The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception four years ago. It has nailed its recent top-rated NFL picks, entering Week 12 of the 2019 NFL schedule on a strong 30-20 run that dates back to last season. It's also on an incredible 92-63 roll on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season, The model has also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch the past three years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 96 percent of CBS Sports office pool players during the 2018 season. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, the model has set its sights on Rams vs. Ravens. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it also says one side of the spread hits in more than 50 percent of simulations. You can head to SportsLine to see it. Now, here are the NFL betting lines and trends for Rams vs. Ravens:
- Ravens vs. Rams spread: Ravens -3.5
- Ravens vs. Rams over-under: 47 points
- Ravens vs. Rams money line: Ravens -180, Rams +160

The model knows John Harbaugh has guided the Ravens to seven playoff berths in his 11 full seasons as head coach and in 2012 helped the team capture the franchise's second Super Bowl title. Baltimore has won three division crowns and played in three AFC Championships under Harbaugh. As a franchise, the Ravens have won five division titles.
Offensively, tight end Mark Andrews leads the Ravens in receptions with 48 for 598 yards (12.5 average) and six touchdowns. He has had 11 receptions go for 20 yards or more and has 10 catches for 128 yards and three touchdowns over the past two weeks in wins over Houston and Cincinnati.
But just because Baltimore has been red-hot does not guarantee it will cover the Rams vs. Ravens spread on Monday Night Football.
The Rams' defense continues to put the clamps on the opposition, while the team's 43 interceptions are tied for the second most in the NFL since the beginning of the 2017 season. Los Angeles has returned those picks a league-best 761 yards. The Rams are one of five teams with at least six interceptions returned for touchdowns since defensive coordinator Wade Phillips took over the defense.
Offensively, wide receiver Cooper Kupp leads the Rams in catches with 61 for 845 yards (13.9 average) and five touchdowns. Kupp has 16 explosive receptions for 20 or more yards.
