NFL Draft 2020 QB Prop Bets: Where Top Prospects Will Go

NFL Draft 2020 QB Prop Bets: Where Top Prospects Will Go
  • URL Copied!

Finding a quarterback who can successfully lead an offense is Step No. 1 in the quest to be a contender in the NFL.

It’s not as easy as it might seem. Just ask the Chicago Bears.

Quarterbacks will play a key role in the trajectory of the 2020 NFL Draft. As many as five could be selected in the first round and fans of NFL betting could see a lucrative market.

PointsBet has released several prop bets pertaining to quarterbacks and the NFL Draft. Bookies.com breaks down the odds and makes picks on each.

No. 1 Pick in NFL Draft

Joe Burrow-3334
Chase Young +1200
Tua Tagovailoa +2000
Andrew Thomas+3000
Justin Herbert +4000

The Bengals can have any player they want thanks to their dismal two-win 2019 season. There isn’t much they don’t need. It very much appears Andy Dalton isn’t a part of their future, so quarterback is the plan.

The Pick: Joe Burrow has been the consensus No. 1 pick since midway through the fall season. Nothing has changed — he’s a difference-maker with the temperament and confidence of a potential long-term success story. Chase Young is going to be special, but the Bengals can’t pass on Burrow, who just happens to be an Ohio native.

No. 2 Pick in NFL Draft

Chase Young -313
Tua Tagovailoa +205
Jeffrey Okudah+5000
Jedrick Wills+6000
Justin Herbert +6600

The Redskins own the No. 2 pick and ranked dead-last in the NFL in passing yards. Granted, they were also bottom-10 in rushing and 31st in stopping the run, so there are a lot of holes to fill.

The Pick: It’s always fun to draft a QB this high, but Washington just drafted one last year in Dwayne Haskins. Haskins was an unstoppable force at the highest level of college ball, and was thrown into a really tough situation midway through his rookie campaign. Young will be an immediate disruptive force who the Redskins’ defense can build around. It has to be Young.

Second QB Drafted

Tua Tagovailoa -500
Justin Herbert +300
Jordan Love+1100
Joe Burrow+2000
Jacob Eason+8000
Jake Fromm +10000
Jalen Hurts +10000
Teams could be moving up to draft Tua Tagovailoa.

With Burrow gone, we’re getting into team preferences. Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert and Jordan Love have all been linked as the next QB taken, based on which team is picking — or which team has traded up.

The Pick: In most instances, however, if a team is trading up it’s to get Tagovailoa before someone else does. He’s shown the combination of pocket skills and scrambling and, perhaps more important, has been given a clean bill of health. With no trade, Tagovailoa is the favorite to be the next QB in line. If a trade happens, it’s for Tagovailoa. he is the logical pick here.

Third QB Drafted

Justin Herbert -250
Jordan Love+225
Tua Tagovailoa +500
Joe Burrow+4000
Jacob Eason+6000
Jake Fromm +10000
Jalen Hurts +10000
Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert could be the third quarterback off the board as teams scramble to move up and draft Tua Tagovailoa.

Burrow will be gone for sure by this point, and this isn’t likely the spot for Jake Fromm or Jalen Hurts. After that, it gets tricky.

When it comes to Herbert vs. Love, it’s the sure thing vs. higher-end potential. Herbert has the makings of a long-term NFL starter, Love could be a star in the right system.



Teams drafting in the top 10 may not want to wait. Herbert would be a good fit with the Dolphins at No. 5, while Love may be the guy for teams such as the Panthers (No. 7) or Jaguars (No. 9).

The Chargers may be the wild card at No. 6. If Miami gets Tagovailoa at No. 5, L.A., which says it will go with Tyrod Taylor under center, could go either way when it comes to Herbert or Love.

The Pick: The Chargers reportedly liked Love and chalked up the QB’s subpar 2019 season based on trying to do too much for a Utah State team that didn’t have a lot around him. He wouldn’t have that problem on a loaded Chargers team, and would get a year to soak in the system.

Utah State quarterback Jordan Love could be a fit for the Panthers at No. 7 or Jaguars at No. 9.

How Many Quarterbacks Selected in Round 1

Over 4.5 +285
Under 4.5-385

Burrow, Tagovailoa, Herbert and Love are presumed first-round picks. The key will be to find a fifth QB worthy of a first-round selection. Jacob Eason appears to be that guy, and he’s one of “full of potential” prospects who would be great for a team that can afford to sit him for a year or more. The Colts, Cowboys, Buccaneers and Panthers are among the teams that may pull the trigger and use a late first-rounder on the Washington product.

The Pick: As many as 10 teams could be interested in a quarterback in the first round, either as an immediate starter or as a successor to a current veteran. All it takes is half that number to invest in a QB to hit the Over. Betting the Over at +285 could pay off big.
