The Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins head into week two of the preseason, hoping to shore up their rosters. While both teams were winners last week, they did so in a different fashion. The Ravens defense held down the Panthers in a 17-12 win, while the Redskins totally dominated the Bills, by a score of 42-17. After this week, one of the two teams will have a preseason loss.

NFL Betting: Baltimore Ravens @ Washington Redskins

Why To Bet On The Ravens

There has been much worry about the Baltimore Ravens secondary with Ed Reed sidelined for at least six weeks, and Dominique Foxworth lost for the season. That did not appear to be an issue in their win over Carolina. The first team defense did not allow Carolina to score any points and as a team, they kept the Panthers out of the end zone. They will look for that to continue against the Redskins. Starters should play more in this game and Joe Flacco should continue to shine. Flacco was eight-for-12 with 120 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown pass to Mark Clayton. He is looking more and more like an elite level NFL quarterback and that should continue this week against the Redskins. The Ravens will need more out of backup Marc Bulger, who finished five-for-12 with only 67 yards.           

Why To Bet on the Redskins

Total domination was the name of the game in the Redskins first preseason game under Mike Shanahan. Donovan McNabb’s debut as a Redskin was a success as he threw a touchdown pass on his second drive with the team. Overall, the Redskins showed that their depth can perhaps outplay most of the other teams in the NFL. Their 42 points was tops in the NFL in the first week of the preseason. Rex Grossman should see the bulk of the work again as the backup and the former Bears starter excelled last week, going 11-for-18 with 140 yards and two touchdowns. Second year back Ryan Torain, attempting to come back from injury problems, also ran hard, scoring a touchdown for 69 yards as he made claim to a spot on the Redskins roster.

How the Game Will Play Out

The Ravens may be the better team during the regular season, but that matters not in the preseason. While the battle between starters should last a bit longer, it isn’t until the third week when they will see a bulk of action. This battle is between the reserves and though Baltimore’s defense was stellar, the Redskins ran roughshod all over the Bills. They may not score 42 again, but they should get enough to take home the victory over the Ravens.
