NFL draft odds are posted at many offshore books. The two highest profile players in the draft are the two most recent Heisman Trophy sensations, Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

Once considered a dead-heat between the two, the former Florida State signal caller Winston is an exorbitant 2/13 favorite to be drafted No. 1. This means gamblers would have to risk $130 to win $20. He is at 4-1 to go second or lower.

The erratic stock of the most recent Heisman winner Mariota is back on the rise according to most respect mock drafts. The team currently in possession of the second pick, the Tennessee Titans are the favorite to get him.

Sports betting experts do not trust that the Cleveland Browns are buying into Johnny Manziel purported lifestyle epiphany as Cleveland is tied with the New York Jets are 7/2 to be Mariota’s landing spot on draft day. The complete list from Sportsbook.ag is below:

Which team will draft Marcus Mariota?

Titans 7/5

Browns 7/2

Jets 7/2

Buccaneers 4/1

Rams 15/2

Redskins 12/1

Chargers 15/1

Bears 18/1

Bills 20/1

Texans 20/1

Over/unders are posted on three top wide receivers: Amari Cooper at 5.5 (with slight juice on the under), Kevin White at 7.5, and Melvin Gordon at 21.5 (juiced to the over). Though oddsmakers believe the top two picks could be quarterbacks, no other signal callers are likely to go in the first round. The over-under on quarterbacks selected in round one is 2.5 but under odds are a very steep 2/13 with over unlikely at 4-1.
