Week 12 of the NFL will continue on Sunday, November 27, and we have this conference tilt in Florida, so make sure you act quickly and get the best Ravens vs. Jaguars betting pick and odds.
Baltimore is searching for the fifth consecutive victory when they visit Jacksonville at TIAA Bank Field. The Ravens are 4-point favorites on Bovada Sportsbook, while the total is set at 43.5 points. These AFC rivals haven’t met since 2020 when the Ravens secured a massive 40-14 win at home.
Ravens beat the Panthers in a low-scoring affair
The Baltimore Ravens (7-3-0, 4-5-1 ATS) recorded their fourth win in a row, even though they scored a season-low 13 points against the Carolina Panthers at home. Luckily for the offense, the defense displayed its best performance of the year as it allowed a season-low three points, so Baltimore celebrated a 13-3 W in the end. The Ravens forced three turnovers and committed only one in return, which also played a crucial role in this win.
Lamar Jackson completed 24 of 33 passes for 209 yards and an interception. It was the second time of the season he didn’t throw for a TD and his first INT in four games. However, Jackson did score Baltimore’s only touchdown of the game, on the ground, while Kenyan Drake led the team in rushing yards with 46 on ten carries. Demarcus Robinson had the best game of the campaign as he caught nine passes for a game-high 128 yards, while Mark Andrews chipped in 63 yards on six receptions. Defensively, Jason Pierre-Paul and Marlon Humphrey each had an interception, while Patrick Queen dominated with a game-high 12 tackles.
CB Kyle Fuller (ACL), T Ja’Wuan James (Achilles), DT Michael Pierce (biceps), S Marcus Williams (wrist), and RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) are out indefinitely. QB Lamar Jackson (hip), T Ronnie Stanley (ankle), RB Gus Edwards (hamstring), and S Kyle Hamilton (knee) are questionable to play against Jacksonville on Sunday.
Jaguars returned to losing ways
The Jacksonville Jaguars (3-7-0, 3-6-1 ATS) snapped a five-game losing skid with a home victory over the Las Vegas Raiders, but they returned to losing ways with a 27-17 road defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Jags trailed 20-0 at some point, and even though they forced three turnovers and made zero on the other end, the Chiefs’ offense was too much for them to handle.
Trevor Lawrence completed 29 of 40 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns. Given the Jaguars had to play from behind early on, Lawrence attempted plenty of passes and the team neglected the run offense, so the team-leading runner Travis Etienne Jr. recorded only 45 yards on 11 carries. Christian Kirk was excellent in the air and got 105 yards with two touchdowns on nine receptions. This was Kirk’s best display since his arrival from Arizona. Foyesade Oluokun was the most active Jaguar on defense with seven tackles.
Jacksonville acquired WR Calvin Ridley from the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-round pick. Still, Ridley has been suspended for the entire season, due to betting on NFL games in the 2021 season.
- 6-2 ATS in the last eight games following an ATS loss
- 4-1 ATS in the last five road games
- 6-1 ATS in the last seven games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game
- 5-11 ATS in the last 16 home games
- 1-4 ATS in the last five games following an ATS loss
- 2-8 ATS in the last ten home games vs. a team with a winning road record
Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Pick
The outcome of this game will largely depend on Lamar Jackson’s availability. He didn’t practice on Thursday as he’s been slowed down with a hip injury, but we all know that Jackson is a tough guy and he will not miss a game if he has at least a 50% chance to play. Baltimore didn’t play well last week but still got away with a win, while Jacksonville is coming off a bye week, so the Jags could pose a threat to the Ravens in this one. Still, I am going with Baltimore’s sturdy defense that allowed just 20 points in the last two games to prevail on Sunday.
Pick: Take the Ravens at -3.5 (-119)
The aforementioned Baltimore defense is allowing 19.9 points per game, while the Jags also have a solid D that is allowing 20.5 ppg. The biggest reason I am going with Under in this one, regardless of Jackson’s availability, is the fact that the Ravens surrender just 86.4 rushing yards per game to their opponents, and Jacksonville prefers running over passing. The same can be said for the Jags’ defense, so I expect to see a low-scoring affair. Under is 5-2-1 in the last eight H2H meetings; Under is 6-1 in the Ravens’ previous seven games overall, while Under is 4-0 in the Jaguars’ last four games overall.
Pick: Go Under 45.5 points (-133)
