Oddsmakers seem to be high on Dalvin Cook having an impressive 2021 season for the Minnesota Vikings.

After injuries caused his career with the Minnesota Vikings to get off to a rough start, Dalvin Cook has certainly made up for lost time during his last two seasons in the NFL.

Since 2019, only Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans has accumulated more yards from scrimmage, more rushing touchdowns, and averaged more rushing yards per game than Cook.

With the NFL regular season now consisting of 17 games, there’s a chance that the Vikings running back could break several team and league records in 2021.

Dalvin Cook anticipated to have an outstanding performance for the 2021 Minnesota Vikings

Last season, Cook‘s 1,557 rushing yards were the second-most in the NFL behind Henry and the 2,027 yards he gained on the ground. The margin between the two could have been even smaller, but the Minnesota running back ended up appearing in two less games than Henry in 2020.

Heading into the 2021 campaign, both running backs are expected to rank at the top of the rushing charts once again.

WynnBET currently has Henry with +250 odds to win the 2021 rushing title, while Cook has the next best odds at +550.

This basically means that the oddsmakers believe the Titans running back has a 28.6 percent chance to finish next season with the most rushing yards, while the Vikings playmaker has a 15.4 percent chance to end the 2021 campaign with the rushing crown.

While Cook only has the second-best betting odds for the rushing title right now, his odds to score the most rushing touchdowns in 2021 are actually tied for first.

Currently, WynnBET has Cook and Henry both with +450 odds (18.2 percent chance) to score the most touchdowns with their legs during the upcoming season. Jonathan Taylor of the Indianapolis Colts has the next best odds at +700 (12.5 percent chance).
