The 49ers and the Ravens are 2 of the best teams in the NFL this season, and they face-off this afternoon. This is clearly one of the more anticipated games this season, the Ravens’ high-powered offense colliding with the 49ers elite-level defense.
Some things to keep an eye on during this game:
- Weather- it’s going to be a cold one, temperatures in the low 40’s and high 30’s with rain, this type of weather should result in more rushing attempts
- Lamar Jackson’s decision making- will he make the right decisions on option plays, finding open receivers instead of intended receivers, Lamar has done well with that so far this season but the 49ers defense is capable of closing-in on gaps and open receivers
The Ravens are 5.5 point favorites in this one. Both these teams average over 30 points per game and allow under 20. I expect the Ravens to win this one at home by the score of 24-20. Consider that on my tab.
