Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Cardinals placed RT Marcus Gilbert on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season. It's the last thing the Cardinals' shaky offensive line needed, though Gilbert appeared in only five games for the Steelers last season thanks to injury/suspension before the Cardinals acquired him for a sixth-round pick. Ex-Bills starter Jordan Mills was signed on Tuesday and will probably slide directly into Gilbert's spot. Waiver claim Justin Murray did not fare well during Gilbert's Week 1 absence.

Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Spin

Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-20 passes for 324 yards and five touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 1 win over Miami. The Ravens had a field day in Miami, with Jackson leading the way. Two of Jackson's touchdowns were to Marquise Brown, including an 83-yard bomb. Jackson only rushed three times for six yards, but this was as accurate as he's looked as a pro. There's a lot of positives takeaways in this one, though it came against a tanking Dolphins team. Jackson is a must-start for another plus matchup with the Cardinals in Week 2.

NFL Betting Trends

Arizona

The over is 5-2 in the Cardinals’ last seven road games.

Baltimore

The under is 7-3 in the Ravens’ last 10 games versus an opponent with a losing record.

Prediction

It’s unlikely the Ravens drop another 59 points this week but that doesn’t mean Jackson and Co. can’t rack up enough scores to help contribute to the over. Jackson is a better passer than people give him credit for and while the Dolphins are horrendous defensively, the Cardinals are exactly world beaters on that side of the ball. Meanwhile, Kyler Murray and Arizona did nothing offensively until the fourth quarter against Detroit but the team’s late comeback should give the Cardinals plenty of confidence heading into this week.

NFL Week 2 Prediction: Cardinals/Ravens OVER 46
