They won’t have two weeks to rest this time, however, with a quick turnaround just a few days later. The Ravens will return to primetime this Thursday when they take on the lowly Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins are coming off just their second win of the season defeating the one-win Houston Texans by a final score of 17-9.
In a game that most expected to be pretty lopsided, let’s take a look at what the betting odds are saying.

Ravens vs. Dolphins Prediction Week 10
This is a game the Ravens obviously should win. But the NFL has proven this season that no game, no matter how one-sided it might appear on paper, is a sure thing.
That’s especially true when it comes to the Ravens.
The Ravens have made a habit out of playing down to lesser competition this season which has caused them to play in a number of tight games. Even with a matchup against the Dolphins on tap, this one might not be any different.
At the time of writing, it’s unclear whether it’ll be Tua Tagovailoa or Jacoby Brissett starting at quarterback for Miami. But what is clear is that the Ravens will have one of the MVP frontrunners in Lamar Jackson under center.
This is a Dolphins team that plays right into Baltimore’s strengths, or rather their weaknesses. The Ravens have struggled to defend the run this season, but Miami is one of the worst rushing teams in the NFL.
Meanwhile, the Ravens have failed to generate a consistent pass rush, but their opponents have the worst offensive line in football.
This is a very favorable matchup for the Ravens, one that they should win handily. I have a feeling Baltimore puts together a complete performance, especially with players like Nick Boyle and Sammy Watkins set to return.
Final score prediction of 41-13.
