NFL Draft Prop Bets: Will Any Picks Violate Social Distancing?


Unlike last year, when quarterback Daniel Jones was taken by the Giants with the sixth overall pick, Duke isn’t expected to have any players taken in the first round of the NFL Draft later this month.

If Blue Devil football fans are looking for a reason to tune into a Duke-less NFL Draft later this month, sports book BetOnline has them covered.

With no live sports to set lines on, BetOnline has created several prop bets surrounding the NFL’s all virtual broadcast of the NFL Draft this year. Teams will have virtual war rooms, and picks will react to their selections from home, instead of in person in Las Vegas, where the draft was scheduled to be held.

So here’s a look at the NFL Draft broadcast prop bets:

Who will No. 1 overall pick hug first?

Mom 5/4

Dad 5/2

Girlfriend 3/1

Friend 7/1

Sibling 7/1

Like everyone else, NFL Draft picks are subject to the same large gathering and social distancing regulations as the rest of us. But this is the NFL Draft! Will anyone violate the regulation?
