The 2022 NFL Draft begins on Thursday, April 28 in Las Vegas. The three-day event offers plenty of ways to get action for NFL fans, with Caesars Sportsbook offering props such as the exact player to go in each of the top five picks, odds for several players to go in the top five or top 10, who will be the first player drafted at each position and more, including draft position over/unders on top quarterbacks Malik Willis (9.5), Kenny Pickett (11.5), Desmond Ridder (30.5), Matt Corral (33.5) and Sam Howell (45.5).
Before locking in any 2022 NFL Draft prop bets, you NEED to see what NFL expert R.J. White has to say.
CBS Sports' Fantasy and gambling managing editor, White has delivered consistently on a high volume of picks over the long-term, returning $2,542 to $100 bettors on more than 800 against the spread picks since the start of the 2017 NFL season. It's no surprise, as White has cashed huge twice in the world's most prestigious football handicapping competition, the Las Vegas SuperContest.
In his time as a CBS Sports NFL editor, White was also widely recognized as one of the nation's premier NFL Draft experts. Every spring, he put together seven-round mock drafts read by millions, including trades he expects. No stone is left unturned in White's draft analysis.
This is the same expert who, very early in the 2018 draft process, bet Baker Mayfield to go No. 1 overall at 25-1! He also was ahead of the Trey Lance to 49ers prediction in 2021, giving it out at 3-1 on the Early Edge podcast.
Last season, White's winning tickets also included Patrick Surtain Under 10.5 and Jaycee Horn Under 12.5 before both corners went in the top 10. In fact, he said of Horn, "It wouldn't shock me for one team in the 8-12 range to fall in love with him and take him ahead of Surtain." Horn was in fact taken one spot ahead of Surtain by Carolina in a shocker, which White recommended as a play at +750 in his selection of longshot prop picks that also included cashing Jevon Holland as the first safety drafted at +350.
Now he's turned his attention to the 2022 NFL Draft and has revealed his 10 best prop bets, his eight best longshot prop plays and his 2022 NFL Mock Draft.
We'll give one of White's best bets away: Take Ahmad Gardner to be a top-five selection on Thursday. That prop pays -120 (risk $120 to win $100).
White knows from last year how much of a priority elite corner talent is in the draft, and Gardner has emerged not only as the best player at the position but one of the best players in the draft overall. He also sees at least two teams with a clear need at cornerback in the top five and would be shocked if Gardner is still on the board by the time Carolina is on the clock at No. 6.
White also has several other underdog props, and is releasing a MONSTER 100-1 long shot! You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any NFL Draft prop selections.
