Betting Odds On Raiders 1st Round Draft Picks

The Strip might be shut down in the Las Vegas Raiders’ new home but gambling doesn’t stop. So what are the odds the Silver and Black draft your favorite player in less than a week?

Mock drafts are abundant on every media outlet right now and every scenario is being explored. The Raiders are in a good position with the 12th and 19th overall picks this year, and there’s plenty of playmakers to choose from.

As with any sporting event, we know people like to have fun by putting some money on the action, and the 2020 NFL Draft will be no exception. Todd Dewey of the Las Vegas Review-Journal recently looked at the odds in regards to the Raiders’ picks.

“Alabama wideout Jerry Jeudy is the +180 favorite, followed by Oklahoma receiver CeeDee Lamb at +210 and Alabama wideout Henry Ruggs at 5-1. Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson is the 7-1 fourth choice.”

These odds seem pretty much aligned with what the sports media is putting out, even us. A receiver at 12 then a cornerback at 19. However, this will depend on who falls to the Raiders as well. Could they double-dip at receiver and really take their offense to the next level? At least on paper, they would. Dewey went on to elaborate on the issue of the top receivers possibly falling:

“Almost no one is predicting wide receivers in the top five and only a few people are predicting the top 10.”

Even if Dewey’s scenario plays it’s highly unlikely the Raiders could choose two of the top three receivers. This makes the cornerback selection at 19 much more plausible.

What do you think Raider Nation, let us know in the comments.
