Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The Ravens are a short favorite heading into Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars.

While the Jaguars have proven they are a scrappy team, this is a curious spread given how dominant Lamar Jackson can be, and the improved performance we have seen from Baltimore’s defense. 

Baltimore should take an early lead in this one and ride it all the way to victory. 

Baltimore -3.5 (-110)

Neither team allows many points, both teams letting up an average of twenty points per game. So while the total will be close to forty, it should remain under 44. Bettors will likely be sweating this one out, but the under is still the smart play.

Under 43.5 Points (-110)


Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans

The line for this game has moved two points since Spread and I discussed it on Talking Touchdowns.

Since Friday afternoon, the news dropped that Ja’Marr Chase will not be playing in this game. So while I liked the Titans’ moneyline then, I love it now, even if it does not offer the same payout.

So while (+125) was great, even money is still a solid offering.

Tennessee (+100) / Tennessee -2.5 (+120)

Anytime Joe Burrow is involved in a close game, it’s liable to turn into a shootout. With two offenses that can put up points, the over is a solid bet.

Over 42.5 (-110)
