Falcons vs Ravens Prediction, Game Preview, Live Stream, Odds and Picks

Ravens in Tight Race

At 5-9, the Atlanta Falcons are a crumbling unit. They were once 4-4, with some thinking they had an outside shot at the playoffs. Since then, they’ve lost five of six, benched quarterback Marcus Mariota and come apart at the seams.

Rookie Desmond Ridder will lead the way into Baltimore against a Ravens team that’s desperate to win. Atlanta may well be dismissed out of postseason contention with a loss.

Falcons vs Ravens Betting Lines

Falcons Grounded Recently

The Atlanta Falcons 21-18 loss to the Saints in New Orleans Saints last Sunday dropped them into a three-way, second-place tie in the division at an underwhelming 5-9. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers losing as well kept Atlanta just one game out of reach with some playoff hope.

The offense needs to do more. This team has scored 18 or fewer points in three straight, nine of their last dozen. They aren’t likely to win on the road at Baltimore unless there’s an increase.

Ravens Missing Jackson

It’s been impressive what Baltimore has been able to accomplish without quarterback Lamar Jackson over their last three games. However, last week’s ugly 13-3 defeat to the Browns in Cleveland did expose their flaws noticeably.

Despite JK Dobbins’ 125 rushing yards, just three points on the day, Baltimore’s least in a game since 2018.

Kicker Justin Tucker uncharacteristically missed a couple of field goals (one blocked), and the Ravens had two turnovers. A sloppy performance by a team with a shot to win its division.

Falcons vs Ravens Picks and Prediction

Predicted Score: Ravens 20, Falcons 13

  • Worth the Moneyline?

The Ravens might not have Lamar Jackson (knee) available but are a better overall team than the Falcons. Atlanta still has work to do on the offense with Ridder at the helm.

  • Worth the ATS?

The Ravens are listed as 7½-point favorites in the sportsbook, but that might be too much to cover. Baltimore is taken to win this game, but by over a touchdown is hard to imagine. Especially if Jackson, who hasn’t returned to practice, does not play.

  • Worth the Totals?

It’s low at 37½. This doesn’t seem out of the ordinary, but it feels as though the under is the better option with your NFL picks. Both teams are offensively-challenged now.
