How to Bet on the 2023 NFL Draft in Ohio

In March of 2023, the Ohio Casino Control Commission made a groundbreaking decision by approving NFL Draft prop bets for the state's casinos and online sportsbooks. This decision allows sports fans to bet on various outcomes during the 2023 NFL draft, which is an exciting and much-anticipated event for NFL enthusiasts.

The NFL Draft is a yearly event where NFL teams select new players to join their teams. It is a significant event for teams as they want to improve their roster and their chances of winning the Super Bowl. This event is also significant for fans eager to see which players will join their favorite team.

With the approval of NFL Draft prop bets, Ohio sports fans can now place bets on various outcomes. For example, they can bet on which player will be selected first overall, which team will draft a particular player, or even how many quarterbacks will be chosen in the first round.

We here at OH Betting would love to tell you who to pick (we’ll do that closer to the draft) but instead teach the Buckeye State gambler how to make their own selections for the 2023 NFL Draft.

What are Prop Bets?

Prop bets, short for proposition bets, are a type of sports betting where wagers are placed on a specific individual or team event within a larger sporting event or game. Prop bets are typically more precise than traditional bets and often have nothing to do with the outcome of the game or event.

2023 NFL Draft Betting Tips

Betting on the NFL draft has become increasingly popular, as fans look to add excitement to the annual event. Here are some tips on how to bet on the NFL draft:

  • Do your research: Prior to placing any bets, please do your research on the top prospects and the teams in the draft. Look at mock drafts and expert opinions to get a better sense of who is likely to be selected where.
  • Know the betting options: There is a variety of betting options available for the NFL draft, including betting on which player will be selected first at each position, which team will choose a particular player, and over/under bets on where certain players will be selected. Understand the options available and choose the one that best suits your betting style.
  • Consider team needs: When placing bets on which player a team will select, consider the team’s needs and what position they are likely to prioritize in the draft.
    Look for value: As with any type of betting, look for value in the odds. Don’t just bet on the favorites; look for opportunities to bet on underdogs more likely to be selected than the odds suggest.
  • Manage your bankroll: As with any betting, avoiding getting carried away is essential. Make a budget for your bets and stick to it, and please don’t chase losses by placing bigger bets than you can afford.
  • Line shop: As with anything else, getting the best price at the best odds matters. Sign up for as many Ohio betting accounts as possible, and don’t be afraid to use multiple books to place your wagers.
