A year ago, no one would have predicted that Kyler Murray would be the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. So betting on the first overall pick a year in advance is probably not the wisest way to spend money.

But if you want to put down some money on the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, you can. The Superbook at the Westgate Las Vegas is taking bets on next year’s first overall pick, and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is a huge favorite, at 1-2 odds.

Up next are Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm and Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert, who are both at 6-1. Ohio State pass rusher Chase Young is next at 10-1.

The next most likely first overall picks are Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown at 20-1, and Alabama defensive lineman Raekwon Davis and Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas at 40-1.

The longer shots are Clemson wide receiver Tee Higgins, LSU safety Grant Delpit, Iowa pass rusher A.J. Epenesa, Stanford offensive tackle Walker Little and Alabama linebacker Dylan Moses at 100-1. Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson, Clemson running back Travis Etienne and Colorado wide receiver Laviska Shenault are at 200-1, and Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins, Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor, Oklahoma wide receiver Ceedee Lamb and Auburn pass rusher Nick Coe are at 300-1.

  1. Chucky just has to Tank one more year for his Dynasty? That’s why he signed 10 year Contract!

  2. So what odds can we get that the Cardinals take him with the #1 pick?


    Or maybe the Giants end up going the way of the Cardinals?

  3. What are the odds the Dolphins take him with the No. 1 pick and then trade Josh Rosen?

  4. I feel like he gets hurt too much, so that is the biggest question mark to me. But he is still probably the best QB in the 2020 draft class.

  5. Unless he gets a catastrophic injury, Tua without question will be number one. Generational player.

  6. Great it’ll be another year of “They are too short!” from the contrarians. Fromm is 6″2′ and spells his name with two M’s and Tua is 6’1″ and hard to spell at all. They are not going to like it.

  7. Vegas odds have Tua Tagovailoa as overwhelming favorite to go #1 overall to the Cards in 2020!

  8. When ‘Bama plays garbage opponents Tua is a stud. When they play top caliber defenses with lots of NFL talent lining up across from him? You get last years national championship game. He is going to be Tim Tebow in the NFL only he can’t run like a full back. Hard pass on this guy all day
