The Baltimore Ravens beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1 of the preseason, 20-19, but that shouldn’t surprise anyone.
John Harbaugh is no stranger to preseason dominance and he’ll take his win streak into Fedex Field for a preseason Week 2 matchup with the Washington Commanders.
Sam Howell’s Commanders are also 1-0 in the preseason after waiting out a bit of a rain delay to beat the Cleveland Browns at home last week.
Howell was impressive in the win and after officially being named the Week 1 starter let’s see if he can do it again. Here are the odds for this DMV preseason matchup.
Ravens vs. Commanders odds, spread and total
Ravens vs. Commanders prediction and pick
The Baltimore Ravens have now won 24 straight preseason games. They certainly got a scare last time out against the Eagles, but Philadelphia is one of the deepest teams in football so it’s understandable.
The Commanders do have some talent on their roster and with Sam Howell and Jacoby Brissett have two capable quarterbacks, but there’s no way we can bet against the streak.
The last time that the Ravens lost a preseason game was 2015 when they went 1-3 in preseason. For his career, John Harbaugh is 44-12 straight up in preseason games. That’s the second most preseason wins by an active coach and obviously the best winning percentage.
The Ravens don’t have the best stable of QBs behind Lamar Jackson and it’s not likely Jackson will play much this week. Josh Johnson and Tyler Huntley both completed eight passes and threw a touchdown last week, so they’re serviceable enough.
Really there’s nothing to think about with this game. You have to ride a win streak like this to the end.
