NFL Sunday Wild Card picks and prop bets from Mims: Ravens vs Titans, Bears vs Saints, and Browns vs Steelers
The first Sunday NFL Wild Card game, the Baltimore Ravens vs the Tennessee Titans, kicks off at 1:05 pm
My Wild Card selections continue. My prop bets for yesterday were hot but my selections for the games were not. Time to get back on track today.
RAVENS VS TITANS
The Ravens are favored by 3.0 over the Titans. The total is 51.5. Baltimore has won 5 in a row. The Titans won 3 of their last 4 regular season games and won the AFC South. The Ravens lost to the Titans during week number 11 by a score of 30 - 24.
Derrick Henry over 120.5 yards. The price is -112 either way. The 1st game, He ran for 133 yards. More of the same. Take him over.
Lamar Jackson passing yardage is set at 199. The under is set at -106. Jackson will rely more on his legs so go under.
J.K. Dobbins rushing yards is set at 61.5. He has gone over that total in 6 of his last seven games. The price is high at -143 but lay it.
The road team in the postseason matchup between the Ravens and Titans is 4-0. Baltimore is the road team. The Ravens were eliminated last year by the Titans. This year they get revenge. Game goes over!
BEARS VS SAINTS
The Saints play the Bears in the middle game of the tripleheader. The Saints are favored by 10 with a total of 47.5. New Orleans has Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas activated for this game. The Saints are 12th in offense and 4th in defense. The Bears have played very well done the stretch. They won 3 of their last 4. Chicago lost to the Saints earlier this year 26-23 in OT.
Drew Brees over 23.5 completions. The price is +102. In the first meeting, Brees completed 31 passes. He easily gets the over.
Alvin Kamara rushing and receiving yardage combined is projected at 104.5. The price is -112 and the play is over.
The Saints will win the game! I am not crazy about laying the 10 so this is a money line for me. Money Line is -550. I would use it in a parlay if the price is too steep. The game goes over.
BROWNS VS STEELERS
The Steelers play the Browns for the third time this season. They split the two games. Cleveland is entering this game without their head coach, Kevin Stefanski since he was diagnosed with COVID 19. This limited the Browns from practicing this week. Cleveland was only able to perform a walk through before flying to Pittsburgh.
The Steelers are favored by 6.0. The total is 47.5. Money line is -280 for Steelers and + 240 for Cleveland.
Nick Chubb rushing yards at 66.5. The price is 115. 6 of his last 8 games have exceeded that projection. He goes over.
The Steelers have not shown the ability to run the ball. They rely exclusively on the passing of Ben Roethlisberger. The Browns have a better balance and work the play action pass well. Cleveland is getting 6 in a game that I think will resemble the Colts and Bills game which was decided by 3 points. I will split my action with the points and the money line.
