Not surprisingly, Ray Rice of Baltimore is a clear favorite to score the first touchdown of the game tonight. He has odds of 11/4, while the player with the next best odds of scoring first is Anquan Boldin and Maurice Jones-Drew, respectively. (The Field also has 6/1 odds.)
Baltimore receiver Torrey Smith is 9/1 to score the first touchdown while teammates Ed Dickson and Ricky Williams are both 10/1, respectively. The other mid-range long shots include Marcedes Lewis (12/1), Mike Thomas (12/1), Jason Hill (14/1) and Mike Sims-Walker (14/1), who recently re-signed with Jacksonville after spending the first six weeks with the winless Rams before being released.
The long shots to score the first touchdown in tonight’s game are Deji Karim, Dennis Pitta and Joe Flacco, who are all 20/1, respectively. Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert is also 30/1 to score the first touchdown and a wager on “No TD score in the game” will net bettors 50/1 odds.
Oddsmakers have installed the visiting Ravens as 10-point favorites over the host Jaguars tonight, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 38.5 points. Baltimore is 4-1 on the year and 4-1 against the spread, while Jacksonville is 1-5 overall and 2-4 against the number.
