The Giants are 22-8 ATS in their last 30 road games and 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Ravens are 7-3 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 6-0 in Giants last 6 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Ravens last 5 games overall. The home team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
The New York Giants compete and have been covering machines on the road over the last three years, but their offense has been downright awful since their bye week, which includes scoring a combined 13 points in their last two games. The Baltimore Ravens have scored a combined 121 points in their last three games and are easily playing their best football of the season. The Giants covering success makes them intriguing in the big underdog spot, but it's hard to trust their offense being able to do enough to hang here. The Ravens are entering playoff form and are starting to fire on all cylinders. I'll eat the chalk with the home team.
