Baltimore Ravens to be AFC No. 1 Seed (+500)
The Ravens have made the postseason six times over the past decade. In two appearances, they represented the first and second seed overall in the AFC. The top seed occurred just two seasons ago in 2019-20, ending with a loss to Tennessee.
Prior to the upcoming season, Baltimore is a slight favorite (+115) to win the AFC North on DraftKings. They’ve gone 30-7 in the regular season over the last three seasons under the leadership of quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Cleveland and Pittsburgh both went to the postseason just a season ago, but it’s worth considering the value of this prop. Baltimore has been strong in the regular season with a powerful running attack and top-tier defense.
Lamar Jackson Over 950.5 Rushing Yards + JK Dobbins Over 1100.5 Rushing Yards (+275)
A lot of focus is going to be put on the running attack of the Ravens this season. Jackson started halfway through the 2018 regular season and hit over the 1,000-yard mark on the ground in consecutive seasons. J.K. Dobbins became the lead running back in the second half of the season. He should continue as the team’s leading back entering the 2021 season.
Initially, there would be concern over if there are enough offensive snaps for Jackson and Dobbins. Gus Edwards will also be a valuable backup and should receive a good portion of snaps as well. However, the Ravens are one of the leaders in rushing attempts by the team. Over the last three seasons, Baltimore has led the NFL in rushing attempts.
If you believe that Dobbins will take over as the dominant lead back for Baltimore, there’s a lot of great value on this prop. The strength of the division hasn’t stopped the Ravens from having success on the ground.
Justin Tucker to NOT miss a FG during the Regular Season (+2800)
Here is a fun prop: Can the Ravens’ established kicker not miss a field goal all season long? Over his nine seasons in the NFL, all with Baltimore, Tucker has attempted 29 or more field goal kicks. He has never gone through an entire season unscathed.
At best, Tucker missed one attempt in two seasons. Tucker went 38-for-39 in his most accurate season in 2016, which included making all 10 attempts beyond the 50-yard line. He tied for a season-low 29 field goal attempts in 2019 and made 28 of those. Last season, he went 26-for-29 with two of those misses beyond the 50-yard line.
While rare, eight different field goal kickers have completed an NFL season with perfect field goal accuracy (of 28 attempts or higher). Two players, Mason Crosby and Jason Myers, were able to accomplish this just last season. Considering Tucker’s reliability, it’s not crazy to consider.
DraftKings Props for Washington
|Washington Football Team Props||Yes||No|
|Chase Young over 11.5 sacks, William Jackson III over 2.5 interceptions, and Ryan Fitzpatrick over 2.5 rushing TDs||+2200|
|Ryan Fitzpatrick to break his own passing TD record (over 31.5)||+1200|
|Ryan Fitzpatrick to have over 3900.5 regular season passing yards and Washington to make the playoffs||+285|
|Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel over 1999.5 combined regular season receiving yards||+160||-200|
|Washington to be NFC No. 1 seed||+2000|
|Washington to reach NFC Championship Game||+800|
|Washington to score over 3.5 regular season defensive TDs||+125|
Ryan Fitzpatrick to have over 3900.5 regular-season passing yards AND Washington to make the playoffs (+285)
The Football Team is going with Fitzpatrick, a veteran journeyman quarterback in the NFL, to lead the way after instability at the position. He’s seen success in a variety of settings with memorable performances, but never long-term. His longest stint has been with Buffalo across four years. At 38 years old entering his 2021 campaign, it’s not likely he’ll surpass that mark in Washington.
Only one season has seen Fitzpatrick hit over 3,900 passing yards. That was back in 2015 when completing a 10-and-6 season as the New York Jets starter. Since then, he hasn’t completed a full season as the starter. He’s also started in seven or fewer games in three of the past five years.
Factoring in the age and recent mediocre results, the total passing yards seem a bit high. It is also hard to ensure the team will make the postseason as their losing record was enough to win the NFC East division last year.
Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel over 1999.5 combined regular-season receiving yards (Yes +160, No -200)
Washington has added numerous weapons to the offense, including Samuel, who has spent his first four seasons with the Carolina Panthers. Samuel is coming off his best season yet with 851 receiving yards. He displayed dual-threat potential with 200 rushing yards, which would not be considered for this prop.
In order for the prop to hit, bettors must hope for Fitzpatrick to connect well with the offense and for McLaurin to hit over 1,000 receiving yards. More offensive playmakers should open things up for the projected leading receiver. It also provides Samuel with some flexibility depending on how the Football Team uses him.
Washington to score over 3.5 regular-season defensive TDs (+125)
The last time Washington was able to get four or more defensive touchdowns was back in 2013. Four interceptions reached the end zone and one fumble return resulted in a touchdown. They had a strong defense overall last year limiting opponent yards and forcing 23 turnovers. That was negated by an average offense and a -4 turnover ratio.
It’s hard to recommend this prop through DraftKings even if the NFC East is near as bad as it was just a season ago. The defense will have their opportunities, but history says the unit won’t reach pay dirt this often.
