The Baltimore Ravens will square off against another division rival in Week 15, and this matchup proves much more difficult than the last.

Both Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley could be sidelined against the Cleveland Browns, which means either Anthony Brown or practice squad quarterback Brett Hundley will get the start on Saturday.

Obviously, that changes the odds a bit.

Will Baltimore’s defense stand tall against Deshaun Watson and the Browns’ dangerous wideouts? Or will Watson finally get his first win in 2022?

Let’s take a look at the best bets to make for this week’s crucial AFC North clash. All odds are courtesy of FanDuel.

Best Ravens Bets Week 15

Ravens spread (+2.5)

Screw Deshaun Watson — we’re betting that the Ravens will cover the spread in Week 15. Oddsmakers have the Browns as the favorites given the Ravens’ dicey quarterback situation, yet the Ravens have proven time and time again they can win ugly and they can win gritty.

This game should feature plenty of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards (especially given the weather), and the Ravens’ defense should be able to contain a less-than-impressive Deshaun Watson for most of the game.

Give me a Ravens win.

Under 36.5 point total (+108)

This game should be a low-scoring affair considering all the variables: wintry weather, the Ravens’ potentially starting a third-string quarterback, the Browns’ rusty quarterback, the Ravens’ stout defense.

Neither team poses as an offensive juggernaut, and Baltimore has scored just 16 points or fewer in each of their last three wins.

Assuming Anthony Brown and the Ravens take care of business, expect another punt-heavy matchup in Week 15.

Ravens’ defense will be under pressure for rest of the season. dark. Next

The Ravens have been owning their defensive brand of football as of late and should still come away with the dub in another hard-fought divisional battle.
