Melvin Gordon 2015 Prop Odds
SAN DIEGO, CA (The Spread) - After being selected by the Chargers with the No. 15 overall pick in last week's NFL draft, how many yards will Melvin Gordon rush for in 2015?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for rushing yards for Gordon in 2015 has been set at 900.5 yards while the over/under for total rushing touchdowns has been set at 6.
Gordon rushed for 4,915 yards and 45 touchdowns in his four-year career with the Wisconsin Badgers. He saved his best for 2014, rushing for 2,587 yards on 343 carries with 29 rushing touchdowns and three receiving scores. Perhaps fearful that the Texans would take him at No. 16, the Chargers traded up with the 49ers in order to land Gordon at pick No. 15.
For sake of reference, rookie Jeremy Hill rushed for 1,124 yards on 222 attempts with the Bengals last year and scored nine touchdowns. The Rams' Tre Mason also gained 765 yards on 179 carries and scored four rushing touchdowns.
