In their last 5, the Ravens are 5-0 while the Rams are 3-2. The true question in this game is if anyone is really able to stop Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson? My answer is no and I am going with the Ravens in this one. Although both teams match up well defensively, the Ravens offense has played well all season and I don’t see it stopping against the Rams. Ravens win 31-21 and cover the spread.
