The Indianapolis Colts find themselves in the Baltimore Ravens' sights for Week 5. Although they come off a win over the Miami Dolphins, the Colts might not be ready for Baltimore. Before their win, the Colts had gone 0-3 to start the season. If they want a chance at beating the Ravens they’ll have to have their best game ever.

The Ravens find themselves at the number two spot in the AFC North. Strangely enough, they follow just slightly behind the Cincinnati Bengals. In order to regain control of the division, they need a win against the Colts. They’ll also need the Bengals to lose this week, which could definitely happen. The most important question? Who’s the best bet?

Indianapolis Colts vs. Baltimore Ravens Preview (NFL Week 5)

The Colts found themselves getting a strike in the win column in Week 4. Now they’ll face a much stronger team than the Miami Dolphins. With four players questionable for the game, the Colts are in a tough spot. They’ll likely look to lean on Jonathan Taylor, their leading rusher, in this game as well.

The toughest challenge for the Colts is finding a way to stop Lamar Jackson. Plenty of teams have already tried this year, but only one succeeded. The Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Ravens in Week 1 and the Colts should try to emulate them. They focused on controlling the clock and didn’t give Lamar any time to breathe on offense.

The Ravens currently have two teams breathing down their neck for control of the AFC North. Both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns are 3-1, waiting for their chance to seize control. Considering the Ravens know what the stakes are, we expect a spectacular game from Lamar Jackson.

They can’t overthink this game though and will need to focus on their strengths. If they play into the Colts’ hand and turn the ball over, they could be in trouble. The good news is the Ravens have done well against the run, allowing on average 85.75 yards per game. If they can stop Jonathan Taylor, they can take this game.

Colts vs. Ravens Picks (Against the Spread)

Colts 23 - Ravens 35

The Colts are slowly building up momentum, it’s just unfortunate they face the Ravens in Week 5. Only one team has been able to beat them thus far and it’s one of the best in the conference. Right now, the Colts are far from being able to take down the Ravens, unless they’re absolutely perfect. Being perfect would require your starters at full health, something the Colts aren’t at.

The Ravens are under a lot of pressure right now, but they can handle it well. They know that Kansas City is struggling and that the entire AFC is up for grabs. This is the perfect time for them to take control with a win over the Colts. We expect Lamar Jackson to have the best game of this season on Monday night.

Extra Points

1. Baltimore returns home after a two-game road stretch.

2. Baltimore is 2-1 ATS in their last three games against the Colts.

3. The Baltimore Ravens are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games.

Best Bet: Baltimore Ravens -7
