The Baltimore Ravens are the current holders of the Lombardi Trophy while the Dolphins are going into this game after a morale seeping Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints.
Tannerhill in this game fumbled 5 times and leads the NFL in Quarterback Fumbles after Week 4.
Ravens sit atop of their division and a 2-2 start, Dolphins are second to the Patriots at 3-1 with 97 points scored and 97 against. Ravens have 97 for but only 87 against.
One main stat here is the Ravens have failed to win on the road this season after week 4 where the Dolphins haven't lost at home although they have only played one game at the Metlife.
Flacco has completed 97 passes for just over a 1,000 yards Tannerhill has completed 93 for less attemps and has just under 1,100 yards for 4 games. This stat may be because the Dolphins have run the ball more and for more yards.
Both teams have the same average of points per game but Baltimore have had more time in possession but with a lower percentage of 3rd down coversions.
On defence the Dolphin are averaging 1 point more a game allowed and with stats have a higher pass allowance they do seem to stop the run more which on the outlook would suit Flacco and Ravens.
Dolpins have won 2 of they're games by under 7 points after beating the Browns by 13, they then got beat 38-17 by the Saints so look to Flacco to pass the ball and put up the yards against what seems to be a weak pass defence from the Dolphins.
The Ravens are the heavy defeat to the Broncos in the season opener won by 8 then beat a massive favorite in Houson by 21 then lost a tight game against the bills so this season without Ray Lewis the Ravens seem to be hit and miss on defence and are weak against the run which favours the Dolphins.
The dolphins will go into the bye week with this game so can afford to run down the energy levels before getting a break next weekend. The Ravens have the Packers at home then Steelers away before they're bye week so hope to come through this game without too many injurys.
Sky Bet have Dolphins as favorites even after the defeat in New Orleans and they Dolphins are -3 handicap 10/11 and the same price if you want the Ravens up by 3.
Points are well matched at under or over 43.5 which is 10/11 with Sportingbet.
My tips is always back the points rather than teams as they can bite you hard if injurys or penaltys have an affect on a game, with that in mind our main bet is over 43.5 points (10/11 Sportingbet) and if you want a winner of the match, side with the Baltimore Ravens to win at 11/8 with Sky Bet.
