Indiana Sportsbooks Offer Up Big Odds Boosts For The NFL Draft

Posted on April 26, 2021 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

Chris Ballard has some decisions to make this week.

The NFL Draft is here, so the Indianapolis Colts general manager will be at the helm of shaping the team’s future.

This year’s draft is taking place from April 29 to May 1.

Which draft picks do the Colts have?

Unlike last year, the Colts actually have a first-round pick.

Indy’s first selection will come at No. 21.

That spot is right behind the Chicago Bears, and right before the team’s AFC South rival Tennessee Titans.

Here’s a look at the where the Colts will be picking in this year’s draft:

  • Round 1: 21st overall pick
  • Round 2: 54th overall pick
  • Round 4: 127th overall pick
  • Round 5: 165th overall pick
  • Round 6: 206th overall pick
  • Round 7: 248th overall pick

Of course, that order isn’t final.

Ballard has a tendency to acquire extra draft assets, so don’t be surprised if the GM ends up trading back with another team.

The Colts don’t have a third round pick this year thanks to the Carson Wentz trade.

The team shipped the pick off to Philadelphia to bring the quarterback to Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Colts draft odds

Indiana online betting apps will be taking action on the entire draft.

DraftKings has some interesting options on the board for the Colts.

For example, gamblers can bet on which side of the ball the team’s first draft pick will play.

Offense is the -143 favorite with defense trailing at +115.

There’s another option out there if you’re looking to get even more specific.

DraftKings will let you bet on the exact position of the team’s first draft pick.

Offensive lineman is the odds-on favorite right now.

  • Offensive Lineman: -110
  • Defensive Lineman: +325
  • Cornerback: +550
  • Wide Receiver: +600
  • Linebacker: +1,000

Those odds go all the way up to +50,000 for the Colts to draft a kicker with their first pick.

There’s something for everyone regardless of which direction you think the team will end up heading.

NFL Draft sportsbook promotions and odds boosts

FanDuel 20/1 NFL Draft odds boost

FanDuel has a new promotion specifically for the NFL Draft.

This one is for new users only, so the sportsbook is hoping the deal will attract some fresh gamblers.

Trevor Lawrence is the big name in this year’s draft, and FanDuel doesn’t want to miss out on the fun.

The sportsbook is offering an odds boost for the first overall pick.

If you bet $5 on Lawrence to be the first pick in the draft and he goes in the first spot, then you’ll win $100 with FanDuel’s latest deal.

That’s an incredible promotion considering that FanDuel has Lawrence as the -50,000 favorite to be the top pick.

To get in on the deal, just sign up for FanDuel with the link below, make your first deposit, and wager on Lawrence to be the first pick in the draft.

DraftKings NFL Draft QB Bonus

DraftKings also has a new promotion on the board for the NFL Draft, and it looks pretty similar to FanDuel’s.

This one also centers around the first pick and is for new users only. You’ll have to sit this one out if you already have a DraftKings account.

The “NFL Draft QB Bonus” is a bet $1 to win $100 promotion.

All you have to do to qualify for the deal is to sign up for DraftKings and deposit at least $5 into your account.

Once you do, just place a $1 bet on a quarterback to be the first overall pick in the NFL Draft. If your bet wins, then DraftKings will credit your account with four different $25 bonus bets.

This is another can’t lose situation assuming that Trevor Lawrence is taken off the board first.

Just find the deal under the “Promos” section of DraftKings’ website or app to get started.

Unibet NFL Draft No Brainer

Every gambler loves an easy win, and Unibet is handing one out for the NFL Draft.

The sportsbook’s “NFL Draft No Brainer” is a can’t-miss promotion, especially because it is open to all users.

The deal boosts the betting odds for Trevor Lawrence to become the first overall pick in the draft.

Those odds were originally at -10,000, but the deal boosts that number all the way up to +100.

It would be a shock if Lawrence wasn’t the first pick, so this is essentially a guaranteed win.

To take advantage of Unibet’s deal, just head over to the “NFL Draft 2021” section of the sportsbook’s website or app.

Next, add Trevor Lawrence as the first pick to your bet slip. Once you do, the odds will automatically boost for the deal.

There’s a max $25 bet for this promotion, but it’s still an easy way to turn $25 into $50.
