For Week 13’s early slate on Sunday afternoon, I have an under that you’ll probably be excited to bet and an over that the numbers show no-brainer value on betting.
Check out the Russell Wilson and Olamide Zaccheaus picks for Sunday below.
Under 222.5 Passing Yards (BetMGM)
You might be thinking, “Well, Matt, I expect the Broncos to be playing from behind against a Ravens team that generally thrives in the first half. That means they’ll have to throw the ball a lot in the second half.” Well, last week, Wilson threw for only 142 yards against the Panthers in a game that Denver lost by 13.
The projection on this presents a clear edge, as well. Wilson is projected for just 193.5 passing yards by Action Labs.
Over 2.5 Receptions (+130, BetMGM)
Without Kyle Pitts, it would make sense for Zaccheaus to take on a larger role in the Falcons‘ offense. Don’t expect Parker Hesse or MyCole Pruitt to step into the role as starting tight end and suddenly produce when Pitts couldn’t.
Zaccheaus has gone over this line just four times this season, but he has played at least 70% of snaps in each of the last five weeks. Last week against the Commanders, he had five catches on eight targets for 91 yards.
Pittsburgh’s defense ranks 16th against the pass and eighth against the run. I don’t expect a Marcus Mariota-led offense to suddenly shift to a pass-heavy approach, but an aerial attack may be the way to go against the Steelers.
