Thursday Night Football Prop Bets

Here are three of the best prop bets for the Ravens vs Buccaneers matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Ravens vs Buccaneers TNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Tom Brady - Passing Yards: Over 277.5 (-110)

While the Bucs have struggled to win games lately, Tom Brady has had no issue throwing the football. The three-time NFL MVP is averaging a monster 317.3 passing yards over his last four games, hitting at least 278 in three of those matchups. The opportunity is golden for Brady's hot streak to continue as the Ravens have given up the seventh-most passing yards this season. Even with Baltimore having a solid pass rush, a potential shootout here means the Buccaneers could throw the ball a lot. With Father Time still finding it hard to catch up to TB12, I see Brady hitting the over on this prop once again on Thursday.

2. Lamar Jackson - Rushing Yards: Over 62.5 (-110)

Lamar Jackson enters Week 8 with the fifth-most rushing yards in the NFL (510), regardless of position. Though Tampa Bay's run defense is solid, it's giving up 5.7 rushing yards per carry to opposing quarterbacks. Jackson already averages an NFL-best 7.7 rushing yards on 9.4 carries, so the volume is certainly there for him to hit the over. He's also finished with 63-plus yards on the ground in four of his last six games, finishing with 58-plus in the other two. With pass-catchers Rashod Bateman and Mark Andrews not being at 100% due to injury (and potentially not playing), Jackson could be forced to run the ball more, opening up the door for him to finish with the over.

3. Mike Evans - Any Time Touchdown (+115)

Since the start of the 2020 NFL season, only Davante Adams (34) has more than Mike Evans' 30 receiving touchdowns. He's already found the end zone three times this season and nearly did it for a fourth time last week had it not been for a dropped pass. Fortunately, Evans is a great candidate to find paydirt on Thursday to make up for last week's gaffe. Not only does he already have one TD in two all-time meetings with the Ravens, but Baltimore has also given up the ninth-most TDs (7) to wideouts this season. Evans has also seen eight-plus targets in three of the last four weeks, including 15 in Week 7. With a lot of points potentially being on the board tonight, don't be surprised if six come from an Evans touchdown.
