Week 16 of the NFL season actually has three games set to take place on Monday, but the best game will take place on Monday night. The Baltimore Ravens will visit the San Francisco 49ers and this has the potential to be a Super Bowl preview.
Baltimore is currently atop the standings in the AFC with a record of 11-3, but they still have plenty of work to do. The Ravens have won four of their last five games, and there have been some impressive wins along the way.
San Francisco has been a favorite to win the Super Bowl all season long, and they look like a team that can get that done. The 49ers are currently on top of the NFC standings at 11-3, and they have won six games in a row.
San Francisco is a six-point betting favorite on Monday night at home against the Baltimore Ravens.
Ravens Rolling on Offense
The Baltimore Ravens come into this game with a ton of momentum on offense, and quarterback Lamar Jackson is setting the tone. Jackson has thrown for over 3,100 yards this season and he also has over 700 rushing yards.
Wide receiver Zay Flowers has really stepped up his play of late as he now has 680 receiving yards on the year. Baltimore wants to establish the run first, but they will also be taking some shots down the field.
The Ravens are also allowing just 16 points per game this season, and they are great at getting after the quarterback. Baltimore has to be solid on both sides of the ball if they plan on winning this matchup.
49ers Loaded With Weapons
The San Francisco 49ers are averaging 30.4 points per game this season, and that offense can attack teams in so many ways. Quarterback Brock Purdy is an MVP candidate this season, but he isn’t the only star on this offense.
Purdy has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes this season, and he tends to spread the ball around. Running back Christian McCaffrey has rushed for 1,292 yards and 13 touchdowns this season, and he will find holes in the Baltimore defense.
This 49ers team are getting a ton of attention on offense, but this defense can also take over a game as well. Look for the 49ers to put a spy on Jackson in this game in hopes of slowing him down.
49ers Roll Over Ravens
Lamar Jackson has proven to be nearly unstoppable over the last few games for the Ravens, but he is not facing a great defense. The Ravens are battling a ton of injuries on offense, and they just won’t be able to keep pace.
This San Francisco 49ers team is doing nearly everything right at this time, and that goes for both sides of the ball. Look for the offense to have a big game for the 49ers, and the defense will take care of the rest.
Bet the San Francisco 49ers -6.0 as they are going to roll to a big win on Monday Night Football.
