The Baltimore Ravens had their hands full in Cleveland on Sunday, but they rallied to come back and beat the Browns 25-20 after trailing by 17 points. Just another day in Cleveland.
For some reason, the Jacksonville Jaguars were 3 point road favorites traveling across the country and to no ones surprise not only did they not cover, but they got pummeled along the way.
The Baltimore Ravens haven’t been a well oiled machine to start the year, but they find themselves 2-0 to start the season.
The Ravens quickly found themselves down 20-2 after the first quarter against Cleveland, but they slowly clawed their way back and eventually won the game. Just a typical, heartbreaking roller coaster of a loss for the Browns.
The concerning part of the Cleveland game was the fact that Cleveland was able to pass all over Baltimore.
Once Josh McCown injured his shoulder things changed, but Baltimore had a pretty poor defense and Jacksonville has a decent air attack.
The good news for Baltimore is that their offense got going in the air and Jacksonville isn’t afraid of giving up a big play or two.
Also, Jacksonville is poor against the run, we’ll see if Baltimore can get their run game going in this one.
It looked like, perhaps, this might be the year the Jacksonville Jaguars get over that hump and start competing in the weak AFC South. But, after two games, it looks like more of the same.
The Jacksonville defense hasn’t shown much improvement as they continue to get gashed in the run and their pass defense hasn’t been up to snuff either.
The bad news for Jacksonville is that they struggle against the run. They struggled last year and after two games this year that hasn’t improved.
Fortunately, for them is the fact that stylistically this does favor them a bit as Baltimore doesn’t run the ball all that well. So, we’ll see what gives in this one.
Cleveland was able to throw the ball around on Baltimore and that’s one thing Jacksonville excels in. They are usually down big and they have to throw the ball.
They have plenty of reps in that department and they should have success throwing the ball in this one.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Over 47.5
The spread is a pick ’em, but I wouldn’t touch it. Both teams are heavily flawed right now and I don’t trust either team.
However, if I had to make a pick, I’d lean towards the Jaguars winning for a couple of reasons.
One: the Jaguars are at home and the Ravens are coming off an emotional road win. Two: this is the NFL. As of now, the vast majority of teams have started the year 1-1.
That’s just how the NFL likes it all teams being average; that’s the way the system is set up the more teams around .500 the better.
The best bet I see in this one is the over.
The line is 47.5 and both teams feature pretty good offenses and their defense’s aren’t afraid of giving up huge chunk plays that eventually lead the scoreboard getting a workout.
