Sam Darnold, Not Josh Allen Is Favorite To Go No. 1 Overall
Allen is not the betting favorite to go No. 1 overall.
Who do the betting sites like?
It is seemingly more and more likely that a quarterback will go No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft, but the question is which one. Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has been linked to the top pick to go to the Cleveland Browns.
However, those who place odds on things like who will be the top overall pick do not agree on Allen going No. 1 overall to Cleveland.
BetOnline recently released its odds for who will be the first overall pick in the NFL Draft and Darnold is a pretty solid favorite.
- Sam Darnold -250
- Josh Allen +175
- Saquon Barkley +500
- Josh Rosen +1000
- Baker Mayfield +2000
Matt McEwan of Sports Betting Dime has Darnold with the best odds, followed by UCLA QB Rosen then comes Allen in third.
- Sam Darnold, QB, USC: 1/1
- Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA: 4/1
- Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming: 6/1
This is also dependent on who owns tht top overall pick but these odds are based on the Browns who for its franchise history (in its second incarnation) are in desparate need of a high-quality signal caller. Expect them to take one of these three quarterbacks.
