    Ravens -2.5 looks delicious

    Raven players must be chomping at the bit after that shit storm vs Miami. I think you’re going to see a pissed off defense and Mac Jones will pay for it. One of my largest bets of the season and I hate the RatBirds. I may also take an alternative line -10 or some shit. This game will not be close.

    The line makes sense. Patriots defense is legit. They are the best at covering Tight Ends but the linebackers are a bit banged up. I also think the Ravens receiver can stretch the field which opens up the entire offense. The Patriots offense looked better with the spread vs the Steelers but the Ravens are a defense that can defend spread and 2 TE's as well. I just don't think the Patriots offense can keep up with the Ravens offense. The Ravens are averaging 31 ppg. They should get close to this tomorrow. But losing to the Dolphins the way they did. In embarrassing fashion. They had all week to stew on that game. It is a challenge facing a pissed of Lamar Jackson. The Patriots will be on the receiving end of this beat down.

    The Ravens defense has been doing this for years now but no one really has paid attention because it’s “the Ravens defense” and they’ve just blamed Lamar while he’s been carrying the team. I doubt they get pissed enough to make a difference

    Not saying you won’t win. But don’t trust this defense

    if the ravens didn't collapse last week this line would have been higher. it is about perception.

    Pats home opener. I'm not sure what to make of this game though.

    Locked Ravens-3 in the other day and agree it looks too easy which is usually a red flag.

    I do like the fact the Ravens are coming off that awful loss.

    Balt Overrated IMO. Line should be a PK. Will take NE as books are gifting the player about 2-3 points.

    im not following you Hooper? Take away last year where the Ravens were decimated with injuries and the Ravens defense was easily a top 5 crew for the last decade. Is last weeks collapse a sign of things to come or an anomaly? I think it was the perfect wake up call for the defense. It’s a huge angle imo. All the teams that lost last week in ridiculously ways will bounce back this week in a big way.

    I totally disagree coach. Your confidence level should be different each game. I am much more confident betting teams i’m very familiar with, what there tendencies are and how their style matches up with their opponents. Betting the same is really throwing darts.

    Ravens do not have that legit pass rusher on this unit.

    Losing Judon a couple years ago hurt.

    BB doesn’t play the disrespect angle much. Just do your job. I just don’t have a lot of faith in their offense. The Steelers defense is really awful and they scored 17 points? Only 7 vs the Dolphins? Can they keep up with the Ravens for the entire game? I don’t think so. As long as Lamar doesn’t cough up the ball, they should outscore the Pats. Had the Ravens won last week in blowout fashion, I would be all over the Pats but to give up 28 unanswered points??? There’s going to be a huge bounce back. The Ravens are the better team. They get Dobbins back. A few bruises on the OLine but great spot to bounce back big.

    I actually agree with most of what you say here. At this time Balt. is the better team. Even so I would never feel very comfortable beeting against Patriots getting points. I'm not touching it so I wish you the BOL.

    Yeah, I really don't like betting against the Patriots, especially at home. It's not a long term recipe for success. But players are emotional. They get up and down for games. The Raiders are another team that I think bounces back big today as well and they are also on the road. Could be an early burial.

    I think the Pats are still trying to figure out who they are on offense. They are down a receiver which won't help. So, they'll try to grind it out on the ground, I think. If the Ravens can't get stops, it will be a looong day.
