Redskins vs Ravens odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Washington Redskins have a decent rotation at quarterback, which could give them an edge in this contest. Behind Jason Campbell, the Redskins have Todd Collins, Colt Brennan and Chase Daniel. The problem for Washington in training camp has been a porous offensive line. That will be exposed quickly against this daunting Ravens defense.

The Ravens also have a decent setup at quarterback with Joe Flacco, Troy Smith and John Beck. More importantly for the Ravens is the depth they have at running back. Ray Rice has been phenomenal in training camp and he’ll get his first taste of game action on Thursday. With Willis McGahee and Le’Ron McClain behind him, the Ravens should have lots of rushing yards in this contest.

Redskins vs Ravens odds maker breakdown: Defense

The Redskins will unleash Albert Haynesworth for the first time, but he’s got some knee issues. He’s probable for the contest but he likely won’t stay out very long. The Redskins don’t have a ton of depth on defense anywhere so don’t expect much from them after the starters are out.

Meanwhile, the Ravens are a defensive juggernaut and also play mean defense. Even when Ray Lewis and the first-stringers head to the bench, they’ll be yelling at the backups to get their act together.

Redskins vs Ravens odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

The Ravens are breaking in a new kicker, either Steven Hauschka or Graham Gano, which means the Redskins should have the edge in special teams. The Redskins have a couple of kickers on their roster as well in Shaun Suisham and Dave Rayner, but at least both are proven.

Return teams are even.

Betting Edge: Redskins

Redskins vs Ravens odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

The only notable injury in this contest is Ravens wide receiver Mark Clayton, who is out with a hamstring injury until early September. Demetrius Williams will take his place. The injury is notable because the Ravens on short on receivers to begin with. Sportsbook odds makers didn’t change the line much when he got injured, though.

Betting Edge: Redskins

Redskins vs Ravens betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The Ravens have the better team here and NFL betting fans should trust them. They have a good running game and, with the better defense to boot, that will be enough to cover the field goal.

STAN’S PICK: Ravens -3
