Ravens and Buccaneers Player Prop Odds and Best Bets for Thursday Night Football

Tom Brady, Leonard Fournette, and Mike Evans look to get back on track when they host the Ravens in Week 8.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) host the Baltimore Ravens (4-3) on "Thursday Night Football" to get things started in Week 8.

Tampa Bay (+1) are home dogs looking to right the ship in prime time and the game total is set at 45.5.

If you’re looking to get in on the action, here are a few player props worth targeting in Thursday’s matchup.

Ravens vs. Buccaneers Prop Bets

Tom Brady under 281.5 passing yards (-115)

Brady has had an issue scoring, but he hasn’t had a big issue getting the ball in the air. Brady is averaging 266 passing yards per game while the Ravens are allowing 261.3 passing yards per game. Still, that falls just short of this prop and Brady doesn’t look quite right. A year ago I would have smashed the over, but this game total isn’t high enough to get me excited about a shootout. Let’s grab the under.

Leonard Fournette over 28.5 receiving yards (-120)

Let’s throw last Sunday out the window. In each of the four games previous to the matchup with the Panthers, Fournette exceeded this prop easily and he was averaging more than seven targets per game. The Ravens have surrendered the third-most catches and the seventh-most receiving yards to opposing RBs this season, so Lenny should be back on track Thursday.

Mike Evans over 68.5 receiving yards (-120)

Across the past two weeks, Evans has a 36.9 percent air yards share for the Bucs and he’s averaging 75.7 receiving yards per game on the season. Evans is the deep threat as compared to Chris Godwin, with Evans averaging 13.8 yards per reception. Godwin has more targets, but Evans has the exact same amount of yards (138) across the past two contests. The receiving yards prop is lower for Evans, so let’s take it. The Ravens are allowing 191.5 yards per game to opposing wideouts. Evans should be able to log 69.

Gus Edwards anytime TD (+130)

In only one game played this season, Edwards’ two rushing touchdowns are tied for the most on the team with Lamar Jackson. It’s a committee in Baltimore, but they don’t call Gus, “the Bus” for no reason. Edwards will get the goal-line carries vs. a Tampa Bay run defense that was just shredded by the likes of D’onta Foreman and Chubba Hubbard.
