Rushing props for Week 4

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

Derrick Henry (Over 58.5 rushing yards / Over 14.5 attempts)

The Titans (+3) are going to lean on their run game per usual in a key AFC South clash at the Colts. Henry has topped 80 rushing yards in two competitive games to open the season and we can throw out the results of Tennessee’s beatdown in Buffalo. The forceful RB is averaging 112.3 rushing YPG at 4.9 YPC over his last seven meetings with Indy, which has an undersized defensive front. While the Colts are giving up a league-low 2.6 YPC (against teams that struggle to establish the run), they’re facing a high rush-play rate (45%) and will see a huge dose of Henry, who tends to wear defenses down with his physicality.

Antonio Gibson (Under 57.5 rushing yards / Under 74.5 rush + rec)

Washington’s offensive line has been a disaster so far with nine sacks allowed in their last game and Gibson has only managed 33 rushing yards on 13 carries with his squad playing catch up the past two weeks. He’s not a natural pass catcher and the Commanders can utilize J.D. McKissic in that role if they move into obvious passing situations. Micah Parsons, DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys front seven are elite, and have led that unit to the eighth-best ranking in terms of total DVOA defense. Gibson totaled 65 rushing yards over two meetings with Dallas last week and is a better bet for a short touchdown than big yardage in this matchup.

Dameon Pierce (Over 60.5 rushing yards)

Houston has taken an ultra-conservative approach under Lovie Smith and that means feeding rookie RB Dameon Pierce early and often. The Florida product racked up 80 rushing yards on 20 carries last week and his rushing prop is only slightly higher ahead of a decent matchup against the Chargers. With Joey Bosa (groin) out indefinitely, the Bolts might struggle to stop the run. Their offense is going to be far less prolific with Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, and Rashawn Slater either out or hobbled, so Houston (+5.5) could stick around long enough to get Pierce 15-20 totes again.

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.
