As if the drama surrounding the 2015 NFL Draft weren't enough, you can also bet on it. Canada-based posted odds on the first round of the draft, which obviously include a few Mariota bets.

The two bets above that have Eagles relevance are obviously the first two, which involve Marcus Mariota. I agree completely that Mariota is very likely to be drafted second overall, whether that be by the Titans, the Eagles, or some other team that moves up for him.

The second Mariota bet is the one that gets interesting. Bovada placed the Titans as fairly heavy favorites to draft Mariota. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the Titans may just go ahead and take him at #2 simply for the value he possesses, whether they like him or not, and then deal him later. In other words, even if Mariota is drafted by the Titans and you see him on TV wearing a Tennessee hat, don't expect the Mariota chatter to just go away.
