Ravens vs Patriots: Monday Night Football Game Preview and OddsPublished December 12, 2016 by Sol FH
The odds are in favor of the Patriots and with home turf advantage the Ravens need a miracle. Kick-off tonight at 1:30 GMT.
The Patriots (10-2) are truly one of the best NFL teams in the league. They are more decorated than most teams in a relatively short period of time and have stayed at the highest level of football since around 2001. Playing at their home stadium is something that most teams would right-off as a loss prior to playing at Gillette Stadium, but this season, two teams have been able to break the Pats and the Ravens hope to become the third.
The odds are seriously against anything other than a Patriots win. At bet365 Sports, they are 1.36 to win, while the Ravens are at 3.25. Most of the 211 individual betting markets at the UK sportsbook are well in favor of the Patriots, but on Monday Night Football, stranger things have happened.
If the Ravens (7-5) are to dream about winning they need to continue the same play as they have for the last two weeks with wins over the Dolphins and the Bengals. They literally crushed Miami last week and looked as though they could ravage any team in the league in doing so, but the Dolphins were not exactly the best last Sunday. In their last twelve games against the Patriots, Baltimore is a losing 3-9. The Patriots are fourth in the league for yards per game and their explosive offense continues to blow past anything.
The Pats are on a three-game winning streak with wins over the Rams the Jets and the 49ers. True, this has been a fairly easy few games for the Pats and they will be tested tonight against the Ravens.
Bettors that are looking for a solid bet tonight will go with the Patriots. At home at this point in the season, every game counts and Tom Brady isn't going to play anything less than perfect football.
