You may have watched the Ravens destroy the Bengals on Monday Night Football last night. You may have watched Joe Flacco look flat-out dangerous as he completed 21 of 29 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns. He led a potent and explosive attack that was strengthened by running back Ray Rice’s big night. Rice carried only 10 times, but totaled 68 yards and two touchdowns.
The Ravens defense? Still pretty damn good. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton made some big plays, but spent most of the night with Baltimore’s potent pass rush in his face.
Meanwhile, you probably watched the Eagles stumble, trip, and do everything in their power to let the lowly Cleveland Browns pull off an upset win, though they still held on to win.
So, obviously ,the Ravens will be favored Sunday right? Not quite.
Popular sports betting book 5 Dimes has installed the Eagles as a one-point favorite Sunday in what should be one of the weekend’s best games. It’ll be interesting to see if early bettors will push the line back in Baltimore’s favor, but the expectation is that the Eagles will remain the favorite come kickoff.
