The Baltimore Ravens will return from their bye week in Week 9 to take on the Minnesota Vikings in a cross-conference matchup.

The Vikings enter this game with a 3-4 record having blown a lead against the Cooper Rush-led Dallas Cowboys a week ago. With their backs against the wall, how will they respond?

Meanwhile, the Ravens used the bye week to mentally and physically recover following a stunning blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

Both teams are looking for a major bounce-back performance in this one. Let’s take a look at some of the best player prop bets to take a chance on this week.

1. Lamar Jackson, QB, Ravens: 1.5 passing touchdowns (o/u)

Lamar Jackson has slipped into a bit of a slump over his last two weeks after a stretch of incredible performances. Jackson has thrown for just 424 yards combined over the last two weeks with two passing touchdowns to go along with two interceptions.

Despite his excellent season, Jackson has only managed to throw for more than one touchdown in a single game this season — that coming in his miraculous four-touchdown game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Vikings’ pass defense is middle-of-the-pack, but they rank very well when it comes to touchdowns allowed. Minnesota has only surrendered nine passing touchdowns this season which ranks second-best in the entire NFL.

Don’t count on Lamar Jackson throwing more than one passing touchdown in a game for only the second time this season against this defense.

Best Bet: UNDER
