Colts Vs. Ravens Spread, Odds, Picks And Trends: Expert Predictions For Week 5 Game On Monday Night Football

Baltimore won for the third consecutive week with a 23-7 decision over the Broncos. The Ravens started to find their defensive stride two weeks ago and continued to do so against Denver. Baltimore allowed a season-low 254 yards and held Denver to 3-of-14 on third down. Lamar Jackson topped 300 yards passing for the first time this season while Latavius Murray handled 18 carries for 59 yards and a rushing touchdown. Murray wasn’t all that efficient on the ground, but his 18 touches are the most by any Baltimore running back this year, indicating a possible end to the backfield timeshare. The Ravens opened as seven-point favorites against the Colts. Baltimore is 1-2 against the spread when favored.

The Colts picked up their first win by beating the Dolphins 27-17. A week ago, I said this team lacked offensive identity. It hasn’t quite established one, but Indianapolis looked its best when Jonathan Taylor had the ball. The second-year back turned 16 carries into 103 yards and a touchdown after his touches had dwindled in each of the previous two weeks. It also doesn’t hurt that the Colts’ defense continues to tighten up. They’ve had three straight games with multiple takeaways. Against Miami,  Indianapolis allowed 203 total yards with just 35 of those on the ground.
