Rushing Yards Prop Betting NFLToday, we’re going to discuss 2020 NFL rushing yards props.

They have more than 250+ NFL regular season prop markets for 2020 right now. In case you missed last week’s article, we discussed 2020 NFL receiving touchdowns props.

The goal with this market is to predict whether a player will go over or under the rushing total listed at Bovada. I’ve targeted multiple running backs (RBs) that’ll exceed their rushing total in 2020.

Last season (2019), 15 players (14 RBs and 1 QB) rushed for 1000+ yards.

That was a huge increase from the previous two seasons. In 2017 and 2018, only nine players rushed for 1000+ yards each year. The last time we’ve seen 15+ players rush for 1000+ yards in a single regular season was back in 2012 when 16 players rushed for 1000+ yards.

That was also the year Adrian Peterson rushed for 2097 rushing yards, which is still the second most rushing yards a player has accumulated during a single regular season in NFL history.

Eric Dickerson rushed for 2105 yards during the 1984 NFL regular season.

NFL Regular Season Rushing Yards Prop Odds and Picks

Christian McCaffrey rushed for 1387 rushing yards (3rd) in 2019. He also led all RBs with 1005 receiving yards. He easily led the league in all-purpose yards (2392) last season.

Last season, McCaffrey had six games with 100+ rushing yards. Carolina ended the regular season on an eight-game losing streak and McCaffrey only rushed for 100+ yards once during that streak.

With Teddy Bridgewater taking over at QB, I expect Carolina to be more competitive in 2020.

That would bode well for McCaffrey who would end up with more carries than last season. He still had 287 carries (4th), but he’d exceed 300+ carries if the Panthers were winning games.

McCaffrey is a contender to lead the NFL in rushing yards in 2020. While his rushing yards total is among the highest, we’re getting plus money on him simply matching his 2019 production.

That’s a bet I’m willing to back, especially with the Panthers improving at QB.

Green Bay would be wise to run the football more often with Jones.

In 2019, Jones rushed for 1084 yards (12th) on 236 carries (15th). He was also tied for first in rushing touchdowns (16). Now in the final year of his rookie contract, Jones will look to build upon 2019.

Looking at the Packers game logs from last season, Jones rushed the football 20+ times in just three games. In each of those games, Jones rushed for 100+ yards and the Packers won the game.

Aaron Rodgers didn’t get any new weapons this off-season, so I expect the run game will be more prominent. One concern is that Jamaal Williams (107 carries for 460 rushing yards) is back and GB drafted AJ Dillon with a second-round draft pick (#62). Both will take touches away from Jones.

However, Jones should still be the lead guy in most situations after a stellar 2019 season.

Dalvin Cook rushed for 1135 yards (10th) on 250 carries (8th) in 2019. He started last season on fire, rushing for 100+ yards in five of the Vikings first seven games of the regular season.

After the first seven games, Cook failed to rush for 100+ yards in any of the team’s next seven games. He missed the final two games of the regular season and still had 1135 yards on the ground.

If he can play a full season, he’ll finish with more than 250 carries in 2020.

Alexander Mattison (100 carries for 462 yards) and Mike Boone (49 carries for 273 yards) are both back in the mix, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Vikings run the football more often in 2020.

The Vikings traded WR Stefon Diggs and that’s going to hurt the passing game.

Cook is a big play threat that can take the football to the house on any play. He finished last year with 7 rushing plays of 20+ yards, which was good for 9th in the league.

These are my top three best bets for this market.

Betting on player performances is a great way to find value with season-long props. You will need to lock up your money for the season, but think of the bet as an investment.

You can more than double your investment in about four months. That’s tough to achieve in other markets and why we love betting these NFL regular season props at Bovada.
