Raiders Football

This year’s NFL draft would usually draw lots of attention from pigskin fans. But it will get more attention than usual from punters _ and in this case, we don’t mean the players who boot the ball to the other team on fourth down. Because most sports have been idled because of COVID-19, the draft is expected to draw an unusual number of bettors _ looking for any sports action they can find in these lean times. American sportsbooks say they expect this year’s draft to be the most bet on-ever, with one saying the industry will rake in $5 million in bets on what players get picked when _ and by which teams. The draft runs from today until Saturday.
