As the 2012 NFL Draft nears, bettors can enjoy a surplus of options to wager on given the crazy amount of choices, trades and random stats that will be pulled up before Thursday night's proceedings begin. From RJ Bell over at Pregame, it's clear how oddsmakers believe the draft will go down, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill heading to the Miami Dolphins at No. 8 overall in the first round.
Oddsmakers are not allowing Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III to be wagered upon in the first two picks, but from there, Matt Kalil begins the string of players you can throw down on. They have him going at No. 3 overall to the Minnesota Vikings. Other wagers include a 23 percent chance the Vikings will trade that same pick. Check out some more interesting facts and figures from the Vegas odds after the jump.
