Seeing the New England Patriots lose last Sunday must have further invigorated the Baltimore Ravens (+250 to win Super Bowl 54), who expanded their lead atop the AFC with a win in Week 14. Up ahead for the Ravens is a seemingly easy matchup against the New York Jets, though, Adam Gase’s men are coming off a win, so there’s some momentum on their side.

Betting on the New York Jets (5-8)
Even without running back Le’Veon Bell, the Jets still managed to snare their fifth win of the season when they defeated the lowly Miami Dolphins at home in Week 14, 22-21. Bell was declared out prior to the game due to an illness, which doesn’t sound anything serious enough to keep him sidelined for more at least another game so expect the tailback to be back on the field in Week 15. Quarterback Sam Darnold went 20 for 36 for 270 yards and a pair of touchdowns and an interception against the Dolphins, while running back Bilal Powell paced the team with 74 rushing yards on 19 carries. Meanwhile, wide receiver Robby Anderson continues to play well despite the struggles of the Jets. Anderson had 116 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches against the Dolphins. Anderson now has back-to-back games of at least 101 receiving yards while also having three touchdowns over the last three games.
The Jets are 3-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (11-2)
In a battle between two teams with young and mobile quarterbacks, it was Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens who topped Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills on the road last Sunday, 24-17. Jackson passed for 145 yards and three touchdowns against an interception while completing 16 of 25 throws. Running back Mark Ingram led the team with 50 rushing yards on 15 carries. The Ravens’ run game was actually contained by the Bills, as Baltimore averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, but the team should come up with a more efficient ground attack in Week 15 against the Jets’ defense that is 23rd in the NFL with 4.5 yards allowed per carry. Baltimore’s defense must also be looking forward to taking a shot at that soft Jets’ offensive line, which has given up the fourth-most sacks in the NFL. The Ravens sacked Allen last Sunday six times, resulting in 41 lost yards for the Bills.
The Ravens are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games.
The Ravens win, 30-13.
