Best Ravens Bets Week 11
Lamar Jackson OVER 194.5 passing yards (-113)
Assuming he’s healthy and playing, Lamar Jackson will be up against a Panthers pass defense that has quietly been pretty solid this year. Led by young star Jaycee Horn, the Panthers’ secondary has held its own.
However, they’ll be down two starting safeties in Juston Burris and Myles Hartsfield (Burris’ replacement which doesn’t bode well for Carolina. That’s especially true with Mark Andrews expected to return in this one.
Andrews has been sidelined with knee and shoulder injuries, but the expectation is that Jackson will have his top target back in Week 11. That could mean a big passing day is in order for the former MVP.
I’d expect Jackson to throw for at least 200 yards in this game, provided the game flow allows for it.
D.J. Moore UNDER 52.5 receiving yards (-113)
It’s been a difficult season for Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore, due in large part to the team’s lackluster quarterback play. Moore is on pace for his worst season since his rookie campaign and hasn’t topped 30 yards in either of the last two weeks.
Expect that to continue in Week 11.
Mayfield has struggled mightily this season and Moore will be up against Marlon Humphrey is has put together one of the best seasons of any cornerback this year.
A combination of bad quarterback play and an excellent Ravens secondary doesn’t suggest that Moore will hit the over on his projection this week. Bet the under.
Ravens moneyline (-670)
This one is fairly straightforward. You might not win much money with this bet, but if you’re looking for the safest feasible wager in this game, this one is probably it.
The Ravens should win this game. They’re 11-3 following bye weeks in the John Harbaugh era, a record that ranks second in the NFL since 2008. On top of that, they’re one of the hottest teams in the NFL having last lost over a month ago.
They have both history and recent performances on their side.
While betting on the 13-point spread might be a little risky, you should feel comfortable betting on the Ravens’ moneyline.
