Lamar Jackson Under 61.5 rushing yards (-115)

"Everyone knows how dangerous Jackson is as a runner, so you may be wondering why I'm jumping on the Under on this prop. One reason is that Jackson is evolving as a passer, as he showed last week by throwing for 316 yards in a game that was never really in doubt while attempting a season-high 37 passes. That's typically a game where you figure Jackson isn't going to throw much, but with his receiving options getting healthier as the season goes along, we could see the Ravens as more of a pass-centric team than we've grown accustomed to. Another reason why I like this Under is that it appears Jackson isn't going to run a bunch if he doesn't need to, as he had just 28 yards on seven rushes last week. If this one is a comfortable Ravens win as the line expects, I think Jackson will be content to win in the passing game and hand the ball off more than rushing for a bunch of yards and taking unnecessary hits."

Carson Wentz Over 9.5 rushing yards (-105)

"Not only are we playing Under on the renown rushing quarterback's rushing total, but we're going to go ahead and take the Over on the quarterback he's facing who has been recovering from injuries to both ankles. There are a few reasons I like Wentz to top this number. First, he was able to return to a full practice for the first time this week, which tells me he's either back to full health or close to it. That's important, as he totaled 60 rushing yards in his first two games of the year while topping 20 in both before suffering the injury. The Ravens are also going to blitz the heck out of the Colts QB, and that will allow Wentz to step up and take off if he sees a path to the sticks. The Ravens haven't allowed many rushing yards to QBs this year, but you're not going to do so against guys like Derek Carr, Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater. That changes this week, and I'd be very interested to see what odds I could get on Wentz outrushing Lamar Jackson in this one."

Marquise Brown Over 55.5 receiving yards (-115)

"Lamar Jackson showed no hesitancy going back to Brown last week after the receiver struggled with drops against the Lions, and the 92-yard effort Brown put up against the Broncos should do well for his confidence. He's reached at least 69 receiving yards in three of his four games and nearly got to this 55.5 total in this other game despite catching only three catches against Detroit (hold on to the ball and he's well past the number). Brown will likely cede looks to other receivers as the position group gets healthier for Baltimore over the next few weeks, but he's been the top option in the passing game to date, so I don't think they go away from him completely in any game. And with Brown averaging 17.2 yards per reception, he doesn't need many looks to get over this number in any given game."
