The Ravens are heavy favorites over the Denver Broncos ahead of their game Sunday in Baltimore, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.
After losses by both teams Sunday, the Ravens (7-4) are favored by 8 1/2 points in their Week 13 matchup. Denver (3-8) has lost three straight games and seven of its past eight overall, including a 23-10 road loss Sunday to the lowly Carolina Panthers. Quarterback Russell Wilson has been one of the NFL’s biggest disappointments, ranking 30th in the NFL in QBR.
The Ravens are coming off a 28-27 road loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, their fourth fourth-quarter collapse of the season. They’ve won three straight games at M&T Bank Stadium since opening their season with two home defeats.
Both teams have fallen short of oddsmakers’ expectations. The Ravens are 0-4-1 against the spread at home, tied for the worst mark in the NFL, while the Broncos are an NFL-worst 3-8 against the spread overall.
The Ravens lead the all-time series against Denver 9-7, including wins in their past two meetings. They routed the Broncos at Empower Field at Mile High last season, 23-7, led by quarterback Lamar Jackson’s 316 passing yards and a defense that knocked Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater out of the game.
The over-under for Sunday’s game is 38 1/2 points.
