Ravens vs Packers | The Baltimore Ravens (4-5) come back from their bye week to visit the Green Bay Packers (5-4) this Sunday as little street top choices.
Not with standing playing his best round of the season for the Packers in a 23-16 street prevail upon the Chicago Bears a week ago, books are still not getting tied up with quarterback Brett Hundley, who is required to play regardless of a sore hamstring.
Why the Ravens can cover the spread
The Ravens have a clear edge at quarterback with Joe Flacco under center even though he has not played like a former Super Bowl-winning player this season.
You can also make an argument that Baltimore’s John Harbaugh is a better head coach than Green Bay’s Mike McCarthy even though both have helped their respective teams win a Vince Lombardi Trophy.
The Ravens have gone 12-3 straight up and against the spread in their last 15 games following a bye, and Harbaugh deserves a lot of credit for that preparation. Ravens vs Packers
Why the Packers can cover the spread
Other than the post-bye week betting trend, most of the others favor the Packers in this spot. They have won five of the past six meetings with Baltimore both SU and ATS, taking four straight in the series at Lambeau Field as well.
Green Bay is also a solid 18-6-1 SU in its last 25 home games against teams with losing records and proved last week Hundley is capable of playing better than he did in his first two starts replacing Aaron Rodgers.
Hundley will be motivated to earn his first home win here.Ravens vs Packers
The biggest betting trend supporting the home underdogs in this matchup is the fact the Ravens are just 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games as road favorites.
While the Packers scored just 17 points each in home losses to the New Orleans Saints and Detroit Lions with Hundley under center, Baltimore is worse than both of those teams.
In fact, the Ravens lost 27-24 at home to the Bears in Week 6, and they will fall to 0-3 versus NFC North teams if they drop the game at Green Bay on Sunday.
