|BoDog.com have released their odds on this year’s NFL draft, scheduled for April 24-25 in New York. Eli Manning looks likely to follow in his brother’s footsteps as a number one selection, according to the odds laid out by BoDog.com.|
The San Diego Chargers will have the first pick of the bunch. Manning has been listed as their 1/1 favourite, with Iowa Offensive Tackle Robert Gallery close behind at 8/5. Another QB in the fray for the Chargers is Ben Roethlisberger, currently listed at 7/2 odds. The long shot first pick for the Chargers is Miami Junior Free Safety Sean Taylor, coming out of the gates at 20/1 odds.
“The Chargers are clearly lacking in the Quarterback category, and the Manning family has a reputation of breeding some top notch football player’s,” said Rob Gillespie, President of BoDog.com Sportsbook and Casino. “Kerry Collins put in a lack lustre performance for the Giants last season, and Jesse Palmer may be a little bit side tracked trying to choose a bride.”
