Ravens vs. Saints: Betting odds, spread and pick for 'Monday Night Football'

New, comment

New Orleans hosts the Baltimore Ravens Monday night and both teams are enjoying some positive betting trends.

The New Orleans Saints are 0-2 SU and ATS in their last two games at home since going 11-0 SU and 9-1-1 ATS in their previous 11 games at home. The Saints will look to avoid a third-straight loss at home hosting the Baltimore Ravens this Monday night.

New Orleans was a 3-point home favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Playing in their third-straight important game at home, look for the Saints to get back on track with a win and cover this week as a 3-point favorite, despite what the computer thinks.

OddsShark Computer Prediction: Baltimore 31.9, New Orleans 24.8

After starting the season off 2-4 SU and ATS through their first six games, the Saints had seemingly put things together with back-to-back blowout wins at home against Green Bay and then on the road against Carolina.

But with a 4-4 SU record and three straight games at home on the schedule, New Orleans failed to take advantage, losing to San Francisco, 27-24, in overtime and then Cincinnati, 27-10, last week. The Saints are just 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games against Baltimore.

Baltimore visits New Orleans at 8:30 p.m. ET Monday night the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in a clash which will send one team up the Super Bowl betting future lines and will send one team down. Both are roughly 40-1 long shots, per Bovada.

The Ravens missed out on a golden opportunity to seize control of the AFC North in recent weeks, losing back-to-back games to Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. But with a 21-7 win over Tennessee, Baltimore entered last week's bye still right in the thick of the division race with a 6-4 SU and ATS record through 10 games. Baltimore is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games coming off a bye week but is also 0-3 SU and ATS in its last three games as a road underdog.

Monday night's total is set at 50.5 points at the sportsbooks. The OVER is 3-0 in the last three games between these two teams and 3-1 in New Orleans' last four games as a home favorite, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.

This is a tough one to call. Plenty of signs point to Baltimore coming out on top, but the Saints have been so strong at home in recent years it is hard to see New Orleans losing three straight games at the Superdome. The Saints are worth consideration at only -3.
