Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos Best Bets for Week 13
The Baltimore Ravens will look to score a much-needed bounce-back victory when they play host to the Denver Broncos in Week 13. Baltimore is fresh off a disastrous fourth-quarter collapse that saw the team blow another double-digit lead, this time against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Ravens enter this week facing what feels like a must-win game. This is a Broncos team that has lost seven of their last eight games and has scored over 20 points just twice this season.
Still, Denver has enough talent to make the Ravens think twice. After last week’s disappointing defeat, they can ill afford another letdown, especially with the Cincinnati Bengals right on their tails in the division race.
Let’s take a look at some of the best bets you can make for Sunday’s matchup. All odds are courtesy of FanDuel.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
Best Ravens Bets Week 13
Ravens moneyline (-450)
By all accounts, the Ravens should win this game. They’re the much more talented team and their opponents enter the week with more players on the injured reserve than any other organization in football.
This Broncos team is beaten and battered and has dealt with offensive ineptitude in every facet. From their struggling offensive line to Russell Wilson’s regression to their coaching malpractice, the Broncos are, in many ways, a mess.
The Ravens have shown the ability to dominate teams this season, they’ve just struggled to put away their opposition. I think that changes this week.
Bet the Ravens moneyline with confidence.
Mark Andrews OVER 58.5 receiving yards (-113)
Despite their offensive incompetence, the Broncos boast one of the best defenses in football complete with a superb secondary and some talented front-seven players.
The Ravens might not put up 30+ points this week, but it still feels safe to assume that Mark Andrews could find some success. This Broncos’ defense is excellent, but they’ve struggled at times against tight ends.
The likes of Austin Hooper, Evan Engram, and Donald Parham have all found success against the Broncos this season which bodes well for Andrews’ chances in Week 13.
Andrews is due for a big game having not topped 70 yards since Week 6. That very well could happen this week.
Gus Edwards any time touchdown scorer (+120)
Gus Edwards returned in Week 12 and the Ravens made it abundantly clear that this is his backfield. The former undrafted free agent carried the ball 16 times as compared to the three combined between Kenyan Drake and Justice Hill.
Edwards is going to get the vast majority of touches this week, and that includes red-zone touches where he’s found plenty of success.
The 27-year-old has scored three touchdowns in just three games played this year including one a week ago. If the Ravens find themselves close to the goal line, expect Edwards to get the ball.
The Ravens have struggled to convert in the red zone which makes any any-time touchdown scorer a bit of a risk, but Edwards is your safest bet.
