How to Handicap the NFL Draft
There’s no unknown secret to betting on the NFL Draft. It’s not like handicapping actual games where you can look at stats, trends, and other data to figure out where the value is. Instead, you have to rely on the information relayed to us through members of the sports media.
The best you can do is absorb as much information as possible from mock drafts, insider reports, and individual team needs. You can also take a look at some tendencies that certain general managers have. Back when Al Davis was the general manager of the Raiders, betting on them to select the WR with the fastest 40-time with their 1st pick would have been a great bet every single year.
At the end of the day, even the best draft analysts will be dead wrong on several fronts.
Do your research and have fun.
