The Baltimore Ravens have not had an easy-going lately, so it will be a breath of fresh air to face the Miami Dolphins tonight. The Ravens went up against Vikings last weekend and beat Minnesota in an OT thriller. They had a bi-week in week 8 and in Week 7 they were crushed by the Cincinnati Bengals. Baltimore has only lost 2 games this season and leads the AFC North, which is a tough division.
The Miami Dolphins are in a world of trouble this season, as has been the trend for them in past years. The Dolphins are 2-7 going into Week 9 and facing the Ravens is the last thing they probably wanted to do. They have missed their QB Tua Tagovailoa, who has had a finger injury and has not been a stranger to the sidelines this season. He is currently slated as a game-time decision, but the Dolphins should think twice about running Tua out of the gates as the longer term must be a metric in their decision.
The Miami offensive line is one of the worst in the league. The Ravens’ defense will be able to run all over the Miami offense so expect a big stat game for the defense.
While the Dolphins will most likely not get completely blown off the field on Thursday Night Football, but, it will still be very hard for them to beat Lamar Jackson, the NFL MVP favorite, in prime time. The Ravens have come through their tough schedule and have proved that they should be the leaders in the division. They’re good. Miami isn’t good.
The odds are stacked against the Miami Dolphins in this one. bet365 Sports has posted pre-game odds that are in favor of the Ravens at 1.26 for the outright win. Miami will need a miracle to get the win in this one. But, don't count them totally out at 4.00 for the win. There will also be a set of live in-play odds at bet365 that punters can take advantage of throughout all four quarters of NFL action.
