The Ravens have been the underdogs in Las Vegas for the last two weeks, and both times the odds held true as both games resulted in a loss. Thankfully, this week Vegas has the Baltimore Ravens favored over the Tennessee Titans by a large margin. Let’s hope their trend of accuracy continues, at least for one more week.
The Ravens are favored by a pretty huge margin as well. The 9 1/2 point spread is second only to the Broncos and Raiders matchup that features a whopping 11 1/2 point spread. While the Broncos and an angry Peyton Manning are going to take out their frustrations from last week’s loss on the Raiders, we hope the Ravens are equally mad about their loss last week to the Steelers.

The Ravens didn’t take our advice last week and once again abandoned the run against a Steelers team giving up huge chunks of yards on the ground, but let’s hope they listen this week. In a game they shouldn’t trail in (fingers crossed), the Titan’s 28th ranked run defense is ripe for the picking. Especially when they employ a pretty decent (16th) pass defense.
Ultimately we think the Ravens will right the ship a little and pull off the win at home this week, and we also think that Vegas will be pretty close in their prediction. They were a little bit shy last week by only predicting a one point spread in a game the Steelers won by 20, but this week they aren’t showing much faith in the Titans, even though rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger looked pretty good in his debut. Don’t expect that trend to continue in the hostile environment of M&T Bank Stadium this Sunday.
