The 2018 NFL Draft is only two days away, and there is still not a general consensus as to which player will be drafted with the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns.
While some believe that the Browns will go the route of drafting a quarterback like USC’s Sam Darnold, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield or even Wyoming’s Josh Allen with the top pick, there are plenty that believe the Browns will take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 1.
While we still have to wait a couple more days to find out which player the Browns will take with the top pick, Bovada released its NFL draft odds on Monday. According to the betting site, Darnold has the best odds to go No. 1 in the draft at 5/12 (-240).
Allen has the second-best odds at 8/5 (+160) and Barkley has the third-best odds at 11/2 (+550). Mayfield (10/1) and UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen (18/1) rank fourth and fifth, respectively, to round out the top five.
Barkley has the best odds to be taken with the No. 2 pick at 2/1. North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb has the second-best odds to be taken with the second pick in the draft at 11/4.
Rosen is favored to be selected No. 3 overall (7/5). Mayfield isn’t close behind Rosen for the third overall pick with odds of 8/5.
Here is a list of odds for the top three picks in the draft:
