Giants Vs Ravens: Quick Betting Preview

The Giants are on the losing end of the series meetings against the Baltimore Ravens all-time. The Ravens lead that 5-2. Week 16 in 2020 was the last meeting between the two, and the Ravens squeaked out a 27-13 win, dominating the ground with 249 yards.

As of right now, the Ravens are a five-point favorite, which is about right, considering they are probably the more talented team. Big Blue are coming off a massive win in London against the Green Bay Packers, a game very few thought they would come out victorious in. The Ravens have a high-scoring offense (it is true, look it up), fourth highest in the league at 27.6 per game. The over/under is slated at 44.5, with both teams having the propensity to run the football.

Trending Patterns

In the seven total meetings, all time, the Ravens are 5-2 against the spread and 5-2 straight up in those games. Luck has not been on the G-Men’ side when they have played the AFC North lately. In their last five games against the AFC North, the Giants have posted an 0-5 record. The Giants have covered the spread four times this season (4-1-0). Their total has only gone over one time in three home games this season. Overall, games have the capacity twice. They are, however, 2-0 ATS as underdogs of least 5.5 points.

Post London

The Giants did upset the Green Bay Packers last week. However, the game was in London, so from a betting perspective, it is never good for the team the following week. All trends point to taking the opponent’s team total when playing a “post-London” team that did not get a bye. That would be the NY Giants, and the team total would be 24.5 for Baltimore.

The critical question in this game is whether you think the Giants are a true 4-1 or overrated. The Raven’s team total is only at 24.5, and the Giants have a bend-don’t-break defense so far this year.

Prop Bets

If you are a prop bettor, take a look at rushing totals. I have seen Saquon Barkley from 70.5-71.5 yards, which are good numbers in my mind. The Giants are going to run the ball, and they are going to keep it close so they will not be pass happy. Play Barkley.

Staying with the run totals, I like Lamar Jackson on an over with anything below 60. You should easily find that number from 58-58.5.

Receiving totals has some value here as well. Again, two teams like to run the ball, but some key match-ups make these numbers playable. Mark Andrews, the Baltimore Ravens tight end, should be able to surpass 65.5, which seems steady across multiple boards. As for the Giants, I like Darius Slayton (yes, I said it). He stepped up last week against the Packers and totaled 79 yards, a minimal number you’re looking at here at 35.5. The Giants need a receiving hero, and he will step up again. A quick look at Daniel Bellinger or Barkley in the 22-25 range could also be a small play.

Three Things To Watch For

Which wide receiver steps up for the Giants?

Through the first five weeks of the regular season, the Giants have leaned on Saquon Barkley. However, the Ravens will try to limit his production, which means someone else must step up. The good news for the Giants is that the Ravens allow a league-high 290.2 passing yards per game. They’ve also given up 216.6 yards per game and six touchdowns to wide receivers through the first five weeks. If I’m Giants head coach Brian Daboll, I’m looking to get the ball deep to Darius Slayton or Richie James, who had an excellent first three games to the season.

Ravens’ ground attack vs. the Giants’ defense

This is a perfect game for Baltimore to establish its ground game with Jackson and JK Dobbins against a less-than-stellar Giants’ run defense. Big Blue did an excellent job in Week 5, holding the duo of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon to 97 yards. However, in their lone loss this season, the G-Men gave up 176 yards to the Cowboys. The Ravens have to control the clock and win the battle of trenches because their running game will open up the passing game. In their three wins this season, the Ravens averaged 135.3 rushing yards per game. There’s no reason why they cannot put up 130 yards on the ground against New York.

Can the Big Blue protect Daniel Jones?

Over the past two weeks, the Giants’ offensive line has done a great job protecting Jones, who has only been sacked twice. It is a far cry from the first three games, where Jones was sacked 13 times. New York will be facing an aggressive Baltimore defense that is tied for first in takeaways (11) and has blitzed 57 times this season. If Danny Dimes is getting pressured, it could create some opportunities for takeaways.
