Nick Chubb Odds
Finally, the future looks bright in Cleveland on the back of a standout 2020 campaign and a postseason run culminating with a divisional round appearance. For several years, the Browns were enjoying a lot of hype, but not until last season did everything come together according to those lofty expectations. And it's no accident that it coincided with the advent of Kevin Stefanski.
The first-year head coach proved to be Cleveland's missing factor. The vital cog needed to spin the wheel of talent to succeed and drive the Browns into the postseason for the first time since 2002. Stefanski raised Cleveland's profile as one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL. The Browns had the third-best rushing offense in the league totaling 2,374 rushing yards and an average of 148.4 rushing yards per game. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt carried the workload by combining for 1,908 rushing yards; thus, emerging as one of the best one-two punch running backs in the game.
The Browns finished on an 11-5-0 record and then went 1-1-0 in the playoffs; most notably, they upset the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs. The potent and methodical ground attack was integral to Cleveland's success, and every piece of that rushing attack promises to stay the same next season. All five starting offensive linemen are returning, along with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Another year of experience will make them better, which is concerning for the rest of the field.
So, heading into 2021, books dub Cleveland Browns as legitimate contenders in Super Bowl 56 betting. As it stands, Cleveland Browns Odds are the sixth-best odds on the SBLVI board. Books have also singled out several rising stars on the roster for MVP consideration, including Nick Chubb. However, the running back, who just signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Browns, is amongst the longshots in the betting.
Nick Chubb Rushing Yards Odds
Nick Chubb played 12 games in the regular season, but he still managed to finish seventh overall amongst rushers in the NFL with 1,067 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry and 88.9 rushing yards per game. Notably, the star running back with just one fumble had the steadiest hands on Cleveland's offense. In the postseason, Chubb twice led his side in rushing, putting up a total of 145 rushing yards and twice for big gains (20-plus yards). He averaged 4.7 yards per carry and 72.5 yards per game.
During the postseason, Chubb was a key component of Cleveland's offense, demonstrating dual-threat skills in rushing and receiving, especially in the wild card round. The Browns defied the NFL odds and upset the highly fancied Pittsburgh Steelers 48-37 in the wildcard round, with Chubb scampering for 76 rushing yards and 69 receiving yards and a touchdown. In the divisional round, the Browns were defeated 22-17 by the Kansas City Chiefs, but, once again, Chubb finished as Cleveland's lead rusher with13 carries for 69 yards.
Books tip Chubb as the third-best bet after Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook for most rushing yards in the regular season. Nick Chubb To Lead The NFL In Rushing Yards Odds is priced at +850. As well, Chubb is projected to have OVER or UNDER 1,350.5 rushing yards in 2021. Based on Chubb's output last season, along with his overall performance since joining the NFL, he's correctly priced. Let's face it, Henry has set the bar high, and all running backs aspire to emulate the Titans star.
Nick Chubb Total Rushing TDs Odds
For most rushing touchdowns in the regular season, Chubb is the fourth-best bet. This time the Cleveland running back nips at the heels of Henry, Cook, and Christian McCaffrey. Nick Chubb to lead the NFL in Rushing TD Odds are priced at +900. In three years, Chubb has scored 28 rushing touchdowns, with 8 in each of his first two seasons and 12 last season. By his 2020 stats, Chubb averaged 1 touchdown per game, which means he was potentially on pace to score 16 had he played an entire regular season. Something to consider with prop betting. Books project Chubb to score 11.5 (Over/Under -115) touchdowns in 2021.
Nick Chubb MVP Odds
Nick Chubb MVP Odds are very long; he is an afterthought in the race at +12500. Chubb Odds put him way down the pecking order, behind the stiff competition from other running backs in the league. Moreover, Chubb falls significantly behind Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (+3500 to win the MVP award). For Chubb to win the MVP award, he would have to have a career-setting season and one that would outdo all that Derrick Henry has accomplished thus far. That's a tough ask.
