It wasn’t even a question last year. Trevor Lawrence was going No. 1 to Jacksonville. He knew it. The Jaguars knew it. The fans knew it. And the NFL Draft betting odds knew it. Lawrence had -50000 odds to be drafted No. 1. The second-best odds to get selected first overall was Zach Wilson at +1600.

This year’s NFL Draft has a bit more intrigue. Analysts have differing opinions on who is going No. 1. And betting odds show it with close favorites at the top.

BetMGM’s top four betting odds for the No. 1 pick are Aidan Hutchinson +155, Evan Neal +175, Kayvon Thibodeaux +325, and Ikem Ekwonu +400. There is a dropoff to No. 5, where Malik Willis is +2000.

Where do the experts think these four will get drafted? Check it out below, along with the full list of player odds for the first overall pick.
