Quinn Ewers has also seen a shortening of odds, going from +1,400 to +750 in the space of a week. New to the market is Alabama QB Jalen Milroe who checks in at +2,000.

How to bet on the 2025 NFL Draft

Sportsbooks will post odds for the player to go first overall in the draft as soon as the previous year's draft is over. Once the college football season begins in September, these odds could change weekly depending on how players are performing as well as the evaluations of trusted draftniks such as Mel Kiper Jr.

In addition, this NFL futures bet may also take into account the team needs of the worst team(s) in the NFL.

After the NCAA football season is over, NFL Draft odds will solidify after key events such as the underclassmen declaration deadline, the NFL Scouting Combine and pro days. In the weeks leading up to the draft, sportsbooks will offer more NFL Draft prop bets. 

Understanding NFL Draft odds

The odds of going first overall in the NFL Draft will typically look like this:

  • Shedeur Sanders +550

This means that if you placed a $100 bet on Sanders, you would win $500 if the Buffaloes QB goes first overall in 2025. When you get closer to the draft and there is a consensus on who will go first overall, you might see a player with a minus sign (-) ahead of his odds, like this:

  • Carson Beck -550

This means you'd have to bet $550 to win $100 on Beck being drafted first overall.
