New Orleans Saints Under 23.5 Points Scored
The Ravens have experienced their fair share of ups and downs to start the season, especially on the defensive side of the ball, highlighted by Jon Harbaugh’s squad allowing just 18.8 PPG on 361 YPG in their five victories, opposed to surrendering 29.7 PPG on 370 YPG across their three losses.
I’ll back the Saints to score 23 PTS or less here, as their offense has played surprisingly well since Andy Dalton took over back in Week 4, highlighted by New Orleans scoring 24+ PTS in five straight games heading into Monday (29.6 PPG). However, I think we’ll see that run come to an end against a Ravens defense that’s finally starting to heat up, having allowed just 21.2 PPG across their last five contests.
Kenyan Drake (BAL) Anytime TD Scorer
Ideally, the Ravens would like to handle their backfield by committee with a rotation between J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Kenyan Drake, and occasionally Justice Hill. However, Baltimore’s RB room will be a bit shorthanded with Dobbins still on IR and Edwards now listed as doubtful.
So, the bulk of Baltimore’s backfield duties should ultimately fall to Drake in Monday night’s contest, which might not be such a bad thing, considering he’s averaged 5.12 YPC and punched in three touchdowns in very limited usage this season, with all three of those TD’s coming within the last three weeks (49 CAR, 7 REC).
Sure, you always have to worry about Lamar Jackson poaching goal line touches from Ravens’ running backs, but there should be plenty of scoring opportunities to go around against a New Orleans defense that’s surrendered 28+ PTS in four of their last five games (26.4 PPG).
Alvin Kamara (NO) Over 29.5 Receiving Yards
Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara stumbled out to a surprisingly slow start in the passing department this season, as Kamara participated in just two of New Orleans’ first four contests, and in the two games he participated in, he averaged just 9.5 receiving yards 2.5 receptions per game.
However, he’s stepped up in a big way since Jameis Winston’s injury, as Kamara has now hauled in 6+ passes for 56+ yards in three of his last four outings, with his lowest receiving output during that span coming in at six receptions for 25 yards against Cincinnati.
I’ll back Kamara to keep it going in the pass-catching department here, as the Saints enter Week 9 having scored 24+ PTS in five straight contests. So, I don’t see any reason to diverge from what’s been working offensively.
