This is almost the same situation as last week. Essentially I think the Ravens are an under-rated team who are outperforming their constituent parts.

The Cleveland Browns haven't really got rolling on offense yet under an understandably rusty Deshaun Watson, and too much of their game flows through the excellent Nick Chubb - he is just one player though and gives the Browns' forward play a lop-sided look that helps their opponent's defensive co-ordinators.

The Ravens have shown themselves well-suited by this sort of physical match-up and for me should be odds-on here - Tyler Huntley is a capable QB in (exactly) the same mould as Lamar, so this replacement doesn't have a huge negative impact on Baltimore's point scoring capability. The Ravens also seem to have improving fitness among their RB ranks with Dobbins and Edwards both performing well when called on last week.

The predictor has this as Baltimore Ravens 25-17 Cleveland Browns and I'm happy to see that as a feasible outcome. The selection this week is Baltimore to win.

Hmmm... offensive impotence from Baltimore meant they couldn't take the victory teed up for them by another strong defensive performance. Being tough and steady is fine, but if you aren't ever able to make occasional chunk gains from deeper throws, then your effectiveness overall is pretty limited.
