There’s nothing imposing about Chubb’s matchup against the Giants. New York has a league-average run defense, ranking 14th in Football Outsiders’ DVOA.
But Chubb is anything but average — he’s one of the best pure runners in football, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s playing behind one of the NFL’s best offensive lines. The Browns also run the ball at the third-highest rate.
NFL NextGenStats has a metric that measures how many rushing yards a ball-carrier is expected to gain based on the location/speed direction of blockers and defenders. Well, in Chubb’s three NFL seasons, he finished second and third before taking over first (by a mile) in Rush Yards Over Expected per attempt this season.
As 6.5-point favorites (check real-time odds), this is a prime spot to expect a max workload for Chubb:
- Games won between 1-10 points (5): 118 rush yards
- Games lost or won by 10-plus points (4): 74 rush yards
I would bet this up to 79.5 yards, but here are his projected chances of going over or under various lines based on my 10,000 player prop simulations:
