All odds are from the following sportsbooks.

Best 2022 NFL Draft Wide Receiver Bets

Garrett Wilson: Under 10.5

  • Line: -138
  • Sportsbook: FOXBet
  • Date: Apr. 19
  • Units: 1.38
  • Notes: Wilson, Jameson Williams and Drake London all have a case to be the No. 1 receiver drafted, but Wilson (+125) is the consensus favorite, and we could easily see the Jets (Nos. 4 & 10) and Falcons (No. 8) select two receivers in the top 10.

Treylon Burks: Under 23.5

  • Line: +100
  • Sportsbook: PointsBet
  • Date: Apr. 19
  • Units: 1
  • Notes: Let’s assume that Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams and Drake London are all drafted in the top 12 ahead of Burks. Even if that happens, he could still find realistic landing spots with the Eagles (Nos. 15 & 18), Saints (Nos. 16 & 19), Chargers (No. 17), Patriots (No. 21), Packers (No. 22) and Cardinals (No. 23) to cash this ticket. Burks is under 23.5 in 76% of the sharp index.

Jahan Dotson: Over 32.5

  • Line: +115
  • Sportsbook: Caesars
  • Date: Apr. 19
  • Units: 1
  • Notes: The median number of wide receivers drafted in Round 1 of the sharp index is six, so we’re likely to see another receiver drafted after Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams, Drake London, Treylon Burks and Chris Olave — but that guy doesn’t need to be Dotson. He could also be Christian Watson or George Pickens. Dotson is in Round 1 of just 40% of the sharp index.

George Pickens: Over 36.5

  • Line: -110
  • Sportsbook: PointsBet
  • Date: Apr. 19
  • Units: 1.1
  • Notes: Pickens is No. 48 in the consensus big board at NFL Mock Draft Database.

John Metchie: Over 59.5

  • Line: -114
  • Sportsbook: FanDuel
  • Date: Apr. 19
  • Units: 1.14
  • Notes: Metchie has a 76.0 expected draft position at Grinding the Mocks, and I have him going at No. 74 to the Falcons in my most recent mock.

Wide Receivers in Round 1: Over 5.5

  • Line: -250
  • Sportsbook: bet365
  • Date: Apr. 20
  • Units: 1
  • Notes: I see over 5.5 wide receivers in Round 1 of 84% of the sharp index. After Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams, Drake London, Treylon Burks and Chris Olave, all we need is one of Jahan Dotson, Christian Watson, George Pickens and maybe even Skyy Moore to get into Round 1, and the odds of at least one of them sneaking in are good.

Skyy Moore: Over 34.5

  • Line: -115
  • Sportsbook: DraftKings
  • Date: Apr. 21
  • Units: 1.15
  • Notes: I love Moore, but his Grinding the Mocks expected draft position (46.2) and NFL Mock Draft Database consensus big board rank (49) compel me to bet the over.
