Ravens vs Rams Best Bet

On Sunday, the AFC North-leading Ravens host the playoff-hopeful Los Angeles Rams. The weather is supposed to consist of high wind gusts and rain, so this game could get ugly from that standpoint very quickly. Which team has the edge in this inter-conference showdown? Let’s dive into who has the edge in the Ravens vs Rams game on Sunday.

Ravens vs Rams – Tech Angle

The Rams are 6-6 SU and 6-5-1 ATS. The Ravens are 9-3 SU and 8-4 ATS. Baltimore is 5-3 SU and 4-3-1 ATS in their L8 games against the Rams. The total in those games was split 4-4. The Rams are 0-4-1 ATS in their L5 games against Baltimore and 1-4 SU in those games. LA is 3-10 SU in their L13 road games. Baltimore is 6-1 SU in their L7 games and 10-4 ATS in their L14 games.

The Rams have really struggled on the road, and it does not help that this road game will be in bad conditions. The Ravens have been a wagon as of late with straight-up and ATS wins.

Ravens vs Rams – Analysis

The Rams hosted Joe Flacco and the Browns on Sunday, and they were able to take advantage of the rusty veteran QB. The Browns got within one point with 8:49 to go in the fourth quarter, but the Rams were able to put up two scores and a safety in the final 8 minutes to route the Browns 36-19 at home. This defense did not do a great job with Flacco and Co. all day, but they made the necessary plays in the fourth quarter to secure a comfortable win.

The Ravens had a bye this past week. The week before, the Ravens beat the Chargers 20-10 on Sunday Night. It was not a dominating performance for Lamar and the Ravens by any means, but they did enough to win the game despite a few turnovers and not scoring points on others.

This team is well rested and will be hosting a Rams team at 1:00 ET coming across the country. Generally, this is a terrible spot for West Coast teams. Also, matchup-wise, it is a bad spot for the Rams. Baltimore plays a lot of man coverage, and Matt Stafford has struggled with man coverage this season.

Baltimore should also be able to get a lot of pressure on Stafford, which has also been hard for the Rams offense to overcome this season. Harbaugh is 12-3 SU and 9-6 ATS in his head coaching career. Asking this team to cover seven is steep, so we can say this price is fair, but the Ravens are an amazing teaser leg this weekend.

Especially with the elements, it is tough for any one team to pull away. Also, the Ravens’ run defense has been susceptible to big plays, and the Rams’ run offense is great. If Sean McVay can scheme up an opening drive score, with the weather, it will be hard for the Ravens to come back and still win by two scores.

Ravens vs Rams – Prediction

While asking Baltimore to cover two scores is asking for a lot, they should win this game. The Ravens have conceivable advantages on defense, and if the weather is as bad as predicted, Los Angeles would be affected more than the Ravens. With that being said, the Rams have a good enough offense to stay in almost every game. So, we think the Ravens in a teaser is the best way to bet this game. They fit the advantage teaser mold, and they should come out with a win,
