The Baltimore Ravens head into Washington riding a 16-game winning streak in pre-season play and have won and covered the point spread in each of their three exhibition contests this season. Can they keep the streak alive on Thursday?

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Whether you’re into trends or not, 16 straight wins in any way shape or form is a whole lot of Ws. The Ravens continue to be the best bet going in pre-season football and warrant a look again this week in D.C. Dating back to 2017, Baltimore is 10-2 against the spread (ATS) in exhibition play. Washington, which opened as a field-goal underdog at home, is 4-7 straight up and ATS over that same span in pre-season action.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore downed the Eagles 26-15 last week in a matchup that was cut short due early in the fourth quarter due to lightning. Take that streak for what it is, but it’s clear the Ravens are trying to develop a winning culture in the locker room every time they take the field. Nothing wrong with that – as long as nobody gets hurt before Week 1. Rookie quarterback Trace McSorley looked great in completing 19 of his 28 passing attempts for 203 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Chances are staring QB Lamar Jackson won’t even dress in Washington, so McSorely should get some more snaps.

Washington Redskins

Washington picked up its first win of pre-season play last week with a 19-7 win at Miami last week. Case Keenum hit on nine of 14 attempts for 104 yards and was later named the team’s Week 1 starter. The club also saw running back Derrius Guice pop for 44 yards on 11 rushing, which had to be a huge sigh of relief for the team’s management after he went down with an ACL injury last pre-season. Washington has a crowded backfield with Guice, Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson, and Samaje Perine all battling for touches. Guice and Peterson may be rested on Thursday as the club tries to sort out the bottom half of the depth chart.  Tight end Jordan Reed is in concussion protocol again after suffering his seventh diagnosed concussion of his career last week.
