Best NFL RB rushing props Championship Sunday

Each weekend throughout the NFL season we will look at some of the top RB prop bet options to consider.

Joe Mixon (Over 0.5 touchdowns / 14.5 rush attempts)

With three starting offensive linemen either on I.R. or doubtful to play in the AFC Championship, the Bengals should continue to protect Joe Burrow with a quick passing game and a run-heavy approach. That game plan allowed Mixon to carry 20 times for 105 yards against a solid Bills defense last week and he managed 88 rushing yards on 21 attempts in the AFC Championship last year. That production came despite the Chiefs building an early 21-3 lead, and Patrick Mahomes (ankle) might not have as much early success as he battles through injury.

The Chiefs have allowed 123 rushing YPG at a 5.3 YPC clip over their last three playoff games and coughed up 4.9 YPC at home this season. Over their last three games, the Chiefs have given up an equal amount of rushing and passing scores, so Mixon is a solid bet to find the end zone again.

Miles Sanders (Under 50.5 rushing yards / Under 14.5 rush attempts) 

The 49ers are almost impossible to run against, so the Eagles may have to take a different approach after rolling the Giants for 283 rushing yards last week. Sanders produced 83 yards on 17 carries in that victory, but he was completely stymied in Week 13 when the Eagles hosted a Titans defense that forces the highest pass-play rate with a run-funnel approach. The Niners forced the second-highest pass-play rate and tied Tennessee with the lowest YPC (3.4) average allowed this season.

Sanders is also splitting time with Kenneth Gainwell, who played on 38% of offensive snaps and out-gained Sanders with 121 scrimmage yards in the Divisional Round. When the Eagles have been under center, Sanders is only getting a 15% carry rate, which is one of the lowest marks among all RBs in the NFL. He’s seen very low volume in the passing game as well with a 5.2% target share, so consider taking the under on 60.5 combined rushing and receiving yards.

Most RB rushing yards

This wager propositions bettors to predict which player will compile the most rushing yards over the course of the season. Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is the favorite to lead the NFL in rushing yards this coming season as he was +450 at DraftKings Sportsbook on Aug. 17. A $10 bet on Taylor to pull it off at those odds would result in a $45 profit.

Most RB rushing TDs

This prop asks bettors to predict which player will compile the most rushing scores over the course of the season. There is plenty of overlap with the favorites to lead the NFL in rushing yards. But some tailbacks are considered more likely to convert short rushing scores. For instance, Bengals RB Joe Mixon was +1400 to lead the league in rushing yards in August. But was +900 to lead the NFL in rushing TDs.

RB totals: Rushing yards over/under

Prop bets on individual players are available on a season-long and on a weekly basis. For example, Dalvin Cook might be projected to rush for 1,150.5 yards over the course of the season. And somewhere between 60 and 90 yards in the upcoming Vikings game. Weekly prop bets are usually available a few days before kickoff.

RB totals: Rushing TDs over/under

The same props are available to predict how many rushing touchdowns a player will compile on a season-long or on a weekly basis. The projected number is usually in single digits. On a weekly basis, player props for rushing scores will usually be offered with a decimal such as 1.5 or 2.5 rushing scores, to avoid a “push” where the player hits exactly 2 rushing scores and the bettor simply gets their wager back.

RB totals: Rushing + receiving yards over/under

In an increasingly pass-heavy league, many RBs are piling up yardage as runners and receivers. Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara are the prime examples of those dual threats, and are amongst the RBs listed with rushing + receiving props. This prop can also be listed as the scrimmage yards and will be projected somewhere around 1,000 yards on a season-long basis. These bets are also available on a weekly basis and adjust depending on matchups and other factors.
