Betting market: The public isn’t buying into the idea of Lamar Jackson as a double-digit favorite. The abysmal Raiders are commanding 48% of spread bets 55% of the money at the time of writing (see live odds and data here).

The line hasn’t moved much, though, and sharp bettors are still weighing in on the spread. — Mark Gallant

Trends to know: John Harbaugh enters this game with an 81-81-8 regular season record against the spread as Ravens head coach.

One area where he’s struggled? When playing bad teams (won fewer than 25% of their games), Harbaugh is just just 4-10 against the spread (28.6%) since 2010, making him the least-profitable coach in the NFL in that spot, losing bettors six units. — Evan Abrams

According to our Bet Labs data, teams favored by double digits against bad opponents (won 25% of their games or less) have struggled to cover, going 105-132-5 (44%) ATS since 2003. — John Ewing
