2. Terry McLaurin over 67.5 receiving yards (-112)
It seems impossible, but Terry McLaurin has just eight catches (on 19 targets) for 74 yards over his last two games.
In Week 5, folks looked at this stat line and just assumed former Ohio State teammate Marshon Lattimore locked him down. If you watched film, though, that was anything but the case. Taylor Heinicke actually missed McLaurin on a number of throws. Unfortunately, the same thing happened in Week 6.
It’s been heartbreaking to see McLaurin, a superstar talent, be limited by subpar quarterback play over the first three years of his career, but he’s continued to produce regardless of who’s called the shots under center.
McLaurin has two 100-yard games this season, and we like him to notch his third against a Packers secondary that’s without stud cornerback Jaire Alexander, who’s on injured reserve with an AC joint injury.
Alexander is one of a few lockdown CBs in the league, so McLaurin should have a field day this Sunday. Behind the 2020 Pro Bowler, the Packers have Eric Stokes, Kevin King and Rasul Douglas at cornerback. See what we’re saying?
If you need anymore convincing, McLaurin is due for a blow-up game after posting two duds (for his standards) in a row. At -112 odds (bet $112 to win $100), we love Scary Terry to eclipse 68 or more receiving yards with ease.
