|8:20pm||BAL -1.5 (-110)||46.5 (-110)||NO +1.5 (-110)|
Baltimore Ravens (5-3) @ New Orleans Saints (3-5)
Key Injury Watch:
BAL – OUT – (TE) Mark Andrews, (WR) Rashod Bateman, (RB) Gus Edwards, (RB) JK Dobbins
NO – OUT – (WR) Michael Thomas, (RB) Mark Ingram, (CB) Marshon Lattimore
Injuries are having a major impact on this spread, but most significantly for the Ravens, who are without their starters at all offensive skill positions aside from QB.
Baltimore will be pulling DeSean Jackson off their practice squad to suit up in this one, who’s hoping to turn back the clock by getting behind the defense for a long TD. He’ll certainly be needed for the Ravens, who will otherwise rely on largely unproven commodities like Demarcus Robinson, James Proche and rookie Isaiah Likely.
The Saints are fresh off a 24-0 drubbing of the Raiders, which would look more impressive if Las Vegas didn’t just blow a 17-0 lead to the Jaguars, to fall to 2-6.
Alvin Kamara erupted for a TD trifecta last weekend, showcasing his elite chops in the passing game, where he finished with 9 catches for 96 yards. Kamara will be on full display at the Caesars Superdome tonight, and is bound to terrorize a vulnerable Ravens secondary.
The injuries will take their toll on Baltimore on the road, allowing the Saints defense to really zero-in on Lamar Jackson, given the lack of playmakers around him. New Orleans prevails at home with a bit more defensive resistance than expected, to lock up the under as well.
