The Baltimore Ravens are aching to get back on the field after suffering their first loss of the season at the hands of the reigning Super Bowl champions. Up next for them is a date with the Washington Football Team, which is looking to end a two-game slump. Check out our preview of this game below
Betting Preview for the Baltimore Ravens vs Washington Football Team Regular Season Week 4 Game on October 4, 2020
Where: FedEx Field
When: Sunday, October 4, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (-13)
Regular Season Record: 2-1
The bad news for the Ravens is that 0-3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, who beat them last Monday at home, 34-20. The good news for them is that they will not be facing Patrick Mahomes next week. Jackson looked human in the loss to the Chiefs, passing for just 97 yards and a touchdown on 15-of-28 completions. Jackson struggled mightily in the passing game, especially in the first half. He could have more success passing the ball in Week 4 against Washington, but his rushing seems to project better results. Washington just got carved last week on the ground by the Cleveland Browns for 158 yards and a couple of touchdowns. The Ravens are fourth in the league in rush play percentage (50.0) and fifth in rushing yards with 166.3 per game. Facing the still-green Dwayne Haskins should also give fewer problems for the Chiefs than Mahomes did last Monday. For one, Washington is last in the NFL in pass completion percentage (56.44).
The Ravens are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Washington Football Team (+14)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
There are no obvious signs of a looming quarterback switch in Washington, but Haskins has to start showing consistent signs of improvement. In Washington’s 34-20 road loss to the Browns, Haskins passed for 223 yards and two touchdowns but got wrecked with three interceptions. Despite the struggles of Haskins, wide receiver Terry McLaurin continues to shine. McLaurin had 83 receiving yards on just four catches against the Browns. On the season, McLaurin has 269 receiving yards on just 16 receptions to go along with a touchdown. Haskins has to keep throwing McLaurin the ball regardless of the quality of the opposing defense. If Haskins can be more accurate, that would give Washington a chance to upset Baltimore, which has a defense that’s not been impressing against the pass. Baltimore is just 26th in the league with 268 passing yards allowed per game. Washington is hopeful that rookie pass rusher Chase Young will be available to bother Jackson in the pocket. Young exited the Browns game with a groin injury and his status is still up in the air as of this writing.
The over is 3-0 in Washington’s last three games at home.
The Ravens win, 30-20.
