Lamar Jackson passing TDs: Over 1.5 -110
The passing touchdowns for Jackson have been consistent this season, as he’s thrown exactly one in every game. However, the Colts have allowed multiple passing touchdowns to every quarterback they’ve faced so far, and have also allowed the highest touchdown percentage in the league (91.67 per cent).
We have seen the Colts get beaten in the red zone and on big plays. With the Ravens’ offense playing well and being effective with their deep shots, this should be the first game Jackson throws multiple touchdowns this season.
Mo Alie-Cox receiving yards: Over 17.5 -110
Yes, the Ravens have faced some of the league’s best tight ends this season. However, they have also shown they can get beat by them, surrendering the second-most yards to the position entering the week.
Alie-Cox played more and more snaps in the past three weeks. He has gone over this prop in two of his last three games, including a 42-yard performance last week. With the Colts expected to be trailing, the tight end should continue seeing targets.
Jonathan Taylor rushing yards: Over 56.5 -115
As the season continues, Jonathan Taylor has gotten better and better. His yards per carry has risen every single week, with him averaging over six yards per carry in back-to-back weeks. Taylor is coming off a 103-yard rushing week, while the Ravens are coming off a game in which they allowed both Broncos running backs to average over six yards per carry. It should be another healthy workload for Taylor tonight.
Latavius Murray anytime TD +120
Last week, the Ravens made Ty’Son Williams, their early-season lead back, a healthy scratch, and instead made the veteran Murray the bell cow. Not only that, Murray carried the ball three times in the red zone, while nobody else saw a single carry, including Lamar Jackson. The result was a touchdown for the former New Orleans Saint.
With Murray seeming to be the trusted running back in the red zone, he has a high probability to find the end zone yet again.
