Baltimore Ravens vs. Arizona Cardinals Betting Prediction
The Baltimore Ravens have been among the best teams in the league on both sides of the football this season. The opposite can be said for the Arizona Cardinals, who have been among the league’s worst teams by nearly every metric. If not for a shocking 28-16 victory against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, the Cardinals would have the worst record in the league. As things stand, they have the second-worst record. Look for the Ravens to take advantage of what could be the worst opponent on their schedule this season as they win by at least nine points.
