The Line: Baltimore Ravens -5.5 -- Over/Under: 45.5
The San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens meet Sunday in NFL action at M&T Bank Stadium.
The San Francisco 49ers look for their 11th victory to keep pace for the top seed in the NFC. The San Francisco 49ers have won all five road games this season. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 68.8 percent of his passes for 2,731 yards, 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Garoppolo has 24 touchdown passes in his last 13 games. George Kittle and Deebo Samuel have combined for 1,193 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Kendrick Bourne has 21 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 145.6 yards per contest, and Matt Breida leads the way with 542 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 14.8 points and 248 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 81 tackles, Arik Armstead has 10 sacks and Richard Sherman has three interceptions.
The Baltimore Ravens look for a statement win to build on their seven-game winning streak. The Baltimore Ravens have won three straight home games. Lamar Jackson is completing 66.9 percent of his passes for 2,427 yards, 24 touchdowns and five interceptions. Jackson has 17 touchdown passes and five interceptions in his last eight games. Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown have combined for 1,162 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns while Nick Boyle has 24 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 210.5 yards per contest, and Jackson leads the way with 876 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 19.7 points and 322.7 yards per game. Patrick Onwuasor leads the Baltimore Ravens with 46 tackles, Matthew Judon has seven sacks and Marcus Peters has three interceptions.
The 49ers are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games in Week 13, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games on fieldturf. The Ravens are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games on fieldturf and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in 49ers last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Ravens last 7 games following a ATS win.
The San Francisco 49ers are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Baltimore Ravens are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite. Those two trends aside, I'm not stepping in front of these Baltimore Ravens, a team that's topped 40 points in each of the last three games and has allowed no more than 20 points in each of its last six games. Yes, the San Francisco 49ers continue to prove us all wrong and have an elite defense of their own, but the Ravens are the best team in football right now and are firing on all cylinders. As long as the number is below a touchdown, I'm riding the Ravens until they cool off. If they cool off.
