Why The Ravens Will Cover

  • Over 27.5 -135
  • Under 27.5 +105

They went Over 27.5 and covered against both the Kansas City Chiefs as well as the Los Angeles Chargers. Both of them are in the top-15 in the league in scoring.

Why The Vikings Will Not Cover

Minnesota Vikings Total Points

  • Over 21.5 -105
  • Under 21.5 -125

As for the Vikings, they are on the complete opposite side of things in terms of hitting their Under. They have stayed Under 21.5 points three times this season and have failed to cover every time.

Also in those games, they saw the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, and Detroit Lions – each of which are allowing their opponents to score 22+ points per game.

With the Ravens allowing teams to score 23.4 ppg, signs are pointing to the Vikings not being able to cover the spread while staying Under their point total.
