NFL Player Props for Lamar Jackson & Will Levis: Jackson Sets Sights on AFC No. 1 Seed

The NFL regular season is beginning to wind down, and with playoffs on the horizon, we take a look at these two dynamic quarterbacks who are in different scenarios. This week we will take a look at NFL player props for Will Levis & Lamar Jackson for NFL Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 31. While nerves are at an all-time high for both respected leaders, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing we have you covered with the best Kentucky sportsbook bonuses.

Lamar Jackson Player Props Against the Miami Dolphins

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are white hot. An intense defense with players like Marlon Humphrey and Kyle Hamilton to go with rising star Zay Flowers and veteran Odell Beckham Jr. on offense should give Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniels all he can handle in week 17. Jackson has been on a tear and continues to outplay every quarterback and team game to game, on the road or at home. 

Impressive as this is, the Dolphins can catch fire quickly and run wild with Tyreek Hill. Miami has the edge in the running game and even a slight edge at wide receiver, but the primary decision maker and head of the giant comes at quarterback. The Ravens have a game changer, and Miami has a game manager. The way this league plans for Tua Tagovailoa versus how it plans for Jackson is drastically different. With that being said, let’s look at the game props for the MVP frontrunner. 

Lamar Jackson Passing Yards Over 230.5 (-114 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook

A couple things are leading us to believe that Jackson is in for a big day on Sunday. First, the last three games played at home all resulted in Jackson throwing for over 200 yards, which is a great trend for sports bettors. Secondly, the Dolphins have built a reputation this season on losing to top-tier teams. Baltimore is at the top of the food chain in the NFL, and with Lamar looking to cement a case for league MVP, this one looks like a promising line. 

Lamar Jackson Passing Touchdowns Over 1.5 (+126 odds on Caesars Sportsbook)

Jackson has made the pairing of touchdowns and passing yard trends like peanut butter and jelly. The big key to this one is to not overthink it. When Jackson throws for over 200 yards, good things follow. Not every game can be a super human performance, and something to keep note of is what happens when he throws for less than 200 yards. When he fails to meet that threshold, Jackson throws for only one touchdown or less. One time this season Jackson had a multi-touchdown day when he threw for less than 200 yards and that was back at the beginning of October against the Browns.

Will Levis Player Props Against the Houston Texans 

Tennessee has been eliminated from playoff contention, and while that is a bit of a bummer, it makes no difference to Levis. The Kentucky alum suffered an ankle injury against the Texans in Week 15, and has since done everything he can to return to the field. A couple of good practice sessions in the past few days points to Levis suiting up for the Titans this week against Houston.

Levis is becoming a leader before our eyes, and no doubt wants to see the turf against this AFC South rival, especially after week 15. The Texans grinded out a win in overtime 19-16 that added to an already bad day for Levis. Below are a couple of player props for Levis, so take a look and comb through what you decide is best.

Will Levis First Touchdown Scorer (+2800 odds on Bet365 Sportsbook)

Levis has only one rushing touchdown this year, and it was in his last game played against Houston, Levis opened up the game and put the first points on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run in the middle of the first quarter. With this being his first game back, Levis could be in line to make a big splash and what better way than to show everyone he is healthy than with a rushing touchdown to open up the game? Add to the fact that this is the same team that Tennessee got embarrassed by when Levis went down and we have a vengeful Titans QB with a chip on his shoulder — very dangerous to say the least. 

 Will Levis Passing Yards Under 212.5 (-114 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook)

In his most recent game, Levis threw for 199 yards against the Texans. In addition to this performance, he has thrown for over 220 yards in four games. Levis might be well enough to play but not be at a full 100%. Wideouts Chris Moore and DeAndre Hopkins were both limited participants at practice, and if they both aren’t ready for Sunday, this could add an extra hurdle for Levis to clear. Looking at how many times Levis has thrown over 212.5 yards this season, and the possibility of losing his starters, the line just looks too big for Levis to overcome.
