The Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks meet Sunday in NFL action at CenturyLink Field.
The Baltimore Ravens look for a statement win after splitting their last four games. The Baltimore Ravens have won five of their last eight road games. Lamar Jackson is completing 65.1 percent of his passes for 1,507 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. Jackson has four touchdown passes and five interceptions in his last three games. Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown have combined for 736 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Willie Snead IV has 15 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 205 yards per contest, and Jackson leads the way with 460 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 23.3 points and 350.2 yards per game. Patrick Onwuasor leads the Baltimore Ravens with 30 tackles, Matthew Judon has four sacks and Marlon Humphrey has two interceptions.
The Seattle Seahawks look for another victory to build on their three-game winning streak. The Seattle Seahawks have won seven of their last eight home games. Russell Wilson is completing 72.5 percent of his passes for 1,704 yards, 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 16 of his last 18 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 790 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 130.5 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 504 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 24.3 points and 359.8 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 56 tackles, Quinton Jefferson has two sacks and Tedric Thompson has two interceptions.
The Ravens are 2-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 7-23-1 ATS in their last 31 games in October and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Seahawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The Ravens are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the home team is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The over is 12-3 in Seahawks last 15 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Ravens last 5 road games.
The Baltimore Ravens have covered five of their last six games as a road underdog. The Seattle Seahawks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games as a home favorite. The Ravens have been very shaky over the last month, which includes losses to the Chiefs and Browns, while needing overtime to beat the Steelers and only beating the lousy Bengals by six points. Four of the Seahawks five victories have been decided by four or less points, as they're going as far as Russell Wilson leads the way. There's a strong case to be made for either side, but I lean toward the Seahawks at home, as they've been the more consistent team up to this point and Seattle is still one of the tougher places to play. The Baltimore Ravens need to get their mojo back before I can trust them against quality teams.
