Ravens favored by a field goal in Week 13 game vs. Lions

The Ravens are field-goal favorites ahead of their home game Sunday against the Detroit Lions, according to most Las Vegas betting lines.

Home-field advantage is usually worth about three points in betting spreads, meaning the teams are seen as being nearly equal. The Lions (6-5), coming off their first loss in four games, are 1-1 in two all-time trips to Baltimore. Detroit is also 3-1-1 against the spread on the road this season, according to CBS Sports.

It's risky for the Ravens to keep running an ineffective Breshad Perriman onto the field while leaving themselves short-handed at other positions.

The Ravens (6-5) last played the Lions in 2013, winning after Justin Tucker hit a last-minute, go-ahead 61-yard field goal at Ford Field. Against the spread, the Ravens are 7-17 over their past 24 December games, 1-4 over their past five games on FieldTurf and 0-3-1 over their past four games after a straight-up win, according to Sports Chat Place.

The over-under for the game is 40½ points.
