Tennessee vs. Baltimore, NFL Betting Predictions, November 22

It was just a month ago that we were talking about how both of these teams could challenge the Chiefs in the AFC. However, neither the Tennessee Titans nor Baltimore Ravens have looked like Super Bowl contenders in recent weeks. Both teams have lost two of their three November contests so far as their offenses have taken a nosedive. The difference in this game is one defense is still an elite unit, and that should propel the Ravens to victory.

Titans vs. Ravens Betting Odds

Tennessee’s offense has disappeared in the last four weeks as the Titans have gained fewer than 300 total yards in three of the last four weeks. It has coincided with the defense allowing more than 380 yards of offense per game and the Titans have lost three of those games as a result. Derrick Henry certainly hasn’t been the problem as he’s had a pair of 100-yard efforts and averaged 4.6 yards per carry over the last four weeks. That will be a challenge this week against Baltimore’s defense as the Ravens will try to force Ryan Tannehill to beat them with his arm. The Ravens rank seventh against the pass while Tennessee is the 24th-best passing offense in the NFL. Tannehill hasn’t thrown for more than 233 yards in the last four weeks and he’s completed just 52 percent of his passes over the last two games.

If the last few weeks have proven anything, it’s how reliant Baltimore has been on its rushing attack to fuel the offense. The 242 passing yards the Ravens had last week were the most for Baltimore since the opener and Lamar Jackson has more games with less than 200 yards passing than he does throwing for more than 200 yards. The Titans are in the middle of the pack against the run, but they struggle to defend the pass, which is not a strength of this Ravens squad. Equally as concerning for the Ravens is their inability to finish drives with touchdowns as they average just 2.2 points per drive, 20th best in the league. Baltimore’s best offense has been its defense forcing turnovers and giving the offense a short field to punch in touchdowns. Without those short fields, Baltimore’s offense is just not moving the ball well enough to score touchdowns at the moment.

The NFL betting sites in New Jersey have set the over/under on this game at 48.5 points, which seemed a bit high for me. Both of these offenses have struggled to score in recent weeks and that opened the door for a low-scoring affair. Both of these teams have played games in the 40-50 points in recent weeks and it wouldn’t take much for this game to exceed 48.5 points. The difference in my mind is whether or not the Ravens can turn field goals into touchdowns more often in this game. Baltimore scores on just under 41 percent of its drives this season, which is in the middle of the pack in the league, but they don’t score a lot of touchdowns. Still, Jackson threw for two touchdowns last week in terrible weather, so he can do it with better conditions at home this weekend. I’ll begrudgingly bet the over 48.5 total points at -110 odds.

Ravens to win

I’m very comfortable with Baltimore being the touchdown favorites it is this week over Tennessee for several reasons. It begins with its defense that leads the league in points allowed and is allowing points on a league-low 27 percent of drives. That unit should be able to shut down a struggling Tennessee offense that can’t seem to get anything going in either facet. However, I also have faith in Jackson to be able to use his mobility as a weapon against the Titans. Tennessee is not nearly as good against the run as New England, so that should allow Mark Ingram and the running back trio to have better success and open up the designed run-pass options. Once that happens, the Ravens should cruise to a win, so I’ll bet the Ravens to win by at least 14 points at +185 odds.
