Baltimore Ravens

Joe Flacco completed 23-of-39 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' 24-23, Week 7 loss to the Saints. A standard day at Flacco's 2018 office. Flacco has not surpassed two scores since Week 1. Today's touchdowns went to Mark Andrews and John Brown. Flacco lost another potential score when Lamar Jackson cashed in a gadget look. Flacco continues to seem thrilled every time he is split out wide for Jackson to run a play. The Ravens are headed to Charlotte for Week 8.

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton completed 25-of-39 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns and rushed seven times for 49 yards in the Panthers' Week 7 upset win over Philadelphia. Newton shook off a dreadful first half to complete 21-of-30 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns in the final two quarters, finding Devin Funchess for an 18-yard score and Greg Olsen for the game winner at the goal line as Carolina overcame a 17-0 deficit for the 21-17 victory. Newton's second-half performance was truly heroic, particularly a fourth-down completion to Torrey Smith for 35 yards. Newton gets a tougher Week 8 matchup against Baltimore, but he has been a high-floor, high-ceiling fantasy quarterback all year regardless of opponents.

NFL Betting Trends

Baltimore

The under is 4-0 in the Ravens’ last four games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

Carolina

The over is 6-1 in the Panthers’ last seven games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous contest.

Prediction

The Panthers were shut out in the first half last week in Philadelphia before rallying and coming alive in the final two quarters. The Ravens have one of the best defenses in the league, but the Panthers have more than enough offensive weapons to get into the end zone. That’s also true for Baltimore, which upgraded its receiver corps this offseason and has a true vertical threat in John Brown. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams.
