The Baltimore Ravens (3-2) head to the Metrodome to tackle Brett Favre and the unbeaten Minnesota Vikings (5-0) in a Sunday match-up scheduled for 1:00pm ET. The Ravens will have to try and put last weeks fourth quarter loss to the Bengals behind them and come out strong against this undefeated Vikings team. The Ravens will need to be more discipline and keep the yellow flags off the field, over the last two games they have been called for 19 penalties, resulting in 161 yards, a few coming at crucial moments in the games. The Brett Favre story continues, after the miracle last second win over the 49ers in week 3, and beating his old team The Packers, Favre had another dominating game on the road in St Louis last week, and will look to keep it going against a tough Ravens Team this week. Betting lines, trends and predictions are listed below for this Ravens vs. Vikings week 6 match up.

Baltimore vs Minnesota Betting Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Ravens 23 @ Vikings 26
Spread Prediction – Lay it down on The Vikings to cover the spread this week. Expect this one to come down to wire in a close battle. The Ravens defense gave up its first 100+ rushing yards in 40 games last week when Cedric Benson ran for 120. Look for Adrian Peterson to be given the chance to do the same this week. I think the balanced attack of Favre in the air and Peterson on the ground will keep the Ravens defense guessing all game and will prevail, giving The Vikings the win and extending their undefeated year to 6-0. Bet on the Vikings to get it done and cover the 2.5 point spread (-110).
Over/Under Prediction – I like the total to go over the 44.5 points. Both teams combined have put up an average of 54.2 points per game. Both of these offenses have talent on the ground and in the air, watch for them to put up some points on the turf indoors at the Metrodome putting this one over the number. Bet on the OVER 44.5 in this game (-110) at Bodog.com.
