Expert Top Pick of the Day: Baltimore Ravens vs Miami Dolphins

Expert Top Pick of the Day: Baltimore Ravens vs Miami Dolphins

Tonight is football night, and the impressive Ravens are on the road against a very damaged Dolphins, who are doing anything they can do to survive. Baltimore has had a very convincing run this season and has their QB Lamar Jackson in the conversation for MVP. 

He’s ready to fight for the award against other high caliber players, including Tom Brady and Kyle Murray. They, too, have been tearing defenses down with great accuracy in the passing game or the versatility to run the ball when it is most unexpected. 

The Ravens are currently 6-2 and are first in the powerful AFC North, which is always challenging, but has been under their dominance so far. The Dolphins, on the other hand, are last in the AFC East and are still having a lot of difficulties finding the answer to the situations with QB Tua Tagovailoa still injured and replacement QB Jacoby Brissett. He’s doing his best to hold on and alleviate some of the pressure.

Baltimore Ravens vs Miami Dolphins Schedule

  • Date: Thursday, November 11
  • Time: 8:20 PM ET
  • Location: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL

Baltimore Ravens Scoring Show

The Lamar and Ravens show is coming to Miami for their next scheduled game to play a very downed opponent in the Dolphins, who have had the worst part at most of their games during this season. Baltimore is calling the shots nowadays, and they are completely established at the top of their Division without signs of losing any time soon. 

The Ravens are averaging 27.6 points per game and overwhelming defenses with their ground and pound-first in class rushing ability to run the ball with 161.6 yards. The MVP candidate QB Jackson has found very tight games recently. In those games, even when emotions run high, he still gets the upper hand at the end to put the Ravens up on the winning side.

Miami Dolphins Upset Hopes

It has been cloudy in Miami for quite some time, and this time the Fins have to face one of the top teams in the league. Even as the Dolphins are coming off a very important win against the Texans by an eight-point difference, they have also been struggling a lot. They haven’t figured out how to get the QB situation settled since the injury of their main franchise player Tagovailoa. 

Brissett has been doing his best to get the ball moving forward for Miami and is leading with 1,127 passing yards with five touchdowns and a completion rate of 64.4%. The substitute QB, since his early success recently, has put some doubts about the future of Tagovailoa with the Dolphins and is looking to continue to make a difference in a team that is currently 2-7 and has not shown anything until their last game.

Baltimore Ravens vs Miami Dolphins Odds Comparison

For the last five games these two have played, the Ravens have completely dominated all of them with a record of 5-0. Their last meeting was in 2019 when the Ravens beat Miami with a 49-point difference.

Godds Pick or Prediction of the Game

Baltimore will take the win in this game without any problem. Even when they have had very tight games recently, this could be a very different story as they will create some separation early in the game. This will make sure they avoid another win by a kick or even get into overtime.
