NFL rosters will start taking shape for the upcoming season with the 2024 Draft. This will be the 89th annual meeting of National Football League franchises to select newly eligible players. The draft is scheduled to be held around Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza in Detroit, Michigan, on April 25–27.

This year, there are plenty of intriguing prospects at the quarterback position, and in other key areas too. Bovada Sportsbook is the place to go for all of your 2024 NFL Draft odds. Here are some names to keep an eye on. For a full list of NFL odds and Draft props, click here.


This year’s NFL Draft odds start with a player who is probably going to be one of the most unanimous No. 1 projections in years – USC’s Caleb Williams.

He is -5000 to be the first pick overall and was already a big favorite to go number one even before the college season started. The Chicago Bears are ready to take the USC-standout and shipped out their starter Justin Fields in the offseason. Williams won the Heisman in his first year at USC, and last season he had 30 touchdowns to just five interceptions and passed for 3,600 yards.



Another electrifying quarterback is LSU’s Jayden Daniels. NFL Draft odds as the potential number one pick have Daniels at +1200. The better option might be to pick him to go second at -210. If you think that the Bears are wary of Williams’ supposed request to have equity in the team that drafts him, then the +1200 on Daniels might be worth a shot.

Daniels is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, leading the entire nation in touchdowns with 50, while compiling almost 5,000 total yards, including over 1,000 yards rushing. However, some Draft experts could see him slipping all the way down to the ninth pick, so be careful.


The odds-on favorite at Bovada to go number three in the 2024 NFL Draft is North Carolina’s Drake Maye at -140. He lacks a bit of the star power and athleticism of Williams and Daniels, but he threw for over 4,000 yards two years ago and even led the Tar Heels in rushing. In 2023, his numbers dropped, but he wasn’t 100% healthy either.

The ankle injury he was dealing with shouldn’t scare off too many GMs, as all the top sites have Maye in or around their top 5 picks for this year’s draft. He’s the type of pocket passer that has long been coveted in the NFL. Keep an eye out for trades also – Maye could convince a number of teams to move up, while letting the teams with the top spots move down a pick or two.


Let’s move on from the quarterbacks and talk about one of the best wide receivers to come out of the Draft in years. At leas the team that picks him, hopes so. Marvin Harrison, Jr. out of Ohio State comes from a pretty good receiving pedigree – his dad, Marvin Harrison, Sr. is in the NFL Hall of Fame. Junior won the 2023 Biletnikoff Award as the most outstanding college receiver in the country also. Harrison, Jr. is -190 to go fourth in the Draft.


Nabers is the latest wide receiver to come out of the WR factory known as LSU. Recent grads like Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase and others are already putting up big numbers, and Nabers looks to be following in their fleet footsteps. Nabers lost out to Harrison Jr. for the Biletnikoff award by one single vote in 2023. He is currently +190 to go fifth, and if you think he can jump ahead of Harrison Jr., his NFL Draft odds to go fourth jump up to +1600.


If you’re looking for other ways to play the NFL Draft game – Bovada has you covered. Bet by position, team, a combination of both and lots more. Take the Denver Broncos for example. They unloaded Russell Wilson and with their 12th pick they won’t get near Williams, Maye, or Daniels. But Bo Nix might be around, and he’s currently at -160 to go to Denver. J.J. McCarthy is +500 to be a Bronco if Nix is snapped up sooner.

You can even wager on the exact order of the top three picks, with big paydays if you make the exact right picks to kick off the draft. A Williams/Daniels/Harrison Jr 1-2-3 bet is currently at +2200, for example.

If you want to spread your NFL Draft odds around and you prefer to not have to pick an exact spot where a player will go, you can also grab a player or two that you think will be taken in the Top 10. Top QB prospects like Bo Nix and Michael Penix Jr. could slide into the top 10, and their NFL Draft odds for being somewhere in that group are sitting at +650 and +800 respectively.

The categories go on and on, so head over to Bovada Sportsbook and get set for the 2024 NFL Draft.
