The Baltimore Ravens need a home victory after their brutal 1-6 start to the season. Joe Flacco is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 1,857 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. Flacco has four touchdown passes in his last three games. Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken have combined for 859 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Crockett Gillmore has 18 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 103.1 yards per contest, and Justin Forsett leads the way with 493 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 26.9 points and 385.4 yards per game. Daryl Smith leads the Ravens with 62 tackles, Lawrence Guy has three sacks and Jimmy Smith has five pass deflections. Kendrick Lewis, Maxx Williams and Terrence Brooks are questionable.
The Chargers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Ravens are 9-4-2 ATS in their last 15 games in November and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Chargers actually have a reliable quarterback and weapons around him. The Ravens just look lost on both sides of the ball, as they're struggling to score and the defense can't stop much. Both of these teams are terrible, but if forced to pick, I have more confidence in the Cargers and Rivers than I do Flacco and the Ravens.
Give me the free field goal.
