- Jaylen Waddle has -250 odds to break the NFL record for receptions in a rookie season.
- Jonathan Taylor has a +150 betting line to have the longest streak of consecutive games with a rushing touchdown.
LAS VEGAS – Jaylen Waddle and Jonathan Taylor have odds listed to break various NFL records in the 2021 season.
Jaylen Waddle: Rookie Receptions Record
The Miami Dolphins spent a first-round pick on Waddle in the most recent draft and so far he’s been well worth it. Waddle currently had 86 receptions through 13 games as he’s averaging 6.6 receptions per game. NFL betting sites have odds listed that show his expectation to break the all-time record for rookie receptions.
Waddle To Break Rookie Reception Record
- Yes, Over 101.5 Receptions -250
- No, Under 101.5 Receptions +170
The current record holder is Anquan Boldin who caught 101 passes as a rookie in 2003. Assuming Waddle plays all 17 games of the season, Waddle needs to average just 4.0 receptions per game for the rest of the season.
Considering he has had at least four receptions in each of the last eight weeks, he seems like a sure bet to break the record barring an injury.
Jonathan Taylor: Consecutive Games With Rush TD Record
Taylor has run for a touchdown in 10 straight games after going the first three games of the season without one. LaDainian Tomlinson holds the current record, rushing for a touchdown in 12 straight games to end his 2004 season. Online betting sites give Taylor underdog odds to break the record.
Taylor To Break Consecutive Rush TD Record
- Yes, Scores A Rush TD In 13 Straight Games +150
- No, Doesn’t Score A Rush TD In 13 Straight Games -200
While the +150 odds seem enticing, there’s probably better value on betting on Taylor to be an anytime touchdown scorer in all of the next three weeks. His odds, either way, should carry value as he’s been undoubtedly the best running back in the league this season.
However, the toughest matchup of the season comes in Week 15 for Taylor as he’ll play the New England Patriots. The Pats have allowed the least amount of rushing touchdowns this season and are allowing just 0.5 rushing touchdowns per game. If he can get past New England with a touchdown his odds will likely get much shorter to break the record.
