The NFL Combine is here and no player is drawing more attention than Bryce Young.
There has been controversy surrounding his height and weight leading into the combine. Some people believe that if he doesn’t weigh in over 200 pounds, his draft stock could potentially drop.
But, as has been the case the past few years, the best indicator for who will be drafted first overall is the betting odds. Despite the height and weight concerns, Young is the odds on favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick.
Let’s take a look at the odds.
NFL Draft No. 1 overall pick odds
Young is set as the betting favorite at -175, which is an implied probability of 63.64% that he will be the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson, Will Anderson, and Will Levis are the next four names on the odds list.
With quarterbacks taking four of the top five spots on the odds list to go first overall, it begs the question of whether or not the Chicago Bears will trade their first overall pick. As of now, it looks like the Bears will likely trade the pick to a team looking to draft a quarterback.
With that being said, the quarterback selected first overall may not be Young. If his measurements don’t match up, you could see a shift in the odds. If you think some one else is going to be taken first overall, I’d recommend betting sooner rather than later.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
