The New England Patriots look for another win to improve to 9-0 and remain the Super Bowl favorites. The New England Patriots have won seven of their last 10 road games. Tom Brady is completing 64.7 percent of his passes for 2,251 yards, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. Brady has three or more touchdown passes in six of his last 15 games. Julian Edelman and James White have combined for 932 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Josh Gordon has 20 receptions. The New England Patriots ground game is averaging 95.3 yards per contest, and Sony Michel leads the way with 464 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, New England is allowing 7.6 points and 234 yards per game. Jamie Collins Sr. leads the New England Patriots with 44 tackles, Kyle Van Noy has 4.5 sacks and Devin McCourty has five interceptions.
The Baltimore Ravens look for a statement victory to build on their three-game winning streak. The Baltimore Ravens have won six of their last seven home games. Lamar Jackson is completing 63.3 percent of his passes for 1,650 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. Jackson has four touchdown passes and five interceptions in his last four games. Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown have combined for 775 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Willie Snead IV has 15 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 204.1 yards per contest, and Jackson leads the way with 576 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 22.3 points and 349.7 yards per game. Patrick Onwuasor leads the Baltimore Ravens with 30 tackles, Matthew Judon has four sacks and Marlon Humphrey has two interceptions.
The Patriots are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. AFC and 46-19 ATS in their last 65 games overall. The Ravens are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. AFC and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The underdog is 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings and the road team is 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The under is 7-3 in Ravens last 10 games in November. The under is 4-1 in Patriots last 5 games overall.
The New England Patriots have split their last 14 games ATS as a road favorite. The Baltimore Ravens have failed to cover seven of their last 10 games as a home underdog. The New England Patriots have shown no weakness up to this point, as Brady and the offense are clicking as usual and the defense has allowed no more than 14 points in all eight games. The Baltimore Ravens have been shaky at times, but they're playing their best ball of the season right now and have had an extra week to prepare for this game, which means guys such as Patrick Onwuasor and Jimmy Smith could return to that defense. The way to beat the Patriots is to dominate the trenches and be physical on both sides of the ball, and there's no better team built for that style than the Ravens. I get the Pats have to be favored based off reputation, but the Ravens have the style that gives th Patriots trouble. I'll grab the points and will also be on the ML for this game.
