This game is full of unknowns. Both rosters have underperformed expectations and it’s clear how critical this matchup is for both teams in order to get back on track. Ravens come in sitting (4-3) on the season, however they’ve had a much more difficult schedule than the Bucs have faced. The Bucs come in sitting at (3-4) and from what I’ve seen with my eyes watching this team is that they are simply not good. They’ve looked pathetic the last 3 weeks as they dropped games to the Panthers, Steelers, and barely escaped a victory over the Falcons.
The Ravens offense have shown they can score points, we should see that from them tonight. The problem is for the Bucs they’ve struggled massively the last 3 weeks at getting points on the board. The offense hasn’t been able to move the ball, the run game has been awful, in fact it’s been the worst in the NFL this season. The receiver play has been down, Tom Brady hasn’t played at his all pro level, and the defense hasn’t been as impactful as people thought coming into the season.
Let’s be clear we are betting against the best quarterback in NFL history, however for this team to win this football game they would have to complete a full 180 to turn this dumpster fire around. Against a challenging Baltimore team that seems to be trending up in the right direction, I just don’t think it’s likely that Tampa wins this game tonight. This is a value bet in my opinion as we get the Ravens at + money which is to good to stay off of so I am throwing a unit on it tonight.
