Ravens vs. Broncos top prop bets to make for NFL Week 4 game
2. Lamar Jackson, QB, Ravens: 65.5 rushing yards (o/u)
Lamar Jackson is coming off his best game of the season against the Detroit Lions in which he finished 16-of-31 for 287 yards and a touchdown in the air while adding 58 yards on the ground.
But this is a case where the numbers don’t do it justice.
Jackson’s day would have looked much better on paper had Marquise Brown hauled in even one or two of his three massive drops this past week. If all three are caught, Jackson probably comes close to 400 yards passing.
However, he might have a tougher time throwing against a Broncos secondary that is arguably the best in the league.
The likes of Kyle Fuller, Patrick Surtain, Bryce Callahan, Justin Simmons, and Kareem Jackson are a far cry from the lackluster Lions secondary Jackson and the Ravens faced last week.
As a result, Jackson might be forced to rely more on his legs. Something we all know he has no problem with.
Jackson has rushed for over 85 yards in two of his first three games with last week providing his lowest total of the season. But that’s primarily because he was able to find so much success passing the football.
Expect the Ravens to lean on Jackson and the ground game against an uber-talented group of defensive backs.
Best Bet: OVER
