Lamar Jackson’s 2019 Season Was Historic, Even for the Oddsmakers

As the Ravens sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor as the number one seed in the American Football Conference for the next two weeks, there is already a lot of moments this season no one will soon forget no matter how far Baltimore ends up in the postseason.

While there were plenty of great moments as the team went 14-2, there was one player in particular that took the league by storm in 2019, that being second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson.

If you would have checked any delaware gambling sites in the months of July and August, not many were counting on Jackson to have the huge breakout season that he did, as he is the front-runner to be the league’s MVP that will be announced the night before the Super Bowl.

Just how much did Jackson defy the odds? Let’s look at some of the prop bets that were out during the summer and how Jackson (for the most part) blew through them.

Let’s start with the prop bet of “Total Passing yards in the 2019 Regular Season,” as the oddsmakers had Jackson’s over/under at 3000 yards.

So how did he do? Well he threw for 3127 yards, meaning that if you bet the over you walked away a winner in that bet.

Moving on Jackson’s bet of “Total TD Passes in the 2019 Regular Season” over/under was 17.5, and once again Jackson plowed through that.

Jackson playing in 15 games getting to take week 16 off with everything clinched still threw for 36 touchdowns, most in the AFC. Easy to see if you bet the over, you are taking home easy money.

A third prop bet was Jackson’s “Total Interceptions in the 2019 Regular Season,” with the over/under on that being set at 10.5.

He was careful with the football, and if you bet the under you would have won, as he threw just six picks, three of which came early in the season in an overtime win over the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Jackson’s “Total Rushing Yards in the 2019 Regular Season” was a fourth prop bet put out by the sportsbooks, with that number being at 775.

Not only did Jackson blast through that with 1206 yards, he led the team overall in rushing. The Baltimore run game was so good they are the first team in over 40 years to average over 200 yards rushing per game.

The final prop bet for Lamar was “Total Rushing TD’s in the 2019 Regular Season,” and the over/under on that was set at 5.5.

Again if you bet the over you were a winner, as Jackson crossed the goal line as a runner seven times in 2019.

So as you can see, it’s one of the most historic seasons in the history of the game at the QB spot.

But it’s not over yet, and Jackson and the Ravens still have plenty more to do now that the playoffs are ready to get rolling.

Who Will the Ravens Play in the AFC Divisional Playoff Game in Two Weeks?

The Ravens took care of business at home Sunday in a game that was for nothing more than pride, beating up their biggest AFC North rivals in the Steelers by a final of 28-10.

Now that the team got a chance to see what a number of their backups could do against the Steelers, the team will be off until January 11th when they play host to the lowest remaining seed in the AFC in a game that is slated to start at 8:15pm.

Who exactly will the Ravens match up against on the 11th? If you check out the odds on mejores casas de apuestas USA there’s a couple of teams that could come into M&T Bank Stadium for a divisional matchup, and today we run down the teams that could potentially be the Ravens opponent as they look to host the AFC Title Game the following week.

1. Tennessee Titans (9-7)

The Titans finally clinched a playoff spot in the final game of the season against the Houston Texans, running past them to clinch the final playoff spot.

Tennessee is an interesting matchup for any team, and they are going to have to get past the New England Patriots in Foxboro if they want to get to the divisional round.

The team is 7-3 in 10 games since Ryan Tannehill replaced Marcus Mariota in the starting lineup, and since that time they are the fourth highest scoring offense in the NFL.

They are on a roll, and it could be a good battle if they get past the Pats.

2. Buffalo Bills (10-6)

The Ravens already dispatched the Bills in Buffalo earlier this season, and if Buffalo gets past the Houston Texans in a wild card game on Saturday at 4:35pm, and the Pats defeat the Titans, the Bills will come to Baltimore for a second-round game.

Josh Allen is one of the more up and coming quarterbacks in the NFL, and his ability to escape the pocket and race for yards should remind Ravens fans of their own quarterback Lamar Jackson.

While their offense is middle of the road, the Bills defense could carry them to a win over the Texans. They are ranked No. 5 in defensive DVOA and No. 2 in points allowed, numbers that have to impress the Ravens.

3. Houston Texans (10-6)

Another team that the Ravens beat during the regular season, the Texans got a chance to rest most of their starters in the final week of the season, basically giving themselves a bye week to rest and get healthy.

The Texans made huge strides on their offensive line, which allowed Deshaun Watson to not take as many licks from defenders, which was a big reason the team won 10 games.

One big downfall for the Texans is their defense, which entering Sunday was ranked 22nd in the NFL, and allowed just over 270 yards per game. It could be a big day on offense for the Ravens if these two teams meet.

Ravens Sign Cornerback Marcus Peters to a Three-Year Extension Worth $42 Million

The Ravens have inked cornerback Marcus Peters to a three-year, $42 million contract extension according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The deal includes $32 million in guaranteed money and allows him to hit free agency as a 29-year-old. It is a win-win outcome for both parties.

There are only so many every-week No.1 cornerbacks in the NFL, and Peters certainly qualifies as one; Pro Football Focus has Peters as the No. 3 corner in the NFL this season between his stints with the Rams and the Ravens. The mid-season trade of Peters marked the complete turnaround for the Ravens defense.

Peters’ playmaking ability-he is one of the premier ballhawks in the league with five interceptions- has allowed the Ravens to blitz opposing quarterbacks at league-leading levels, which is another way this innovative team has created an advantage in the AFC.
