I said it before and I’ll say it again here, the Ravens are the most overrated team in this game in my opinion, and one win last time out isn’t going to change that. The Ravens have burned us multiple times as a favorite, and now just because we’re getting points doesn’t mean I’m changing my tune, especially against a strong team like the Seattle Seahawks. I’ll lay the points with Seattle in this one.
