Ravens vs Jaguars Betting Preview

The Ravens running back Danny Woodhead is out (hamstring) and running back Terrance West is questionable. This is a real problem for a Baltimore team that is ranked second in the league with 74 rushing attempts and tied for third with 293 rushing yards. Joe Flacco has three touchdown passes and has completed 34 of 51 throws for 338 yards, but a lot of that production has come off of the success of the running game. The Ravens receivers just do not look like they threaten anyone.

Jacksonville has been living off of rookie running back Leonard Fournette who ranks fifth in the league with 140 rushing yards and has scored a touchdown in both games. It is the only choice that the Jaguars have if they want to win this year. Bortles has been a turnover plagued quarterback and will continue to be one. The Jaguars will continue to run the ball against defenses stacked to stop the run until they have no choice. Then Bortles will get his slop yards and touchdowns.

Ravens vs Jaguars Betting Prediction

Games in London tend to be low scoring. There is some talk about the turf being a little loose for the big guys since it is designed for much lighter soccer players. However, one other cause might be the crappy offenses that the NFL sends to London. They know the game will be sold out so why waste a good game on foreigners. There might be more field goals than touchdowns in this game with both teams having trouble getting a consistent passing game started.

This game has the look of one where both head coaches know that the quarterback is more likely to lose the game than to win it. There will be a lot of running and three and outs. The only good thing about this game is that it is on so early (6:30am Vegas Time) that I will bet it before I go to bed on Saturday and on Sunday I will spend my time going over the upcoming games instead of watching this sleeper.

Ravens vs Jaguars Pick: Under 39.5 & Jaguars +3.5
Score Prediction: Ravens 19 – Jaguars 16
