How To Bet On Ravens Redskins – Battle Of The Beltway Arrives In Skins-Ravens Clash

The Washington Redskins have surged into the NFC playoff picture. Playing at home, they're going to have a world of confidence against an uncertain Baltimore Ravens ballclub.

Baltimore Ravens @ Washington Redskins – Sunday, December 9     
Sport betting line: Ravens -1

Why Baltimore Will Win

When football betting gurus go over the week of games in the NFL, they are going to make the case for the Ravens in fairly simple terms: This is a team that knows how to win and persevere in December. Baltimore is familiar with the grind of a long season. The Ravens are a veteran club that regularly makes the playoffs and knows exactly what is at stake when it takes the field in a week 14 or week 15 kind of situation. Yes, the Ravens lost last week, but they lost to one of the best defenses in football, the one possessed by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Washington Redskins have a banged-up unit that cannot match the Steelers in terms of sheer quality. The Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco have picked themselves up and dusted themselves off many times before. This is a tunnel-vision team that is and has been able to rebound from various setbacks over the years. The Ravens will forget about that Pittsburgh loss, focus on this game, and get back on the beam against the Redskins. Baltimore knows that it must win this game to stay in the lead for the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.

The Ravens know that they have already beaten New England, a team which is tied with Baltimore for second place in the AFC. The Ravens know that they will host Denver – also tied with Baltimore and the Patriots – later this month. Therefore, as long as Baltimore can keep pace, it will be in position to get that No. 2 seed and a first-round playoff bye. The stakes are high, but the Ravens can deal with the pressure.

Why Washington Will Win

Even if you don't care for online casino games, you have to admit that watching Robert Griffin III is always a fun and entertaining experience akin to watching the next set of cards come up in a contest of chance. What will Griffin do next? He passed and passed the ball on Thanksgiving Day, punishing the Dallas Cowboys with his rifle of a right arm.

On Monday Night Football against the New York Giants, Griffin won with his legs. He wore out the Giants' defensive ends with his raw speed, confusing the Giants just enough with read-option concepts installed by Washington head coach Mike Shanahan and his son, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. The Redskins have found the package of plays that enables Griffin to be effective. Baltimore's defense has not seen a player with Griffin's full toolbox of skills, and this adjustment will be very hard for the Ravens to make.

Who Will Win

It’s very possible that Griffin will steal the show, and since Baltimore doesn't regularly game plan for a quarterback of this nature, the sense here is that Washington will be able to score a lot of points against the Ravens. Take the Redskins here.
