NFL Draft 2014: Prop bets and Super Bowl 49 betting lines

Derek Carr was the focus of several NFL draft props in the second round. Minnesota was the only team to move significantly on the Super Bowl futures menu based on the first round, according to Odds Shark.

Unless you're a huge Minnesota Vikings fan and believe they have a shot to win the next Super Bowl, the first round of the NFL Draft didn't have much impact on the odds of teams winning a championship.

The Vikings started the day as 66-1 long shots and ended the day as 50-1 long shots. While securing UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr at No. 9 and trading up to select Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater with the final pick of the night were solid moves, it hardly seemed like the most significant change to the NFL landscape.

But that's what Bovada obviously felt in posting its post-draft NFL futures.

Seattle remains the clear favorite to repeat as Super Bowl champions. The Seahawks did not draft in the first round but are scheduled to pick 40th on Friday.

Ironically, that is a number chosen by sportsbooks for a second-round NFL Draft prop involving running backs. No RBs were drafted on Day 1 and 40.5 is the over-under for when books project the first runner to hear his name called.

Houston was a Super Bowl contender starting last season but the Texans slumped to the worst record in the league due mainly to injury. Even drafting Jadeveon Clowney, the beastly defensive end from South Carolina, did not budge their future line from 40-1.

The Texans pick first in the second round and there are several props surrounding that pick. Bovada asks if they will select a quarterback with that pick. They also ask if Fresno State star QB Derek Carr will be the first quarterback drafted in the second round.

Cleveland was 50-1 to win the Super Bowl to start Thursday and ended the day at the same number, despite the bold move to grab Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel.
