The Baltimore Ravens are simply world beaters… in the pre-season that is. It’s a remarkable (pre-season) run for the Ravens franchise, but one they probably don’t take seriously. Sure, they are 2-0 this exhibition round, but the Ravens franchise enters this game against the Colts on a 10-game winning (pre-season) streak. The last time the Ravens actually lost a game at this time of season, September 3, 2015.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

These two teams last met back in December of 2017, with the Ravens edging the Colts at home 23-16. A couple of key stats entering this pre-season game, the Ravens are 0-4 ATS in their last four games in Indianapolis, and the under between these two team head-to-head is a perfect 5-0 in the last five games in Indy. In their last eight games overall, the Colts are a perfect 8-0 to the under as well.

Baltimore Ravens

This will be pre-season game number three for the Baltimore Ravens, having played in the annual Hall of Fame game back on August 2. So far, so good for the Ravens as they hold a 2-0 pre-season record entering this game with the Colts. There’s a pretty good battle going on behind starter Joe Flacco at the back-up quarterback position. Veteran Robert Griffin III is holding a slight edge over draft pick Lamar Jackson. Both have played in the first two pre-season games, and both will play Monday night.

According to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley former Arizona Cardinal Receiver John Brown has been the best receiver in Ravens camp. Brown has appeared in one game, catching one ball for 17 yards. He is expected to play in this game against the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts received a ton of bad news in their pre-season win against the Seahawks (19-17). Lost for the season is receiver Deon Cain, as he tore his ACL in that game. In addition, running backs Marlon Mack (hamstring) and Robert Turbin (ankle) are considered week-to-week and will not practice this week let alone play in Monday’s game.

With the two veterans on the sidelines, Nyheim Hines will get another look in the backfield. Last year Hines struggled with seven yards on three carries, expect more snaps this week. Quarterback Andrew Luck was six for nine last week in a win against the Seahawks. Look for Luck to play the first set of downs this Monday, before giving way to back-up Jacoby Brissett.
