Jalen Hurts Under 215.5 (Pass YDS) -112
In what to me seems like a head scratching move, the Eagles have benched quarterback Carson Wentz in favor of the rookie Jalen Hurts. While I agree Wentz was performing poorly, you would think that after paying the man 128 million you would pull out all the stops to ensure his success, but I digress. While playing against a Saints defense that currently ranks second in the league would be a tough task for anyone, it is even more so for a rookie quarterback getting his first start. Right now the Saints are pressuring quarterbacks at a rate of 34% per drop back, the second highest in the league. Given these factors, I love the under in this matchup with Jalen Hurts throwing for under his passing total.
Kirk Cousins Over 274.5 (Pass YDS) -112
In each of his last four outings Cousins has been able to smash his over on passing yards, and I see no signs of this trend slowing down! While Tampa Bay has been able to play well on defense against the run, defending the pass is another story, currently ranking 22nd in pass defense. In what should be a game where the Vikings find themselves playing from behind, expect a heavy dose of a lethal passing offense that boasts weapons like Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielan.
Ceedee Lamb Over 3.5 (Rec YDS) -160
While the Cowboys have been struggling since the injury of Dak Prescott, Ceedee Lamb’s consistent performance is something they can hang their hat on. Excluding the Cowboy’s meltdown in week 7 against the Washington Football Team, Lamb has posted at least 4 catches in EVERY game this season. With the juice of Dalton returning to Cincinnati, against a sub par defense, his favorite target should be on track for another HUGE day catching the ball.
Corey Davis Over 64.5 -118 (Rec YDS) -118
Davis has been on a tear the latter half of the season, proving to be a true number 2 receiver in Tennessee, behind AJ Brown. The most exciting thing about his hot streak is that it has been against two good defenses in the Ravens and the Colts (twice). I see this hot streak continuing to roll against an extremely average Jacksonville defense. Also something to note is that recently Davis was asked about the significance of reaching 1,000 yards receiving, and how much it would mean to him.
Hunter Henry Over 3.5 (REC) -120
This year Henry has played awfully consistent, averaging a little over 4 catches per game. However last week was a whole other story for the struggling Chargers, who were relegated to zero points in a blowout loss to the patriots. In that game, Henry had his poorest performance of the season, only netting one catch for 5 yards. This week I see a resurgence by the entire Chargers offense against an awful Falcons secondary that is allowing one of highest passing averages per game. This game should be a shoot out, and in that case I see Henry easily going over 3.5 receptions.
