The Denver Broncos host Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens this coming weekend. Denver is gunning for their fourth win in a row to start the season, but that’s going to be easier said than done against these Ravens, who are carrying big momentum as well. In any case, this game is going to be a wild ride. Check out our preview of this contest below.

TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (odds)
Regular Season Record: 2-1
Justin Tucker needed to set an NFL record in order to deliver a win for the Ravens and that’s what he absolutely did in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions, as he drilled a 66-yard field goal to give Baltimore a 19-17 road win in Motor City. Lamar Jackson, meanwhile, finished with 287 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception on 16/31 completions. He also led the team on the ground with 58 rushing yards on seven carries. Jackson will have to do a whole lot of the heavy lifting for the Ravens, especially this week on the road against the stingy defense of the Broncos. If there’s a quarterback who can give Denver’s stop unit plenty of problems, that’s got to be Jackson, who is at the forefront of Baltimore’s defense that is averaging 27.3 points and 424.7 total yards per game, 11th and fourth in the NFL, so far this season. And with Tucker, the field is always shorter than most teams for the Ravens.
The Ravens are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (odds)
Regular Season Record: 3-0
The Broncos are gearing up for their first true test of the season. This game against the Ravens will likely show whether Denver’s 3-0 start was more of a product of it picking on lightweights than it being a legitimately good team with Teddy Bridgewater under center. So far, the Broncos have defeated the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the New York Jets in the first three weeks of the season. All those teams are 0-3 entering Week 4. Still, it can’t be denied that the Broncos are looking better with Bridgewater, who passed for 235 yards with no touchdowns and zero interceptions on a crisp 19/25 completions in a 26-0 home win over the hapless Jets last Sunday. The Broncos’ defense is allowing just 8.7 points and 221.7 total yards per game. They’re unlikely to keep the Broncos below 10 points, but Von Miller and company will still be a problem for Baltimore. Baltimore has allowed eight sacks in its last three games.
The Broncos are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall.
The Ravens win, 26-23.
