Week 8 was great. I told everyone to stick with me and give it another week before betting against me and it paid off. It’s also always darkest before dawn. After a few bad weeks, it’s time to go on a run with good weeks. While we’ve started having some success when we took the risk on Under props, looking back at last week, one of the few props that we missed was an Under. However, it gave us good momentum by picking Under props, so Unders will be on the slate again this week. You know the drill, five props coming down the pike.

Austin Ekeler 94.5 Total Rush Yards + Rec. Yards
Take the OVER on this one. Ekeler is coming off 124 total yards in a loss. He has had more than 95 total yards in five of his seven games this year. Those are pretty good odds. Now the Chargers travel to Philadelphia this week as 2-point favorites in a healthy 50 point over/under. The Eagles are 24th in the league in defending the run. Ekeler has had at least five targets in every game since Week 1. That’s a good combo to hit the over here. Ryan Weisse agrees. Ryan projects 119 total yards this weekend for Ekeler. The over is worth 100 points here.
Joe Burrow 0.5 Total INTs
Take the OVER here as well. Joe Burrow has had an outstanding season so far this year. Burrow has a 16-game pace of 40 total touchdowns. However, he has been throwing a lot of interceptions as well. Burrow is on pace for more than 18 interceptions this year. Burrow has also thrown for at least one interception in six of eight games. Those are good odds for the over. Ryan has him projected for one interception. 75 points for the over here so one can tell it’s the betting favorite.
Lamar Jackson 305.5 Pass Yards + Rushing Yards
The final OVER of the day here. Lamar Jackson is having a great season. He has had at least 306 total yards in six of his seven games so far. Ryan has him projected for 341 total yards this weekend against the Vikings. The Vikings defense is below average in most categories and this game’s over/under is a healthy 50.5. There should be a healthy number of points scored in this one and if the Ravens are scoring a lot of points, chances are Lamar will easily hit the over here. The over is worth 95 points.
Dalvin Cook 92.5 Rushing Yards
Take the UNDER here. Dalvin Cook has failed to reach this mark in three of the five games he has played so far this year. Two of those three games that he has failed to hit 93 rushing yards have come in losses. The Vikings are 6-point underdogs in this game. It’s fair to assume they might be playing catch-up all game against a tough Ravens defense (4th against the Run). Ryan and I disagree with this one as Ryan has 101 projected rushing yards for Cook. However, with the total points for the under sitting at 90 points, it’s the favorite.
Stefon Diggs 8.5 Total Receptions
Let’s finish with an UNDER. 8.5 receptions is a lofty line. Diggs has only had more than eight receptions twice this season. Josh Allen has been getting everyone involved in that offense. A game against the Jaguars could get out of hand by the 3rd quarter so it’s possible that you would need Diggs to hit the over in only a half. The Bills are 14.5-point favorites. The second half may not matter much. Ryan is only projecting six receptions. Take the under here with confidence. It’s worth 85 points.
445 points up for grabs in these five props.
