These are my key factors for the game between the NY Jets and Baltimore Ravens:
The Ravens are 11-2 and the Jets are 5-8.
The Ravens have won nine straight.
The Ravens defeated the Bills 24-17 on Sunday.
The Jets are coming in after beating the Dolphins 22-21.
The Ravens are the favorite at -16.5.
The over/under total is 44.5.
The money line is Ravens -910 and Jets +700.
The Ravens are the home team.
Lamar Jackson is listed as probable. Jackson is presently the leading candidate for league MVP. Sam Darnold is playing better over the last 3 games. He has 4 TDs and 1 interception during that period. The Ravens have the NFL top scoring offense along with a top 5 ranked scoring defense.
The prop bet that will make this game exciting is the match between Mark Ingram and Le’Veon Bell. Their combined rushing and passing yardage is set at 81.5 for Bell and 71.5 for Ingram. I see both exceeding the projected numbers.
I have a lean toward the Ravens with the money line. The Jets will hang around and the thought of Jackson not at full strength makes 16.5 a bit too high for me to lay. If the money line is too high for your bankroll, then look at the total. TNF games have been typically low scoring. I am 17-9 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday.
