Ravens vs. Panthers Prediction and Odds for Week 11: Baker Mayfield’s revenge?
The Baltimore Ravens will be in search of their fourth straight victory when they take on the lowly Carolina Panthers in Week 11. It’s a game the Ravens should win on paper, but never overlook the potential trap game factor.
Former AFC North rival Baker Mayfield will get the start at quarterback for the Panthers following an injury to P.J. Walker. Mayfield was benched earlier in the season after a difficult stretch but will have another opportunity to prove himself this week.
That won’t be an easy task against a Ravens defense that has been firing on all cylinders in recent weeks. Baltimore has allowed 24 or fewer points in each of their last five games.
Can the Ravens extend their winning streak to four or will Mayfield and the Panthers pick up a big win in a tight-contested NFC South race? Let’s take a look at the latest betting odds.

Ravens vs. Panthers Prediction Week 11
The Ravens are 12.5-point favorites in this game for a reason. While the Panthers sit at 3-7 as one of the worst teams in the NFL, the Ravens have won three consecutive games and have looked pretty good in the process.
Lamar Jackson is 12-0 in the regular season when being a double-digit favorite, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, and he will look to extend that streak this Sunday.
If the Panthers are going to have any success, they’re going to need to find some semblance of consistency at the quarterback position. That could prove challenging against a Ravens pass rush that has come alive in recent weeks.
As long as the Ravens play their brand of defensive-focused football and Jackson does his part, they should win this game. The fact that they’re playing at home and could see the return of Mark Andrews only furthers the notion that Baltimore should emerge victorious.
Let’s call it a 32-17 Ravens victory. I don’t think this one ends up close by the time the fourth quarter rolls around.
