Raiders news: Josh Jacobs bets on underdog to lead NFL in yardage
If you’re a sports bettor and think Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will have a huge 2022 season under new coach Josh McDaniels, you might be interested in the betting odds set by our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook.
There’s great value for Jacobs, who the Raiders declined to exercise the fifth-year option on, in a DraftKings bet on who will lead the NFL in rushing yardage in 2022. Jacobs is priced at +3000. It is tied for the 15th lowest (best) rating in the league. Johnathan Taylor of the Indianapolis Colts is the +500 favorite and Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans is priced at +550 betting favorites.
Taylor led the NFL with 1,811 yards in 2021. Jacobs was 15th in the NFL with 872 rushing yards in 2021. If he can stay healthy, he could be a decent long-term bet at a great price.
