Here's some last-minute NFL Draft proposition bets I found on There is some fine print governing the bets -- the maximum wager allowed is $200, for instance -- but let's cut to the chase here and just look at the odds for these Over-Unders:

Total number of offensive players drafted in Round One

 Over  15 offensive players       +160    

 Under  15 offensive players     -180

Total number of defensive players drafted in Round One

Over  17 defensive players      -220     

Under  17 defensive players    +180

Number of wide receivers plus tight ends selected in Round One

 Over  3 receivers          +160

Under  3 receivers        -200

Number of offensive linemen taken in Round One

Over  7½ offensive linemen     +140

Under  7½ offensive linemen    -170

Number of defensive tackles taken in Round One

Over  4½ defensive tackles      +150    

Under  4½ defensive tackles  -200     

Number of defensive ends taken in Round One

Over  3½ defensive ends         -180     

Under  3½ defensive ends       +140    

Number of linebackers taken in Round One

Over  4 linebackers      -185

Under  4 linebackers    +155

Update: The odds on more than four linebackers being drafted in Round One have dropped from plus-250 earlier in the afternoon to minus-185. According to the rules of the bet, the position of the player selected, for purposes of scoring the bet, is the "one listed on after Round 1 is finished."

In short, whether a player is judged to be an outside linebacker or a defensive end could be crucial for purposes of this bet.
