The Baltimore Ravens have cruised to a 2-0 start, and we’re sharing our top Lamar Jackson NFL player prop predictions based on the best NFL odds for his matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has his team off to a 2-0 start, and the former MVP looked much sharper in Week 2. He completed 24 of 33 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-24 road win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
He added another 54 yards on the ground, too.
With Baltimore trailing in Week 1, Jackson’s numbers were far less impressive, so how will Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts play out for the gifted quarterback?

Lamar Jackson Over 224.5 passing yards (+105 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐
Jackson’s performance in Week 1 against the Houston Texans definitely made people doubt him this Sunday against the Colts. But did you know the Texans were actually an NFL 10th-best against the pass last season? Also, for fantasy points allowed, Houston had the number one defense against the quarterback.
The Texans have proven to be an unexpectedly formidable opponent for quarterbacks, so Jackson's performance against them should not be used to judge his abilities this week. In Week 2, Jackson displayed an improvement as a quarterback, and he's set to face a defense that recently surrendered 384 passing yards to Texans QB C.J. Stroud. Therefore, his upcoming matchup offers a more favorable opportunity to showcase his skills and effectiveness in the passing game.
Jackson could slow down if his team jumps out to a huge lead, but this number really isn’t that high. Indianapolis allows 287 passing yards per game, so Jackson should hit this number. Fan Duel's total offered is 221.5, but the price is very inflated. Stick with DraftKings and the better price for this one.
Lamar Jackson Over 48.5 rushing yards (-110 via bet365) ⭐⭐⭐
So far, the Colts’ D allowed just 24 QB rushing yards on 10 carries. However, against Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence, it gave up three yards per carry. With Baltimore running back Justice Hill out for this game, the Ravens only have Gus Edwards and an unknown Melvin Gordon. This should let Jackson factor heavily in the rushing attack.
Jackson ran for 54 yards on 12 carries last week against the Bengals. He has at least six rushes in both games this season. In 2022, he topped this number in eight of 12 matchups. He has an added advantage because the Colts didn't face him last season. It’s been a while since they’ve gameplanned for Jackson, which could be a soft spot for their defense.
Lamar Jackson Over 1.5 passing touchdowns (+114 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐
This is more of a value play than
anything, but the Colts allowed exactly two passing touchdowns in each game this season. After being held without a TD in Week 1,
Jackson threw two last week. One of those TD passes was to his favorite
target, tight end Mark Andrews, who missed the contest against Houston.
Since Indy can't stop the pass, and Baltimore able to score a lot of points, this Over is definitely worth playing, especially at +110 or better. The only real concern is Jackson stealing a rushing touchdown from himself. However, he’s only rushed for three TDs in his last 14 games.
