Bears vs. Ravens Prediction

NFL Week 6 Predictions: Ravens a smart bet to cover vs. Bears? 10/15/17

Are the Ravens a smart bet to cover the spread versus the Bears today at 1:00PM ET in Baltimore?

The Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Ravens are 6.5-point home favorites versus the Bears, who also opened with 6.5-point odds as an underdog. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 40 but was bet down to 38.5 at the majority of online sports books.

Chicago Bears: The Bears are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus a team with a winning record and have cashed in eight of their last 11 games coming off a loss. That said, they’re 2-8 at the betting window in their last 10 road games, are 5-16 against the spread in their last 20 games played in Week 6, and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six home games versus a team with a losing road record, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven home games, and are 7-3 at the betting window in their last 10 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous contest. They’re also 5-16-1 against the spread in their last 22 games in October. As of this writing, 59% of the betting public is backing the Ravens.

Who Covers: Rookie Mitchell Trubisky looked okay on Monday night against the Vikings but his inexperience showed late in the game when he telegraphed a pass that was intercepted by Minnesota safety Harrison Smith. He draws another tough matchup on Sunday when he faces a Baltimore defense that ranks 16th in yards allowed, ninth in passing yards allowed, and ninth in points allowed per game (19.4). Baltimore has struggled at times against the run this season but if the Ravens can slow down Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen then they’ll be fine. Plus, Baltimore finally had a good performance offensively last Sunday, as Joe Flacco enjoyed his first interception-free game. (Check out our advanced matchup report here.)
