After allowing the Miami Dolphins to score with 14 seconds left, the Baltimore Ravens fell to 1-1. This was an awful performance by the Ravens defense and one we hope not to see again. This week, they face the New England Patriots, who are going through their own struggles. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh better have his defense up to par when they take on Bill Belichick.

With a record of 1-1, the Patriots enter into this game coming off a 17-14 win. It was a hard-fought game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it resulted in a win. This game against the Ravens will be a tough test, especially for the Patriots’ defense. Last week they gave up only 14 points, but the Ravens have a much better offense. So, who’s the best pick in week 3?

Ravens vs. Patriots Betting Preview and Trends

Lamar Jackson had a great game against the Miami Dolphins, but his defense fell apart. He went 21/29, throwing for 318 yards and 3 touchdowns. By the end of the first half, the Ravens had a 28-7 lead on the Dolphins. The question is, how did they surrender such a large lead?

Even by the end of the third quarter, the Ravens had a 35-14 lead and should’ve had the game won. However, the fourth quarter is where the Ravens' defense fell apart. Allowing 21 unanswered points, the Ravens saw their lead diminish quickly.

The Ravens went downfield and kicked a 31-yard field goal to go up 38-35. Unfortunately for them, the Dolphins went down the field and scored with 14 seconds left. In week 3, the Ravens better get their defense together; allowing 21 unanswered points is a recipe for a loss.

The New England Patriots had a better outing, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-14. Mac Jones threw for 252 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Earning 376 yards on the day, the Patriots offense looked great through the first three quarters. After that, however, it declined.

The Patriots were unable to score a single point in the fourth quarter of the game. This led to such a close game as the Steelers scored right at the beginning of the final quarter. This week, the Patriots really need to focus on their running game, but the real focus should be on defense.

Finding a way to slow down Lamar Jackson is going to be vital to the Patriots success. In week 1, they faced Tua Tagovailoa, another mobile quarterback. Tagovailoa is less likely to be a threat on the ground than Lamar Jackson, but he still beat the Patriots.

Ravens vs. Patriots Picks

Baltimore is favored by only three points heading into this game. Although it’s not a large spread, we saw that they were unable to cover when they faced the Dolphins. They covered the spread in week 1, but last week was a sign that their defense needs a lot of work. The good news for Baltimore is that the Patriots don’t have a very strong offense.

Through the first two weeks of the season, the Patriots have averaged just 12 points per game. Considering they’ve had some offensive struggles, we have to go with the Ravens. Baltimore has proven they have an offense that can easily win games. They just need the defense to match.

Final Score: 27-13 (Ravens)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Baltimore's last 8 games on the road.

2. New England is 1-5-1 against the spread in their last 7 games.

3. The Patriots are 1-4 against the spread in their last five Week 3 meetings.

Best Bet: Baltimore Ravens -3 (-115) and Under 42.5 (-110)
