Nothing has been as close to automatic in the preseason as John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens as they have won a record 23 in a row and 28 of their past 31 with an incredible 26-5 ATS record. Harbaugh is 43-12 straight up and 39-15-1 ATS in the preseason since he came into the league. Lamar Jackson likely won't play and the backups are Tyler Huntley, Anthony Brown and Josh Johnson. Huntley started four games in 2022 and Brown started in Week 18 against Cincinnati and threw for 286 yards, but the Ravens lost 27-16. Huntley went 17-for-29 for 226 yards and two TDs against the Bengals in a playoff game. Johnson has been in the league off and on since 2009 and was injured in San Francisco's loss in the NFC Championship game last year. Philadelphia coach Nick Sirianni is 1-4-1 straight up and ATS in preseason and the Eagles were 0-3 ATS in 2022 although they did get a 21-20 win over Cleveland as a three-point favorite. Marcus Mariota will back up Jalen Hurts along with Tanner McKee and Ian Book. Mariota is with his fourth team and started 13 games with Atlanta last season. McKee is a rookie from Stanford and Book started one game for New Orleans in 2021. Baltimore is 9-1 ATS in Game One of the preseason. Take the Ravens as a Max Play.
