Ezekiel Elliott Rushing Yards O/U
- Over 74.5 -114
- Under 74.5 -114
While Elliott has lost out on some touches, never exceeding 21 touches in a game this season, he’s managed to hit over this number of yards three times in his six games.
His highs are very high, which gives him an average of 86.83 rushing yards per game, mostly due to his two 100+ yard games this year. Minnesota’s defense is very bad against the rush, and they give up an average of 128.0 rushing yards per game.
However, Zeke will have to contend with Tony Pollard, who will be taking some of the chances to gash Minnesota’s weak defense away from him.
Tony Pollard Rushing Yards O/U
- Over 37.5 -114
- Under 37.5 -114

Pollard is averaging 61 rushing yards per game, and he’s had as many as 109 in one game, back in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
That week was the only week of the season that Pollard outgained Zeke on the ground, and their head-to-head odds reflect this discrepancy.
Ezekiel Elliott Vs. Tony Pollard Head To Head
- Ezekiel Elliott More Rush Yards -667
- Tony Pollard More Rush Yards +334
It seems clear that Pollard will be the complementary piece in this relationship, as he’s never received more than 14 rushing attempts in a game this year.
However, he has explosive potential, and NFL betting fans should be aware that his usage is undeniably keeping Zeke from being the dominant statistical force he was in previous years.
