As if the Raiders’ first-round pick couldn’t have gotten more exciting, you now have a chance to make money from it.

Circa Sports, which in my opinion is the best sports book in Las Vegas, has released odds for who the Raiders’ first round draft pick will be. There are definitely some interesting odds and value on this board, let’s take a look.

The player with the best odds to be taken is USC offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker at +575. Right behind him is Alabama defensive lineman Christian Barmore at +600.

The Raiders have been recently attached to a number of linebackers, the first being Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, who is put at +650. The next linebacker, which is really good value, is Micah Parsons at +1500.

If you feel like the Raiders won’t take any of these players above, there’s an option for them to take a different player not mentioned at +700, so either way, one of these bets on this board will hit.

It’s interesting that they have Jaylen Waddle up here, granted they are the lowest odds at +3000. The Raiders already went for the speedy wide receiver from Alabama last season, I doubt they’ll go down that road again.

So, what are your thoughts? If you had to place a bet, which direction would you go? There definitely is some strategy in this, along with a ton of luck.
