PICK: Ravens -3.5
Admittedly, that is most likely a recreation we might steer clear of, however since we will’t do this right here we’re just a bit extra assured within the Ravens. Merely, Baltimore simply has the makings of a greater crew which has peaked on the proper time.

The Ravens have discovered their speeding assault during the last 5 weeks, regardless of the actual fact it didn’t precisely come in opposition to playoff-caliber opponents. And whereas we’re not extraordinarily assured in Lamar Jackson with the ability to lead Baltimore on a deep run along with his arm, he did throw 60 passes for 365 yards in opposition to the Titans within the 2019 playoffs. That Tennessee secondary is way worse this time round, finest depicted because it completed the common season twenty ninth in passing yards allowed.

The Titans offense, then again, is superb. However they are going to be met with a a lot harder job as Baltimore’s protection ranked second in factors allowed and seventh in yards allowed. These quantity could also be a bit inflated seeing how the Ravens benefitted from taking part in the Bengals twice together with each the Giants and Jaguars, however we simply can’t look previous the Tennessee protection.
