Patriots vs. Ravens Week 9 Prediction

Patriots vs. Ravens, 11/3/19 NFL Week 9 Betting Predictions

The Ravens opened as 4-point home underdogs for their Sunday Night Football matchup with the Patriots but are now catching only a field goal. Is that enough points to back Baltimore tonight or is New England the best play for bettors?

New England Patriots Fantasy Spin

James White (toe) is questionable for the Patriots' Week 9 matchup against the Ravens. White wasn't listed on the injury report until Friday. Damien Harris was a healthy scratch with Burkhead back in action last week for the first time since Week 4. The Patriots' backfield utilized the following rotation during their 27-13 win over the Browns: Sony Michel (41% snaps), White (41%), Burkhead (19%) and Brandon Bolen (4%). Continue to fire up Michel as a weekly RB2 as the primary touchdown scorer in the league's highest-scoring offense. White is at the most risk of losing significant pass-game work to Burkhead, as his six-touch performance last week was largely saved by a 59-yard sprint off a well-designed screen.

Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Spin

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed that CB Jimmy Smith (knee) will play Sunday. The entire Patriots passing game has a sneaky tough matchup this week against the Ravens, who will welcome back their long-time No. 1 CB first time since Week 1. Marlon Humphrey has traveled with opposing No. 1 WRs with plenty of success this season, but he spent 82% of his snaps as the defense's slot CB in week 7 in their first game with Marcus Peters. We're guessing the Ravens keep their CBs stationary for the time being now that they don't have a glaring weakness (yet) among their starting trio.

New England

The Patriots have covered the spread in five of their last six games in November and are 7-2 against the number in their last nine conference games as well.

Baltimore

The Ravens are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall and are winless at the betting window in their last six home games.

NFL Week 9 Prediction

The road team is 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall and I like the Patriots to make it 7-1-1 by the end of the night. This simply isn’t enough points to entice me to take the Ravens as a home dog. Do I think Lamar Jackson is capable of giving New England’s outstanding defense a stiff test? Of course, especially when you consider he’s the best signal-caller that the Patriots will face to this point in the season and it’s not even close. That said, we’re getting Tom Brady in November in a big primetime matchup and only have to lay a field goal. Enough said.
