Baker Mayfield Prop Bets

  • Over 240 passing yards at +100 (bet $100 to win $100) – WynnBET.

This is the moment Baker Mayfield has been waiting for.

A chance to reestablish himself as an NFL starting quarterback and get one over on the team that traded him away for nothing more than a conditional fifth-round selection shortly before training camp.

Mayfield conducted himself superbly throughout an eventful offseason. There was an incredible amount of uncertainty after the Cleveland Browns successfully landed controversial quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is suspended for the first 11 games for sexual misconduct, but he took everything in his stride and made a huge impression.

The Carolina Panthers are counting on Mayfield to provide the spark this offense has been craving. But keeping his emotions in check is going to be essential for the player in the face of some very familiar faces in Week 1.

Nobody knows more about Mayfield than the Browns, and vice-versa. Just how much this influences the overall outcome is another matter entirely.

Mayfield has to protect the football, get it out quickly, and make the most of red-zone opportunities when they arise. There will be the odd risk thrown in for good measure, but conditions are expected to be wet and wild according to weather forecasts ahead of the contest.

This might change Mayfield’s outlook. But for now, looking at the signal-caller throwing for more than 240 yards is a good bet.
