Dolphins vs Ravens Best Prop Bets
Tua Tagovailoa Passing yards: Over 230.5
Tua Tagovailoa went for 270 yards in his first game under new head coach Mike McDaniel. However, there was quite a bit of meat left on the bone. Tagovailoa typically has fewer passing yards against the Patriots, leaving some optimism for his statistical output.
The Ravens will also put up considerably more points than New England, and Miami will likely have to push the ball downfield more than they did on Sunday. Even if you take away the yards after the catch on Jaylen Waddle’s touchdown, Tagovailoa was right at 230 yards.
Tyreek Hill receiving yards: Over 70.5
Tyreek Hill was all over the field in his Miami Dolphins debut. While Hill and Tagovailoa were unable to connect on any big splash plays downfield, he still ended the day with 94 yards. Based on what this offense looked like in the preseason and in Week 1, it is reasonable to presume that Hill will have the opportunity to hit his over every week.
The volume will always be there, and his after-the-catch ability lends itself to stockpiling yards in chunks — even if there is a game where he doesn’t hit a home run. Tyreek Hill amassing at least 71 yards on Sunday is one of the safer bets of the weekend.
Lamar Jackson rush attempts: Over 7.5
The Ravens were severely frustrated by Miami’s defense in their matchup last season. It has become a point of conversation this week, with both sides bringing it up. In last year’s game, Jackson rushed nine times.
That number may have been higher with more designed runs if the Ravens had not been trailing for the entire second half. The weakness of Miami’s defense is their linebackers, and it would behoove Baltimore to attack them with designed Jackson runs.
