The Baltimore Ravens have been nearly unbeatable at M&T Bank Stadium under John Harbaugh

Denver has won eight games in a row, including a 26-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders as 10-point road favorites last time out, while winning the statistical battle seven times in that span.  The Broncos are being led by quarterback Peyton Manning offensively, who has thrown for an AFC-best 30 touchdowns with a 104.0 passer rating.  He’ll definitely try to get the running game going with Knowshon Moreno, who ran the ball a career-high 32 times versus the Silver and Black.  Denver is 7-1 ATS as a favorite this season, with the OVER going 5-4 in that situation.

The Broncos have lost all four road games against the Ravens, including a 31-17 setback as eight-point underdogs on Oct. 10, 2010.  Denver is definitely a different team with Manning under center, especially since he owns a 4-2 record against Baltimore during his time with the Indianapolis Colts.  In his last four meetings with Sunday’s opponent, he has managed to throw for 12 touchdowns and just six interceptions for a passer rating or 94.0.

Baltimore has dropped back-to-back games for the first time this season, as it looks to bounce back from a 31-28 overtime defeat to the Washington Redskins as one-point road underdogs, while going OVER the total in its last two contests.  “It’s a big game, we don’t really need an incentive,” stated Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.  The Ravens made a big move in firing offensive coordinator Cam Cameron after last week’s loss, with the offense ranking 18th in the NFL in averaging 344.4 yards per game.  Baltimore is 5-4 ATS as an underdog the last two-plus seasons, which can’t be ignored when making your pro football predictions in Week 15.

The Ravens own a dominating 32-6 record at M&T Bank Stadium since Harbaugh was hired in 2008, which is tied for the second-best home mark in the league over that span.    Baltimore has been dealing with numerous injuries on the defensive side of the ball, which has led to ranking 24th overall in surrendering 375.9 yards per game.

Sports bettors will likely back the Ravens due to their 4-2 ATS mark versus AFC West opponents, while the Broncos are 3-5 ATS in the last four weeks of the season since 2010.
