This should be a fun one tonight and I see ALOT of points in this one. I think both teams could and look for California to keep up. There some very talented offensive players from both sides. So I think the over is the play here
M&T Bank Stadium plays host to Monday Night Football where the Baltimore Ravens meet the Indianapolis Colts in week 5 NFL action. The Ravens (3-1) are known for running the football and in this game are looking to rush for at least 100 yards for the 44th consecutive game. Indianapolis has won five of their last seven road games and their offense is finally rounding into form. The Colts began the season slowed by injuries to several starters and are just now developing some continuity. Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 103 yards and his 1st rushing touchdown of the season against the Dolphins last week. When Taylor rushes for 80 or more yards the Colts are 7-0, and I expect him to rush for more than 80 yards. Colts QB Carson Wentz is coming off his best game of the season and has completed 64% of his pass attempts with five TDs and just one interception. Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has still had turnover issues, and I expect that to continue in this game. The Colts are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Baltimore, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Take the Colts +7
The Lumen Field has an open roof so weather should be considered for today's game. It will be Mostly Sunny with 24% cloud cover and a 1% chance for rain.
The temperature is 56° with 52% humidity and winds at 6 mph NNW.
The Warhawks were one of the worst team in college last year, finishing at 0-10 including an 0-7 mark in Sun Belt conference play. The Warhawks do have a few positives going here this season - Terry Bowden has taken over as HC for Louisiana-Monroe and they have some experience back at QB and return four of five starters from the offensive line and all 4 of their receivers. Defensively, the secondary needs the most help as five different DBs from last year’s Warhawks team entered the transfer portal, but Adam Sparks transfers in from Missouri to slide in alongside Josh Newton and second-leading tackler from last season Austin Hawley. So the Warhawks have the makings of a team this year and should be much more competitive. Kentucky is a sub-par SEC team and will get points through the air today but just like the Tennessee failing to cover the big spread against Bowling Green earlier this week, I see this game setting up similarly.
Mike Foltynewicz(2-10) ERA: 5.77 - Foltynewicz allowed one run over six innings of work against the Athletics on Friday. His final line included two hits, two strikeouts, three walks, and a no-decision in a 4-1 loss to Oakland. Foltynewicz is a paltry 2-10 with a 5.77 ERA - he has also issued 31 walks and 80 strikeouts while yielding 31 home runs in 2021.
Marco Gonzales(3-5) ERA: 4.61 - Gonzales threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees. Gonzales allowed three hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Gonzales continued his streak of solid starts with five straight starts where he allowed three earned runs or fewer. He kept the Yankees in check but took the no-decision. Through two starts in August, Gonzales has a 0.75 ERA and 0.75 WHIP.
Pick: Let’s not overthink this one, you could never consider playing Texas with Foltynewicz on the hill. Gonzales has been stellar in last two starts will will stymie the anemic Texas offense (ranked 28th). Seattles wins a 6-2 type game, play the Mariners -1.5 RL here with confidence.
Looks like this is set up to be Kyle Gibsons first start with the Phillies. Gibson looked good the first half of the season with the Texas Rangers. His numbers started slipping, but I'm eager to see if he can pull out an A+ game now he is in the national league.
Giannis injury? Goddamm you guys have lost the entire season, most of the games "Without the star" it seems that's going to win the other team, but it almost never happens, that's a fuckin trap, 6 points r a lot of points, of course they'll cover even without giannis (Probably he'll be back for game 1) So i think this is a huge trap, let's go with the ez money
Take 6 or 7.5 points n let's goooo
Dallas has been overhyped - 0-5 ATS with Dak. Now that Dak is out, will the odds be more realistic? The hype has been there regardless of other injuries because 7 out of 10 people will bet â€œcowboysâ€ without even looking at the depth chart.
Andy Dalton Is good and the Dallas offense is good, kid of. The team is riddle by injuries and everyone seems to be trying to make a name for themselves, not the team.
These injuries may be the best thing for Dallas, they have to come together as a team - not a bunch of Rambos. Until that culture changes, Iâ€™m not betting on Dalls again.
This is a big time smelling salt moment for Baltimore. After getting beat down Monday night by Patrick Mahomes, the Ravens are going to be foaming at the mouth and ready take their frustration out on a really bad football team. Even though they struggled against the best player in the universe, their defense is still very, very good. And the task will be much easier against a quarterback like Dwayne Haskins. Baltimore is built to play from ahead, when they can run the ball and set up play action and option looks for Lamar Jackson. If the Ravens go up 14-0, this one could be 35-10 before you know it.
Putting $10 on the Ravens -21 alternate line for the hell of it.
This game sets up just like the Chiefs Texans game. Cleveland is Houston and Baltimore is KC...this spread should be 10 points. Cleveland may have legit defense this year, but there's just no containing Lamar Jackson and I think he's out to prove he's player of th
