Ravens Fly High as Road Warriors
The Ravens are 3-2 for the season but could easily be 5-0 had they managed to hold on to their leads. A lot can be blamed on the defense, which has given up the most passing yards. But this same defense also leads the NFL in interceptions (11) while keeping the Bills and Bengals to 23 points or fewer.
On the road, the Ravens are a bit more consistent. It shut down the Jets and dropped 37 on the Patriots. Baltimore covered both spreads and improved to 12-7-1 against the spread (ATS) as a road favorite since 2019, Lamar Jackson’s first full season as the starter.
Jackson has another case to be MVP again, as he has 14 total touchdowns. While he’s cooled off a bit, his playmaking has improved. If he can maintain his efficient and prolific pace, the Ravens will continue to be a top team to bet on online.
Giants Still Underestimated
Beating Chicago and Carolina ain’t nothing to brag about. But wins over Tennessee and Green Bay? Now we may be on to something. Sure, the top seeds of the 2021 season are a shell of themselves. But they’re still two formidable teams. The Giants have edged teams with clutch playmaking on both sides of the ball.
Despite his modest stats, Daniel Jones has three game-winning drives and two fourth-quarter comebacks this season. The man they call “Danny Dimes” plays his best when the Giants are trailing. Four of his five touchdowns have come when the “G-Men” are behind, and his passer rating is at its peak (91.3).
On the defensive end, the Giants are allowing just three points every fourth quarter. That’s the seventh-best mark in the NFL. New York is also one of eight teams with a red-zone scoring defense better than 50 percent (41.2 percent). So this team may yield points and yards, but it covers the most important parts.

Ravens vs Giants Prediction
We understand why the sportsbook pegs the Ravens as the favorites here. Baltimore, on paper, has a significantly better quarterback. Take what Jones does and multiply that and that’s what Jackson has been doing for the team. The Ravens’ defense may also yield plenty of yards but it is good at forcing turnovers and preventing opponents from scoring.
However, the Giants are playing inspired football right now. Jones and Saquon Barkley are playing for bigger contracts even if the former denies it. Baltimore will be hard-pressed to stop Barkley, which will make the Giants’ play action and run/pass option even deadlier – something in which Jones, even in his limited form, excels at.
