The Baltimore Ravens look to go 3-0 for the first time since 2009 when they visit the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in an NFL Week 3 matchup at EverBank Field. The Ravens remained undefeated with a 25-20 win in Cleveland last weekend, while the highly touted Jaguars remain winless following a 38-14 blowout loss in San Diego.
– Shark Bites
- The Ravens are 0-3 ATS in their last three games against the Jaguars.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Ravens’ last five games against the Jaguars.
- The Jaguars are 6-1 SU and 7-0 ATS in their last seven games at home after a loss at home.
The Ravens have opened the season strong, shutting down a vaunted Buffalo Bills offense in a 16-9 Week 1 win as 3-point favorites. That raised expectations following dismal 5-11 campaign in 2015. However, Baltimore’s defense faltered in Cleveland, surrendering 247 first-half yards and spotting the Browns an early 20-2 lead.
Baltimore tallied 23 unanswered points after recess to claim the win last weekend. But their struggles were reminiscent of last season, when they posted just two straight up road wins, and a disappointing 5-9-2 record overall against the spread.
The Jaguars kept it close in a 27-23 Week 1 loss to Green Bay, covering as 4.5-point underdogs, but fell flat against the Chargers, taking 14 penalties in an undisciplined performance. Jacksonville is 3-2 SU, 4-1 ATS, in their past five against Baltimore, but cannot afford to fall behind a Ravens squad that has surrendered just 17 points per game over their past four.
