2021 NFL Draft betting recap: Odds, prop bets, results

April 30

The NFL Draft is one of the biggest days on the sports calendar, and that's doubly true for those who like to make a wager or two.

Yet you don't have to be a gambling diehard to place a bet on the draft. In fact, according to one oddsmaker, just one specific market on this year's draft had seen more wagers than the MLB and NBA MVPs combined – which means that fans of all kinds were looking for a little extra rooting interest Thursday night.

Given that there are hundreds and hundreds of different prop bets available around the draft, trying to track the most meaningful can be difficult, and that's before you throw in how the lines move over the course of the day.

That's where we come in. Here are the results on the most-bet props on the board for the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, as well as odds on Aaron Rodgers' next team in the wake of reports the future Hall of Famer has told the Packers he's done with the team (with all odds via FOX Bet as of 8 p.m. ET on Thursday).

First player selected
Trevor Lawrence: -20000 (bet $10 to win $.05, plus your $10 back)

Result: Lawrence to the Jaguars (-20000)

Fun fact: At some books, Lawrence was a -100000 favorite to be the first pick, meaning a $10 bet would have netted you one cent of profit. One single penny.
