Betting on the Indianapolis Colts (+6.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-3
The Colts finally broke out of their winless slump and recorded their first win of the season by trouncing the Miami Dolphins on the road last Sunday, 27-17. Indianapolis leaned on its defense to get past the Fins. The Colts limited Miami to only 203 total yards and forced the Dolphins to commit two turnovers. They also sacked Jacoby Brissett three times, resulting in a loss of 31 yards for Miami. Baltimore’s offense is obviously a different beast than the Dolphins’ lethargic attack, but don’t count the Colts’ chances of containing the Ravens. The Colts are 11th in the NFL with a 6.78 defensive sack percentage. They are also fourth in the league with 2.0 takeaways per game. Carson Wentz could also build on a solid performance in the Miami game in which he went 24/32 for 228 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions. There’s also running back Jonathan Taylor who collected 103 rushing yards and a TD on 16 carries.
The Colts are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight road games.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (-6.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-1
Lamar Jackson and the Ravens picked up their third win in a row by taking down the Denver Broncos on the road in Week 4, 23-7. The Ravens exposed the Broncos’ defense, with Jackson passing for 316 yards and a touchdown without an interception on 22/37 completions. Baltimore is still a run-heavy team, but the win over the Broncos showed that Jackson can also get it done with his arm even against a stout defense. The Ravens enter Week 5 eighth in the NFL with 26.2 points per game and fourth with 420.0 total yards per contest. Defensively, the Ravens can handle Indianapolis’ attack that is third-worst in the NFL with a 40 percent red-zone touchdown scoring rate. On the flip side, the Ravens are 11th overall with just 23.0 points allowed per contest. They even improved over their last two games during which they gave up just 23 points total.
The Ravens are 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games.
The Ravens win, 33-24.
