PointsBet has an immense amount of the NFL Draft Odds available. Betting options for the 1st pick, odds which team will draft Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins, plus much more are available now.
Kyler Murray #1 Pick Odds Boost
This is a classic example of why PointsBet sportsbook is attracting so many new players in NJ. They have turned an unattractive bet into what looks to be a sure thing. Kyler Murray was listed at -1000 to be the #1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Meaning you need to lay $1000 to win $100. With the line “boosted”, bettors can now just lay $100 for their $100 ROI when Murray is taken #1 by the Arizona Cardinals.
There are once again intriguing storylines surrounding this year’s draft as there are several teams with needs at the quarterback position could trade up. Rumors abound that the Raiders LOVE Kyler Murray and may trade up to the Cardinals #1 position. The Cardinals sit in an envious position with Josh Rosen at QB and the potential to gain more draft picks via a trade.
This looks like something you want to move ASAP….@PointsBetUSA just boosted Kyler Murray #NFLDraft #1 pick odds from -1000 to +100!

PointsBet NFL Draft Odds on First TE
PointsBet currently has odds set for the first TE taken off the board with nine choices to choose from. This is a fun NFL Draft prop bet each year as there are not a lot of TE’s to choose from. Let’s take a look at some of the odds and how you can potentially profit.
T.J Hockenson -251
Noah Fant +160
Irv Smith Jr. +1400
Jace Sternberger +5000
Kaden Smith +10000
Foster Moreau +10000
Kahale Warring +10000
Isaac Nauta +10000
Dawson Knox +10000
T.J Hockenson NFL Draft Odds (-251)
If you’re going with the favorite tight end to be taken first, it’s Hockenson out of Iowa. He, along with teammate Noah Fant, is regarded as the top two favorites at this position for the 2019 class. The reviews on Hockenson are resounding and people are excited about his dynamic skill set and his ability to be an elite blocker. While the tight end position is normally looked upon as a first-round selection, Hockenson looks to be a lock for this draft.
Many analysts list Hockenson as ready to step into any offense and be a difference maker, even at the tender age of 21. When looking at his scouting reports, many people throw something in as to not leave it blank. He’s projected to be not only an offensive juggernaut but boast a huge presence with his blocking skills.
While we have a number of mock drafts to digest, many of Hockenson going just outside the top 10. The last time a tight end was selected that high was in 2014 when Eric Ebron was selected 10th overall by the Lions.
Through his two years at Iowa, Hockenson made 73 receptions for 1080 yards and nine touchdowns. This was even an offense that frequently ran with two tight ends with Fant. Hockenson was once thought of as the number two option behind Fant but his production pushed him up to number one status.

Noah Fant NFL Draft Odds (+160)
The other elite tight end coming out of Iowa is Fant. He ended the combine with the fastest 40 amongst all tight ends at 4.5. Caleb Wilson was second at 4.56. Boasting some stellar speed and big playmaking ability, the odds have him set as quite the consolation prize to whichever team doesn’t land Hockenson.
Through three years at Iowa, Fant amassed 78 receptions for 1083 yards and 19 touchdowns. 11 of those touchdowns came in his sophomore year. If it wasn’t for Hockenson, Fant would likely be garnering much more praise and an earlier draft position. Mainly praised for his offensive abilities, Fant seems to be an underrated blocker as well, as he wasn’t asked to do as much with Hockenson on the field.
With how heavily favored Hockenson is, Fant feels as if he has little chance to be taken off the board first. While anything is certainly possible, teams near the end of the first round would likely be the ones to scoop up the second tight end off the board. The Raiders and Patriots occupy the 27th and 32nd pick, which looks to be an ideal landing spot for Fant.
Irv Smith Jr. NFL Draft Odds(+1400)
The difference in odds between the top three choices is absolutely massive. Smith Jr. at +1400 puts him in a territory where you’re hoping for two touchdown comeback miracle at the two-minute warning of a game. Nonetheless, the Alabama tight end is coming off an incredible run.
Smith Jr is fresh off an amazing junior year where he made 44 receptions for 710 yards and seven touchdowns. His strong mix of blocking and overall athleticism should catapult him into an immediate starting role on a team in need at this position. Unfortunately for him, he’s in a class where Iowa churned out two elite players at the same position. Because of this, Smith Jr is being projected as an early second round pick.
With the NFL Draft odds as they are, it would be an absolute shocker to see him taken before the others listed in this article. Believe me, I can be a sucker for this big odd long shots but this is one I can easily say is a pass. If your team ends with him, don’t fret, the praise on him is high. He just doesn’t own that first round appeal.[wpsm_comparison_table id=”10″ class=””]
