The first Thursday night game (outside of opening week) is here and will be for the rest of the season. So if 13 hours of games on Sunday and Monday just isn’t quite enough, you’re in luck.
Baltimore Ravens (+1) at Atlanta Falcons (-1) OU – 44 pts
The Ravens are coming off a huge win at home over the Dolphins, who have been a good road team over the past few seasons. They’ll be coming into Atlanta on a short week for this Thursday night game. Falcons won their game on Sunday, but Josh Freeman for TB almost had another big come from behind 4th quarter drive to add to his resume.
Not only is Atlanta one of the best home teams in the NFL, but they get this week at home on short rest in prime time.
Vegas has Atlanta as -1 point favorites, and I’ve got them as a slightly larger 62% favorite at -2.43. So The pick is for the Falcons to beat the Ravens giving 1 point.
