Super Bowl Rushing props

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

Miles Sanders (Under 60.5 rushing yards)

Philadelphia has enough depth in the backfield to make it appealing to take the under on Sanders. The Eagles used a three-man rotation against the 49ers with Kenneth Gainwell playing on 40% of snaps and handling 12 carries, while Boston Scott mixed in for 24.6% of offensive snaps. Sanders turned his 11 carries into 42 yards, but did little to separate from that committee. His prop is rising because the Eagles offensive line is elite in goal-line and short-yardage situations, but Jalen Hurts is also a threat to get the ball in those scenarios. Sanders depended on positive game script and excellent blocking to average 74.6 rushing YPG this season. Neither of those aspects is guaranteed against a Chiefs team that has far more Super Bowl experience, a prolific offense, and a top-tier defensive tackle in Chris Jones. 

Kenneth Gainwell (Over 19.5 rushing yards / 34.5 rushing + receiving yards)

If the Eagles fall behind in the Super Bowl, Gainwell is clearly the coaching staff’s clear preference in passing situations. Kansas City coughed up the most receptions to RBs this season and Gainwell ran 10 routes in blowout wins over the Giants and 49ers, earning a 39.5% target rate on those high-percentage looks. His role is expanding at the expense of Sanders due to his versatility, and it might be easier for the Eagles to press their advantages around the edges with Jones patrolling the middle of the defensive line for Kansas City.

Jerick McKinnon (Under 23.5 rushing yards / 45.5 rushing + receiving yards)

Isiah Pacheco is a New Jersey native with high hopes of performing well in the Super Bowl and he’s been dominating work between the tackles for good reason. McKinnon only handled one carry for 4 yards against KC and Pacheco was held to 26 rushing yards on 10 carries despite showing impressive burst. Pacheco also caught five of six targets while McKinnon managed 17 yards on four targets against Cincy. The Eagles allowed the ninth-fewest rushing YPG (88) to RBs this season and did a phenomenal job bottling up Deebo Samuel (6 carries, -9 yards) when the Niners used gadget plays in the NFC Championship. McKinnon is more of a threat to catch the ball, but was conspicuously absent in the second half against the Bengals despite the absence of three starting receivers. Now Clyde Edwards-Helaire is expected to suit up and that could further muddle the backfield picture.

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.
