Matt O'Leary's Monday Night Football Same-Game Parlay: Baltimore Ravens vs. Indianapolis Colts
After a little scare in Week 3, the Baltimore Ravens bounced back with a more resounding 23-7 win over the Denver Broncos. This week, they return home to play host to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football.
Indianapolis finally got in the win column in Week 4 with a resounding 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. Will their luck continue into Week 5 or will Baltimore continue their winning ways? Here’s a three-leg same-game parlay for you to try for Colts vs Ravens.
Ravens -2.5 1st Half
Of the Ravens’ 11 touchdowns, seven have come in the first half of games this year. Indianapolis has just three offensive touchdowns in the first half of games this year in comparison. Last week against a quality Denver defense, the Ravens were able to score 17 points before the first half expired.
While the Colts' defense hasn’t let up a ton of yards, they sit just below average in terms of points ranking 17th in the league in points against. With Carson Wentz nursing two bad ankles and starting RB Jonathan Taylor limited with a knee, it could be a long day for the Colts offense.
Ravens over 26.5 Points
It’s been a couple of weeks since the Ravens cleared the 26.5 point number but it’s something they’ve done 12 times in their last 20 regular season games. This offense is built to score and while they were slowed down a bit the last two weeks, they return home where they normally perform much better.
In his career, Lamar Jackson is 18-6 at home and he has nine passing touchdowns to just two interceptions (with another two rushing touchdowns to go along with it) against AFC South opponents.
Ravens to win by 10+
The spread is 7.5 points in this one, but I see blowout potential. 17 times in Lamar’s career the Ravens have won by 15 or more points. To put that into perspective they’ve won just 11 games by 0-7 points.
When Baltimore wins, they usually win big and I just don’t see very many points coming for the Colts in this one. They’ve scored over 20 just twice this year and are 21st in football in points for on the season.
