Last week, the Baltimore Ravens barely beat the Cleveland Browns despite QB Lamar Jackson only completing nine passes in that game and TE Mark Andrews posting zero receptions, the refs helping out with some questionable calls that gave HC John Harbaugh the win and the Ravens the AFC North for now.

Tampa Bay, on the other hand, lost embarrassingly to the hapless Carolina Panthers and their backup QB, a game in which Tom Brady’s offense only posted 3 points the entire game, the first time he has been kept from scoring a touchdown all season, a loss that has many NFL talking heads suspecting the Buccaneers of not being a good team on either side of the ball this year.

As for this bet, the Buccaneers have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine Thursday Night Football games and the Ravens are beginning to figure out how to let other players besides QB Jackson run with the ball, so take Baltimore to cover this spread here even though they will have to do it in visitor territory and against a Bucs team ready to earn a win.

Each of Baltimore’s last four games has gone UNDER the total points line, so that could be a sign that their offense is still gelling, and given that the Bucs only posted a field goal in last week’s loss, the under seems to make more sense here, but before you break open your betting kitty it might be a solid idea to do some research.

For example, let’s take a look at how well each team’s offense has been scoring this season, with the Baltimore Ravens offense so far averaging 25.9 points per game and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense averaging just 17.7 points per game, that total of 43.6 is still almost a field goal under what the odds makers are predicting these two teams will score together in Week 8.

Also take a look at how each defense is playing this season, with the Baltimore Ravens defense so far allowing an average of 23 points per game and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense allowing just 17.7 points per game, a total of 40.7 is well under what is listed for this wager, so take the under here and hope that these two teams stack up the way the current stats reveal.

Here’s a fun bet for fans of either team because it takes a bit of courage to put money down for an outright win with no points given either way and for the favored Ravens followers it would take a $225 bet to produce a $100 win plus the original investment, a wager that makes sense if you have a gut feeling about your Ravens.

For fans of the underdog Buccaneers who have lost four of their last five games, it only takes a $100 bet to win $265 if Tampa Bay pulls out a home win here, and anyone who has followed the GOAT QB Tom Brady for any amount of time might believe in his ability to manufacture a win here but what could hold him back is whether his playmakers are healthy enough to suit up and help him.

For Week 8, three Tampa receivers are listed as questionable due to injury including WRs Russell Gage (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee), and TE Cameron Brate (neck), whereas on the Baltimore side of the field only one player is listed as questionable for this one – OG Ben Cleveland (foot) – all reasons for any serious sports bettor to check each team’s injury status just before game time.
