There is a legitimate chance this game could be finished in under two and a half hours considering both teams will be looking to run the ball right from the outset and keep the clock moving. It’s tough to overlook the Ravens here considering their 12 game winning streak and they have MVP-elect Lamar Jackson looking to continue his breakout season. The big question surrounding them though, is what that week off did to their momentum and whether or not it allowed some of the banged up players like running back Mark Ingram the opportunity to get healthy. Coaching is also a big question with the Ravens with John Harbaugh having a history of getting flustered in big moments when things don’t go exactly to script.
Tennessee will be full of confidence after beating New England in Foxborough last weekend but you have to wonder whether or not they will be able to bring that same level of intensity to this game. Titans coach Mike Vrabel had plenty of memorable battles with the Ravens as a player and his team will look to out-physical them here. He will also take solace in the fact the Ravens can be a little bit vulnerable to a strong rushing attack, in their two losses this year they gave up 140 and 193 rushing yards and their other close game saw the 49ers rush for 174 yards. That has me thinking they should be able to keep this close but the number of influential playmakers on the Ravens is stopping me from backing them outright. I am going to back the under as well since the number of possessions in this game should be quite low with both teams looking for long, sustained clock killing drives.
That’s not the only play I’ve got for this game though, I’ll take a pair of anytime touchdown scorers to look for a couple of extra plays. To start off with I have to back Jackson to score a touchdown, he is the most dynamic player left in the playoffs and the Titans will have a hard time containing him in the red zone. Then it’s worth backing the most in form player left in the playoffs, Derrick Henry, regardless of how short of a price he is at.
Tip: Baltimore Ravens at $1.21
