It’s been a lackluster season so far for both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens, but they’ll each try and right the ship Sunday when they collide in Maryland. Home field advantage has been nonexistent for backers of the Ravens, as Joe Flacco and company are an ugly 0-6 ATS in their last six home games.
Trend seekers will also be interested to know that the Ravens are 0-9-1 ATS in their previous 10 games when tabbed as the favorites. Baltimore opened as 6.5-point home chalk for the tilt.
As bad as the Ravens have been as faves, the Jags aren’t exactly lighting the world on fire when it comes to winning straight up as underdogs. Gus Bradley’s squad is 0-13 SU in their last 13 games as underdogs. The good news is someone is going to win this game, but it won’t come anywhere close to being on the radar of NFL fans outside of their respective fan bases.
