This year’s NFL draft would usually draw lots of attention from pigskin fans. However, it will get more attention than usual from punters and in this case, we don’t mean the players who boot the ball to the other team on fourth down.
Most sports have been idled because of COVID-19, the draft is expected to draw an unusual number of bettors looking for any sports action they can find in these lean times. American sportsbooks say they expect this year’s draft to be the most bet on-ever, with one saying the industry will rake in $5 million in bets on what players get picked when and by which teams. The draft runs from today until Saturday.
