Online NFL Betting Odds:
The Ravens fly into this Week 16 contest sporting an 8-6 record that ranks them 2nd in the AFC North. Right now the division is led by the 8-5-1 Pittsburgh Steelers, so Baltimore could very well end up winning the AFC North this season. All in all Baltimore has had an up and down season but have certainly played well enough to merit a spot in this year’s postseason. Lamar Jackson has taken over for Joe Flacco at quarterback and has fared pretty well. Some have argued that Flacco’s inconsistency held this team back and now they have a young and hungry quarterback leading the offense. They’ll need just that too if they’re to have a chance of upsetting the Chargers. At the end of the day the Ravens have a better defense but the Chargers offense can be a bit much.
Players to Watch: Joe Flacco (2,465 passing yards, 12 TD, 6 INT), Lamar Jackson (566 rushing yards, 3 TD, 7 F), and John Brown (681 receiving yards, 5 TD, 39 REC).
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers rush into this Saturday’s contest sporting an 11-3 record that ranks them No. 1 in the AFC West. Granted, LA could use a leg up over the 11-3 Chiefs who are also currently tied for the lead in the division. These two are 1-1 against one another this season so unless one of them slips in the remaining two games this division will be sorted via tie-breakers. Looking over the numbers it’s clear that LA has a sizable advantage on offense. At the same time their disadvantage on defense is minimal. Right now the Chargers are scoring 28.2 per game and are giving up 21.3 to their opponents. For comparison the Ravens score 24.4 and give up 18.1.
Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (3,951 passing yards, 31 TD, 8 INT), Melvin Gordon (802 rushing yards, 9 TD, 0 F), and Keenan Allen (1,074 receiving yards, 6 TD, 88 REC).
