Ravens-Falcons Preview

Two teams in hopes of making consecutive playoff appearances square off at the Georgia Dome at 7:30PM ET on Thursday night as the Atlanta Falcons host the Baltimore Ravens.

Bet Ravens at Falcons

The Ravens have been perfect so far this preseason, going 3-0 in their first three weeks. Second year quarterback Joe Flacco has been impressive and the defense has hardly missed a step despite losing defensive coordinator Rex Ryan and starters Bart Scott and Jim Leonhard to the Jets in the offseason.

The Falcons come into this game 2-1, but easily good have been 3-0 if they had hung onto a late lead against the Lions in the opener. That said, Atlanta had a last-second win last week against the Chargers, a game in which they could have easily lost.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Falcons 3-point home favorites over the Ravens on Thursday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 35.5.

The trends favor the Falcons in this matchup, as Atlanta is 2-0 against the spread versus Baltimore over the last three seasons and 29-14 ATS in games played on turf since 1993.

The final preseason game is always incredibly hard to predict because teams usually don’t reveal how long starters will play for. That said, the Falcons’ defense has been atrocious so far in preseason and the Ravens have quality backups. We suggest taking the over 35.5 in this game.

NFL Preseason Week 4: Ravens at Falcons Odds & Over/Under Totals:

Baltimore Ravens +3 Over 35.5

Atlanta Falcons –3 Under 35.5
