How Does Zeke Elliott’s Slump Impact His Prop Betting Odds

  • Ezekiel Elliott may have a diminished role, but he can still shine for the Dallas Cowboys.
  • Elliott has -115 odds to go over 35.5 rushing yards.
  • He went over 35.5 rushing yards all but two games in the regular season – but those two games were his most recent.

Total Rushing Yards - Ezekiel Elliott Odds

  • Over 35.5 -115
  • Under 35.5 -115

Elliott has -115 odds on either side of 35.5 rushing yards, a number that he hit in every game this season – except his last two.

He put up ten yards on eight attempts against the Washington Commanders in Week 18, and a genuinely concerning 27 yards on 13 attempts against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card round.

It’s possible that Elliott just doesn’t have the juice for January football, but it’s still worth noting that he’d never gone below the 35.5 mark this year before those two games.

  • Over 5.5 -110
