Chris Johnson rushing yards props favor UNDER 2000

If Chris Johnson rushes for his season average in his final three games, he will top the 2,000-yard mark.

Why then would someone offer tempting odds on that happening and invite you to take their money?

That’s the situation at {URL=http://sports.bodog.com/welcome/2761707/}one online sportsbook {/URL}where the dynamic tailback is listed as -150 underdog to eclipse the mark. It means you need to wager $150 to win $100 if you think he will fall short.

If you think he will become the sixth player to turn the trick, it’s a +120 underdog payout ($100 pats $120).
“Johnson has been sensational, but to expect him to surpass his average three more games in a row is a bit much,” said Richard Gardner of {URL=http://sports.bodog.com/welcome/2761707/}bodog. {/URL}

“He faces three defenses that are about league-average in stuffing the run, so there are no cupcakes for him.”
Indeed, the Titans are coming off a rout of the Rams and face Miami and San Diego at home before ending the year at Seattle. One ranks higher than 13th in the league in yards-per-rush defense, according to the {URL= http://www.oddsshark.com/Stats/DefensiveStats/Football/NFL/YARDS_PER_RUSH}sortable NFL defensive stats here.{/URL}

OddsShark.com football analyst Jack Randall said his 1,626 yards means that if he gets exactly his 125 YPG average three more times, he’ll have 2,001 yards.

“He’s gone over 100 yards in eight straight games, but he has been under his average the past two weeks, so I take that as a small back starting to wear down a bit,” he said. “But the Titans have been on a roll and winning can replenish your enthusiasm for sure.”

The others, in case you were wondering:

1973 – OJ Simpson
1984 – Eric Dickerson
1997 – Barry Sanders
1998 – Terrell Davis
2003 – Jamal Lewis
