Baltimore Seeks Rare Cover as Betting Favorite

Harbaugh Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens haven’t been good to their backers as a betting favorite in recent seasons, going 0-10-2 ATS in their last 12 games as a favorite with just five outright wins over that stretch. After being ravaged by injuries in 2015, the Ravens are hoping to start their season off with a win this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Bills' last 6 games against the Ravens.
  • The Ravens are 33-14 SU in their last 47 games after a loss.
  • Baltimore is 1-9-1 ATS in its last 11 games at home.

Over the last 11 seasons, the Buffalo Bills are 9-2 ATS in their regular season openers. Buffalo hasn’t fared well in games with high totals however, going 0-5 SU and 0-4-1 ATS in its last five games with a closing total of 44.5 points or more. The Bills finished this year’s preseason with a 1-3 SU and ATS record.

Home field advantage has been key in this head-to-head matchup as the home team is 5-0 SU in the last five games between the Ravens and Bills.
