These are my key numbers to look at for the game tonight between Baltimore and Los Angeles:
Ravens are 8-2.
Rams are 6-4.
The Ravens are coming in after destroying the Texans by a score of 41-7.
Rams defeated the Bears 17-7.
Ravens are the favorite at -3.5.
The over/under total is 47.5.
The money line is Ravens -196 and Rams +168.
The Rams are the home team.
Colts have won 6 straight games.
The Ravens are led by Lamar Jackson. Jackson is the front runner for the NFL MVP as of this post.
The Rams QB Jared Goff is having a season plagued with turnovers. He has thrown 10 interceptions and lost 9 fumbles this year.
Todd Gurley had an outstanding game against the Bears defense that resulted in 14 carries for 97 yards.
The prop bets that will make things interesting involve Gurley and Goff. Gurley rushing yardage is set at 62.5. That number seems low.The price is -112 so it has value. Take him over. Goff throwing an interception is set at -176 for yes and +138 for no. I see at least 1 interception from him.
I have a lean toward the Ravens. They are the better team and the more explosive. Give the the 3.5 as they control the Rams. I am 13-8 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday.
