An hour later, the book subtracted a zero from those odds, and now it’s 4-1 to be the next Panther: Young is still the heavy favorite, and most books have him at least a -1000 favorite.
The dramatic change in odds came amid a Reddit post by an anonymous user that apparently laid out the Panthers’ plan to select him as the No. 1 pick.
«Will Levis currently has +4000 for the No. 1 overall pick. Well ladies and gentlemen, he’s telling his friends and family that Carolina is taking him on Thursday. You’re welcome,» the Reddit user said.
When asked who his source was, the anonymous poster replied: «Will Levis.»
A DraftKings spokesperson told ESPN the change in odds was believed to have been due to the Reddit post.
«Given the nature of the draft, we drastically reduced the price based on this action and eventually reached a price where the betting stopped,» the spokesperson said. «We’re still seeing some small bets trickle down to the current price, but the speculation is that all the action came on the back of a Reddit post.»
But Levis’ outburst has now put him as the favorite to be the Houston Texans’ second pick after Ohio State’s CJ Stroud had long been.
Action Network says that on April 17, Levis was +2000 to place second overall. A day later, he suddenly went up to +180.
Now it has -140, via Odds Shark.

Teams are suddenly seeing something in Levis, but apparently Stroud hasn’t done himself many favors.
According to The Athletic, Stroud had the worst S2 score of any quarterback. with 18%. Young’s 98% was the best. The S2 replaced the Wonderlic and «measures split-second information processing and decision making.»
In fact, it’s not just Levis the favorite over Stroud to go second: Some books have Alabama edger Will Anderson and Texas A&M edger Tyree Wilson at lower odds than Stroud to go to Houston, who they also have the 12th pick via the Cleveland Browns from the Deshaun Watson trade.
