Running Back Superbowl Props

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Superbowl props on running backs are a popular area for wagering each year.

Super Bowl odds for Super Bowl XLIII show the Pittsburgh Steelers favored by 7 points against the Arizona Cardinals. The Steelers have the more potent running game and most of their running back Superbowl props focus on Willie Parker.

Superbowl props on Parker will be popular but the ones on Arizona’s Edgerrin James and Tim Hightower should also get attention.  The running back Superbowl props might not get as much attention this year because both teams have more than just one running back.  The Cardinals have James and Hightower while Pittsburgh has Parker, Mewelde Moore and Gary Russell. Let’s focus though on the two main backs, James and Parker in Superbowl props.

The number of rushing yards for Willie Parker in Superbowl props is 75.5 and you can bet over or under that total.  If you think Willie Parker will score a touchdown you can get yes at even money while no is a slight favorite in Super Bowl odds. With that number being so low you might also want to consider Parker as the first player to score a TD in the Super Bowl at odds of about 7-1. You can bet on how long Parker’s longest run will be in Superbowl props.  The number is set around 15.5 yards and you can bet over or under that number in Super Bowl odds.  The number of rushing attempts by Parker in Superbowl props is between 19.5 and 20.5 depending upon the line.

If you want to bet on Edgerrin James in Superbowl props you have similar choices.  His total rushing yardage number is 43.5.  The Super Bowl odds on him scoring a touchdown have the No at about -400 while the Yes is +350 or so in Super Bowl odds.  The longest run by James number is much lower than Parker’s at 9.5 yards.  The rushing attempts number is 13.5 for James in Superbowl props.

You may also be able to find props on Tim Hightower for Arizona since he splits time with James.  The props on Moore and Russell will be fewer since Parker gets the majority of the carries for the Steelers.
