View 2016 Super Bowl Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for the number of receivers that will be taken in the first round on Thursday night has been set at 5.5. The over carries odds of -140 while the under carries odds of even, so for every $140 that you wager on the over, you'll cash $100 if you win. And for every $100 you wager on the under, you'll win $100 if only five receivers or less are selected in the first round.

There's a good chance that the over will hit on Thursday. Kevin White of West Virginia and Amari Cooper of Alabama are locks to go in the first round, while DeVante Parker and Breshad Perriman should be taken in the first 32 picks as well. Oklahoma's Dorial Green-Beckham, Miami's Phillip Dorsett, and USC's Nelson Agholor are wildcards to be taken in the first round as well.

In 2014 there were five receivers taken: Sammy Watkins (Bills), Mike Evans (Bucs), Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants), Brandin Cooks (Saints) and Kelvin Benjamin (Florida State). In what was considered a weak receiver class in 2013, Tavon Austin, DeAndre Hopkins and Cordarrelle Patterson were taken in the first round.
