Detroit Lions @ Baltimore Ravens

The Detroit Lions are enjoying one of their best starts in franchise history. Sitting at 5-1 through six weeks, the Lions look every bit like a true contender out of the NFC. Jared Goff continues to impress, while the Lions’ defense is getting better and better every week.

The Ravens enter Week 7 at 4-2 after rebounding with a nice win over the Tennessee Titans in London last week. Baltimore’s defense has led the way. The Ravens are allowing the fourth-fewest points per game (15.2).

Baltimore’s defense matches up very well with the Lions offense. The Ravens are allowing the second-fewest passing yards per game, which should allow them to keep up with a Lions offense that is ranked fourth in passing yards per game. Their defense also tightens up in the red zone as they are the second most efficient defense in the red zone in the league.

Through six games, the Ravens defense leads all of the NFL in sacks with 24. This should help Baltimore contend with Detroit’s top-tier offensive line.

The Ravens’ defense should be able to neutralize this dynamic Lions offense. I would give the edge to Baltomore’s offense over the Lions’ defense with Lamar Jackson and company.

I think this is a great spot to fade the Lions and I love the Ravens to run away with this one.

The play: Baltimore Ravens -3

Miami Dolphins @ Philadelphia Eagles

Entering Week 6, the Philadelphia Eagles were one of the two remaining undefeated teams. After losing to the New York Jets, the Eagles are still 5-1 and one of the best teams in football. They still have an elite offensive line and quarterback as well as a very strong defense.

I think the Dolphins are overvalued here. Miami is 5-1, but the combined record of their schedule so far is 9-26. The best team Miami has played this year was the Buffalo Bills and they lost by four touchdowns. They barely beat the Los Angeles Chargers and beat the New England Patriots by only 7. To me, this Dolphins team is really good, but are a bit overrated.

I anticipate the Philadelphia Eagles getting back to their brand of football in this matchup. In their loss to the New York Jets, they threw the ball 45 times despite having the lead for the majority of the game. The Eagles need to get back to running the football behind their elite offensive line. This will shorten the game and keep Miami’s offense off the field. They should be able to do it successfully against a Dolphins defense that is ranked 20th against the run.

Philadelphia was built to win in the trenches. I think Philadelphia’s offensive and defensive lines will be too much for the Dolphins to handle.

The play: Philadelphia Eagles -2.5
