Bow down to the king. That was all the New England Patriots did all game long in the Titans’ 20-13 road win in Foxboro over Tom Brady and company Saturday night. Of course, we are referring to running back Derrick Henry, who treated the Patriots’ defense like it’s comprised by a bunch of six-year-old kids. Henry rushed for 182 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries or 5.4 yards per carry. That’s a strong message sent to the Ravens’ defense. Baltimore is allowing only 93.4 rushing yards per game, but that’s mostly because opponents don’t rush the ball often against them. Ravens opponents are rushing the ball just 21.2 times per game, but the yard-per carry gives more optimism for Henry and the Titans’ ground attack, as Baltimore finished the regular season 21st with 4.4 yards per carry allowed to opposing teams. On the flipside,the run-heavy Titans concluded the regular season third with 5.0 rushing yards per carry and seventh with 28.5 rushing attempts per contest.
The Titans are 4-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last four road games.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (14-2)
It’s time for Lamar Jackson to show that he’s just as deadly in the playoffs as he is in the regular season. Jackson, the frontrunner to win this season’s NFL Most Valuable Player award, finished the regular season with 3,127 passing yards and 36 touchdowns against only six interceptions. He’s playing like he’s back in Louisville again. On top of those numbers, Jackson also has 1,206 rushing yards and seven rushing scores while averaging 6.9 yards per carry. With a quarterback that dynamic, it’s not much of a surprise why the Ravens have the most productive offense in the league. Baltimore is putting up 33.2 points and 407.6 total yards per game, first and second overall during the regular season. Jackson is far from being the only top-tier talent on the team this season. In fact, the Ravens have four other players named into the first-team All-Pro, including mid-season acquisition cornerback Marcus Peters, who has made an immediate impact on the Ravens’ defense. Peters has two interceptions in six games in Ravens uniform. As a team, the Ravens are third defensively, with 17.6 points surrendered per contest.
The Ravens are 4-1 ATS in their last five games.
The Ravens win, 30-21.
