Chargers vs. Ravens Prediction
Points shouldn't be a problem today when the Ravens host the Chargers at 1:00PM ET in Baltimore.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Ravens are 3.5-point home favorites versus the Chargers, while the over/under is currently sitting at 50.5 points.
San Diego is 2-5 overall and 2-5 against the spread, while Baltimore is just 1-6 straight up and 1-5 at the betting window. The Chargers were blown out as a 5.5-point home favorite versus the Raiders last Sunday while the Ravens lost but covered as a 10-point dog in Arizona.
The Chargers are a perfect over play, as they have the best passing game in the league in terms of passing yards per game (343.6), are 29th in the NFL in rushing yards per game (87.1), and are 27th in points allowed (28.3). So they can't run the ball, which forces them to put the ball in the air, and they can't stop anyone defensively. The Ravens haven't been good defensively either, allowing 385.4 total yards per game (25th in the NFL) and 26.9 points per contest (26th). The total is set high for a reason: Both teams should get into the 20s, with one team likely to score in the 30s to push the number over the total.
