Bill Belichick made history last Sunday, when he notched his 300th win as head coach in the NFL. Belichick, however, is a man that’s likely to trade all those wins away for a Super Bowl. He can get to 301 this week when the Patriots pay the Baltimore Ravens a visit. Will the Pats continue their unbeaten streak? Or will the Ravens pull off an upset?

Betting on the New England Patriots (8-0)
Another week, another poor team crushed by the reigning Super Bowl champions. The Patriots won their eighth-straight game to open the 2019 NFL season last Sunday by destroying the Cleveland Browns in Foxboro, 27-13. The Patriots’ defense made Browns players look foolish, as epitomized by Cleveland turning the ball over three times in a row in the first quarter. Some would say that the Browns were really just cursed to pull off something like that, but that’s also the same as saying you have not watched New England this season. The Patriots are allowing the fewest points per game this season at 7.6 and second in the league in total defense with opponents garnering only 234.0 total yards per contest. The Pats also force 2.1 turnovers per game, which isn’t good news to the Ravens, who are 19th with a 2.26 interception thrown percentage.
The Patriots are 3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last four games in Baltimore.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (5-2)
The Ravens got a timely rest with a bye in Week 8, which should give them all the energy they need before facing arguably the best team in all of football right now. In their last game, the Ravens tore apart the Seattle Seahawks in a 30-16 win. Quarterback Lamar Jackson did Lamar Jackson things against the Seahawks, passing for 143 yards and rushing for 116 more to go with a rushing touchdown on 14 carries. Jackson will not be able to dance circles around New England’s defense like that, but he’s probably the most talented quarterback the Patriots will face thus far this season. The Ravens also have an improved defense after acquiring cornerback Marcus Peters via a trade. Peters made his presence felt right away when he returned an interception for a touchdown against the Seahawks. The Ravens could also be getting cornerback Jimmy Smith back from injury in time for the Patriots game.
The Ravens are 3-0 straight up (SU) in their last three home games.
The Ravens break the Pats’ undefeated streak, and win 24-21.
