Need a winner? Nick Ballistreri gives his mortal lock of the week of Week 4’s slate.
Each week there’s a line that just sticks out. For me, there is one team I will absolutely be betting on this week and including in all my parlays:
The Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens are 13 point favorites on the road against the Washington Football Team. If you missed last week, the Ravens got pretty much embarrassed on national TV against the Chiefs.
After an off-season of hootin and hollering about how the Ravens were ready to take that next step and not only compete with the Chiefs, but beat them…they went out and lost 34-20. Without a kick return for a TD…it’s even worse.
However, this is a blessing in disguise for Ravens fans and bettors alike. Losing to the Chiefs hurts, but if there’s one thing it will do for them, it’s motivate them.
The Ravens are going to come out with a vengeance, and I’m not sure it mattered who they were playing this week. It just happens to be the Washington Football Team. They don’t stand a chance.
It’s not even their fault. However, the fact that Chase Young is out for this game isn’t helping their cause, and Haskins inability to throw accurate passes…or the fact that their only offensive threat in Terry McLaurin is banged up…you get my point.
I fully expect the Ravens to put up a ridiculous performance and for Lamar Jackson to have another MVP-type performance. Take the Ravens to cover -13, and I’d be comfortable buying it to 20.
Mortal LOCK of the week: Ravens -13
