Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns Player Props (12/12/21)

The AFC North rivalry between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns is set for their second meeting this season on Sunday, December 12th, at noon EST. The teams met two weeks ago with a win for the AFC North leaders, the Ravens emerging victorious with a 16-10 win. Both quarterbacks struggled in the game resulting in high turnovers and sloppy play. The Browns are coming out of a bye week and hopefully gave Baker Mayfield enough time to recover from a shoulder injury he suffered earlier in the season that has dramatically impacted his performance. Hopefully, we’ll have a better game from both QBs, leading to an exciting matchup.

Baker Mayfield Under 229.5 Passing Yards

Baker Mayfield has had one of his most disappointing seasons to date. He has led the Browns to a 6-6 season entering Week 14 with 2,413 yards on the season. Mayfield averages 219.4 yards per game but had 247 yards last time the two teams met. The Ravens have a stacked rush defense, which stopped Nick Chubb in his tracks. However, the Ravens have a very shaky pass defense. They rank in the bottom five defenses in the category, giving Mayfield the opportunity to take the ball in the air. Baker is missing his new receiver, Anthony Schwartz, but has the return of Jarvis Landry and his trusted Donovan Peoples-Jones to look for as targets. If the bye week gave Baker the necessary time to heal, he has the potential to return to the peak potential we saw last year. As a dedicated Browns fan, I hope this can be Baker’s redemption game.

Lamar Jackson Over 0.5 Interceptions

Lamar Jackson was known to be one of the most versatile quarterbacks in the league for years. His pass and rush ability were unmatched by any other QB in the league. However, Jackson has struggled to find his groove this season. In the last meeting against the Browns, Jackson threw four interceptions against the top 10 Browns defense. Jackson has thrown 13 interceptions so far and has thrown at least one in seven out of eleven games. The interceptions are partially the fault of his receivers popping them in the air, but Jackson’s accuracy has been on the decline all year. Browns cornerback Denzel Ward and safety John Johnson III will be aggressively covering the Raven’s receivers and have the ability to force picks with ease. Jackson will have to focus on his precision to prevent turnovers, but I don’t see that happening this week against the Browns in Cleveland.

Kareem Hunt Over 33.5 Rushing Yards

Kareem Hunt is known as one of the biggest weapons on the Browns’ defense. After his injury in Week 6, the Browns’ rush game significantly decreased. Because of his five-game absence, Hunt only has 381 rush yards on the season. However, he averages 54 yards per game. Hunt made his first appearance back after his injury against the Ravens two weeks ago and had a less than impressive game with seven carries for only 20 yards. However, I believe the bye week could have given Kareem an extra week to heal and earn back the strength he needs to remain an explosive player. The Ravens have an incredible rush defense, but Hunt only needs one or two holes in the line to take off and use his speed and strength to put up massive yards.
