New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens: Point spread and odds

The point spread, odds and betting preview of the Monday night football game New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens.

New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens: Point spread and odds In Week 13 the unbeaten New England Patriots (11-0) will travel the short distance to visit the Baltimore Ravens (4-7) in their conquest for the perfect record this season. There is little hope in the hearts of the Ravens fans this Monday, but the betting companies are taking the lesson from the Patriots last week's game against the Eagles and are posting relatively conservative betting numbers on this football matchup. At the online sportsbook Bodog Sports, the point spread on the New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens game is currently sitting at only -20 points chalk the Pats and the expected total is posted at 48.5 points. When you consider that the point spread on the Patriots last week reached record numbers across all sportsbooks, the -20 points spread posted this week against the Ravens and their 5-game losing streak is relatively small. The betting odds on the Patriots vs. Ravens game at Bookmaker are also shy compared to last week. The Pats are odds favorite to win with line -1600 and the line on the Ravens is +1050.

 The New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was upgraded to probable after the right shoulder injury and will likely play in the game against Baltimore. The Ravens quarterback Steve McNair, however, was last posted as out for Week 13, along with wide receiver Demetrius Williams. Tight end Todd Heap, cornerback Chris McAlister and safety Gerome Sapp are all questionable for the game against the Pats, but the rest of the Baltimore's injuries have been upgraded to probable, including LBs Jarret Johnson and Gary Stills, as well as running back Willis McGahee. Keep in mind that New England is 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games on the road and Baltimore is 0-5 against the spread in its last 5 games. Considering this and the injuries in the Ravens team, the New England Patriots should be able to cover the -20 point spread this time around.
