Week 9 MNF Player Props: Lamar, Dalton, Likely, Olave

  • Lamar Jackson’s total passing TDs is set at 1.5 with +100 odds on the over.
  • Isaiah Likely has -130 odds to go over 45.5 receiving yards.

NEW ORLEANS – Week 9 of the NFL season is coming to an end with a Monday Night Football matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints in New Orleans where the Ravens are a -1.5-point favorite.

While NFL betting sites are expecting this matchup to be too close to call, there are plenty of player props for you to choose from both on the passing and receiving end.

Monday Night Football QB Props

Lamar Jackson Total Passing TDs

  • Over 1.5 +100
  • Under 1.5 -130

While Ravens oddsmakers are heavily in favor of Lamar Jackson staying under 1.5 touchdowns, there is some tremendous value in betting on his odds to go over despite missing two of his top receiving options. First off, aside from Mark Andrews who is missing the game, one of Jackson’s favorite redzone targets this season has been Devin Duvernay who slides into the WR1 slot without Andrews or Rashod Bateman. Duvernay has demanded 22% of redzone targets this season and has been on the receiving end of 3 of Lamar’s 15 touchdowns thus far.

Jackson has gone an even 4-4 with over 1.5 passing touchdowns this season and in this matchup with the Saints, he could go over for a fifth time for several reasons. One is that the Saints secondary will be without their top cornerback in Marshon Lattimore which leaves plenty more opportunities for Jackson to sling one deep for a score. The Saints have also given up 3+ passing touchdowns in two of their last four games.

Andy Dalton Total Passing Yards

  • Over 232.5 -108
  • Under 232.5 -121

Andy Dalton is also stepping into this matchup with value on the over for his Saints player odds. While many argue that the receiving core is depleted for the Saints, Dalton has been playing with this receiving core since taking over as QB1 and has gone over 232.5 twice in five games. Dalton now gets a date with one of the worst secondaries in the NFL in the Ravens who are letting up 266.8 passing yards per game and have allowed two straight opposing QBs to go over as well.

Something else to point out is that with the Ravens slightly favored in this one, the Saints could be playing from behind according to oddsmakers meaning a positive passing game script to stay in the game.

Monday Night Football Receiving Props

Isaiah Likely Receiving Yard Total

  • Over 45.5 -114
  • Under 45.5 -114

All eyes are going to be on rookie tight end, Isaiah Likely in this matchup as the Ravens receiving core is missing core players due to injury as mentioned before. In a similar role last week, Likely drew in seven targets, had six receptions, and went for 77 receiving yards. It is no secret that Lamar Jackson loves his tight ends as Mark Andrews leads the team in targets (64), receptions (42), rec. yards (488), and touchdowns (5).

In Likely’s Week 8 start, he led the team in each of those categories proving that Lamar will always look to his starting TE no matter the situation. That said, the over on his receiving total should be the hardest slam made of all Week 9 MNF player props on Bovada.

Chris Olave Odds To Score A TD

  • Yes +140

Chris Olave is officially the Saints WR1 going forward with the news of Michael Thomas going on IR and missing the remainder of the season. That said, he has become Andy Dalton's favorite target leading the team in overall targets, receptions, and yards, and also leads all receivers in redzone targets as well. It is also worth noting that both of his touchdowns this season have come from redzone passes.

The Ravens also have one of the worst redzone defenses in the league letting their opponents score on 61.3% of their redzone trips this season and have let up 10 passing touchdowns in the redzone this season as well.

Isaiah Likely To Have 45 Receiving Yards, 1+ TD?
