Key Betting Trends

The Dolphins are winless at 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Ravens. That said, the road team is 5-2 against the number in the last seven meetings between these two teams and the underdog has cashed in seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams. Miami is also 12-3 at the betting window in its last 15 games played in Week 8.

Our Prediction

Joe Flacco has been brutal all season. He's coming off a 186-yard passing performance versus the Vikings in which he did throw for a touchdown, but also fumbled three times. Baltimore is having difficulties protecting Flacco, who was sacked five times in that loss at Minnesota. He averaged under five yards per pass attempt and the Ravens' passing game continues to struggle. Making matters worse, Mike Wallace (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) are both banged-up ahead of Thursday night's game with the Dolphins.

Miami can be had through the air but its run defense is stout. If Baltimore can't take advantage of the Dolphins' below-average secondary then points will be at a premium in this matchup. I like the under.
