    NFL Draft Odds 2020; Bengals Set To Bag a Potential Superstar

    NFL Draft Odds 2020; Bengals Set To Bag a Potential Superstar

    Las Vegas is gearing up to host the eagerly anticipated 2020 NFL Draft which is being dubbed "The Joe Burrow Lottery." Nothing is certain in football, although Joe Burrow being the overall number one pick is as close as you're going to get because Bovada's NFL draft odds 2020 make him a -1200 favorite.

    • Joe Burrow is -1200 to be the first overall pick
    • Chase Young can be bet on at +600
    • Andrew Thomas is a +1400 outsider to be picked first
    • Justin Herbert is available as an overall first pick at +1600
    • Hot property Tua Tagovailoa is the +2200 outsider for the first overall pick.

    Cincinnati Bengals Can't Turn Down Joe Burrow

    The Cincinnati Bengals endured a torrid 2019 season, finishing with a 2-14 record. Only winning two games all season was tough for Bengals fans to take, but it means they have the first overall pick. That first pick is almost guaranteed to be LSU quarterback Joe Burrow according to the -1200 2020 NFL draft odds.

    Current quarterback Andy Dalton was not the reason for Bengals' poor season so a new QB isn't high on their wish list. That said, Burrow is a potential future Pro Bowler and the Bengals are not stupid enough to allow one of their rivals to get their hands on such a talent.

    Burrow enjoyed an incredible 2019 season that saw him set a new NCAA record for touchdowns and rating. Burrow guided LSU to the 2020 National Championship title. He threw six touchdowns during a 42-25 victory over Clemson, a game we correctly predicted LSU would win and the points tally would be under the mark.

    Burrow's incredible 2019 campaign saw him throw for 5,671 yeards, throw a record 60 touchdowns and finish with an almost unbelievable 202.0 rating. Is Burrow going to be a Bengals player in 2020? You can guarantee it and the Vegas odds NFL draft 2020 of -1200 seem to agree with us.

    The Best of the Rest: Who's Going Where?

    Basically, there is little point in betting on anyone else other than Burrow to be the overall first pick because he's simply that good. Had it not been for a major injury to another quarterback, it could have been a different story.

    Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama is rated even higher than Burrow in regards to those college players who have a bright future in the game.

    Tagovailoa has forgone his senior year at the University of Alabama to be part of the 2020 NFL draft. 2020 NFL draft odds of +2200 are an extreme longshot but would be much shorter had Tagovailoa not suffered a brutal injury against Mississippi State.

    The young star suffered a dislocated hip, posterior wall fracture, conclusion, and a broken nose when Leo Lewis tacked him heavily from behind. Tagovailoa successfully underwent surgery, which forced him out of the remainder of the season, but he still managed 33 touchdowns and 2,840 passing yards over nine games!
