The Ravens come in a 5 point favorites on the spread while the over/under on points scored is 44.5. SBR is taking the over on the number of points and it makes sense on why. With the Ravens' first preseason game going over that total and scoring 30 points themselves, it seems like a safe bet to expect the final score tally to come above 44.5.
If it's the preseason, and Chip Kelly's involved, we're betting the OVER. It's a delicious 8-1 since Kelly and his fast-break offense landed in Philadelphia. What shenanigans might we see from Tim Tebow this week?

It is expected that the starters will see a little more time playing in this preseason game, meaning that quarterback Joe Flacco and the rest of the Ravens' offense will probably have a few drives that they can put together. If they perform like they did last week against the Saints, the Ravens should have a relatively easy 6 points on the board with each drive they have.
Even when the starters left, the Ravens offense under Matt Schaub was more than formidable enough to put some points on the board. Plus the added bonus of the send and third string defense falling a little flat during the game will mean that the Eagles should be able to put some points up as well.
While we all expect the Ravens to win the meaningless preseason game, hopefully for those of you putting a few dollars on this one, you'll get a nice return on investment.
