Mike Lundin’s Ravens vs Giants NFL Free Pick October 16, 2016 – 1 PM EST
MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey
Line: BAL +3 / NYG -3; Total: 45
The Baltimore Ravens have scored just a total of 37 points through their last two games in home setbacks to Oakland and Washington. They’ll have a new offensive coordinator for this contest, but I don’t expect to see any significant improvements right away.
The Ravens have been doing alright at the defensive side of the ball though and are allowing only 17.6 points per game on the season. Here they’ll take on a New York Giants team that is coming off three consecutive defeats, and it managed only 16 points with a total of 221 yards of offense and just 14 first downs in a 23-16 loss at Green Bay on Sunday Night Football. They’ve scored more than 20 points just once this season.
Both Joe Flacco and Eli Manning have turned the ball over plenty of times with five scores and four picks each on the season. New York was without both of its top running backs against Green Bay and neither Shane Vereen (triceps) or Rashad Jennings (thumb) is 100 percent confirmed for this contest.
Under is 5-2 in Ravens’ last seven games overall with last season included and 4-1 in the Giants’ five games this season. I’m looking for a low-scoring game at MetLife Stadium Sunday afternoon.
Play: Under 45 Points
