Why Bet on the Green Bay Packers?
The Packers have shown vulnerability without their home crowd. Their three losses happened on the road and playing in front of a roaring M&T Bank Stadium will test their mental toughness once again. Nevertheless, they still have the upper hand on paper with a plethora of talent running the squad.
The visitors enter the game hoping to overrun the Ravens’ offense with defensive prowess. True enough, they hold one of the best defensive records in the league right now. The team limits opponents to 20.9 points (seventh) and 323.6 total yards (sixth) per game. They do well against rushing and passing plays, holding opponents to 105.2 rushing yards (ninth) and under 219 passing yards (ninth) per game.
Head coach Matt LaFleur does enough to keep his team well-oiled on offense. They are by no means a solid rushing team. However, the Packers sit on impressive passing statistics. The team averages 253.8 passing yards (ninth) per game in 14 weeks of football.
Starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers is questionable for Sunday’s game due to an illness. Jordan Love is expected to take the position from the 38-year-old. In addition, running back Aaron Jones (knee), wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back), and left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) are added to the list due to injury.
Why Bet on the Baltimore Ravens?
The Ravens have some work to do against an imposing Packers team. What the team brings to a table are solid rushing statistics on offense and defense. This should be interesting to watch knowing that the challengers also bear one of the best rushing defenses in the league today.
The hosts average 23.4 points (16th) per game. They have a significantly better yards-per-game record at 388.0 (fifth). This comes from an average of 243.2 passing yards (12th) and a commanding 144.8 rushing yards (third) per game record. This puts the Packers to the test which fans look forward to.
On defense, the Ravens also have a lot to give. The team allows 21.8 points (tenth) and 351.5 total yards (18th) per game. Rushing security is one of the ace cards of the hosts in this game. They lead the league in opponent rushing yards per game at 85.5. Additionally, the team limits opponent rushes per game to 21.7 (second). These numbers are enough to limit the Packers’ rushing plays.
The Ravens have seven players on the questionable list for Sunday’s game. Lamar Jackson’s uncertainty calls Tyler Huntley to step up and take charge. Meanwhile, Marquise Brown (illness), Patrick Ricard (back/knee), Alejandro Villanueva (knee), Ben Powers (foot), Patrick Mekari (hand), and Calais Campbell (thigh) are doubtful as well.
