The Baltimore Ravens are preparing to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in a battle between two of the top teams in the AFC on Sunday Night Football in Week 15.
The Jags’ season was saved when Trevor Lawrence miraculously avoided a long-term problem with his ankle injury, though he was not his best last week. The Ravens, meanwhile, are the first seed in the AFC and control their destiny.
We built a same-game parlay with our favorite betting picks from the impending Ravens vs. Jaguars matchup on SNF—let’s see how it looks.
Travis Etienne anytime TD scorer
Gus Edwards anytime TD scorer
Zay Flowers 45+ receiving yards
Trevor Lawrence 175+ passing yards
The Ravens are the better and healthier team. Although the Jags’ defense has impressed, Baltimore’s is the best in the league, and their offense dominates the ground and time of possession battle. Lamar Jackson is also taking great care of the football and led wins in seven of his last eight games.
Etienne’s numbers are slightly deceiving in terms of his overall impact on the offense, but he’s been very effective near the goal line. His ability to both catch and run the ball makes him a tough cover for opponents, especially linebackers, and he scored a touchdown in each of his last two outings. His nine rushing TDs on the year rank eighth in the league, and the Ravens defense gave up 31 points to the LA Rams last week.
Edwards lost some carries to Keaton Mitchell recently, but he still has 10 rushing TDs on the season. He was held out of the end zone the last two weeks but scored in five straight before that and is a major reason why the Ravens have the best running game in the league. The Jags normally struggle to defend the pass, but Baltimore’s commitment to running the ball, especially in the red zone, should help Edwards get back to his scoring ways.
An injury to Mark Andrews forced Lamar Jackson to find a new security blanket, and that appears to be Flowers. The first-round rookie leads the team in targets, receptions, and receiving yards, and caught six passes for 60 yards last week. Although he went under this total in the two weeks before, the Jags give up the second-most passing yards per game and just allowed Joe Flacco to rack up 311 last week.
A hobbled Lawrence managed to go 28-50 for 257 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions against the Browns’ outstanding defense a week ago. The Ravens also have a dominant defense, but Lawrence proved that he can still air the ball out, and he has not thrown for fewer than 175 yards a single time this season.
