The Baltimore Ravens and Detroit Lions clash tonight on Monday Night Football
at Ford Field. Both teams are 7-6 this season. The Ravens beat the Minnesota
Vikings last week, while the Lions lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. A loss by
either team could prove to be very costly in terms of postseason play.
Baltimore is 5-7-1 against the spread this year, while the Lions are 6-7 ATS.
However, it should be noted that Detroit is just 2-5 ATS in its
last seven games. Furthermore, an interesting trend worth noting is that
the Ravens are just 1-8 ATS in their last nine games played in December.
Look for both teams to play tough as they continue to battle for their right
to play in the postseason. However, tonight is likely to be a difficult game
for the Ravens as they are just 1-5 on the road this season. Expect to see
Detroit win and cover the spread in this game.
SPORTS NETWORK CHOICE: Take Detroit at -6.5.
