Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots Betting – NFL Week 10, 2020
The Baltimore Ravens will square off against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, as the 2020 NFL season continues with Week 10 matchups on Sunday, November 15.
These two AFC foes meet for the second straight season, and the Ravens will search for their second straight victory after thrashing off the Pats 37-20 at home last November.
Both teams were victorious in Week 9, promising a great battle in this one, so here’s my best Ravens vs. Patriots betting pick along with the latest odds, team news, and key betting tips.
Ravens vs. Patriots Odds
The Ravens are listed as firm favorites with their moneyline odds at -315. The Patriots have played in a poor form since Week 4, and the bookies don’t believe they stand a chance against the second-best team in the AFC North.
Baltimore Ravens Form
The 6-2 Ravens have had some ups and downs this term. After a 28-24 defeat to the Steelers in Week 8, Baltimore defeated the Indianapolis Colts 24-10 as 1-point road underdogs this past Sunday.
The Ravens stepped up defensively and allowed zero second-half points to the Colts while overcoming a 10-7 halftime deficit. Lamar Jackson completed 19 of his 23 passing attempts for 170 yards and ran 13 times for 58 yards and a TD.
Baltimore racked up only 266 total yards, but Chuck Clark returned fumble in the first half, and Marcus Peters picked off Philip Rivers once at the start of the third quarter.
The Ravens are leading the NFL in points allowed per game (17.8). Their run D is eighth (101.8), while the Ravens’ passing defense is the 10th-best in the league (223.1). Baltimore is scoring 28.4 points per contest (8th in the NFL) on 170.1 rushing yards (1st) and 176.9 passing yards (31st).
New England Patriots Form
The Patriots are coming off a 30-27 road victory over the winless New York Jets this past Monday, snapping a four-game losing streak. It was another terrible performance by New England, especially on the defensive end, as they allowed a bunch of points to the most inefficient team in the league.
Cam Newton led the way for the Pats with two touchdowns on his own. He threw for 274 yards, while Jakobi Meyers had 12 receptions for 169 yards. The Pats’ ground game worked well, as they racked up 159 rushing yards. Damien Harris had another good game, recording 14 totes for 71 yards.
The Patriots are scoring only 20.8 points per game (28th in the NFL) on 159.6 rushing yards (4th) and 202.3 passing yards (28th). They are yielding 24.3 points in a return (12th) on 131.0 rushing yards (25th) and 221.9 passing yards (9th).
Ravens vs. Patriots Pick
Baltimore Ravens -6.5-125
I’m not going to overthink this one. The Patriots are poor on both sides of the ball. Their offensive line will have a tall task to cope with the Ravens’ aggressive defense, while the Pats’ run D should be destroyed by Baltimore’s ground game.
Therefore, I’m pretty sure the Ravens will win this clash, and I hope they’ll do it by a touchdown, at least.
