The Baltimore Ravens will travel to East Rutherford in Week 6 as they look to score consecutive victories for the first time this season, this time on the road against the New York Giants.

The Giants are fresh off a stunning upset of the Green Bay Packers in Week 5. They remain one of the biggest surprises of what has been a wacky NFL season and they’re not a team that should be overlooked.

As for the Ravens, they’re coming off a thrilling last-second victory over the Cincinnati Bengals a week ago in a game that was the biggest of the season to that point.

Let’s take a look at some of the best bets to make in this week’s game. All odds are courtesy of FanDuel.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.

Best Ravens Bets Week 6

Mark Andrews anytime touchdown scorer (+100)

We’ve gone with this bet every week so far this year, and it’s paid off. Mark Andrews has four touchdowns through five weeks this season and has found the end zone in three of his last four games.

I’d expect that to continue against a Giants team that has been susceptible to tight ends this season. Not only that, but with Rashod Bateman out again, Andrews will once again be the guy in Baltimore.

Expect Lamar Jackson to target Andrews whenever the Ravens find their way into the end zone. If you’re betting on any Ravens player finding paydirt in Week 6, it should be Andrews.

Devin Duvernay OVER 40.5 receiving yards (-113)

Devin Duvernay has maximized his opportunities this season and really carved out a nice role in the Ravens’ offense. The former third-round pick is second on the team behind Andrews in both catches and touchdowns.

And with Bateman sidelined for another week, Duvernay enters the game as the Ravens’ de facto WR1. He made the most of his snaps last week finishing with five catches (on seven targets) for 54 yards.

Duvernay has fallen short of 40 yards in a game just once this season. It’s hard to believe he does so again this week with Bateman not playing. Bet the over this week for sure.

J.K. Dobbins OVER 48.5 rushing yards (-113)

Now, this one is a little projection. J.K. Dobbins has been used sparingly since his return a few weeks ago. The former second-round pick has finished with eight or fewer carries in two of his first three games, but he is coming off his most efficient game of the season.

Dobbins finished with 44 yards on just eight carries a week ago and wasn’t targeted a single time in the passing game. There have been signs that his lack of usage isn’t going over too well either.

I think this is the week the Ravens finally let Dobbins be the workhorse back for this offense. That doesn’t mean he’s going to get 20 carries, but it does mean I expect a larger workload, somewhere in the range of 15 total touches.

Next. Brian Burns and 5 Panthers stars the Ravens could trade for. dark

Against a Giants defense allowing 5.0 yards per carry this season, this could be the game Dobbins break out. If so, he should easily surpass his over this week.
