Ravens vs. Packers Total Pick
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Baltimore is favored on the road, as the Ravens are getting odds of -2 points against the Packers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 38 points. Green Bay has won four of its last five meetings with the Ravens and the two have hit the under in their last two encounters. The public betting in this one has the Ravens getting 54 percent of the wagers on the road. Sunday’s game takes place from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin and will air live on CBS.
The Ravens are coming off their bye week. They suffered a 23-20 loss at Tennessee prior to that to fall to 4-5 on the season. Baltimore is 6-3 with the over, hitting it in five straight games. The Ravens are holding opponents to 19 points and 326.4 yards per game. Offensively, Baltimore is putting up 21.1 points and 301.2 yards per game. Joe Flacco has thrown for 1,551 yards and eight touchdowns, but also has 10 interceptions. The team is hoping to get a boost in the backfield with Danny Woodhead possibly returning from his IR stint this week after a hamstring injury. Alex Collins is the team’s leading rusher with 521 yards.
Green Bay is coming off a 23-16 win at Chicago last week to snap a three-game losing streak. The Packers are now 5-4 on the season and 6-3 with the over. Green Bay has hit the over in its last two games. On the season, Green Bay is averaging 22.7 points and 337.2 yards per game. However, the loss of Aaron Rodgers has impacted those numbers negatively. Brett Hundley has thrown for 701 yards and two touchdowns with four interceptions in place of Rodgers. Green Bay could be without their top two backs as Aaron Jones is out with a MCL sprain and Ty Montgomery is dealing with a rib injury. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 23 points and 368.7 yards per game. Nick Perry has seven sacks this year, but is also questionable to play with a foot injury.
Despite offensive troubles, Baltimore is still a really solid defensive team. This week they get to face a Green Bay team that has been held to an average of 16.7 points over its last four games. Hundley hasn’t been able to successfully move the ball and the Green Bay run game is thin entering Sunday. Though the total is set low, I see both offenses really struggling to move the ball and this game being decided by a handful of field goals.
