The Colts are coming off an impressive 41-21 win over the Detroit Lions and have seen an impressive offensive boost in recent weeks, but that surge will be put to the test Sunday against a Ravens team that is coming off a narrow loss to unbeaten Pittsburgh but has allowed the second-fewest points in the NFL.

NFL Week 9 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Baltimore is favoured by just under a field goal – and giving points in road games has agreed with the Ravens from a betting perspective. They’re 6-1-2 ATS in their last nine contests when favoured away from Baltimore, while winning all nine of those games SU. And their early season success is resonating with Sports Interaction participants, who are siding with the visitors to cover this weekend at a whopping 88-percent clip.

Coincidentally, the consensus is just as significant when it comes to the game total, with 88 percent of Sports Interaction bettors siding with the O47. But many notable trends are skewing in the opposite direction; most significantly, these teams have cashed the Under in each of their last five meetings in Indianapolis, and are 1-9 O/U in their previous 10. None of their last four head-to-head meetings have produced more than 35 total points.

Baltimore Ravens

Are we in for a “squeaky wheel” performance from Marquise Brown? It might be worth betting on, given how vocal he was about his diminished role in the Baltimore passing game. While Brown leads the team in receiving with 379 yards, he has been targeted just eight times over the past two games – with just two of those coming in last week’s loss to Pittsburgh. Look for Lamar Jackson to get Brown more involved, and ride the Over on his receiving yard prop.

Indianapolis Colts

At first glance, news that Jonathan Taylor returned to practice this week after dealing with injuries in last week’s game is encouraging news for those of you intending to bet the Over on his player props. But even if the rookie running back is at full health, it’s unlikely he’ll see a full workload between his recent struggles and the emergence of backfield mates Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. Either take the Under, or avoid his props altogether.
