Ravens at Buccaneers Betting: Baltimore Staying Afloat
Baltimore defeated the Browns 23-20 on week 7, and that allowed them to improve to 4-3 on the season.
The Ravens made a lot of mistakes versus the New York Giants on week 6, but this time they figured things out and they again seem like s high-caliber team.
Baltimore is now tied for the AFC North division’s first position right there with Cincinnati.
Starting quarterback Lamar Jackson has been struggling a little bit lately.
On Sunday, Lamar went 9 of 16 for 120 yards.
Needless to say, the team has been relying a lot on their defensive line this current season, a factor that has allowed them to win games.
Linebacker Patrick Queen has had an impressive season so far.
During the victory over Cleveland, Queen finished with eleven tackles total, plus one sack, and three tackles for loss.
Queen is currently tied with safety Chuck Clark for the most tackles for Baltimore, with 49.
The Ravens got running back Gus Edwards back from injury.
Edwards finished with sixteen carries for 66 yards and 2 touchdowns in the victory.
He will lead the Baltimore backfield from now on, with running back J.K. Dobbins returning to the IR, after a previous injury began to take a toll on him again.

Ravens at Buccaneers Betting: Tampa Bay Shockingly Bad
The Bucs were fully embarrassed by Carolina on Sunday.
Versus a franchise that had lost their starting quarterback and second-string quarterback to injuries, the Bucs still got blown out.
They started the game as huge 13-point favorites but ended up losing the game by an incredible 18 points. They were just bad on all fronts.
Tom Brady’s number for this game was disappointing: He finished with 32 for 49 for 290 yards and zero touchdowns while struggling the full four quarters to get the ball downfield.
The running game for Tampa was also a disaster as they accumulated just 46 yards and zero touchdowns on sixteen carries. Tampa Bay’s offensive line also allowed quarterback P.J. Walker to finish with sixteen of twenty-two for 177 yards and two TDs.
QB1 for the Panthers finished this game with a 126.5 passer rating, this exceeds Brady’s 81.2 passer rating that same day.
The Bucs’ D-line was also unable to stop the run as they allowed backup running backs a Chuba Hubbard and D’Onta Foreman to rush a total of 24 times for 181 yards.
Ravens at Buccaneers Betting Prediction & Pick
Here is our Ravens at Buccaneers Betting prediction and pick:
These two franchises have offensive lines that seem to be regressing while both also have very good d-lines.
Now, after that bad display versus Carolina, the Bucs’ defense is not looking very intimidating.
We are likely headed to watch a low-scoring game with the Ravens getting the edge on the road.
