Are Trevor Lawrence’s Odds To Be First Pick In 2021 Draft Worth It?

  • Trevor Lawrence currently leads all odds to be the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft at -325.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars currently sit with the lowest projected win total at 5.

LAS VEGAS – When it comes to speculation for the 2021 NFL Draft, bettors can never be too early. Even just a few days removed from the 2020 social distanced edition of the draft, odds are already available for the first overall pick for next year.

At a surprise to basically no one, leading those odds is Clemson Tigers quarterback, national champion, and future shampoo commercial star, Trevor Lawrence.

2021 NFL Draft – 1st Overall Pick:

  • Trevor Lawrence -325
  • Justin Fields +300
  • Penei Sewell +450
  • D’Eriq King +1600
  • Micah Parsons +2500
  • Alex Leatherwood +3300
  • Ja’Marr Chase +5000
  • Devonta Smith +5000
  • Patrick Surtain II +5000
  • Jaylen Waddle +5000

With the next shortest odds is Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback and former Georgia Bulldogs QB Justin Fields, followed by a bevy of players including four from the Alabama Crimson Tide.

However, barring any major changes throughout the season, Lawrence will certainly be the first player selected as teams look to bring in a franchise quarterback. Lawrence is projected to go first in Walter Football’s 2021 Mock Draft to whoever ends up in that number 1 spot.

Current odds have the Jacksonville Jaguars projected to be that team in the number one slot, with their win total sitting at a measly 5 games. Bettors are also hammering the Under here.

Jacksonville Jaguars – Total Wins in the 2020 Regular Season:

  • Over 5 +110
  • Under 5 -145

This would allow the Jags to get their QB1 of the future, adding some stability to a team that has seen little of it at the quarterback position over the years.

However, hot on their heels of failure are the Washington Redskins, and Carolina Panthers, who are both facing some tough seasons ahead of them. This group leads the pack in the odds for most regular-season losses in 2020.

2020-2021 Team With Most Regular Season Losses:

  • Jacksonville Jaguars +375
  • Washington Redskins +600
  • Carolina Panthers +650
  • Cincinnati Bengals +650
  • Detroit Lions +950
  • Miami Dolphins +950

All those teams could certainly benefit from Lawrence’s services heading forward, with the Jaguars and Redskins both continuing second-year quarterback experiments this season. Only time will tell if Gardner Minshew and Dwayne Haskins prove themselves to be long time answers, but in the meantime, bettors will continue to speculate.
