Public Betting Information
Public bettors are hammering the road team in this matchup tonight. Of the wagers currently placed on tonight's game, 79% are on Baltimore and the two-and-a-half points.
OUR PREDICTION: Preseason or not, the Ravens are humming without starting quarterback Joe Flacco. They opened their preseason with a 20-point win over the Redskins and then followed up that performance with a 24-point victory over the Dolphins in Miami. Last week they were held to just 13 points against Buffalo, but they improved to 13-9. Meanwhile, the Saints' offense has scuffled behind their backup quarterbacks. I like Baltimore with the points.
