Lock City: Thursday Night NFL Pick of the Week

15 – 11 – 2 on the season STILL IN THE GREEN!

Cleveland Browns (0-3) at Baltimore Ravens (2-1)

The Ravens have won 12 straight at home and I don’t see a scenario that keeps them from moving on to 13 this week. Cleveland sits near the bottom of the league rushing charts at just 87.3 per game and will not do any better against the Ravens. The Ravens have struggled defending the passing game this season, but have also faced three of the better passing teams in the league in Cincinnati, Philadelphia and New England. The Ravens are not a quick strike offense and tend to produce long drives spanning 8 or more plays. I see the Ravens focusing more on Ray Rice and the running game as they will not be forced to play catch up football against the young and inexperienced Browns. This doesn’t appear to be an exciting show for the NFL Network audience, but we will happily take a win at the betting counter with a low scoring contest. Under 43.5 points is the call here.
