  • The line has moved from Baltimore -5 to -4 this week.
  • Already without top running back J.K. Dobbins because of a season-ending ACL tear, Baltimore has now lost running back Justice Hill to an Achilles tendon tear.
  • Baltimore has covered in Week 1 in five straight seasons.
  • Lamar Jackson is 13-3-2 ATS in his career on the road (15-3 outright).
  • Overs were 13-3 in Las Vegas games last season with five straight overs to end the season and the total coming in at 50 here.
  • New York Times: "The Ravens lost depth at running back when the starter J.K. Dobbins and the reserve Justice Hill both sustained season-ending injuries in training camp. But quarterback Lamar Jackson still commands respect as a runner and passer, and Monday provides him and the team an opportunity to showcase the evolution of their scheme with the addition of the veteran receiver Sammy Watkins. Las Vegas gave up 389 yards per game last season, ranking 30th in the league. The unit hopes to have improved under the new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and defensive lineman Yannick Ngakoue, but the Ravens’ experience should give them an edge." 
  • CBS Sports: "Of course, the most important move they made on defense was hiring Gus Bradley as their defensive coordinator. The last time we saw the Ravens go up against a Bradley defense came in January 2019 when he was the defensive coordinator for the Chargers. In that game, which the Chargers won in an upset, Bradley befuddled Lamar Jackson and the Ravens by putting seven defensive backs on the field for most of the game. That's not to say that Bradley will do this again, but he's one of the smartest defensive minds in football, he's already schemed a plan to slowed down Lamar once and he's had all offseason to figure out how to do it again.If the Raiders do pull off the upset, Mark Davis should go ahead and give his new mansion to Bradley."
