Las Vegas oddsmakers have installed the Baltimore Ravens as two point favorites for their Week 11 matchup against the Packers in Green Bay. The point total is set at 38, representing a final score of 20-18 Ravens.
Baltimore will enter this contest coming off a much needed bye week. They have dropped five of seven games since Week 2. The extra rest will aid several Ravens who were dealing with nagging injuries, the team should be relatively healthy for the stretch run.
Conversely, Green Bay is a banged up team. Superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers, offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga and cornerback Quintin Rollins are all on injured reserve. Tailback Aaron Jones will be held out due to injury, fellow running back Ty Montgomery, safety Morgan Burnett, cornerback Kevin King and quarterback Brett Hundley are also listed as questionable to play.
The Packers halted a three game slide in Week 10 with a 23-16 victory over the Bears in Chicago. Green Bay has been a below average team this season, their offense ranks 23rd and their defense ranks 24th in the league. This game will offer another opportunity for the Ravens defense to dominate.
As for trends, the Packers are 8-1 against the spread off a divisional win since 2015. Baltimore will be looking to reverse their struggles against the NFC. They have covered just one of their last nine contests against NFC competition. Green Bay leads the all-time series between these franchises with a 4-1 record, including 3-0 at Lambeau Field.
