The New England Patriots are not in a good shape, as they could miss the playoffs for the first time in a long while. However, they are still in the playoff race, and a win over the Baltimore Ravens would show that the Patriots can win against elite teams without Tom Brady. But the Ravens are tough to take down, with Lamar Jackson heading the squad. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Baltimore Ravens vs New England Patriots Regular Season Week 10 Game on November 15, 2020
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro
When: Sunday, November 15, 2020, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (odds)
Regular Season Record: 6-2
The Ravens picked up the pieces from their loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8, as they handed the Indianapolis Colts a 24-10 loss on the road last Sunday. It was a special win for the Ravens, not only because they came through against one of the best defensive teams in the NFL, but also since they pulled it off despite missing the likes of Ronnie Stanley and All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey. The good news for the Ravens is that Humphrey is expected to return this weekend after recovering from COVID-19. Humphrey’s presence is a huge boost for the Ravens, who will be more equipped to take away the Patriots’ passing attack that’s really not impressive anyway. The Patriots are just 28th in the league with only 202.2 passing yards per game and 17th in pass completion percentage (65.83). Baltimore’s offense is also about to get a shot in the arm with the looming return of running back Mark Ingram, who’s missed the last two Ravens games due to an ankle injury. The Ravens are tops in the entire league with 170.1 rushing yards per game, so far this season.
The Ravens are 7-1-2 against the spread in their last 10 games away from home.
Betting on the New England Patriots (odds)
Regular Season Record: 2-5
The Patriots managed to avert a bundle of embarrassment and disaster last week by beating the New York Jets on the road, 30-27. Losing to the Jets would have been damning evidence that the Patriots are a total wreck with Tom Brady gone. Instead, the Patriots stopped the bleeding and won their first in five games. Cam Newton passed for 274 yards on 27-of-35 completions. While he wasn’t able to toss a touchdown, he was not intercepted and rushed for two touchdowns as well. Newton is the heart of this Patriots team, and expects him to make things happen in the pocket or on the run against Baltimore’s defense. Speaking of defense, New England will be looking to corner Lamar Jackson, who’s fronted by a weaker protection unit with Stanley out for the rest of the season. Jackson has been sacked nine times in Baltimore’s last three games and 21 overall this season. Baltimore’s offensive line is below league average in terms of adjusted sack rate, as it’s ranked 16th with a 6.4 percent clip.
The under is 7-3 in the Patriots’ last 10 games at home.
The Ravens win, 26-19.
