Terry McLaurin Over 64.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
There are only a few wide receivers that can do what McLaurin has done this season. Despite being the only healthy receiving threat on the team this season, McLaurin has averaged 73.5 receiving yards per game. Furthermore, he has averaged 76.8 receiving yards per game over the past four contests, totaling 100 or more receiving yards twice during that span. More importantly, McLaurin had 103 receiving yards on only five receptions last week against Stephon Gilmore and the Carolina Panthers. Meanwhile, the Seahawks have given up an average of 166.4 receiving yards per game to wide receivers this season. Last week, the Seahawks gave up 78 receiving yards to A.J. Green on only four receptions. McLaurin should hit the over on this prop bet early in the fourth quarter.
Russell Wilson Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-120)
After missing four weeks with a finger injury on his throwing hand, Wilson returned in Week 10. Unfortunately, the finger injury is still affecting Wilson. He has thrown for only 368 passing yards and zero touchdowns in the two games since returning from the injury. However, Wilson averaged 2.3 passing touchdowns per game before the injury, throwing at least two touchdowns in 75 percent of those games. Meanwhile, Washington has given up 24 passing touchdowns this season, second-most in the NFL. They have allowed quarterbacks to average 2.4 passing touchdowns per game this season, giving up over 1.5 passing touchdowns in 70 percent of the games. More importantly, Washington has given up four passing touchdowns in four games this season. Expect Wilson to have a bounce-back performance tonight.
Antonio Gibson Over 1.5 Receptions (-145)
While Washington uses J.D. McKissic in two-minute situations and on third down, it hasn’t kept Gibson from having a role in the passing game this season. Gibson has averaged 1.9 receptions per game this season, totaling two or more receptions in all but two games. More importantly, Gibson has at least two receptions in six of the past seven contests. Meanwhile, the Seahawks have given up an average of seven receptions per game to running backs this season. Furthermore, they have given up an average of 7.8 receptions per game to running backs over their past four games. McKissic has averaged 3.8 receptions per game this season. Even if McKissic finishes with five receptions tonight, Gibson should have no trouble finishing with at least two receptions in this matchup.
D.K. Metcalf Over 65.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
Despite the issues at quarterback, Metcalf has been the best Seattle wide receiver this season. He has averaged 63.7 receiving yards per game this season, totaling 95 or more receiving yards in 30 percent of the games. More importantly, Metcalf averaged 71.3 receiving yards per game before Wilson suffered the finger injury. Meanwhile, Washington has given up 1,817 receiving yards to wide receivers this season, the fourth-most in the NFL entering Week 12. They have given up an average of 181.7 receiving yards per game to wide receivers this season. Furthermore, Washington has given up an average of 68.8 receiving yards per game to No. 1 wide receivers over their past six games. Not only will Wilson bounce back tonight, but Metcalf will finish with over 80 receiving yards.
Taylor Heinicke Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-120)
Since taking over as the starting quarterback, Heinicke has been very inconsistent. He had over 1.5 passing touchdowns in each of his first three starts this season. However, Heinicke has struggled since Week 4. Over the past six games, Heinicke has averaged only 1.2 passing touchdowns per game. More importantly, he had over 1.5 passing touchdowns in only one of those six contests. Furthermore, Heinicke has more games this season with under 1.5 passing touchdowns (six) than games with over 1.5 passing touchdowns (four). Meanwhile, the Seahawks have held quarterbacks to only 1.4 passing touchdowns per game this season. They have held quarterbacks to under 1.5 passing touchdowns in five of their past six games. Expect Heinicke to struggle in this game.
