Rashod Bateman’s receiving yards prop bet: why you should bet the over

Current Receiving Yards Over/Under for Rashod Bateman:

In his second year with the Baltimore Ravens, former first-round pick Rashod Bateman is a good bet to hit the over on his receiving yards prop as he takes on an expanded role in the offense. 

  • Increased usage due to departure of Marquise Brown
  • Possibly better suited for Ravens’ offense than Brown

#1 Reason to Bet the Over

Bateman generated 515 receiving yards in 12 games a season ago, which put him on pace for 730 over a full season. 

With Marquise Brown now in Arizona, and no significant pieces added to the offense, Bateman should see enough of a usage increase to easily hit the over on his yardage totals even if his modest yards-per-target rate (7.6) remains constant. 

#2 Reason to Bet the Over

Brown topped 1,000 yards as the Ravens’ primary weapon a season ago, and it’s possible Bateman could surpass Brown’s numbers if he’s given a similar target share. 

Although Brown has blazing speed, he has never been a reliable pass-catcher. In 2021, Brown hauled in 71% of his catchable targets at 10 or more yards downfield 一 a rate Bateman easily outpaced at 83%, according to Sports Info Solutions. 

Although it was a small sample size in Bateman’s rookie year, his reliable catch rate was consistent with his 81% rate during his final collegiate season at Minnesota. For comparison, Brown closed out his college career with a 74% catch rate at that distance. 

With an expected increase in target share and some evidence he may be a more reliable weapon than Brown, it’s easy to envision Bateman hitting the over on his receiving yards prop.
