NFL Preseason Picks
Ravens -3.5 at WFT (BetMGM)
Raheem Palmer: The Baltimore Ravens haven’t lost a preseason game since Sept. 3, 2015. That means they’ve won 19 straight preseason games and are looking to break the NFL record for most consecutive preseason victories, which has stood for 59 years.
While Lamar Jackson is unlikely to play, the depth among this roster has allowed this team to overcome sitting many of their starters. They’ve dominated the preseason with defense, forcing six turnovers against the Saints in the preseason opener and allowing only three points to the Panthers.
While Washington will likely be playing Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke, their offense has mostly struggled throughout the preseason, and we should expect that to continue here.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has made it clear that this Ravens team wants the record, and based on on his track record in the preseason, it makes no sense to fade them here.
Oddsmakers have added a hook here, but they can’t make these numbers high enough. Lay the 3.5 points with the Ravens.
