Russell Wilson Week 5 Thursday Night NFL Player Props

Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-149, Caesars)

Wilson is averaging 2.25 touchdowns passing per game, and the NFL Player Props Tool gives him a great chance of replicating that on Thursday Night Football. Despite the heavier juice at -149 on over 1.5 passing touchdowns, the over has a 63% expected win rate. Wilson projects for 2.02 touchdowns against the Rams and draws a 6% return on investment to the over. The Rams defense ranks 17th in pass DVOA and have only allowed four touchdowns passing through four games. Considering Chris Carson has not practiced on a short week due to a neck injury, the Seahawks should lean on Wilson once again at home, where he is averaging 2.01 touchdowns per game over his career. Pay up for the juice and grab the over.

Over 267.5 Yards Passing (-115, DraftKings)

Wilson has thrown for 261 yards per game, but the props tool suggests he will be exceeding that tonight. The NFL Player Props Tool gives him a 59% chance of going over 267.5 yards passing against the Rams, projecting Wilson for 282.04 yards and a 10% return on investment on the over. Wilson faces a Rams defense surrendering 297 yards passing per game. He has thrown for 233.94 yards per game at home over his career, so something is going to give on Thursday Night.

Under 24.5 Completions (-120, Caesars)

The completions have been harder for Wilson this season, and the props tool expects more of the same on Thursday Night Football. The tool gives Wilson a 58% chance of going under 24.5 completions, projecting him to come one completion shy of the line and giving the under a 6% return on investment. The Rams defense has allowed the second-most completions per game this season, surrendering 29 completions per game. Still, the under is the play.
