NFL Preseason Picks Week 3 Giants vs Ravens: The Baltimore Ravens play host to the New York Giants who travel down I-95 to face the Ravens in NFL preseason picks week 3 action of the NFL. Vegas odds have the Ravens favored by 4 points.
The Ravens are undefeated thus far in the 2010 NFL preseason picks, beating the Panthers 17-12 at home and dominating the Washington Redskins 23-3 in DC.
On offense, the Ravens spread the ball around. Last week, against the Redskins, quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Marc Bulger had a whopping 17 different players catch the ball and 10 more ran the ball. NFL predictions show Ray Rice and Willis McGahee lead a group of running backs that will challenge the Giants defensive linemen and linebackers who were pushed around a little bit by the Steelers a week ago. NFL odds indicate the Ravens will look to get the ball to their big offseason acquisition Anquan Boldin along with 2010 draftee Dennis Pitta, tight end from BYU. NFL predictions show If the Ravens offensive line can control the line of scrimmage and give the quarterbacks time, Flacco and Bulger could have a big night.
Defensively, the Ravens bring pressure, whether it is against Eli Manning, who NFL preseason picks indicate might play after sitting out last week’s game with stitches in his forehead, or the 4-quarter man Rhett Bomar, who played all 4 quarters against the Steelers. NFL predictions validate who ever is at quarterback will have Steve Smith as their primary target, who could get open against the likes of Fabian Washington and Chris Carr at corner, if his quarterback has time. Vegas odds agree Ravens can exploit the Giants offensive line with their multiple looks and will have their hands full against Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, and the Ravens attacking “D.”
NFL odds show the over/under in this game is an attractive 38. If the Ravens defense plays as expected , the Giants will have trouble putting the ball in the end zone. NFL preseason picks state "Go with the under."
