When you finish with 330 more yards than your opponent like the Ravens did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They couldn't have asked for a better start to 2021 than the 38-3 stomp they dished out against the Cincinnati Bengals on the road. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Baltimore had established a 38-3 advantage. RB J.K. Dobbins had a stellar game for Baltimore as he rushed for two TDs and 160 yards on 13 carries. Dobbins put himself on the highlight reel with a 72-yard TD scramble down the left side of the field in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, Tennessee came out on top in a nail-biter against the Houston Texans last week, sneaking past 41-38. The Titans' RB Derrick Henry did his thing and rushed for two TDs and 250 yards on 34 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the contest was Henry's 52-yard touchdown rush down the right side of the field in the second quarter.
The Ravens are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Baltimore ranks first in the NFL when it comes to rushing yards per game, with 191.9 on average.
