    Best bets for Ravens-Rams 🤑

    Best bets for Ravens-Rams

    ESPN PLUS ($ MATERIAL)

    The 2019 NFL season rolls on, and we're here with a betting preview for Monday night's game on ESPN between the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Rams.

    The Ravens are sitting pretty atop the AFC North, while the Rams are in real need of a win to remain in the playoff hunt.

    Joe Fortenbaugh, Preston Johnson and Doug Kezirian offer their best bets for the Week 12 finale.

    Note: Odds courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook as of Sunday evening, unless otherwise noted.

    Baltimore Ravens (-3, 46) at Los Angeles Rams

    Fortenbaugh: Any mention of the 2019 Ravens instantly conjures up images of MVP front-runner Lamar Jackson slicing and dicing his way through opposing defenses in vintage Michael Vick fashion. But I'd prefer to focus our attention on the matchup that matters most in this Monday night tilt, which features the Los Angeles offense against the Baltimore defense. Entering Week 12, the Ravens rank sixth in the NFL in scoring defense. In four games against top-16 scoring defenses this season (vs. Saints, vs. 49ers, at Steelers, vs. Bears), the Rams averaged a paltry 15.7 points and 281.5 total yards per game with eight turnovers. Not great, Bob! As for the Ravens' defense, their in-season trade for cornerback Marcus Peters from this very Rams team has drastically altered the club's trajectory. In four games since acquiring Peters, the Ravens are 4-0 straight up and 4-0 against the spread while forcing 10 turnovers and surrendering an average of just 14.0 points. In three of those four aforementioned contests, the Ravens dismantled current playoff occupants Seattle, New England and Houston. Great, Bob!

    Rams +3.5 or better

    Everything about this line tells me to take the Rams.. it just doesnít make sense. But I just donít think the rams can score enough to cover.. not to mention Iím a ravens fan and will be out in Baltimore watching it.. also a small tid bit.. I could be wrong but donít think I am, every week this season the public has not lost both Sunday and Monday night games.. with the public going down last night, does that trend continue?

    (edit: week 6 public lost both sun and mon games.. only week)

    I think it's just hard for us to accept that the Rams are not the same team from last year

    They have little chance of making the playoffs, realistically,
    would have to win out.. and the schedule is hard.
    Ravens also have little chance of gaining 1st seed in AFC.

    The game appears important, but it really isn't.

    Ravens are tough this year. Rams still struggling to get back to form from last year, they're still not there yet offensively. Goff getting pressured alot this year, OL struggling to protect.

    I think you gotta go with the Ravens on the ML in this one. Maybe the OVER hits too..

    L.Jackson scores a rushing TD (+150)

    Really like this one. He has done it in 4 of last 5 games.

    My analysis tool says Ravens by 8.3 points. but I think I am going to lay off this one. The Rams are to much Jekyll and Hyde for me in this type of game.

    Because that number is absurd. Ravens are on the road against a good football team playing for their playoff lives. The -3.5 line is already inflated because of Baltimore’s recent streak. 8.6 is just a bad analysis tool.

    Anything can happen, it’s sports. Ravens can win by thirty. But any computer sim that had them winning by an average of 8.6 on the road against the Rams tonight is comical.

    Lol that's not how NFL teams think at all bro.

    Ravens are going for that 1 seed. They have the tiebreaker over the Pats. Pats still play Houston KC and Buffalo, all games they can lose.

    This game means everything to the Ravens...

    Well going into tonight's game its 62-48-2 ATS (56%) since week 5 (when I start using it as its based on the past 4 games) against the opening line. This week its 7-5-1, had the Jets winning and the 49ers winning by 9.3. Its not perfect but I will take it, and each week it has some head scratchers and more often than not its right. Its not a compute sim...its straight math based on recent performance.

    Which is kinda funny if you think about it. Almost every year with the exception of a few teams Pats, Peyton's Colts/Broncos etc...the SB teams rarely live up to the expectations the following season. We are all guilty. Success in the NFL is finicky, schedule, health, additions/subtractions affecting chemistry; just so many factors from season to season.

    BOL. the way the #'s all scream to take Baltimore in this spot, (rams 0-4 ats against winning teams, 2-7 on MNF, Baltimore 15-6 on grass, 20-7 ats vs winning teams), its odd the line is only 3.5 but I agree with LA being more desperate.

    My perception is "the more desperate team" angle doesn't hold much weight when it comes to picking winners. Everything about this game screams Ravens win by 7 to me. The odd line gives me pause, but what should the line really be? If this game were in Baltimore, the line would be 8-9, which seems about right.

    Agree w most these thoughts. Love ravens secondary now. Lambs oline was very good opening holes in the run game vs bears last week, I feel like for rams to have a shot they gonna have to run the ball and hold ravens to at least tied for their season low in points which 23 (very impressive btw), they prob need to keep them below that cause donít see rams scoring more than 23 actually.

    Can they?

    I think they have a Chance, if Donald can get good push up the middle it outta hurt ravens rushing attack. A lot of it gonna be up to the rams offense as they will need to control top w their run game. Seems like they came to realization last week there no more saving gurley cause it now or never for their season.

    Best defense against ravens is keeping their offense off the field!! One big concern for rams d would be do they still struggle covering tight ends? That used to be a big weakness for them but I dunno if that has remained a problem? Ravens very good getting their tight ends involved in passing game.

    Rams/under parlay seems to correlate I think. Just donít see them winning if this goes over, so get some really good value if that is accurate. Iím up in air on whether to play 1st half under or full game? I could see either or both defenses being worn out by 4th in this one facing 2 physical rushing attacks (when rams run successfully we saw last week how good Goff can be late off play action).

    The desperation angle very tough to cap cause Iíve seen many times the team who ďneeds itĒ come out and play with their hair on fire. That said I am also a fan of saying ďthey need the win cause they just havenít been very good to be in this positionĒ, so yea I dunno, lol.

    Exactly.

    You don't want to be playing the Pats at home in the playoffs.
