Washington vs. Ravens 2016 picks and predictions: Experts favor Baltimore on Sunday

Experts think the Ravens will earn their fourth win of the season when they face Washington in Week 5 action on Sunday.

The Baltimore Ravens are playing in a competitive division, and while they haven't been perfect by any stretch of the imagination, they're doing a lot better than many expected sitting at 3-1 on the season. They sustained their first loss of the season in Week 4, falling to the Oakland Raiders. They'll try to get back on track when they play host to Washington in Week 5 on Sunday.

Washington is also playing in a tough division, one that is currently dominated by rookie quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott. Kirk Cousins has yet to find any of the magic that earned him Washington's starting job a season ago. He's thrown six touchdowns against four interceptions this season, but has played better over the team's last two games, with five touchdowns against one interception.

Washington has also won both of those games after losing their first two. Can they keep it up against the tough Ravens?

As far as experts are concerned, most think the Ravens will win it. Over at CBS Sports, seven of their eight writers are siding with Baltimore, leaving just one picking Washington. It's a similar spread over at ESPN, where eight of their nine analysts are going with the Ravens at home.

Here at SB Nation, there are some more fans of Washington.
