2002 Season NFL Football Past Picks

Tennessee at Baltimore
Sunday 11/24 01:00 PM Eastern
4 units on Baltimore +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
The Titans are riding a five game winning streak and I think it is about to end. Baltimore has lost three out of four, but all three losses were against teams playing very well (Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Miami). Baltimore essentially has to win to stay alive.
This is a pretty even matchup statistically but with the Ravens we are getting points at home with a better defense and a better running game. What more can you ask for? The recent fortunes of these clubs have allowed this line to get out-of-whack as Baltimore should be favored.
Baltimore plays former division foe Tennessee very well. The Ravens won both games last year and have held Eddie George to just 36 yards per game over their last six meetings! Despite some success recently, George is still struggling at a meager 3.5 yards per carry.
With Ray Lewis back, I expect Baltimore to win this game outright.
