Baltimore Ravens vs Indianapolis Colts (IND +2.5, O/U 47)
Baltimore hits the road to Indianapolis where Philip Rivers and the 5-2 Colts await the reigning MVP. Lamar Jackson hopes to return to that MVP form after coughing up four turnovers against the Steelers in Week 8.
It’s shaping up to be a difficult matchup against a Colts defense that is in the top five in yards per play and points per game allowed through seven games, as Jackson will also be without top offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley. Rivers will attempt to win for the sixth time in his last seven starts and keep the Colts undefeated at home.
Sportsbooks are anticipating a close matchup between these two 5-2 teams, with Baltimore currently listed as a 2.5-point favorite on the road.
