How the public is betting most rushing yards in 2021 NFL Playoffs

We take a look at five players in the 2021 NFL Playoffs and their odds to see who will have the most rushing yards.

After 17 weeks of the NFL regular season action, the postseason is finally here with Super Wild Card Weekend beginning on Saturday. There will be a total of six wildcard games across two days that will feature some of the league’s best players. However, we cannot forget about Packers running back Aaron Jones, who we’ll see in the divisional round.

DraftKings Sportsbook has compiled the odds which player will rush for the most yards during the 2021 NFL postseason. If you think that the Titans might get upset by the Ravens on Sunday, then placing a bet on Derrick Henry may not be the best looking at the rest of the field.

Superstar running back Derrick Henry has the best odds (+300) to lead the playoffs in rushing yards. He is fifth in the betting handle, with 11% of the action but ranked third with 13% of the bets. Alvin Kamara (+800) leads the way in handle with 20%, along with 20% of bets. Meanwhile, Aaron Jones (+650) has the largest percentage of bets (21%) and ranked fourth with 13% of the handle. The rest of the top five most bet include Chris Carson (+2000) at 16% of handle and 3% of bets and Lamar Jackson (+1100) with 14% of handle and 9% of bets.

Looking at the top five most bet, I don’t think there is another running back that should be in consideration. If the Colts had a better opponent, I would say Jonathan Taylor, who has been on a tear recently. But their season could come to an end on Saturday against the Bills.

Along those same lines, if the Titans get past Baltimore then Henry is a great bet to lead the playoffs in rushing. He rushed for a career-high 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. Henry also had three 200-rushing yard performances and multiple 100-yard outings.
