Against the Spread (ATS) Pick

Year 1 in the post-Tom Brady era has been tough for the Patriots, who have lost five of their last seven games. While they are coming off a win, that victory came against the 0-9 New York Jets, and they won by just three points after staging a fourth-quarter comeback. 

Although new Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has been a downgrade for the passing game, he doesn't have much help around him - especially with the injury to Julian Edelman. New England is just 28th in the league in scoring with 20.8 points per game and will have a tough time getting into the endzone against the Ravens' No. 1-ranked scoring defense.

However, it isn't just the Pats offense that has taken a step back. Their defense is also nowhere near as strong as a year ago and veteran defenders Dont'a Hightower and Patrick Chung choosing to opt-out of the season has really hurt. 

New England is surrendering a whopping 150.7 rushing yards per game over their last three contests and won't be able to slow down Baltimore's ground game, led by Lamar Jackson. With the Patriots just 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 home games, take Baltimore to win and cover.

PREDICTION: Baltimore -7 (-110)

 

Over/Under Pick

New England hit the Over last week against the Jets (which hit me right in the wallet) but will have a much harder time putting points on the board against a Ravens stop-unit that holds opponents to just 17.8 ppg.

Not only do the Ravens have one of the top defenses in the NFL, but their offense also plays at the fourth-slowest pace in the league according to Football Outsiders.

Both squads are also among the most run-heavy teams in the NFL, with Baltimore first in the league in rushing play percentage and New England third. Combine that with what's expected to be messy weather on Sunday in and you have all the ingredients for a lower-scoring, run-heavy game. 

With the Pats 4-1 to the Under in their last five home games and the Ravens 6-1 to the Under in their previous seven contests against AFC foes, take the Under. 

PREDICTION: Under 44 (-110)

First Quarter Bet

The Ravens are second in the league in first-quarter scoring with 7.6 ppg and have bumped that number up to 9.5 ppg over their last four contests. 

The Patriots have been getting off to very slow starts, averaging just 1.8 first-quarter ppg, second-worst in the league. Expect Baltimore to ride another quick start and have a lead after the first 15 minutes. 

PREDICTION: First Quarter Baltimore -0.5 (-110)
