Lamar Jackson - NFL Tips

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) are coming off a humiliating defeat and looking to get their season back on track against the Baltimore Ravens (4-3).

Best Bet

Baltimore +1

This game should be won in the trenches at that will give Baltimore an advantage on Thursday Night Football.

Tampa has been dreadfully disappointing this season, and while Tom Brady’s play has been the subject of scrutiny, their major problem is poor offensive line play.

The Bucs are averaging a paltry 3.0 yards per carry this season, meaning that the offence is relying solely on Brady to carry the load. This is very hard for him to do when his line cannot stand up in pass coverage.

The GOAT has attempted 40 or more passes in his last five games, of which the Buccaneers have lost four.

The bad news for the Bucs is that the Ravens defensive front has been playing well of late. They sacked Jacoby Brissett five times last Saturday, and did a good job to keep the Browns league leading rushing attack to 113 yards on 24 carries.

Baltimore’s offence has been consistently productive this season, putting up at least 19 points in every game. Lamar Jackson is playing at a very high level and they have rushed for more than 150 yards in their last six games.

While the Bucs have a reputation as a strong run defence, they have only been average this year giving up 4.4 yards per carry.

Expect the Ravens offence to do what they need to do and come away with the win.

Same Game Multi

Baltimore +1, Gus Edwards Over 45.5 Rushing Yards, Leonard Fournette Under 80.5 Rushing & Receiving Yards, Lamar Jackson Under 29.5 Pass Attempts

Expecting the Ravens to lean on their running game so Gus Edwards number looks achievable. The Bucs run game has been more effective with Rachaad White so wouldn’t be surprised to see his usage pick up at the expect of Leonard Fournette.

Value Bet

75+ Rushing Yards
Gus Edwards

Gus the Bus has popped up on the injury report but assuming he does play he looks great value to go over the 75 yard line here. Edwards averaged more than 5 yards per carry in each of his first three seasons and should be RB1 for Baltimore going forward.
