Which Washington Commanders props have the best value for your dollar during what promises to be a fascinating 2023 NFL Draft for the franchise?
The 2023 NFL Draft is now only one day away. We’ve done our research and countless mock drafts by now, so let’s take the opportunity to make some money off the hard work put in.
I’ve gathered every possible Washington Commanders-related draft prop from FanDuel Sportsbook along with DraftKings USA. In this article, I’ll be sharing a few tips and thoughts based on the given market numbers.
Betting odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
Commanders – First drafted player position
- Cornerback – (FanDuel +125) or (DraftKings -125)
- Offensive Lineman – (FanDuel +200) or (DraftKings +220)
- Quarterback – (FanDuel +1000) or (DraftKings +1100)
- Running Back – (FanDuel+800) or (DraftKings +750)
- Tight End – (FanDuel +1000) or DraftKings +600)
- Defensive Line – (FanDuel +1600) or (DraftKings +1500)
- Linebacker – (FanDuel +2500) or (DraftKings +3000)
- Safety – (FanDuel +2500) or (DraftKings +3000)
- Wide Receiver – (FanDuel +4000) or (DraftKings +5000)
All the draft rumors and mock drafts have pointed towards the Commanders selecting a cornerback or offensive lineman with their first pick. Sportsbook numbers are showing just that.
If you believe the Commanders are selecting a corner or offensive lineman, you won’t get numbers that jump off the page. Although I believe there is fair value in the numbers being offered aside from cornerback odds on DraftKings.
FanDuel has the better number available at +125 as a $100 bet would return a profit of $125, compared to DraftKings -125 where a $100 bet returns $80. While offensive linemen are +200 or +220 which means a $100 bet returns $200 or $220.
However, one bet I absolutely love for the value being offered is the Commanders selecting a safety at +2500 or +3000.
Brian Branch is a name I’ve heard a few times surrounding Washington. He plays a majority of his snaps in the slot where the Commanders are weak. With those odds for basically a corner, it is hard to pass up. A $100 bet at +3000 pays $3,000.
The final position bet I love for value is Commanders to select a tight end. With Eric Bieniemy running the offense now, one thing we look at is the weakness of our tight end room and how much they were utilized in the Kansas City Chiefs system.
Michael Mayer and Dalton Kincaid are two names that have been swirling around the Commanders and with values of +650 and +1000, we must take this.
Which player will the Commanders pick first in the 2023 NFL Draft?
- Bijan Robinson (RB): +800
- Michael Mayer (TE): +1600
- Hendon Hooker (QB): +1200
All odds via FanDuel Sportsbook.
Washington’s tight end room is a weak point on the Commanders’ offense, while the offensive line has its issues. Mayer is a two-birds-with-one-stone situation as he’s a great blocker due to his size while being a more than capable weapon in the passing game.
A $100 bet on Mayer being the guy at No. 16 overall – or the first prospect draft by Washington via trading down – returns $1600.
