I don't know if you can really who is clearly better since we have yet to see what the Ravens already not as good as in previous years defense looks like without it's heart and soul and it's best cover corner.

They're 2-4 against the spread this year. They covered the first 2 games of the season and haven't covered since. They should have covered last week, but gave up the late TD to Dallas.

4-2, we didn't cover against the Jets (-9) or against GB (-3.5 or 4 depending on the book). We covered Jax (-9 I think) Miami (-7) Denver(-1) and Tenn (-8 or 9).

So essentially we don't cover on primetime is the trend. But all trends go south eventually.

You're right. We were REALLY good against the spread last year. 12-5-1. You don't see that very often so the Texans are a pretty popular pick in Vegas for obvious reasons.
