Lamar Jackson’s Overs Could Hit Against Weakened Steelers D

  • Lamar Jackson has an O/U of 231.5 passing yards against a depleted Pittsburgh Steelers defense.
  • The Steelers could be missing as many as five key defensive players on Sunday.
  • Jackson has -114 odds to rush for more than 69.5 yards in the game.

BALTIMORE - Lamar Jackson is coming off of one of the worst games he’s ever played - he threw four interceptions and passed for only 165 yards against the Cleveland Browns.

His Baltimore Ravens managed to win, however, despite this being their second game in a row scoring 16 or less points.

Jackson faces off against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a talented but banged-up defense, and could return to form if their injury woes keep their best players off of the field.

Lamar Jackson Passing Yards O/U

  • Over 231.5 -114
  • Under 231.5 -114

Jackson has passed for more than 231.5 yards in eight of his ten games played this season, although he did miss that mark last week. Part of the reason why his O/U line is so low is likely to do with the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has held opposing teams to 234.5 pass yards per game, 12th in the NFL.

However, the Steelers will be missing DE Isaiah Buggs and CB Joe Haden - designated Out on Friday - as well as potentially without DE Isaiahh Loudermilk and DT Cameron Heyward, who are out with illnesses.

Steelers star T.J. Watt was also not likely to play but it appears the DPOY candidate won't leave them too woefully shorthanded against Lamar.

Lamar Jackson Rushing Yards O/U

  • Over 69.5 -114
  • Under 69.5 -114

By now, NFL betting fans will be familiar with how Jackson operates on the ground - with impunity. Still, he’s only gone over 69.5 rushing yards four times this season in his 10 games played - against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Minnesota Vikings.

Pittsburgh’s defense has been vulnerable to the run this season, giving up 133.1 rushing yards per game, fifth-most in the NFL.

Lamar could make up a good chunk of yardage against this defense, especially with the potential for so many interior presences to be missing in the game.

The Baltimore Ravens take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at 4:25 p.m. EST on Sunday. The game will be broadcast on CBS and NFL Network.
