Why Bet The Baltimore Ravens?

Baltimore is statistically better on both sides of the ball. Joe Flacco and the Ravens (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS) have dropped two straight after winning its first three games of the season and come into this matchup off a heartbreaking 16-10 loss against Washington last weekend while failing to cover the spread as a 3.5-point favorite. The Ravens are limiting their opponents to just 17.6 points per game defensively to ranka stellar seventh in points allowed but are also averaging a miniscule 18.8 points per game offensively to rank 23rd overall.

Why Bet The New York Giants?

The Giants can be explosive offensively and are playing at home. New York (2-3 SU, 0-3- 2 ATS) has lost three straight games coming into this matchup including their uninspiring 23-16 Week 5 loss against Green Bay on Sunday night while earning a push as a 7-point underdog. The Giants have been solid defensively in limiting their opponents to just 21.6 points per game to rank 15th overall, but Eli Manning and the offense are struggling a bunch this season in averaging just 17.8 points per contest to rank an uninspiring 17th in scoring.

My Betting Prediction and Pick

As much as I’d like to see the Giants bounce back to get the win in this contest, I just don’t see it happening for a couple of reasons.

First and foremost, the Ravens fired offensive coordinator Marc Trestman in favor of Marty Morninwheg and I believe that change will give Baltimore’s offense the boost they’re looking for moving forward.

Second, I’m still not sure Giants head coach Ben McAdoo has what it takes to be a leading man after moving from offensive coordinator to first-time head coach. If McAdoo is as much of a genius as New York’s front office claimed, it sure isn’t showing so far with New York’s offense actually going backwards this season.

The Ravens have their share of problems on offense, but they’ve got the big edge in coaching, not to mention the fact that New York is a one-dimensional team that has almost no rushing attack whatsoever. Baltimore has gone 5-1 ATS in its last six road games while going 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Giants. Conversely, the Giants have lost six of their last eight games outright while going 0-3- 2 ATS in its last five games overall. Baltimore wins outright to cover the NFL betting line.

My Pick: Baltimore 28 NY Giants 24
