- The Baltimore Ravens are favored over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a highly-anticipated Thursday Night Football matchup.
- Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are the favorites for the spread (-1.5) and the moneyline (-120) with the Buccaneers coming off a frustrating loss to the Carolina Panthers.
- Tom Brady has struggled, and Lamar Jackson did not do much last week against the Cleveland Browns, but this should be a scoring duel on Thursday night.
The Ravens are 4-3 and the Buccaneers are 3-4, but both teams are on the top of their respective divisions for the time being. We review some of the best NFL player props for Week 7.
The Ravens travel south to face Tampa Bay, and we could see an even more motivated Tom Brady after the 45-year-old did not throw a single touchdown against the Panthers. Let’s examine some player and team props for Thursday night.
Ravens vs. Buccaneers Player and Team Props for Thursday Night Football
1: Buccaneers to score first and win: +200
The Buccaneers looked bad — really bad — against the Panthers a few days ago. No Christian McCaffrey, no Baker Mayfield, and an interim head coach stunned Tampa Bay in a 19-3 win.
However, Brady and the bunch should be upset at that performance and probably come out more motivated than they have been the entire season. They score a touchdown the first time they touch the ball, and Brady’s revenge tour finally begins at the end of October. At +200 odds, it’s not a bad bet to take a flier on.
2: Mark Andrews Over 65.5 receiving yards -114
This is one TNF prop bet not to be missed for Week 7. Last week’s Ravens game was weird. Lamar Jackson was held without a touchdown, and top tight end Mark Andrews had just two targets and was held without a catch. Now, keep in mind that Andrews was on the injury report all week heading into the matchup with the Cleveland Browns, so it shouldn’t be too surprising.
But, Andrews should return with a vengeance and lead the Ravens in receiving yards against Tampa Bay. Andrews should crush his 65.5 receiving yard prop, and while the odds are just -114, this is one of the easiest bets of the entire weekend.
It is worth noting that Andrews has yet to practice this week, although the Pro Bowl TE doesn’t sound too concerned about his status for Thursday.
3: Gus Edwards anytime TD scorer +170
D’Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard combined to rush for 181 yards and a score against Tampa Bay last weekend. On the Ravens side of things, Gus Edwards made his 2022 debut and stunned everybody by rushing for 66 yards and two scores on a team-high 16 carries.
With JK Dobbins hurt, Edwards is the clear lead back and the favorite to get goal-line touches. After hitting paydirt twice last week, the chances are good that Edwards scores once again, and at +170, the Edwards TD prop bet is a beautiful investment.
4: Tom Brady anytime TD scorer +1300
Why is Tom Brady’s TD prop so low?
No idea. Well, maybe it’s the fact that he was held without a TD to a bad Carolina team. The week prior, Brady had just one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and even that came late in the fourth quarter.
Brady’s age is finally showing as Father Time nips at his heels. However, this is simply too low to pass up at +1300. The chances of Brady being held without a touchdown AGAIN are highly unlikely, and it didn’t help that Mike Evans dropped a wide-open pass that likely would’ve resulted in a score.
A $10 bet on this Brady prop will cash you $130. That’s a nice day at the office.
