Yes, this really is a thing you can bet on. 5Dimes and other sportsbooks have these props available right now for those who cannot get enough NFL Football wagering when no games are being played.
Here is a look at a variety of props with NFL odds and free picks to go along with them.
Saquon Barkley time Over 4.40 seconds +100
Saquon Barkley time Under 4.40 seconds -130
The former Penn State product is considered a remarkable physical specimen and he has the lowest listed time for running backs according to oddsmakers in the 40-yard dash. If Barkley is motivated, he has an excellent chance to go Under because of explosive start potential. There are football bettors out there who study this incredibly close and like Barkley for OVER 41 inches on vertical leap if he’s at 225 or less for weight.
Here are other running backs Over/Under betting odds, though we do not officially know if they will actually run.
Kerryon Johnson time Over 4.55 seconds -115
Kerryon Johnson time Under 4.55 seconds -115
I will lean Over with Johnson, who is already comfortable that his skills are sufficient enough and he does not need a super time in the 40 to justify his skill as an all-around back.
Nick Chubb time Over 4.54 seconds +165
Nick Chubb time Under 4.54 seconds -205
There has always been a segment of supposedly knowledgeable football experts who have doubted Chubb and my guess is he has something to prove.
Derrius Guice time Over 4.42 seconds +100
Derrius Guice time Under 4.42 seconds -120
Generally considered the best “pure” runner in the draft, I’ll back the OVER, believing Guice is not as fast as Barkley.
