  • The over/under for Saturday's NFL Week 16 game between the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Chargers (8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network) has been a consistent target of professional betting action.
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we look at how money from sharp bettors is affecting the Ravens-Chargers over/under.

Saturday’s NFL game between the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Chargers has attracted under money since the total opened at 45. This isn’t all that surprising when considering both the advanced metrics and injuries facing both teams.

Key offensive players, like Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen, are banged up for the Chargers.

And even if they do play effectively, Baltimore is uniquely positioned to slow down Los Angeles’s passing game via the Ravens’ second-ranked pass defense, according to Football Outsiders’ DVOA.

In fact, according to The Action Network’s public betting data, an incredible 91% of dollars wagered on the total have taken the under.

But is that money overwhelmingly comprised of casual bettors? Or are sharps contributing to such one-sided over/under betting?

Thankfully, the Bet Signals available at Sports Insights can quickly and easily determine how professionals are betting this game.
