Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Chiefs are 6.5-point favorites to beat the Ravens. The total, meanwhile, sits at 51 points. As of this writing, 68% of the public betting tickets are on the Chiefs to cover the point spread.

Baltimore Ravens

Joe Flacco (hip) is questionable for Week 14 against the Chiefs. Even if Flacco suits up (a true question mark at this point), he'll simply backup Lamar Jackson in Arrowhead Sunday. The Ravens have altered their offense entirely with Jackson under center, leading the league in rush play rate over their past three games. Gus Edwards and Jackson himself remain the only starting options among Baltimore's roster in 10/12-team leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs

Eric Berry (heel) is out for Week 14 against the Ravens. Berry was trending towards playing Sunday, but the club will decidedly hold him out until its short turnaround divisional tilt against the Chargers Thursday night. The All-Pro's absence keeps Lamar Jackson as an enticing high-floor QB1 in Week 14.

NFL Betting Trends

Baltimore

The Ravens are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games played in the month of December.

Kansas City

The Chiefs are 11-3 against the number in their last 14 games versus conference opponents.

Prediction

The Ravens still don’t trust Lamar Jackson to throw much so this could be a mismatch if the Chiefs can slow down Baltimore’s rushing attack. Kansas City is 12-4-1 against the spread in its last 17 games overall, is 4-1 against the number in its last five games played in December and 14-3 ATS in its last 17 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in its previous game.
