Jackson owns an outstanding record against NFC teams. He is perfect, going 12-0 in head-to-head competition throughout his career.
If Jackson can’t initiate a Ravens touchdown, kicker Justin Tucker is practically a lock to put points on the board. He had a huge game in Week 5 against the Bengals with 4 field goals including a game winning 43-yard attempt at the end of regulation.
New York Giants Overview
The Giants shocked everyone with their victory over the Green Bay Packers in Week 5 in London. Saquon Barkley is healthy and thriving in the Giants offense. He is the NFL’s second ranked rusher with 533 yards. Despite being injured and having injured wide receivers, quarterback Daniel Jones is also making big plays when he needs to. The Brian Daboll effect on this organization is taking hold in a short amount of time.
TakingVegas.com Pick: Baltimore (-5.5)
It is hard to pick against Lamar Jackson especially with his unbeaten record against NFC opponents. The Ravens are holding onto first place, leading by one game, in a tight AFC North division. Jackson and Tucker will cover the spread while the Giants could suffer from a London hangover.
