Ravens Trying to Find Consistency
On Sunday Night Football in Week Five, the Ravens defeated the Cincinnati Bengals at home, 19-17. Kicker Justin Tucker managed to make all four of his field goal attempts, including the game-winning kick of 43 yards with seconds remaining.
Lamar Jackson, the quarterback, had 174 passing yards, less than 200 yards for the second week in a row. He had not gained 58 rushing yards since Week 1 against the Bengals.
The Ravens’ defense has had a difficult year, especially in comparison to recent years with the departure of longtime defensive coordinator Wink Martindale in the summer. He is currently on the Giants’ sideline, and they seem to surely miss him.
In Week Five, the Baltimore Ravens Defense outperformed the Bengals, recording three sacks and one turnover. Despite this, they’re allowing the fifth most yards in the NFL and 23.4 points per game.
Giants Look to Move to 5-1
Before the season began, hardly anyone predicted that the New York Giants would be the better team when they faced the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. The G-Men are currently in control of the NFC East and the Wild Card race thanks to the GIant’s new Head Coach Brian Daboll.
At London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Giants defeated the Green Bay Packers by a score of 27–22. For the fourth time this year, running back Saquon Barkley has surpassed 100 total yards after accumulating 70 yards. Daniel Jones’ game plans have been straightforward thus far, and the fourth-year quarterback has reacted well, throwing for 848 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.
In their 27-22 victory over Green Bay, the New York Giants Defense limited the Packers to 222 passing yards and 94 rushing yards while grabbing two sacks and surrendering just 22 points. The Packers attempted to tie the game following a 14-play drive, but the Giants’ defense was able to force a turnover on downs in the red zone.
Betting Odds and Lines
The Baltimore Ravens are the betting favorites in this game, with the line set at -5.5 (-110). In terms of the moneyline, the New York Giants are given chances of +205 to win, while the Baltimore Ravens are given odds of -245. The Over/Under for this NFL game is currently set at 45 points (-110).
You cannot deny that the Giants and Ravens play close games, regardless of your opinion of either club. This Giants-Ravens game should be tight, whether you want to blame it on the fact that they are both poor teams or the fact that they have faced tougher competition.
Even though the Ravens appear to be the superior team in this game, Brian Daboll is leading the Giants to an absolutely incredible season right now.
The G-Men will have the home field advantage in this one, and I think this is another close defensive battle. Expect the Giants to cover and potentially win this one outright.
Betting Pick: New York Giants +5.5 (-110)
