The Ravens will likely be a small football betting favorite in Week 2 NFL odds. Here is a look at this NFL betting matchup.
NFL betting shows that the Vikings are led by quarterback Tavarais Jackson while the Ravens are trying to find a starting quarterback. NFL betting information has Jackson going for the first quarter or so in this game followed by Gus Frerotte, Brooks Bollinger and rookie John David Booty. Many NFL betting experts like the rotation of the Vikings at quarterback.
Football betting information has the Ravens as more of an unknown all the way around. NFL betting information tells us that the Ravens have a new head coach in John Harbaugh who replaced Brian Billick. The offensive coordinator of the Ravens according to football betting info is Cam Cameron which is strange considering Cameron had a terrible time in Miami. The only positive for Baltimore according to football betting experts is that Rex Ryan is still the defensive coordinator. That could mean many games in the preseason for Baltimore go under the NFL betting total. NFL betting history shows that the Ravens were 8-3 to the under in the last three years of preseason action.
NFL betting information tells us that Troy Smith will get the start for Baltimore in the game and play most of the first half. Kyle Boller started last week and didn’t play that well in the Ravens’ 16-15 NFL betting win over New England. Smith will get his chance to make an impression on the coaching staff in Saturday’s game against the Vikings. "We're looking at it as two games with balanced repetitions," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. The quarterback rotation for the Ravens according to NFL betting information has Boller and Joe Flacco following Smith with both getting time in the second half.
Week 2 NFL odds will probably have the Ravens as a small NFL betting favorite since they are at home.
