Rhamondre Stevenson Over 12.5 Rec Yards (-110)
Stevenson is coming off a monster Week 10 performance in which he rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns while also chipping in four catches for 14 yards receiving.
With Damien Harris expected to return, I expect Stevenson to split work with Harris on early downs. However, with Brandon Bolden questionable, I could see Stevenson playing a bigger role in the passing game tonight — even if Bolden suits up. The rookie has flashed as a pass-catcher when given opportunities, and tonight would be a great time to give him more chances with Bolden dealing with a hip injury.
As of writing, I’m projecting Stevenson to see 30-35% routes run tonight (even if Bolden is active). Stevenson has seen an eye-popping 35% target share when running a route this season — it’s an unsustainable rate, but it goes to show that we can typically bank on him seeing targets when he’s in on a passing play.
Even if Bolden is active, I’m projecting a 58% chance of Stevenson going over this number. (I would set the line for this prop closer to 16.5 yards, for context.) If Bolden is ruled out, I would give Stevenson closer to a 70-75% chance of hitting this over.
If you’re reading this before inactives are released, I would bet this over up to 15.5 yards because there’s a 10-20% chance Bolden is ruled out. But even if you’re reading this after inactives are released and Bolden is set to play, he could be at less than 100%, which would be added value to this over and I would still bet it up to 13.5 yards in that case.
But remember: Every yard in this short of a range counts — a lot — so be sure to shop for the best number.
