Wes Welker Prop Odds
FOXBORO, MA (The Spread) – Wes Welker will have to step up for the Patriots with the loss of Rob Gronkowski. Here is a look at the prop odds available for Welker in Sunday’s AFC Championship.
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Welker has been given over/under odds of 90.5 receiving yards and 7.5 receptions for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.
Welker caught 118 passes for 1,354 yards during the regular season. That is an average of 7.4 receptions and 84.6 receiving yards per game. In last week’s game with Houston, Welker caught eight passes for 131 yards. He was targeted 13 times. The Patriots lost at Baltimore earlier this season, and Welker caught eight passes for 142 yards in that game. He has had at least 8 receptions in eight of the 17 games played this season. He has also had at least 91 receiving yards in eight of the 17 games.
The Ravens have an average passing defense, allowing an average of 228.1 yards per game through the air this season. That put Baltimore 17th in the NFL for passing yards allowed. The Ravens allowed Peyton Manning to throw for 290 yards last week and the Colts’ Andrew Luck threw for 288 yards on Baltimore two weeks back. Certainly, you would expect Tom Brady to have some success against this passing defense, but will Welker be part of that success?
