The Daily Wager likes the over on Big Ten players taken in 1st round (1:17)

Chris "The Bear" Fallica recommends taking the over on Big Ten players drafted in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft. (1:17)

The 2020 NFL draft is still scheduled to take place April 23-25, which gives us an opportunity to look at some betting futures for the incoming class. Our betting experts -- Doug Kezirian, Preston Johnson, Anita Marks, Seth Walder and Matt Youmans of the Vegas Stats & Information Network -- offer their best prop bets as draft day approaches.

QBs drafted in first round: Over 4 (-120)

Kezirian: This feels like a push, at worst. Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa will all be drafted in the first round. This comes down to Jordan Love and Jacob Eason. In Todd McShay's latest mock draft, he had Love at No. 6 and ahead of Herbert. We also know that teams tend to fall in love with quarterbacks as draft day nears. Mel Kiper Jr. has Eason being chosen late in the first round, so I will roll the dice here and hope for five, but I'll probably settle for a push.

The Daily Wager's best 2020 NFL draft prop bets

Seth Walder likes multiple 2020 NFL Draft prop bets including taking the under on SEC players drafted in the first round.

Johnson: Burrow, Tagovailoa and Herbert are likely to all be drafted by pick No. 6 (Chargers) now that Philip Rivers will be under center in Indianapolis. There is growing buzz that Love could be picked in the top 10 as well, but at the very worst, I don't see him sliding past the Patriots at pick No. 23 now that Tom Brady is in Tampa Bay. That gives us the latter part of the first round to sneak in Eason (and a very outside shot at Jalen Hurts or Jake Fromm). This bet will push a good portion of the time, but the chance that we see five quarterbacks taken compared to just three at this point is well worth the -140 price tag.

Youmans: Betting over four appears to be a free shot because at worst the wager should push. After Burrow and Tagovailoa, Herbert and Love are widely considered locks to go in the first round. Love's stock started soaring at the scouting combine in late February. All four could go in the top 10. Eason, who started his college career at Georgia and finished at Washington, is a long shot to go late in the first round. The worst-case scenario seems to be a push, and you would make a bet like that every time.
