Travon Walker new favorite for #1 Pick

As the saying in sports goes, Vegas always knows.

That could be the case in the 2022 NFL Draft, with sportsbooks dramatically shifting odds for the player to be selected first on Thursday night to Georgia defensive lineman Travon Walker.

The hold the #1 overall pick.

Walker was graded as a first-round pick before the national championship win over Alabama, but the Bulldogs' gem has only risen up draft boards since January.

At 6-feet-5, 272, he ran a 4.51 40-yard dash at the combine with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 6.89-second three-cone drill.

For nearly two months, most regulated sportsbooks aligned on Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson going first in the draft to the Jaguars, with Walker and North Carolina State offensive tackle Ikem Ekwonu close behind.

But as draft week opens, Caesars Sportsbook was first to shift the board, making Walker a -150 favorite to go #1 and Hutchinson +140.

Not long after, DraftKings mirrored those odds and FanDuel made Walker the -155 favorite, followed by Hutchinson (+150) and Ekwonu (+600).

Alabama left tackle Evan Neal, the favorite before the NFL Scouting Combine, is listed fourth by most major books in the +1400 to +1600 range.

Walker is -700 to go in the top three at FanDuel, odds that are a distant second to Hutchinson (-3000).
