What are NFL rushing props?

Futures odds for the winner of the next Super Bowl can become available before the current one is even in the books. Other futures odds will come out a few months after the season comes to a close, including rushing props. Here’s a look at some of the top rushing props, but note that the exact offerings may vary by sportsbook.

Most rushing yards

For this prop, you’re placing your bets on which player you think will lead the league in rushing for the entire year. There are plenty of intriguing candidates to choose from season after season. If we look at some recent odds from the DraftKings sports app, here’s what the numbers looked like for a few favorites.

The positive odds across the board set the stage for some potentially lucrative returns. If you bet $10 on Taylor to lead the league and he goes on to do so, the return is $45, while a $100 wager could bring back $450.

While there’s no way to predict which backs will make it through the season unscathed, the injury risk should be accounted for while you’re making your choices. For example, if you’re not feeling great about a team’s offensive line, then betting on that club’s top back to lead the league wouldn’t be a good idea.

Most rushing TDs

This prop works the same as season-long yardage leaders with the goal of picking out which back will lead the league in rushing scores. Odds work in the same fashion: favorites up top, longshots on the bottom, and all other players in between.

Last season, Taylor was at the top of the charts with 18, followed by James Conner and Damien Harris, who tied for second with 15 apiece. Joe Mixon was fourth with 13, followed by Austin Ekeler with 12.

Most rushing attempts

The league leader in yardage also has a great chance to lead in attempts. You can bet on who will be the leader here as well at some online sportsbooks. Taylor also topped this category a season ago with 332, followed by Najee Harris with 307 and Joe Mixon at 292.

Player over/unders

Sportsbooks will also post over/under bets on individual running back totals. For example, DraftKings has made the below prop available for New York Jets rookie RB Breece Hall.

The bar has been set at 830.5 rushing yards. Bettors simply have to make the call on whether or not Hall will clear it. The odds are equal on both sides, but there can be some movement on the lines in response to betting volume.

As the offseason advances, we can expect to see more options listed, including player rushing TDs. Once the regular season gets underway, over/under rushing props will be available for each game on the docket.

Which RBs have the best chance to lead the league this season?

Over the offseason, Jonathan Taylor was the clear favorite to lead the league in rushing yards this season. The tough season for him and the Colts led to a shift at the top of the board. There was some jockeying for much of the season, but Josh Jacobs ended up taking the rushing crown with 1,653 yards. Derrick Henry finished in second with 1,538, while Nick Chubb was third at 1,525.

Who led the NFL in rushing last season?

Jonathan Taylor led the league last season, and the race wasn’t even close. Nick Chubb, Joe Mixon, Najee Harris, and Dalvin Cook rounded out the top five, but they were all 500+ yards behind the leader. Here are the top 10 finishers from last season and their totals.
