D’Onta Foreman prop bets

  • Over 56.5 rushing yards at -114 (FanDuel Sportsbook)

The Carolina Panthers are relying heavily on D’Onta Foreman right now. When the running back gains early momentum, wins normally follow, so his contribution in Week 17 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is of paramount importance.

Foreman’s gone from an afterthought to one of the league’s most productive backs since the Panthers traded Christian McCaffrey to the San Francisco 49ers. This rags-to-riches story could take another positive step against the Buccaneers, who are giving up 120.3 rushing yards per game in 2022.

It will be a challenge to set the tone – especially if Tampa Bay gets impressive nose tackle Vita Vea back from a calf problem – but last weekend’s performance should be another confidence boost to where Foreman, Chuba Hubbard, and the offensive line are concerned.

Another dominant outing from Foreman would all but guarantee a new deal with the Panthers this offseason. In all honesty, that should be a foregone conclusion already, but the former Texas star can cement his importance to the team’s plans if he comes through in a high-pressure setting.

Foreman has the weight of the world on his shoulders this weekend. But he’s risen to every challenge so far and backing him to go over 56.5 rushing yards at -114 with FanDuel Sportsbook (bet $114 to win $100) could be worth its weight in gold.
