Baltimore Ravens 10-2 (6-5-1 ATS) are playing Buffalo Bills 9-3 (8-3-1 ATS) on Dec 8, 2019, 1:00pm ET at New Era Field. The Bills opened at +7 in Vegas and the current line is BUF +6.
Who would have thought this match-up would be important going into the final weeks of the regular season but a win by the Bills could position them not only a top of their own division but maybe in the AFC as well especially if the rival Patriots lose again, but first they have to defeat the Baltimore Ravens who are the hottest team in football.
The Ravens are coming off of a victory over the NFC favorite San Francisco 49ers, and the Bills came off a huge victory themselves beating the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys.
Now, the pair match-up in what may be a playoff preview.

Betting Prediction and Pick
The Ravens and Bills are two of the hottest teams in the league right now, but Baltimore has been steadier all season and has beaten better opponents. They’ll keep that up this week against a surprisingly tough Bills team that just beat the Cowboys in Dallas on Thanksgiving. As good as the Bills are and have been of late, I think the Ravens are just simply too much to handle. The Ravens are clicking on all sides of the ball and unless they make a bunch of mistakes, I expect the Ravens to take care of business and cover the 6 point spread.
The Ravens should win this one, but I'm playing the Bills with the 6 points in what should be a closely contested matchup and the overs here are worth a look. Defense should be a huge factor in this game, but Jackson and the Ravens have scored a combined 57 points in two games against the leagues top two defenses, so this one should go over the 44 points today.
