NFL MNF: Mims picks Baltimore Ravens at Las Vegas Raiders – Lamar Jackson, TD and turnover prop bets
The NFL Monday Night Football Game has the Baltimore Ravens playing the Las Vegas Raiders. The numbers are Ravens – 4.0 and total 50.5. The money line is Baltimore -210 and Las Vegas +175. Vegas is the home team. The two teams have met each other 12 times including post season with the Ravens winning 9 games. The last time they played was 11/25/18 with the Ravens winning 34-17.
The Ravens used the off season to upgrade their passing offense. They were ranked last in yards per game and attempts. The rushing attack is led by QB and former league MVP Lamar Jackson. The Raiders are coming off an 8-8 season with a defense that gave up the 3rd most points in the NFL. QB Derek Carr is coming off his 3rd consecutive 4,000-yard season.
Prop Bets: Total Match Touchdowns is set at 5.5. Over is set at -120 while the price of the under is +110. I am leaning over.
Lamar Jackson passing over 1.5 TDs. His price is +110. I am going over. Total Game Turnovers.is set at 2.5. The Ravens will create 2 turnovers and give one away themselves. Take the over at + 110.
Coaching Match Up: John Harbaugh gets the slight edge over Jon Gruden.
Two devastating injuries to Marcus Peters and Gus Edwards at the conclusion of training camp have the Ravens going next man up early. Jackson continues to be superman and ignites the offense with his run first and pass second style of play. He will pass more this game because of Raider’s defense. I am going Ravens money line and taking game goes over.
