Football betting on Sunday has a battle of young quarterbacks on tap as the Baltimore Ravens host the Oakland Raiders.
Rookie Joe Flacco leads the Ravens while JaMarcus Russell leads the Raiders. NFL Week 8 odds have the Ravens about a touchdown favorite in pro football betting.
Football betting history shows that the Ravens have done very well against the Raiders in recent history. In the last 10 meetings between the two teams the Ravens have won seven times and covered the pro football betting pointspread eight times. The last time the two teams played was in 2006 as the Ravens won 28-6 at home according to football betting stats. The Raiders showed last week against the Jets that they can be competitive in football betting. The Ravens don’t have a powerful offense and the Raiders might be able to keep this game close. The Ravens have been a pretty good home favorite in recent seasons though. Since 2005, the Ravens are over 60% laying points at home according to football betting stats. Baltimore has the edges on offense and on defense, but the margins are small so this game might be competitive in terms of football betting.
Gamblers that like wagering on football betting totals may want to take a look at this game. Six of the last eight meetings have gone under the pro football betting total. The Raiders have gone under the total about 60% of the time on the road since 2005 according to pro football betting stats. The Ravens have almost the same type of percentage in terms of the football betting total at home. Since 2005 the Ravens have gone under the total at home almost 60% of the time according to football betting stats.
Laying points in football betting is never easy so the Raiders might get some attention from professional gamblers. Laying a TD though might also be attractive to public bettors who usually just look for the straight up winner instead of the football betting pointspread winner. Gamblers that look at the total will almost assuredly look to the under with these two teams.
