Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Baltimore Ravens Player Prop Pick
Rashod Bateman 75+ Receiving Yards +310. Bet $100 to collect $410. DraftKings has the best odds, click here to bet
First off, let's give a little shine to DraftKings for coming correct on their wide receiver alt lines. By my count, there are alt lines for five different guys in the receiving yards market. That's just beautiful. On top of that, the prices are pretty good. For instance, FanDuel has 70+ (+265) for Bateman. For just five little, measly more yards, we can get +310 at DraftKings. That's called living the dream people.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Baltimore Ravens Prediction
Obviously, the haters are going to say this isn't possible. They think everything is impossible. That mentality is literally what makes them haters. But here's the thing. This is totally possible. We've already seen this kid go 100+ once this season. And here's the thing about that game, Mark Andrews was around. In fact, Andrews went for 100+ yards that day too. It was a full-on party.
Tonight, the Ravens might be without the services of Andrews as he is listed as questionable and has not practiced all week. Technically Bateman is questionable too which isn't great but he did some limited stuff this week. Andrews is the wild card though because if he doesn't play, things could get wild. We want wild since we are laying down a +310 move here. Even if he does play, remember they both went HAM in the same game once already this season so it might not even matter because of Tampa's secondary.
Tonight the Buccaneers will be missing three or four guys in their secondary which helps us a little. My guess is they will still try the "make Lamar beat you with his arm" defensive strategy even though they are down guys on the back end. Will they be able to pull it off? Who knows? They haven't really stopped the run all season although they are middle of the pack in terms of opponent yards per attempt. At the end of the day, we could get home on how the Bucs decided to play defense or even a good old game script. At +310, I'm taking a shot.
