Betting on RBs in the Super Bowl: Pacheco vs. Sanders

  • Miles Sanders has -170 odds to have the most rushing yards in the Super Bowl.
  • Isiah Pacheco has -115 odds to go over 47.5 rushing yards.
  • Sanders has -130 odds to go over 60.5 rushing yards.

LAS VEGAS - With the Philadelphia Eagles being so focused on rushing, much of the conversation at online sportsbooks has revolved around Miles Sanders and his usage.

However, Isiah Pacheco is heavily important to the Chiefs’ success, as his ability to pound the rock on the ground can keep the defense off balance, and keep the Eagles’ dangerous pass rush on their toes.

Who will record the most Rushing Yards in the game?

  • Miles Sanders (PHI)-170
  • Isiah Pacheco (KC) +300
  • Jalen Hurts (PHI) +300
  • Kenneth Gainwell (PHI) +700
  • Jerick McKinnon (KC) +1200
  • Boston Scott (PHI) +2500
  • Patrick Mahomes (KC) +3300

Sanders is the favorite to record the most rushing yards in the game on the NFL betting markets, which makes sense given his stature as the starting RB on the Eagles, who are a run-first team.

The sportsbooks give Pacheco and Hurts equal odds to be the next most likely person to do it, which is not a good sign for Pacheco.

Pacheco’s rushing yards odds have him sitting at 47.5 for the game, with -115 odds on both sides of the matchup.

His status as a rookie RB might have led the online sportsbooks to underrate him, but the trends are definitely in favor of an over here.

Total Rushing Yards - Miles Sanders (PHI)

  • Over 60.5 -130
  • Under 60.5 EVEN

Sanders has -130 odds to hit the over on 60.5 rushing yards. In 19 games, he went over that number 11 times.

He is coming off of a fairly uninspiring 42-yard performance in a blowout win over the San Francisco 49ers, but he did so on 11 rushes, which is reasonable efficiency.

Sanders and Pacheco will face off in the Super Bowl, which will happen on Super Bowl Sunday.
