Hello, old friend. We meet again.

The Baltimore Ravens look to take down the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Ravens’ final home game of the season and win the series in 2022.

With Lamar Jackson reportedly out for the game, Tyler Huntley will step in as backup, and the Ravens’ offense will be equipped with two dominant running backs in J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards.

Will the Steelers let the Ravens run for 200 yards like last time? Probably not. This still aims to be a tough and grueling matchup with the highest of stakes for both sides: for the Steelers, holding on to a shot at the playoffs, and for the Ravens, topping the AFC North.

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

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.

Best Ravens Bets Week 17

Under 34.5 point total (+100)

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again. As long as Lamar Jackson remains out, take the under on the point totals in Ravens games.

The Ravens’ defense remains scarily stout against the run and in coverage, allowing just 45 total points in the last four games.

The offense won’t do much even if you poke them with a stick, but as long as that defensive unit stays in the zone, these next few matchups could turn out to be very low-scoring affairs.

Pundits remain split on who will win Sunday’s primetime game, yet one thing for near certain is that a quarterback showdown between Kenny Pickett and Tyler Huntley will not yield many touchdowns in the red zone. This is not Josh Allen vs. Patrick Mahomes. Look away.

The last meeting ended in a 16-14 Ravens victory. Expect a very similar narrative in Week 17.
