Baltimore Ravens Football

Ravens Look to Dispose of Texans for Playoff Push

The Houston Texans and the Baltimore Ravens will meet on ESPN Monday night for Monday Night Football. The game is being played at M&T Bank Stadium and kickoff is set for 8:30 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Ravens as -7.5-point favorites versus the Texans, while the game’s total opened at 38. The total has since eased up to 39.

The Ravens thrive under the bright lights. They can also strengthen their position in the AFC playoff race with a victory over the Houston Texans. Since coach John Harbaugh took over the team in 2008, Baltimore has gone 11-1 in night games. That is by far the best mark in the NFL. The Ravens have also won nine consecutive prime-time matchups.

Baltimore won its last outing, a 23-0 result against the Green Bay Packers on November 19. The Ravens covered in that game as a -2.5-point favorite, while the 23 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Baltimore holds the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC. They have not played at M&T Bank Stadium since a 44-0 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 26. The Ravens have a chance to win consecutive games for the first time since the opening two weeks of the season.

Texans Looking to Stay Relevant

Houston was a 31-21 winner in its last match at home against the Arizona Cardinals. They covered the -2.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 52 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The Texans are trying to stay afloat without starting quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice earlier this month. Tom Savage will get his fifth start of the season against a Ravens’ secondary that leads the NFL with 16 interceptions.

Savage lost his first two starts when Watson went down with the injury. He was better last week against the Arizona Cardinals. He went 22 of 32 for 230 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
