With just over 24 hours to go until the 2019 NFL Draft, the consensus amongst national analysts is the Arizona Cardinals are taking Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray No. 1 overall.

The odds in Las Vegas are the best place to check the legitimacy of claims like this, and at this time, the odds agree.

Per The Action Network’s betting advice for the NFL Draft posted Wednesday morning, Murray is a -500 favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick and the Cardinals are -350 to be the team picking there. For Vegas standards, that’s betting on a definitive favorite.

It goes even further, where betting on Murray to be picked in the top-two is at -1000.

The latest odds on Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen sure provide even more evidence that Murray is likely going to the Cardinals at the top. Rosen is a -2000 bet for if he will be traded during the draft, per

Murray has been riding an unavoidable wave of momentum in mock drafts since March, a space where Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa previously was the most common name mocked to the Cardinals at No. 1.

Arizona Sports’ 2019 NFL Mock Draft Tracker has Murray going to the Cardinals in its last 10 entries.

Coverage of the NFL Draft begins on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station at 6 a.m. Thursday and will take you all the way through the day, providing instant reactions to what the Cardinals decide to do at the top and more.
