Jaguars vs. Ravens Free Pick
A pair of 2-6 teams will square off in Baltimore today when the Ravens host the Jaguars at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Ravens opened as 6.5-point home favorites but the line has dropped to 5. The total, meanwhile, opened at 48 before dropping to 47.5.
The Jaguars enter play with a 2-6 record but are 4-4 against the spread after covering last Sunday versus the Jets in East Rutherford. As for the Ravens, they're also 2-6 straight up but are a horrendous 1-6 at the betting window this season.
The Ravens aren't good enough this season to be laying 5.5 points against any time, even a 2-6 Jacksonville squad. The Jaguars have struggled to stop opponents passing games this season but they rank sixth against the run while allowing 94.2 yards per game. Baltimore has to move the ball on the ground because Steve Smith is out for the season and there's no effective weapons for Joe Flacco in the passing game. That suits Jacksonville in this matchup. Also, thanks to Allen Hurns, Allen Robsinon and Blake Bortles, the Jaguars have at least been average offensively this year. Take the points with a Jacksonville squad that is 6-2 against the spread in its last eight games following a loss.
