The 2023 NFL Draft is one week away and BetAnySports.eu Sportsbook is prepped and ready to go. If you’re going to bet on the NFL Draft in search of really good values, we have a few selections you will want to consider. Some bets are high-percentage bets, but these picks are a little more weighted toward price and getting great value, especially the first two.
Jaxon Smith-Njigba In The Top 10 Odds At BetAnySports.eu NFL Draft: +700
Smith-Njigba won’t go in the top seven, but he could certainly land at 8, 9 or 10. Last year, Drake London went to the Atlanta Falcons at No. 8. In most years in the modern draft era (the 21st century, especially the past decade), there is often a receiver who gets picked in the top 10. Keep in mind that with the passing game being so central to how NFL teams and offenses operate, there is a reasonably good chance that one team will fall in love with Smith-Njigba at No. 8, 9 or 10.
You wouldn’t want to bet the ranch on this, but at the listed price, it’s certainly worth a play. Keep in mind that some teams might trade up for a piece they want. A prime receiver such as Smith-Njigba certainly fits the profile of that kind of player, someone a team would trade up to get in the draft.
Jalen Carter At No. 6 Draft Pick Odds At BetAnySports.eu: +380
The word on the street is that Carter, the Georgia defensive lineman, will go to the Seattle Seahawks at pick No. 5, but it’s not a stone-cold lock that the Seahawks will in fact take him. Jalen Carter has had some off-field troubles, and there has been some speculation that he might fall a little lower on draft night. However, if the Seahawks don’t take him at No. 5, he will almost certainly be the best and most talented player left on the board at No. 6.
Teams often get to the draft and look at foremost needs, but not all draft picks should be made based on needs. The “best player available” philosophy also makes perfect sense. Nearly every team – especially a team drafting in the top six (which isn’t very good in nearly all instances) – can use an elite defensive lineman such as Carter. If the Seahawks don’t take him at No. 5, he is sitting there at No. 6 and could cash a +380 ticket. That’s worth a play.
Bijan Robinson In The Top 10 Odds At BetAnySports.eu NFL Draft: +125
Bijan Robinson is a running back, and we all know that teams aren’t supposed to take running backs in the first round, but Robinson is so supremely athletic and explosive that an NFL team might use him as a hybrid player – sometimes getting carries, often being used as a receiver, maybe also as a kick returner. There is so much upside here that a team will take him at 9 or 10. Like Smith-Njigba, he’s the kind of player a team will trade up to get.
Drafted Earlier: Michael Mayer Or Dalton Kincaid? Odds At BetAnySports.eu: Mayer at -150
This is less of a value pick and more of a likelihood-based pick. It’s not plus money, but it’s very hard to imagine that Mayer – with his Notre Dame history and bigger name recognition – won’t get taken as the first tight end in the draft ahead of Kincaid. It’s true that Kincaid is very talented and will make a great tight end for an NFL team, but he played in the Pac-12 and probably won’t get quite as much respect as Mayer will. Mayer should go first.
