The New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens do battle in week 9 Monday Night Football action at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans. The Baltimore Ravens look for a win after winning 3 of their last 4 games. The New Orleans Saints need a win after losing 5 of their last 7 games.

The Baltimore Ravens have won 3 of their last 4 road games. Lamar Jackson is completing 63 percent of his passes for 1,635 yards, 15 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Mark Andrews and Devin Duvernay have combined for 801 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns, while Rashod Bateman has 15 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 165.6 yards per contest, and Jackson leads the way with 553 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 22.9 points and 364.3 yards per game. Patrick Queen leads the Baltimore Ravens with 53 tackles, Justin Houston has 6 sacks and Marcus Williams has 3 interceptions.

The New Orleans Saints have split their last 4 home games. Andy Dalton is completing 65.2 percent of his passes for 1,175 yards, 9 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Chris Olave and Alvin Kamara have combined for 834 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Tre’Quan Smith has 14 receptions.

The Ravens are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Saints are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Monday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 9. The under is 4-1 in Ravens last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Saints last 5 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Baltimore Ravens scare the hell out of me with how they fall apart in the fourth quarter and either blow the game or keep things too close for comfort. Still, the Ravens are a very good team with an explosive offense and the defense just got better with the addition of Roquan Smith. The New Orleans Saints just can’t get out of their own way, mainly with a defense that’s 28th in scoring, and it’s going to take more than a victory over the Raiders to get me onboard. It’s not easy to play in New Orleans, especially in prime time when folks have had time to get their vocal cords ready. Still, the Ravens are far and away more trustworthy. I’ll lay the points.
