LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – How many quarterbacks will be taken in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft? Let’s look at the odds.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under has been set at 3 for the number of quarterbacks that will be taken in Round 1 on Thursday night. The over is carrying odds of -160 while the under has odds set at +120, which means that for every $160.00 that you wager you’ll win $100.00 if the over hits. And for every $100.00 that you wager on the under, you’ll win $120.00 if there are less than three quarterbacks taken in the first round.

The number is set correctly considering that Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater are expected to come off the board in the first 32 picks. The wildcard is if Bridgewater were to slip in the second round after a shaky pro day, or if Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater and Derek Carr are taken in the first round. The key to this bet is figuring out 1) if Bridgewater will be a first-rounder and 2) if Carr will come off the board in the first round. If the answer to both of those questions for you is “yes,” then take the over.

Who will be drafted first, Manziel or Bortles? Right now the odds favor Manziel at -400 to +250, while Carr is a favorite at -200 to be selected ahead of Bridgewater (+150).

Also, what will Manziel’s drat position be on Thursday? The over/under has been set at 4.5, with the over carrying odds of -135 and the under carrying odds of -105. The first five teams – the Texans, Rams, Jaguars, Browns and Raiders – have all been linked to Manziel at one point or another over these last couple of months.

The 2014 NFL Draft will take place starting on Thursday night at 8:00PM ET with the first round.
