Best prop bets for Raiders vs the Giants in Week 9 of the 2021 NFL season
2. Rushing Yards: Josh Jacobs over 60.5 (-115)
One key for the Raiders in their matchup with the New York Giants will be establishing the run, something they were doing their last time out against Philadelphia. Josh Jacobs was having a terrific game before leaving early due to an injury to his chest, as he was averaging nearly five yards per carry across six totes.
On Sunday, Jacobs goes into the game with a healthy designation, and behind an offensive line that has played much better the past few weeks. New York has an excellent secondary, but have struggled against the run, so that is an area the Raiders need to key on in this matchup, especially early on.
Jacobs’ season-high for rushing yards this season in a game has been only been 53 yards, a number I believe he will eclipse in this matchup. Darrel Williams and Derrick Gore each rushed for nearly 50 yards against the Giants on Monday night, and they are nowhere near the back that Jacobs is, so expect the over in the 60.5 mark.
