Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields lead early NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year odds, all eyes are on Trey Lance and Mac Jones after Ian Rapoport’s reported the San Francisco 49ers’ preference for those two quarterbacks at No. 3, and Kyle Pitts could be the highest-drafted tight end in more than 60 years. That’s great, but let’s talk about Ja’Marr Chase, say NFL Draft bettors.

Chase hasn’t played a snap of competitive football since torching Clemson for nine catches, 221 yards, and three touchdowns in the national championship nearly 16 months ago. Nonetheless, the former Kansas commit is widely regarded as the top receiver in the 2021 NFL Draft, and the subject of the most popular player-specific prop bet in NFL Draft betting.

As of Tuesday, April 27, “Which team will draft Ja’Marr Chase?” is earning more action on BetMGM than any other player-specific prop and ranks fourth among all NFL Draft prop bets. The Cincinnati Bengals have sat atop Chase’s odds board for weeks and remain the only team with minus odds (-130).

“From what I’m hearing from within the organization and even members around the organization is they are targeting Ja’Marr Chase.” Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer reported two weeks ago. “…You know, they like his ability on the outside. And the Bengals have a need at wide receiver with the departure of A.J. Green.”

Here are the 10 most popular NFL Draft prop bets:
