The Baltimore Ravens had their perfect home record snapped in a 13-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday night, one that bumped them out of a tie for first place in the AFC North, one game back of the black and gold. The Ravens had a tough time moving the ball against the league’s top-ranked rush defense, but should be able to do a better job against a Houston Texans’ group that ranks near the bottom of the league.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Baltimore – 3.5

The Texans have allowed an average of 287.4 passing yards per game this season, the biggest reason why they have lost five of their last six. Houston has allowed at least 29 points in each of those losses, falling two games game of the Jacksonville Jaguars for first place in the AFC South.

Why To Bet On The Ravens

Baltimore’s defense wasn’t to blame in the loss to the Steelers, as the Ravens held them to 288 yards and 13 points. However, for the second straight week, Baltimore struggled to move the ball on offense, failing to reach the 100-yard mark in back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Ravens have combined for 27 points in their last two games, which is less than the 28.7 they averaged in their previous six. They should have an easier time moving the ball against the Texans’ defense, which ranks 11th against the run, and a league-worst 32nd against the pass. Fullback Le’Ron McClain will be back in the football betting lineup as well, and if the running game can get going that should open things up for Flacco.

Why To Bet On The Texans

Houston’s defense has surrendered 400 or more yards in three of their last four games, and ranks near the bottom of the league in overall defense. Still, the Texans are just two games back of the Jacksonville Jaguars for first place in the AFC South, and if they can bounce back with a solid effort in front of their home crowd on Monday night football, he potential is there to close the gap even more. Houston ranks in the top-ten on offense in both rushing and passing yards, but will be tested against a tough Ravens’ defense. The Texans will find the proper balance moving the ball on the ground and through the air, to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

How The Game Will Play Out

Despite that the Ravens have played great football this season, and are coming off a crucial loss, Houston is too talented to lose their sixth game in seven weeks at home on Monday Night Football, at least by a bigger margin the listed line. Baltimore may bounce back with a win, but the Texans will keep it close enough to cover the spread and have a fighting chance in the game’s final minutes.
