Best early bet for NFL Week 12: Baltimore Ravens -4 over Los Angeles Chargers (-110)
It’s time – or perhaps even past time – to recognize the Ravens as legitimate Super Bowl contenders. They may not have the most electric roster outside of quarterback Lamar Jackson, but with Jackson running the show on offense and a stout defense from top to bottom this team is as well-rounded as it gets. Baltimore is now 8-3 following Thursday’s 34-20 victory over Cincinnati.
Up next for head coach John Harbaugh’s squad are the Chargers, who are 4-6 and have lost 4 of their last 6. They appeared to lose Joey Bosa to a significant injury in Week 11, too. The Ravens also have the benefit of a long week since they just played on Thursday Night Football. I think the visitors can win this game by at least a touchdown.
