NFL Monday Night Football Selection

***Ravens -4   ***Under 50.5

With Raiders RB Josh Jacobs downgraded to questionable for the Monday night matchup vs the Ravens, the dynamic of the Raiders offense may change a bit. This change falls right into the Ravens’ strength – the defensive backfield, who I expect to be that much more aggressive given that Las Vegas’ stud RB will be out or potentially not at 100% if he plays. The Raiders air attack relies heavily on their run game keeping opposing linebackers and defensive backfields honest. Not having Jacobs fully cranked will sting. The Ravens were 70% to the under (including playoffs) on the road last year and the hit to the Raiders offense tonight falls in line with that trend.  In their last six games as a favorite, the Ravens are a perfect 6-0. The Raiders were 4-4 ATS last season at home, so there is minimal ATS home field advantage for Las Vegas. Lay the 4 and expect some scoring, but not enough to clear 50.5.
