Ravens vs Jets Prediction: Spread
Last season, the Baltimore Ravens were a below .500 team against the spread, finishing just 8-9-0. The team’s up and down performance vs the spread was disappointing, as they were the betting favorite in 11 of their games.
When playing on the road, Baltimore covered the spread just 38.0% of the time. These matchups resulted in a scoring differential of -5.0 points for Baltimore.
Last season, the Jets were a below .500 team against the spread, finishing just 6-11-0. This performance came while entering a majority of their games as the betting underdog. Overall, the New York Jets were favored just 1 time.
Like their overall ATS record, taking New York to cover the spread at home was a losing bet, as they covered at a rate of just 44.0%. In these games, New York had a negative average scoring differential of -16.88 points.
Heading into the game, the Baltimore Ravens are the heavy favorite to pick up the win. Even with the large spread, look for Baltimore to cover on the road. A key reason that the Ravens will go on to cover the spread is that the offense has an excellent matchup vs a New York defense that ranked 32nd in points allowed per game (29.6). Even though last year’s team finished with a below average scoring offense, look for them to come up with enough points to cover the spread.
Baltimore should find success through the passing game, as opposing quarterbacks put together a combined passer rating of 101.24 vs the Jets defense (2021-2022).

The Baltimore Ravens come into this season off a 2021-2022 campaign in which they finished with an over-under mark of 8-9-0.
The over under line of 45.0, is right in line with the team’s 2021-2022 average of 46.5 points. In total 10 of last season’s games had over-under lines set higher than this week’s number.

Last season, New York had an over-under record of 10-7-0. This week’s betting line of 45.0 is similar to the average over-under line of last year’s team at 43.94 points. However, 71.0% of their contests had betting lines set lower than this week’s figure.
