Duke running back Mataeo Durant has spent the last three seasons splitting time with Deon Jackson. This year, with Jackson departed for the NFL, Durant will be the main workhorse in the Blue Devils backfield.
The bookmakers at SportsBettingDime.com think he’s up to the task. They’ve released preseason prop betting lines for individual statistics of key Power Five players.
Durant’s over/under on rushing yards for the upcoming season is 947.5. His previous season high in three years at Duke was 817, set last year. He and Jackson combined for 1,499 last year.
Durant’s over/under hurdle ranks fifth among ACC running backs, just behind Louisville’s Jalen Mitchell and just ahead of Syracuse’s Sean Tucker.
