Ravens vs Chargers Has Rare High Total

Question marks surround both the Baltimore Ravens and the San Diego Chargers ahead of their Week 8 meeting this Sunday, but sportsbooks are not questioning that these two teams will be putting up a lot of points. The total for the game is currently set at 50.0, a rare sight this season as it will only be the eleventh game this year to close at 50.0 or higher.

If trends hold true the Ravens and Chargers may struggle to top 50 points, as the previous 10 games this season to close with the total of 50.0 or higher have an OVER/UNDER record of 2-7-1.

Of the 10 games to post a closing total of 50.0 or higher, the average combined score has been 45.6 points.

Both the Ravens and the Chargers have average offenses, with San Diego averaging 23.6 points per game and the Ravens tallying 23.0. However, both of their defenses rank in the bottom seven in the league in points allowed with the Chargers allowing 28.3 ppg and the Ravens allowing 26.9.

Neither team has had a total hit the 50.0 point plateau this season, but the Ravens visited the Arizona Cardinals with a closing total of 49.5 this season. That game went UNDER.
