We have to start by talking about injuries for Baltimore because they will play a big part in this game. As of Sunday morning, it looks increasingly like Mark Andrews and Gus Edwards will both miss this showdown against the Saints. Considering the Ravens’ wide receiver Rashod Bateman is already out for the seasonAndrews’ absence is a big hit for this passing game.
Coming to this game, crows 26. Huhth The league in passing offense with only 193.8 yards per game through the air, so the defeat of Andrews and Bateman would make this passing offense even more anemic. However, Baltimore are second in running offense with 165.6 yards per game, which has helped them move up to fifth in the league in scoring offense with 26 points per contest.
Lamar Jackson is just 148-235 in the season for 1635 yards with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions; Still, he has been his dynamic self on the field, leading the team with 75 carries for 553 yards and two points. His 9.1 rushing yards per game is the best among quarterbacks and the 15th highest among all players.
Without Gus Edwards, Baltimore would likely split the carry between Kenyan Drake (49 carries, 251 yards, TD), Justice Hill (28 carries, 179 yards).
That might be enough to go against just a Saints defense, even with the Raiders dominated last week, ranked 28.th In the league in defense scoring by averaging 25 points in a game.
However, Baltimore’s defense has its own problems, especially through the air, allowing 266.8 passing yards per game, which places them 28th in the NFL. Although opponents have had just 12 passing touchdowns through the air in eight games.
Even without Michael Thomas, which is probably also done for the weatherSaint 8. Huhth In passing offense with 253.1 yards per game in the NFL. Andy Dalton, who took the starting job from Jameis Winston, is 161 for 1,175 yards with nine touchdowns and four interceptions.
His favorite target is rookie Chris Olev, who leads the team with 37 catches for 547 yards and two scores in the season. However, the Saints have a relatively balanced passing attack, including Alvin Kamara (33 grabs, 287 yards, two TDs), Tre’Kwan Smith (14 catches, 235 yards, TD), and Juwan Johnson (21 receptions, 216 yards). Huh. two TD). Plus the possible return of Jarvis Landry on Monday night.
To add to this, Saint 8. Huhth In a hurry with 141.3 yards per game. He is led by Kamara, who has 95 carries for 413 yards and a touchdown.
Despite their struggle through the air, there are some positive signs for this Baltimore defense. For starters, they are fifth in the NFL with 23 sacks. He also traded linebacker Rokwan Smith and active rookie second rounder David Ozabo for Tyes Bowser from the PUP list, so he is recuperating at the right time.
If they can stop their fourth-quarter slump, the Ravens could remain one of the top teams in the league. He has been dismissed 83-35 in the final quarter so far. All the Dolphins, Bills and Giants rallied to win over the Ravens in their only three losses of the season. Can the Saints make it the fourth?
Devin DuVernay over 43.5 receiving yards
Say hello to Baltimore’s number-one receiver and top passing choice on Monday night. DuVernay may not be an elite talent, but it’s a total that’s less so. He averages 39.1 yards a game and is Andrews healthy and Bateman (sometimes) healthy. He’s hit this prop in 75% of his games, so I think he can do it again on Monday.

Lamar Jackson interception over 0.5
Lamar Jackson is coming off the tough month of October, which has seen him being a little careless with the ball at times. Given the fact that he has limited passing options, I think there’s a good chance he forces some passes that he shouldn’t or shouldn’t be on the same page with his receiver multiple times in the game. I think a pick here is a good bet.

Alvin Kamara Over 36.5 Receiving Yards
We covered above that you can beat Baltimore with the air and Kamara is a big part of this passing attack. The Ravens also get good pressure, which could lead to more dump-offs from Dalton and a solid receiving game from Kamara.
