LOS ANGELES – The Week 13 edition of Monday Night Football gifts us a juicy matchup as the Baltimore Ravens (8-2) travel West to take on the Los Angeles Rams (6-4). This game will feature two of the most potent offenses in the NFL, and current NFL MVP frontrunner Lamar Jackson (+140) will be hoping to extend the Ravens winning streak to seven games.
The Ravens come into this game as 3.5-point favorites on the road against the Rams. The Ravens have been one of the best teams in the NFL this year. Now that their defense has finally hit its stride this will be one of the toughest teams to beat heading into the final stretch of the season.
The Ravens have been one of the more popular teams to bet on this year at sportsbooks and that explains why over 63% of the wagers placed on this game have been on the favorite.
“Baltimore, next to New England, is one of the more popular teams [with the betting public],” said Ed Salmons VP and head football oddsmaker at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
This has made USA sportsbooks uneasy and they need more bets placed on the underdog Rams (+165) to limit some of the liability since they are likely to lose a lot of money with a Ravens (-185) victory tonight.

The way the Rams have played this year, it’s hard to believe that this is a team that made the Super Bowl just a season ago. This is a must-win game for the Rams as a loss here would hurt their playoff chances in a crowded NFC playoff race. For the Rams to pull off the upset they’ll have to do a better job of protecting quarterback Jared Goff. The fourth-year quarterback has already thrown 10 interceptions through ten games. Goff only had 12 interceptions last season.
The Ravens have the highest-scoring offense in the NFL and the Rams offense can still put points on the board against any team. Which makes the 47-point total in this matchup seem likely to go Over. The Ravens defense has been playing great as of late but most of the scoring will come from the Ravens offense. In six of the last nine meetings between the Ravens-Rams, the total has gone Over.
After this game, the Ravens will host the NFC leading San Francisco 49ers in what will likely be the game of the week. The Rams have an NFC West matchup with the Arizona Cardinals where they will try to keep their playoff hopes alive.
