Straight Up (Gilad Chudler)
The Baltimore Ravens devastated the Cleveland Browns 38-6 in a lopsided matchup to start the season. Lamar Jackson completed 20-of-25 for 275 yards. He had three touchdown passes and carried the ball seven times for 45 yards.
Mark Andrews had 5 receptions for 58 yards and two touchdowns while Marquise Brown caught 5 passes for 101 yards. Their defense was looking solid with two sacks as well.
The Houston Texans had a tough matchup in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Deshaun Watson had a good game completing 20-of-32 attempts for 253 yards and a touchdown pass. He carried the ball 6 times for 27 yards and a touchdown of his own. David Johnson also had a strong showing with 11 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown. Will Fuller rounded things out with 8 receptions for 112 yards.
Although the Ravens are the favored team and will probably win this game, don’t count out the Texans. Consider the Texans for a point spread bet, but go with the Ravens on the moneyline.
Against the Spread (Sebastian Morera)
The Ravens looked great in their 38-6 season opener against the Browns. The fact that Cleveland ran up the score against Cincinnati Thursday night makes the Ravens’ defense look that much better.
Now Baltimore’s defense has an opportunity to strut its stuff against Houston’s offense. The Texans looked lackluster in their debut against the Chiefs. Houston was a 10-point underdog in that contest and ultimately lost by 14. Now the odds are pegging them as a 7-point underdog against Baltimore and I’m fully expecting the Ravens to cover.
Lamar Jackson is coming off an MVP season and is bound to be deadlier in his third NFL year.
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
QB Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens crushed the Cleveland Browns in Week 1 after scoring 38 points. Expect that trend to continue, remember that the Ravens were No. 1 in points per game last season with 33.2.
The Houston Texans disappointed everybody in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Yes, they scored 20 points, but two touchdowns were in ‘garbage time’. WR Will Fuller (8 REC, 112 YDS) looked good, but QB DeShaun Watson needs more help.
You can expect fireworks here. The total has gone over in four of Baltimore’s last five games when playing on the road against Houston. Go over once again.
