And after waiting 2 years to finally host after being rescheduled due to COVID, you know Las Vegas will be pulling out all the stops to make this draft the biggest and best yet. Held at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, the city is excited to hold the 87th annual NFL Draft.

In true Vegas fashion, this epic weekend will be over-the-top in the best kinds of ways. Top players will be ferried to a floating stage in front of the Bellagio Fountains to make their media rounds on the red carpet, and entertainers will perform between rounds. If that isn’t the most Vegas way to do the NFL draft, we don’t know what is. Other Las Vegas NFL Draft activities include the NFL Draft Theater and the NFL Draft Experience – a three-day football festival featuring interactive games, the Vince Lombardi Trophy, autograph sessions with NFL players and legends, brand activations, giveaways, and the NFL Shop.

Circa Sportsbook for NFL Draft Viewing and Betting


NFL Draft Betting


The most common bet type for NFL Draft betting is placing a prop bet on who will be the First Overall Pick. Bet options focus on the top draft prospects, especially at the skill positions. Betting options for prospects can include potential landing spots and draft spots. In addition to betting on First Overall Pick, you can place position-related bets. These can include betting on which players will be selected as first quarterback (QB), wide receiver (WR), or running back (RB), or betting on how many of a certain position will be selected in the first round.

In NFL Draft betting, like with betting the moneyline or the spread for games, you’re generally deciding between only two possible outcomes – either the Over/Under on draft position or the number of a certain position to be selected. Though there might not be much in terms of official NFL draft betting, you can still count on the energy at the sportsbooks, sports bars, and other sports spots to be extra high during these exciting few days.
