Ravens are field goal favorites in ‘Monday Night Football’ matchup vs. Saints

The Ravens are field goal favorites over the Saints ahead of their “Monday Night Football” matchup in New Orleans, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.

The Ravens (5-3), enjoying their first winning streak of the season, are favored by three points over the Saints, who blanked the visiting Las Vegas Raiders, 24-0, on Sunday. New Orleans is 3-5 overall and 2-3 since quarterback Andy Dalton took over for the banged-up Jameis Winston in Week 4.

The Ravens are 3-1 on the road this season, including a 27-22 win Thursday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They’re also 3-1 against the spread away from Baltimore, with the exception being their 24-20 loss to the New York Giants. New Orleans is 2-3 overall at the Caesars Superdome and 3-2 against the spread.

Both teams could be missing star players. Saints starting wide receivers Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry have been sidelined for over a month by foot and ankle injuries, respectively, while starting cornerback Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) hasn’t played since Week 5. Ravens starting wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot) will miss several weeks, and the availability of All-Pro tight end Mark Andrews (shoulder) and starting running back Gus Edwards (hamstring) is unknown.

The Ravens lead the all-time series 5-2. New Orleans won the teams’ last meeting, in 2018, after kicker Justin Tucker missed a would-be tying extra-point attempt in the final minute in Baltimore. The Ravens have played just twice in New Orleans, winning both road trips.

The over-under for Monday’s game is 48 points.
