The Baltimore Ravens have a few injuries on offense, but Lamar Jackson is still at QB. And, cmon AFC North fans, it is Andy Dalton under center for the New Orleans Saints. There’s still a little piece of all of us that remembers why Joe Burrows is in Cincy. The Ravens bets and Monday Night Football tips are helped by the DraftKings promo, which is paying a sweet $200 with a $5 Moneyline wager.
This one is close. The experts are slightly leaning toward the Ravens. The lines are tight, which usually means a close game, especially on Monday Night Football.
We like the Ravens and lots of points.

Ravens Bets, Monday Night Football Betting:
Sure, the Ravens have buckled in the fourth quarter. Sure, the Saints are plucky. The line has shrunk from three points to two at DraftKings, and that gives you a smart play. We still say give the two points (-115), and we like the Over 46.5 (-110).
If you’ve been betting with WHN, you’ve hit a few home runs. This is another. Take your neighbors to the northeast and ride away with DraftKings money. Take the Ravens on the Moneyline and cash in the $200 bonus.
Lamar Jackson is one of the most prolific runners behind center in the NFL, but as ESPN analysts point out, the Saints have done pretty well against QBs who can scoot. One matchup that the Ravens can exploit is Saints’ injured CB Marshon Lattimore.
The Saints may have to choose between limiting Jackon’s feet and limiting his passing options. Either way, the Ravens come out winners.
Another reason we like the Ravens’ play is strength vs. strength. The Saints are a rushing team, and the Ravens stop the rush. We usually like the defense in that battle. Even if they crack a few times, the ball will be in Dalton’s hands. And the Ravens will likely have the lead, negating ground-gain opportunities.
Another advantage for the Ravens.
So, we like the Ravens across the board. Take the lower point spread (-2), take the Over (46.5), but most importantly, signup for the DraftKings promo and get some coin on the Moneyline. Bet $5 and win $200.
Now, if you like the Saints (or just despise Baltimore, we get it), there’s one bet to key on. If you LIKE the Saints in this, take Alvin Kamara and the OVER 61 yards. That’s not something we see — we think Baltimore will have the lead and the Saints running attack will be relegated to the sidelines, but if you have a gut feel on the Saints, take the Over here.
