Minnesota Vikings First Pick Odds NFL Draft 2020

You can bet on who the Minnesota Vikings pick in the 1st Round of the 2020 NFL Draft

A defensive player was coming in at 4/6 odds, an offensive player at 11/10.  Only a handful of sportsbooks were offering odds on this particular bet.

With draft picks at No. 22 and 25, the Vikings are widely expected to entertain draft offers.

"I've had calls already, opportunities of people trying to trade up, and I've also had teams that are in front of us that wanted to trade back," general manager Rick Spielman said on Tuesday. "I think it all depends how the draft board unfolds on Thursday. For example, I would say if we stay at 22, and we have maybe seven or eight names still up there, to move back from 25 to gain another pick and still get the same quality of player. An example: Last year, we moved back three times in the third round and still had [Alexander] Mattison targeted and were able to still get him. A lot of that manipulation on the draft board depends on what's up there, how you have the draft board stacked and how far are you willing to go back without risk of losing a particular player."
