Week 1: Peterson Props and DFS Odds

Adrian Peterson will take the field on Monday night for the first time in a year, and the sportsbooks are featuring the Minnesota Vikings running back in plenty of prop wagers.

For starters, Peterson has been listed at +180 to score more Week 1 fantasy points than the Green Bay Packers' Eddie Lacy (+150) and the Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch (+180) at Bovada.

Though there are some question marks around the Vikings running back, there is no doubt that he has worked well with a chip on his shoulder. After dealing with knee injuries during the 2011 season, he came back the next season and promptly ran for 2,097 yards and won the NFL MVP.

The three defenses these three running backs will face in Week 1 allowed an average of 107.9 rushing yards per game last season, which is greatly reduced by the San Francisco 49ers who were dismantled this offseason.

Peterson Trails Luck on nfl MVP Odds

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has already put up staggering numbers despite only being 25 years old. Through his first three seasons in the NFL the pivot has amassed 12,957 passing yards while tossing 86 touchdowns.

And after leading the NFL in passing touchdowns while coming in third in passing yards last season, Luck is currently listed as the +300 betting favorite at  Bovada on the odds to win the NFL MVP this season.

Not surprisingly that MVP odds list is dominated by quarterbacks with nine of the top 11 lines belonging to signal callers, with Peterson (+1600) and J.J. Watt (+2000) bucking the trend.

Odds expect Peterson to run all day

Peterson is the +300 favorite to win the rushing title this upcoming season at Bovada.

However, those odds are close with the six running backs behind AP being listed at either +800 or +900 at the sportsbook. After those running backs, though, there is a dropoff with no other runner listed higher than +1600.
