Bet On Ravens vs. Steelers NFL Week 5 Game At

Despite all the hype about Lamar Jackson and the overreaction about the bad start from the Steelers, these two teams are separated just by one game.

The Ravens -3.5 on the road seems a little disrespectful to the Steelers. Baltimore’s defense has allowed 500+ total yards in two consecutive games. It should be a good matchup for Pittsburgh’s RB James Conner.

There is a battle of backup QBs in Carolina this weekend. Panthers’ QB Kyle Allen has been good, but Gardner Minshew has stolen all the social media talk over the past two weeks.

Broncos QB Joe Flacco is 0-4 for the first-time ins his career. Their offense is averaging only 17.5 points per game during the first month of the season.

On defense, Denver lost OLB Bradley Chubb for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Before the game against the Jaguars during the weekend, the team had zero sacks in 2019. Without Chubb, the task gets harder.

The Chargers had RB Melvin Gordon back last week against Miami, but he didn’t play a snap. Gordon should see some action against the Broncos.
