Football gambling fans will have an attractive choice of the visiting Baltimore Ravens or the host Carolina Panthers to handicap the odds NFL. The Baltimore Ravens are 2-0 straight up and 1-1 against the preseason football gambling line this year.
They went 1-1 against the over/under odds NFL board so far. Last week the Ravens held on for a 24-23 home win over the New York Jets, who failed to convert a 2-pointer at the end of the game. The Ravens failed to cover as 3-point preseason football gambling favorites as the game went over the total of 33.5.
The Carolina Panthers are 0-2 both straight up and against the preseason football gambling board. Both of their football gambling exhibitions went over the total. Last week the Panthers lost at Miami 17-27 as 2.5-point dogs. The Baltimore Ravens have looked sharp this preseason as they rank 4th in points scored and 2nd in total yards.
The defense has also been tough as Baltimore ranks 4th in points allowed and 2nd in total yards allowed. It is interesting to note that the success of the Ravens this football gambling preseason has little to do with their quarterbacks as Troy Smith has a 68.8 quarterback rating and Joe Flacco has a 73.2 QB rating.
The ground attack has been solid but unspectacular this football gambling preseason as Ray Rice has 51 yards on 13 attempts, Willis McGahee has 49 yards and 12 attempts, and Matt Lawrence has 39 yards on 10 attempts. The Baltimore receivers have been the big difference in the football gambling preseason as they have shown breakaway ability.
Justin Harper has 6 catches for a 19.8 yards per catch average, Derrick Mason has 4 catches for an 18.8 yards per catch average, and Jayson Foster has 3 catches for a 26.0 yards per catch average.
The Carolina Panthers rank 31st in points allowed so far in exhibition action. The bright spot has been the ground attack as DeAngelo Williams and Mike Goodson are well over 4.5 yards per carry.
