COSTA RICA (Press Release) -- Sportsbook and Casino(tm) has released odds on the New York Giants, and San Diego Chargers first round selections in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The NFL Draft is scheduled for April 24-25, 2004 in New York, and the potential of Eli Manning following in his brother's footsteps as a number one selection seems almost inevitable.

"The Chargers are clearly lacking in the Quarterback category, and the Manning family has a reputation of breading some top notch football player's," said Rob Gillespie, President of Sportsbook and Casino. "Kerry Collins put in a lack luster performance for the Giants last season, and Jesse Palmer may be a little bit side tracked trying to choose a bride."

Unless the Chargers trade away they will be picking first in this years draft, and Manning would be a wise decision. Eli Manning is the current favorite at even 1/1 odds, with Iowa Offensive Tackle Robert Gallery close behind at 8/5. Another QB in the fray for the Chargers is Ben Roethlisberger, currently listed at 7/2 odds. The long shot first pick for the Chargers is Miami Junior Free Safety Sean Taylor, coming out of the gates at 20/1 odds.

While a number of teams exploited holes in the Giants game last season, the choices of player's are a little broader in the early going. Robert Gallery is the favorite to be the Giants first choice in this year's NFL Draft, currently listed at 5/4 odds. The common names being mentioned are also in the hunt, with Eli Manning at 2/1, and Ben Roethlisberger at 3/1 odds. The long shot choice for the G-Men is Oklahoma Defensive Tackle Tommie Harris, listed at 12/1 odds.

"Between the Giants, Jets, Raiders, and Eagles fans, the NFL Draft is always exciting to watch, and see which players get booed by fans," said Gillespie. "Lest we forget a certain Donovan McNabb getting booed to high heavens from the Eagles faithful, my oh my how times have changed in Philly."
