Patriots vs. Ravens Sharp Report

The Patriots are steamrolling their way through the AFC, with the road to the Super Bowl set to go through Foxborough … again.

At 5-2, the Ravens are among the few realistic challengers in the conference, and professional bettors like the value with Baltimore on Sunday night.

New England opened as a 4- or 4.5-point favorite at most books across the market, but that number has dropped to a consensus of -3.5 at the time of writing.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and report sharp betting action in real-time, have triggered four smart money indicators on the Ravens at lines of +4.5, +4 (twice) and +3.5, confirming that wiseguys are behind the early spread movement.

Pro money is also responsible for an adjustment to the total as well, as sharps steamed under 46, explaining why that number now sits at 44.5.
