Betting Preview for the Minnesota Vikings vs Baltimore Ravens Regular Season Week 9 Game on November 7, 2021
Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore
When: Sunday, November 7, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Minnesota Vikings (+5.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-4
Looking to recover from a 20-16 loss at the hands of the backup quarterback-led Dallas Cowboys at home in Week 8 are the Vikings. Mike Zimmer’s team sputtered on both ends of the field in that game, coming up with just 278 total yards while allowing Cooper Rush and company to rack up 419. That’s not a good look on a team that’s about to face the ever-potent Baltimore Ravens. However, the Ravens had just been ripped in its last game and could be a bit rusty coming into Week 9 after taking a bye in Week 8. And despite their loss to the Cowboys, the Vikings with Kirk Cousins under center are capable of putting together a strong offensive performance; they are seventh in the NFL in total offense and 11th in red-zone touchdown scoring percentage.
The Vikings are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games in Week 9.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (-5.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-2
The Ravens had their five-game win streak snapped by the Cincinnati Bengals in a 41-17 home loss in Week 7. The manner in how Baltimore got outplayed by the Bengals was an alarming sight for the Bengals, which defeated the Los Angeles Chargers, 34-6, at home a week prior. Nevertheless, as long as Lamar Jackson is quarterbacking the Ravens, this team will be a threat to anyone. The Ravens are eighth in the league with 26.7 points per game and third in total offense with 417.6 total yards per contest. Cooper Rush just sliced through the Vikings’ defense for 325 passing yards and two touchdowns. What’s going to stop people from believing that Jackson can inflict as much damage — if not more — to that Minnesota stop unit?
The Ravens are 6-0 against the spread in their last six home games against a team with a losing road record.
The Ravens win, 27-24.
