There’s no sure thing in the NFL Draft which starts on Thursday.
The NFL world has been shaken by a single post on Reddit.
On the subreddit ‘r/sportsbook,’ someone by the username SaleAgreeable2834 claimed that Kentucky quarterback Will Levis has been sharing that he will be selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

The Reddit post dropped on Tuesday morning and Levis’ odds shot up to as high as +400 in some sportsbooks — which means he had four-to-one odds to be selected with the first overall pick.

Levis has been projected to be a first-round selection in the draft. However, most, including ESPN Insider Adam Schefter have projected the No.1 overall selection to be Bryce Young from Alabama, who had odds as high as -2400 to be the first pick in some sportsbooks over the past several weeks.
Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud was once projected alongside Young, but in recent weeks was projected to be the second quarterback off the board, ahead of Levis and Florida’s Anthony Richardson. However, Levis is now second in many of the major sportsbooks.
As of this writing, FanDuel Sportsbook has Levis at +700 to be selected with the top pick, ahead of both Stroud (+3,000) and Richardson (+7,500). Young (-1,350) still has the best odds.
DraftKings Sportsbook has Levis at +650 which is also ahead of Stroud (+2,500) and Richardson (+3,500), but behind Young (-1,600).
