DETROIT – The first round of the 2024 NFL Draft is just one day away and there’s plenty of betting value on the board. A hot topic is the landing spot for Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy, who has +140 odds at USA online sportsbooks to be drafted by the Minnesota Vikings.

Odds for teams to draft JJ McCarthy

  • Minnesota Vikings +140
  • New York Giants +275
  • Denver Broncos +300
  • New England Patriots +375
  • Los Angeles Chargers +900
  • Washington Commanders +1200
  • Las Vegas Raiders +1400
  • Seattle Seahawks +2000
  • Arizona Cardinals +10000
  • Chicago Bears +10000

McCarthy has shot up draft boards since reportedly crushing NFL Combine interviews with key decision makers across the 11 teams he met with. Of course, the Minnesota Vikings are one of those teams and in desperate need for a quarterback after the departure of Kirk Cousins.

Despite the Vikings currently holding the 11th overall pick, Minnesota has +140 odds at Minnesota online sportsbooks to draft McCarthy. It’s well-known that Minnesota wants to trade up in the draft and get a quarterback, likely working out a deal with the Arizona Cardinals (No. 4) or Los Angeles Chargers (No. 5), who already have quarterbacks on large contracts.

If Vikings Get McCarthy, Giants Will Take Wide Receiver

The New York Giants are another quarterback-needing team just out of range to draft one of the top QB prospects in the draft. They’ll be looking to trade up, but if the Vikings strike first there’s good value on New York sticking at sixth overall and drafting wide receiver Malik Nabers.

Betting Odds for the No. 6 Pick

  • Malik Nabers +160
  • Rome Odunze +275
  • J.J. McCarthy +550
  • Joe Alt +700
  • Marvin Harrison Jr. +1100
  • Drake Maye +2800
  • Brock Bowers +4000
  • Jayden Daniels +4500
  • Olumuyiwa Fashanu +5000
  • Taliese Fuaga +5000

There are +160 odds at sportsbooks for the NFL for Nabers to be selected sixth overall. Even if the Giants swap first round picks with the Cardinals, there’s still a great chance Nabers gets chosen in that spot assuming Marvin Harrison Jr. (+1100) is already off the board.
