NFL Monday Night Football:

Baltimore at Green Bay Packers -3½ (Total 42½): There’s been quite a lot of support for Green Bay at home, but the Ravens will play hard in tonight’s contest. Surprisingly, the Packers don’t have as big as edge in their offensive attack as you’d expect. Green Bay is averaging about 262 yards/game versus Baltimore’s 236, but that translates into only 3.5 points per game. The difference might come down to the defenses, and that’s where Green Bay might have enough of an edge. The Pack has held opposing passing attacks to just a 71.8 rating, while the Ravens are keeping aerial assaults down to 79.1 In addition, Green Bay is allowing just a 53 percent completion rate, while Baltimore is giving up passes at slightly over 60 percent. Expect Green Bay to outshoot the Ravens tonight in a relatively high-scoring affair. Green Bay -3½ and OVER the total of 42½
