Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens
When: Monday, November 27, 8:30 p.m. ET
Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, Maryland
Betting Line / Total: Baltimore -7 / 38 Points
The Ravens came out of their bye last Sunday with an excellent defensive performance, shutting out the Green Bay Packers in a 23-0 win. The shutout was Baltimore's third of the season and its second over its last three games.
With the offense starting to come around of late with 25.5 points per game over the team's last six games, the Ravens may still be able to make a late push for a playoff spot in the underwhelming AFC.
In their last 15 games as a favorite of seven points or more, the Ravens are 15-0 SU with a 5-2 ATS record over their last seven such games per the OddsShark NFL Database.
After two pitiful efforts on offense with Tom Savage under center, the Texans finally found a groove on offense in a 31-21 win last Sunday over the Arizona Cardinals. Savage passed for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the win, but he still doesn't inspire much confidence, especially heading into this week's contest against a very dangerous Baltimore defense. Houston is 4-12 SU in its last 16 night games.
Monday night's total is set at 38 points. The UNDER is 4-1 in the last five games between Baltimore and Houston.
If Deshaun Watson hadn't have gotten injured, this would have likely been an important game between two teams battling for a key wild card tiebreaker in the AFC. Houston's playoff hopes aren't entirely dead with a 4-6 SU and 6-4 ATS record, but with Savage under center and a host of injuries on defense, this Texans team doesn't feel like much of a threat. Baltimore enters Sunday's action in the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC and can strengthen its position with a win.
