Eagles’ fans will get a firsthand look at Carson Wentz and the team’s first team offence on Thursday night.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Death, Taxes, and the Ravens winning in the preseason – these are the three certainties of life, or so it seems. The Ravens under John Harbaugh have rattled off 15 consecutive preseason wins dating back to the 2015 preseason. They’ll try to make it 16 on Thursday night in Philadelphia. Four of the 15 games won have come by just one point.

The Eagles are 1-1 this preseason entering game three of four this preseason. The Eagles are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall.

Of note, although their isn’t a large history between these two franchises, the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five games played.

Baltimore Ravens

Through two games the Ravens have averaged 27.5 points per game, and have allowed just 13 points against in total (including a shutout of the Jaguars in week of the preseason).

Starter Lamar Jackson is expected to play his final preseason game before the regular season begins in Miami on September 8. In two games, Jackson is 10-of-16 for 107 yards.

The big story has been the play of rookie Running back Justice Hill. Hill who was a fourth round (113th overall) selection by the Ravens in this year’s draft has carried the ball 20 times for 82 yards. He is making a strong case to be the back-up between Mark Ingram, who is expected to get his start as a member of the Ravens this week.

Speaking of debuts, look for receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown to find the field for the first time as well. The Ravens used their first round pick on the speedy flanker from Oklahoma.

Philadelphia Eagles

Expect to see Carson Wentz on the field for the first time this preseason against the Ravens on Thursday. By most accounts Wentz has had a good training camp and the Eagles have been cautious with their franchise Quarterback, especially considering what has happened to the position so far.

Earlier in the month, the team received some bad news about Nick Sudfeld who was lost because of a broken wrist, and shortly after that Cody Kessler entered concussion protocol, and his status is still unknown. That is why the team went out this weekend to sign Josh McCown to a deal. McCown is still learning the playbook, and is likely to dress for this game, but likely will not play.

Look for plenty of Clayton Thorson to see the field in this game. So far he has made the most of his opportunity. Last week against the Jaguars he was 16-of-26 for 175 yards.
