The Baltimore Ravens are almost two touchdown favorites in NFL betting online this week as they host the Buffalo Bills.
The Ravens are coming off a tough overtime loss last week to New England in NFL betting while the Bills had a bye.
Baltimore -13 at SBG – The Ravens are laying 13 points at home against the Bills with the total at 37.5. There isn’t much doubt is there who the gamblers are going to take in this game. They are going to take the Ravens and hope they cover. Very few people are going to want to take the rotten Bills even though they are getting almost two touchdowns.
Letdown Spot – This is a massive letdown spot for the Ravens even though they are coming off a loss. Normally you say that a team coming off a win is in a letdown spot but Baltimore really let a win get away last week against New England and now they host the rotten Bills. There are two things that help Baltimore though. First, the Bills suck and second, the Ravens have their bye after this game.
Baltimore’s Pedestrian Offense – Another concern if you are laying the points in this game with the Ravens is their offense. Their coordinator, Cam Cameron is not very good and he lost the game for the Ravens last week with his conservative play calling. The Ravens have some talent but far too often they just hand the ball off and hope.
Bills Looking for a Win – The Bills are 0-5 straight up and 1-4 against the NFL betting point spread. The Bills will need to find a way in this game to keep the ball if they expect to cover. Buffalo opponents are averaging 10 minutes more of possession time per game than Buffalo. The Bills have not stopped the run and that is a major problem in this game against Ray Rice and the Ravens.
Ravens 6-4 in Last 10 – The Ravens have won and covered six of the last ten in this series against Buffalo. The teams have not met since 2007 when Buffalo won 19-14 at home. The Ravens won the previous season 19-7 in Baltimore. Both of those games went under the NFL betting online total.
