NFL Pick for Monday Night Football in Week #12 (Ravens at Rams)
NFL PICK WEEK #12 - Monday Night Football
BY PROFESSOR MJ
PICK: Los Angeles Rams +3.5 vs Baltimore Ravens
Most sportsbooks have a 3-point spread, but MyBookie offers an even more enticing line on the Rams at 3.5. I hesitated between rating this play 4 or 5 stars. Considering how unbelievably hot the Ravens have been of late, I opted to go with 4 stars.
We all know how great Baltimore’s running game is. Good news for the Rams: their rush defense ranks second in the NFL in terms of yards allowed per rush and fifth in terms of rushing yards allowed per game. Overall, L.A.’s defense has been pretty stingy recently. Indeed, they have allowed just 12.8 points per game over their last five games.
The most important source of concern about the Rams is their offensive line, which is in shambles after suffering many injuries. They held up fairly well last week against a solid Bears defense. The running game did okay and they did not allow a single sack.
The Ravens will be traveling through three time zones for this game. This is also a non-conference road game and it might be hard to match last week’s level of intensity against the Texans.
Sean McVay’s squad will be at home for a third time over the past four weeks.
I am taking the Rams to either win this game, or to keep it close.
Enjoy this great game!
