The 2020 NFL Draft is fast approaching and while general managers might not be happy about the fully-virtual event from April 23-25, NFL fans should be in for a treat. In fact, the 2020 NFL Draft might be even better with unique prop bets for fans to wager on.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic forcing everyone to stay at home, general managers and coaches will be making picks and trading from their couch. Meanwhile, all of the top draft prospects will be at home experiencing the moment when their name is called and they virtually walk across the stage.

For fans seeking even more entertainment and a chance to cash in, SportsBetting.Ag is offering up some incredible NFL Draft bets to take advantage of. From betting on draft picks and positions to incredible prop bets, fans can bet on almost anything.

Let’s take a look at some of our favorite prop bets for the 2020 NFL Draft.

Will any draftee experience local technical difficulties?

  • Yes (-500)
  • No (+300)

If we’ve learned anything from life, it’s that technology will fail each of us in the moment we need it the most. Given this will be the NFL’s first major dive into a draft relying entirely on technology, it’s wise to bet a few things go wrong. Although, if the line keeps going up, it might be worth taking a small shot against technical issues.

Total cats shown during the first round?

  • Under 0.5 cats (-130)
  • Over 0.5 cats (+130)

Cats might be one of the most underrated pets. People love to talk about dogs, but having a cat can be a wonderful experience and they are a great pet. It’s estimated that 25.4% of households own a cat. It only takes one cat to be shown on screen to win the bet in the first round. We like the chances of that happening.

Total dogs shown during the first round?

  • Under 3.5 dogs (-140)
  • Over 3.5 dogs (+100)

There is nothing dog owners love more than showing their beloved pet to everyone. We might see two dogs make an appearance at a single moment. Frankly, the audience probably wants to see as many dogs as possible. Always bet the over when it comes to the number of dogs shown.

Who will the No. 1 overall pick hug first

  • Mom (+125)
  • Dad (+250)
  • Girlfriend (+300)
  • Friend (+700)
  • Sibling (+700)

Really, this question is asking who Joe Burrow will hug first. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner is widely expected to be the No. 1 overall pick, even if it’s not by the Cincinnati Bengals. Going with either parent in this prop bet is a strong choice.

There are even more great prop bets for football fans to place some wagers on, along with bets on individual picks and prospects.

While it might not be the experience fans are used to by attending the NFL Draft, something tells thus the 2020 NFL Draft will still provide plenty of fun.
