Keenan Allen Player Props Vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Total Receiving Yards
- Over 79.5 -121
- Under 79.5 -108
In the six games that Allen has played this season, he has done well against a 79.5 receiving yard total going 6-4 with the over. Five of which came in his last six games played.
Against his overall receiving yard total in his last 8 games, he has gone 6-2 with the over. He is listed as the WR1 on the depth chart and it shows as he is averaging 11.4 yards per reception.
Allen could see even more work in the first playoff game here against the Jags as his running mate, Mike Williams is questionable with a back injury that he suffered in Week 18.
It also helps Allen’s case even more that the Jaguars secondary does not do well against receivers, especially those of his caliber. On the year, the Jags are allowing the fifth most receiving yards per game at 238.5 and recently let both CeeDee Lamb and Amon-Ra St. Brown each go for 110+ yards.
- Over 6.5 -150
- Under 6.5 +114
A 6.5 reception total on Bovada is just too low for Keenan Allen as he has hit the over four of this last five games. He is also Justin Herbert’s favorite target as he has gotten 7+ targets in seven of his 10 games played and is fourth on the team in total targets despite playing in seven fewer games than some of the receivers.
Allen has faced a 6.5 reception total five times in his last seven games and has also gone over it in three of them. Against his overall reception total in those seven games, he is 4-3 with the over.
- Anytime +150
At plus valued NFL odds, Allen’s odds to score a touchdown should be slammed, and for good reason. He has the most red zone targets on the team right now with 13 which he has seen 7 receptions with at a 5.6 yards per reception for three of his four touchdowns on the season. Allen is coming off of a two-touchdown game as well so Herbert is sure to be looking his way.
The Chargers as a whole have done very well in the red zone this season with 3.6 redzone scoring attempts per game this season, the sixth most in the league, and have 1.9 red zone scores per game, the seventh most in the league.
In their last three games though, they have turned that up to 2.7 red zone scores per game. In total, when the Chargers get to the red zone, they find success in scoring a touchdown 54.1% of the time and have done so 72.7% of the time in their last three games.
The Jaguars red zone defense has also struggled letting up 18 receiving TDs this season and let opponents score a TD in the red zone 59.6% of the time.
