The 3-0 Baltimore Ravens travel to Foxborough to take on the always tough at home 2-1 New England Patriots. The Patriots looked impressive in their win last week against the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore has been on a roll largely behind the play of sophomore gunslinger Joe Flacco and an always fierce defense. The first round draft pick out of Delaware, Flacco is the NFL’s fifth-highest rated passer while Tom Brady is 22nd. It is fair to say that the 2007 MVP has yet to find his groove as he’s 3 of 10 for 10 yards in the red zone, where the Patriots have scored two TDs in 10 trips. This game kicks off at 1:00PM EST time, below you will find betting lines, trends and predictions.

Baltimore vs New England Predictions:
Spread – As good as the Ravens have been playing, beating the New England Patriots at home is no easy task. The Pats have already seen the Ravens defense in week two facing former defense coordinator for the Ravens, Rex Ryan, who is now with the New York Jets. Look for Tom Brady to slowly return to his 2007 form. Baltimore has yet to beat New England in four tries, including two losses at Foxborough by a combined 44-6 score. Patriots win this one by a FG. Bet the Patriots to cover the 2 point spread.
Over/Under – Both teams bring high powered offenses that can pass the ball efficiently and also run the ball efficiently. The Ravens bring an offense that is averaging 430 yards per game and the Pats 395 yards per game. New England is trying to avoid its worst start since 2005, the year after its most recent Super Bowl victory. This one will be a low scoring game for the Ravens as the Pat’s defense will come out to prove they are better than third in the AFC. Bet the UNDER at -110 in this one.
