North Carolina has a new running back this season in Tennessee transfer Ty Chandler. He’ll be trying to fill the shoes of UNC’s dynamic running back tandem from last year—Michael Carter and Javonte Williams, both departed for the NFL.
The bookmakers at SportsBettingDime.com aren’t sure he’ll reach the same level of production, however. They’ve released preseason prop betting lines for individual statistics of key Power Five players.
Chandler’s over/under on rushing yards for the upcoming season is 659.5. His previous season high in four seasons at Tennessee was 655, set in 2019. He had 456 yards last year. Williams and Carter combined for 2,385 yards for UNC last year.
Chandler’s over/under hurdle ranks 11th among ACC running backs, just behind Miami’s Cam’Ron Harris and just ahead of Boston College’s Travis Levy.
