Baltimore Ravens vs. Washington Football Team Betting – NFL, October 4, 2020
It was all smiles in the nation’s capital after a Week 1 comeback against the Eagles. A couple of blowout losses later and the Washington Football Team appears to be in shambles.
As the great Dennis Green famously once said, “They are who we thought they were.”
On that note, are the Ravens as good as we initially thought? They got obliterated by Kansas City on MNF and now face a short week to get back on track.
This week 4 betting preview includes a Ravens vs. Washington pick, but let’s started by glancing at the odds.
Ravens vs. Washington Odds
It’s rare that you’ll see a team lose by a couple of touchdowns and be installed as a 13-point favorite the following week. Then again, let’s not forget how sharp Baltimore looked in their first two outings trouncing the Browns and the Texans.
And let’s not lose sight of the fact that Washington is coming off back-to-back losses of at least 14 points.
Consider that no fans are allowed in the stadium. Given that FedExField is just a short 35-minute commute from Baltimore, we can hardly call this one a “road” test for John Harbaugh’s squad.
What to Expect
Talk about an angry and motivated bunch, the Ravens can’t wait to take the field on Sunday in D.C. Lamar Jackson is looking to redeem is pedestrian-like performance while Washington is dealing with a slew of significant injuries.
Chase Young missed week 3 with a groin injury and is unlikely to suit up against Baltimore. Defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis will most definitely be out as he recovers from a torn biceps. If that’s not enough, Washington’s best offensive lineman, Brandon Scherff, is on track to miss Sunday’s contest as well.
The Football Team was already going to be fighting an uphill battle based on the matchup alone. Being that they’re banged up in the trenches and the Ravens will be seething, this thing could get out of control quickly.
Ravens vs. Washington Pick
Too much has to go right to back fade Baltimore in a Ravens vs. Washington prediction.
John Harbaugh will make it a point to run the ball at will. Ron Rivera’s group has succumbed 158 or more rushing yards in back-to-back games, and they’ll have no answer for Lamar Jackson running the RPO.
Anyone hoping Dwayne Haskins can be counted on to save the day, just remember he threw three picks last time out and is yet to hit 225 passing yards in a game.

If Baker Mayfield and the Browns offense can run wild against the Football Team, there’s no telling what the reigning MVP and his crew are capable of on Sunday afternoon.
