Rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson is expected to start with Watson ruled out.

Best Deshaun Watson prop bet vs. Ravens in NFL Week 4

Deshaun Watson UNDER 226.5 passing yards

UPDATE: Watson has been ruled out -- making this prop bet unable to bet.

I’m not sold on an injured Watson against the Baltimore defense. 

Even if he plays, I’ll gladly take the UNDER on Watson’s passing yards, especially since he completed less than 56 percent of his passes in the first two weeks of the 2023 season.

Baltimore comes into this game No. 2 in the NFL in opponent yards per play, so I think the Ravens are well-equipped to slow down the Browns’ attack.

Watson has cleared this number in two of his three games, but there is definitely cause for concern since he didn’t throw much this week.
