Ravens vs. Dolphins Critical Trends

Baltimore is 7-1 straight up in its last eight games against Miami (edge: Ravens -290)

Ravens vs. Dolphins Best Bets Week 1

Baltimore will be one of the books biggest liabilities in Week 1.

Because the books are tempting gamblers by moving off the -7 to the -6.5, we are going to have to study the Dolphins closely in this one.

Last week’s roster sell-off completed an offseason purge that left the franchise well-positioned for the 2020 and 2021 drafts, at the expense of 2019.  The expectations are so low, Miami is just hoping to avoid going 0-16.  They are favorites to win UNDER 4.5 regular season games.  This makes backing the Dolphins at +6.5 difficult.

The Ravens on the moneyline is the closest thing to a guarantee, but the price is steep.  It's surprising that only 82% of the moneyline action is on Baltimore, all things considered.

The Associated Press notes:

The Ravens, favored by a touchdown on the road, had the NFL’s top defense in 2018, won the AFC North and reached the playoffs for the first time in four years. They’ve completed a transition at quarterback from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson, who took over last November and led Baltimore to a 6-1 finish.

The defense is again expected to make Baltimore a playoff contender, despite the loss of linebackers Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley and Za’Darius Smith in free agency, and the offense could be potent if Jackson is as dynamic as the Ravens hope.

We still have to focus on books taking the line back to Baltimore -6.5 after hitting -7, but we also have to acknowledge that this number was as low as -3.5.

It's foreseeable that the Ravens win by a field goal.  A Baltimore win of 4 to 6 leaves the books especially exposed.  In this scenario, one could have wagered on the Ravens as a -3.5 favorite and the Dolphins as a +6.5 underdog.  That's a win betting both sides.
