Reasons The Ravens Can Cover The Spread

The Giants are flying back across the ocean from London, which might have an impact on their legs. More importantly, the Ravens defence was better in Week 5, finally rounding into form with a solid performance against the Bengals.

The Ravens have the 2nd best offence by DVOA against the Giants’ 25th best defence. The Ravens are 4th in yards/play and have the ability to get out to big leads, as they’ve shown in both losses. The Giants are likely not the best opponent to come back, if that happens again.

Why The Giants can cover the spread

The Giants have one of the best rushing attacks in the game. 4th in yards/rush and 6th in rushing DVOA, the Giants have a chance to run the clock and keep this low scoring, which helps an underdog cover.

The Giants also gained more valuable experience in close games by beating Green Bay in Week 5. For a team that often gagged away winnable games, getting better in 4th Quarters is a crucial step for them. Them beating Green Bay in that way makes it easier to see how they get better in key moments.

Reasons to bet the over

The Ravens do have offensive threats – they scored 20 on the Bills in less than a half of football. If they can get out to an early lead, the Giants will become more pass happy – and either create big plays or turnovers.

The way this game goes over is if it gets sped up, and the Giants cannot run the ball down Baltimore’s throats. If the Ravens get an early lead, then the over is well within reach.

Reasons to bet the under

This game might be one of the slowest of the season. Both teams have run-first offences and mobile quarterbacks, which means that there will be less clock stoppages and longer scoring drives.

Both defences are in the top half of the league in getting off the field on third down. Unless the Ravens connect on a big play, it will be a lot of consistent, but slow offence. And with a total in the mid 40s and a lower expected number of plays, that leans under.

Ravens vs. Giants Props: Matchups To Watch For

Daniel Jones O/U Rushing Yards: / ()

Jones’ rushing has been key to the Giants offence, and has given them a way out of hard spots all season. Whether or not he can do that against the Ravens will determine whether or not the Giants can extend drives and be competitive in this game.

Mark Andrews Receptions: O/U / ()

Last week the Ravens went back to him a ton, with eight receptions against the Bengals. If Lamar has to pass, it’ll likely be a lot of Andrews, who has been a reliable checkdown target for Jackson in their times together.

Final Thoughts

This line will likely bounce around, but it won’t move through a key number in all likelihood. The Ravens should win this game – at 3-2, they’ve underperformed their talent level, and their 3rd in the league overall DVOA compares favourably to the Giants in 18th.

The Ravens winning this comfortably should be the expectation, but this line is in no man’s land for a reason. Nobody is quite sure what to make of the Giants at this point. Mediocre in the advanced metrics, they’re somehow 4-1.

This line is the line you put out when it’s unclear whether the Giants are actually decent or just really lucky. Last week’s win over the Packers is impressive sounding, but it’s hard to say how good Green Bay really is too.

The total in this game feels too high, given that both teams are going to have that clock running all game long. The Ravens do have big play potential, but they also have a penchant for long drives that take lots of time to develop.

This line is not reflective of the gulf in true talent between the teams, and Baltimore should be around a touchdown favourite. That they’re not is odd.
