The Indianapolis Colts travel to Baltimore to play in another exciting Monday Night Football game.
Our team of experts at VSiN has the game covered from all angles, with a market report from South Point oddsmaker Chris Andrews, along with a pick on the game from VSiN's Adam Burke and Dave Tuley and a prop bet from Ben Brown of Pro Football Focus.
Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens (-7, 46.5)
Market report from Chris Andrews: No move off my openers of Baltimore -7 and 46, but the public is all over the Ravens. They’re laying the 7, sticking the Ravens in pointspread and money-line parlay and playing the obvious teaser down to -1. Teasers like this can be big headaches for sportsbooks. Baltimore -1 (or -1.5/-2 if the line goes up) will be the last leg of this week’s teasers, but then the first leg of next week’s teasers. When Week 6 lines are up, bettors will pair Baltimore with any new options that come up. We’ll be rooting for the Colts, needless to say.
Burke: The Ravens are definitely fortunate to have an extra day to rest and recover. An injury-riddled roster overcame adversity against the Chiefs, only to nearly lose to the Lions the next week. Then Baltimore had to play in the elevation in Denver. Getting an extra day off is quite a luxury this week, as the roster continues to get healthier.
The Ravens could very well cover the full-game number here, but Baltimore -4 in the first half is what I’m keyed in on for MNF. The Ravens have outscored the opposition by five points per game in the first half so far and the Colts have been outscored by nearly four points per game in the first half. Frank Reich doesn’t seem to be a great coach in Indy, but we all know that John Harbaugh is absolutely one of the NFL’s best.
