RAIDERS (+2.5) over Colts
Las Vegas finds itself in a favorable tech spot — catching Indianapolis off a narrow, bitter divisional loss to the Texans. When hosting Houston next week, the Colts have a clear shot at quick revenge. The Raiders are focused on making their way into AFC postseason party after staging a narrow escape against the Jets. The home ’dog needs it more. It’s a take (+2.5), for one unit.
Ravens (-1) over BROWNS
Cleveland was very good to us last weekend at Tennessee, but this lays out differently. The Browns haven’t always been ironclad defensively this season — especially when not aided by rain, wind, or both. Choosing between these two, Baltimore remains the established class and looks to sustain its more-than-respectable defensive abilities, justified reputation and demonstrable worth. The Ravens’ (-1) defense dwarfs that fielded by, say, Tennessee. Baltimore prevails, for one unit.
LAST WEEK: 1-1. Browns (W). Falcons (L).
