There is plenty of educated guesswork involved in predicting the NFL Draft, and anybody can take their deductions all the way to the betting window.

Bovada released various odds for the draft, which starts Thursday night with the first round and runs for three days. For entertainment purposes, let's kick the tires on some of those odds, using the latest mock drafts from NFLDraftScout.com senior analysts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler as a guide to find the best bets, which isn't always the favorite.

--First pick in the draft?

Sam Darnold -- 5/12

Josh Allen -- 8/5

Saquon Barkley -- 11/2

Baker Mayfield -- 10/1

Josh Rosen -- 18/1

Bradley Chubb -- 45/1

Rang: Darnold (kind of). There might be good value in Mayfield, as he writes in his 10 Bold Predictions column to watch out for the quarterback from Oklahoma. "I'm told it could happen," Rang wrote. "The reigning Heisman winner has his share of supporters on this staff."
