Best Prop Bets Monday NT week 5 2021
It was a positive Sunday for the best bets at 13-10. I said in my Sunday article that there was only one way to go, and that was up. We've got an interesting Monday Night Football matchup between the Ravens and Colts. Both teams have issues which should make it a little easier to find the props to ride. My season total is 58-69, yep still in the negative but we've got a long way to go.
If you've got questions heading into tonight's game hit me up @Drew_Phelps83 on twitter.
Marquise Brown OVER 21.5 Yards Longest Reception -120 (1 Unit)
Marquise Brown is a home run threat and finally the Ravens are using him that way. Very similar to why I loved Henry Ruggs this weekend and he hit once again. Brown has been over this number in all 4 of the Ravens games this season with his lowest being 29 in Week 1. You don't see him running short over the middle routes anymore.
Mo Alie-Cox OVER 1.5 Receptions -145 (1 Unit)
Coming into this season I really loved him as an option for Carson Wentz but it just did not happen. I think they had to find their groove and over the last three weeks, it has gotten better and better. He's going 1-2-3 in his last three games with catches. He had 42 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Colts last game against the Dolphins. This connection could be really fruitful the remainder of the season.
Carson Wentz OVER 9.5 Rushing Yards -115 (1 Unit)
I know he has been under this number the last two games but he's been battling two sprained ankles. I think this is the week that he gets back into the running game. He's not a guy who is going to run a lot but 3-5 times a game is completely within reach. He just has to get 10 yards and with the pressure that the Ravens bring, he'll have to scramble out of the pocket a lot tonight. This should not even be a sweat tonight.
Jonathan Taylor OVER 13.5 Rush Attempts -115 (1 Unit)
The Ravens are one of the better teams in the league against the run but the Colts have to establish the run to get their offense moving. They will need to give Taylor at least 15 carries to keep Baltimore honest. He has been over this number in three of the four games this season. If this number was 15.5 I'd stay away but only being 13 is a blessing.
Lamar Jackson & Jonathan Taylor COMBINE for OVER 1.5 Rushing TDs +125 (1 Unit)
This is a "Weekly Special" from DraftKings. My eyes lit up when I saw it. I mean it is plus odds for a reason but I'll take that shot that these two find the end zone. Taylor found the end zone for the first time in Week 4 against the Dolphins and Lamar has two on the season. I don't see why you wouldn't take the shot with the plus odds.
