Why bet on Baltimore versus Washington
Harbaugh hasn’t played Lamar Jackson much, but the Ravens still won their first two preseason games. Trace McSorley led the offense in the 17-16 victory over the Saints. McSorley got hurt so former Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley led Baltimore to a 20-3 win against Carolina. Huntley can run and pass, which means if he gets the start on Saturday, the Ravens should have a good shot at covering.

Why bet on Washington against Baltimore
In their first preseason game, former Colorado quarterback Steven Montez threw for 108 yards when completing 17-of-24. Montez threw a pick and a TD. Ryan Fitzpatrick, the WFT’s likely Week 1 starter, played in the second game, which is why Kyle Allen or Montez figures to get the start on Saturday. River’s team should be in good hands no matter who gets the start.

Final Betting Analysis: Baltimore Ravens at Washington Football Team
The Washington Football Team hasn’t played great. But most of the WFT’s issues are on the offensive side. Ron Rivera’s defense has stepped it up during the preseason, which means a couple of things.
First, Rivera won’t play many of his defensive stars. Second, Rivera won’t push the envelope on offense because he knows either Tyler Heinicke or Ryan Fitzpatrick will start this season.
Baltimore, like Kansas City and Buffalo, can’t help but play hard and win football games. Tyler Huntley has been somewhat of a revelation. The former Utah Ute completed 24-of-34 for 187 yards and a pick in the Ravens’ victory over Carolina.
Huntley also rushed for 23 yards. If he gets the start, Baltimore should do enough, especially playing against the WFT’s second-string defense, to win and cover.
