Despite Jared Goff looking competent at the quarterback position, there are not nearly enough weapons for the Lions to keep up with a team like the Lions. Despite putting together a rather impressive first half against the Green Bay Packers, they completely fell apart in the second half. Even if the Lions come out of the gates hot against the Ravens, they have shown in every game this season that they are incapable of putting a full game of quality football together.

Baltimore Ravens: Continuing Their Hot Streak

The Baltimore Ravens are coming off of an incredible victory against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was a game that came down to the wire and the Ravens edged out a victory. This was an incredible bounce back after another game that came down to the wire against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Ravens were hitting on all cylinders against Chiefs on both sides of the ball. Although giving up 35 points is typically not something to be commended for, against the Chiefs, this is still impressive. Along with this, the Ravens forced Patrick Mahomes to throw his first career interception in the month of September.

Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This NFL Game

This should be an easy victory for the Ravens. The Lions are one of the worst teams in the entire NFL this season. However, there is a slight red flag with picking the Ravens to cover such a large spread.

Up to this point of the year, the Ravens have only played to the level of their opponent. While there is a small chance this continues in week three, the chance is still there. The Ravens have looked incredible on the offensive side of the ball so far this year.

If they are to cover a 10.5 point spread, it is almost a lock that the total will be over 49.5 points if the Ravens can cover the spread.
