The Baltimore Ravens don’t need to hit the panic button quite yet, but in a crowded AFC North division they can’t afford another upset loss like last week’s 22-10 defeat in Miami.  Chicago should be plenty rested for this one as they’re coming off their bye week.  The Bears have lost their last four games, including a heartbreaking 29-27 decision against Pittsburgh in Week 9.

Baltimore is a 4.5-point favourite to win on the NFL odds, with a total of 45.0.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

These teams haven’t met since Chicago won an overtime game in Baltimore four years ago.  That lack of head-to-head history hasn’t seemed to deter Sports Interaction bettors, as 77 per cent of action is taking the Ravens in this one.  The total split is a little closer, with about 65 per cent of bettors banking on the Over.

Baltimore has been great at home this season, but they’re inconsistent on the road, going 2-2 straight up outside of M&T Bank Stadium.  They’re 3-6 against the spread overall and have failed to cover in four of their last five games.  Dating back to last season, the total has gone Under in six of the Ravens’ last seven road games.

The Bears have been better at home this season as they’re 2-2 SU in Chicago compared to 1-4 SU on the road.  They’re 4-5 ATS overall, with two of those covers coming at home.  The total has gone Under in six of Chicago’s last eight games.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens blew a great chance last week to improve their one-game cushion atop the AFC North.  Lamar Jackson looked uncomfortable against a Miami defence that has been average at best this year.  Jackson was 26-of-43 passing, finishing with 238 yards, a touchdown and an interception.  He added another 39 rushing yards.  Rashod Bateman led all Baltimore receivers with 80 yards, while Mark Andrews had the team’s lone touchdown.  The 10-point effort ended the Ravens’ streak of 51 regular season games with at least 14 points, the second-longest streak in NFL history (New England had a 63-game streak from 2009-2013).

Cornerback Tavon Young, who had already been dealing with a knee injury, left last week’s game with a foot injury.  Head coach John Harbaugh said Young will likely play this week, although there’s been no definitive update on his status.  Running back Latavius Murray is expected to return from an ankle injury that has sidelined him since Week 6.  Murray has had a bit of a down year, averaging 35.3 rushing yards per game and just 3.6 yards per carry.

Chicago Bears

Rookie Justin Fields has continued to improve as the season goes on, although he’s still far from being an elite NFL quarterback.  Fields was 17-of-29 against Pittsburgh, finishing with 291 passing yards, a touchdown and an interception (his sixth INT in his last four games).  He also added another 45 yards on the ground.  Penalties were a big issue in the game for Chicago.  The Bears were flagged 12 times, including a pass-interference call that resulted in a Pittsburgh field goal and an illegal block that negated a one-yard touchdown pass from Fields.

One positive for the Bears last week was the return of running back David Montgomery, who had been out since Week 4 due to a knee injury.  Montgomery looked good, playing 85 per cent of the offensive snaps and finishing with 63 rushing yards.
