murray and they could also use some help on the front seven defensively. I like Arizona to go for Louisville tackle Mekhi Becton if he’s still on the board or Alabama’s Jedrick Wills if he’s gone. The Cards could a pass-catching tight end, but I expect them to look to protect their prized franchise quarterback here.
- Mekhi Becton first offensive lineman drafted +150
- Any other off lineman drafted first -180
9. Jacksonville (6-10)
Jacksonville are in full rebuild mode after dumping the majority of the team that went to the Conference Finals in 2017. The Jags could go for Derrick Brown or Andrew Thomas If either is still available at No. 9 or they could look for their future franchise signal-caller in Jordan Love, even though Gardner Minshew II had a solid rookie campaign and is the expected starter moving forward. I’m going to say Jacksonville doesn’t blow it and lands Auburn defensive tackle Derrick brown here.
- Derrick Brown Drafted No. 3 Overall +2000
- Derrick Brown Not Drafted No. 3 overall -5000
10. Cleveland (6-10)
The Browns need an offensive tackle to help protect Baker Mayfield and that means Cleveland will choose whoever is left on the board here between Wirffs, Becton and Andrew Thomas, with Thomas ultimately being the pick here.
- Andrew Thomas draft position over 10½ -150
- Andrew Thomas draft position under 10½ +120
