Travon Walker: Scouting Report, Draft Projection, 247, 40 time
Georgia defensive end Travon Walker has gone from long shot to the consensus odds-on favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in this week’s NFL draft at sportsbooks around the nation.
Walker, who was not even listed when some sportsbooks decided which player would be the No. 1 pick, overtook Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson late Sunday and now sits above the odds in the books across the country.
Hutchinson was an outright favorite since early March. Walker’s odds dropped from +150 to -200 on Sunday night at Caesars Sportsbook, with Hutchinson dropping from -170 to +160. During the 12 hour interval starting at 8:30 pm. ET Sunday.
Walker opened at 30-1 to be the first pick in the BetMGM Sportsbook. He now has 35% of the amount bet on BetMGM to go number 1 in the odds, the highest of any player.
BetMGM sports trader Seamus Magee said he took “fast money on Walker late yesterday”, which contributed to the odds movement.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are the owner of the No. 1 overall pick.
