Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins Picks & TNF Betting Predictions

Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, who came out of their bye week to edge the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, host the Miami Dolphins for Thursday Night Football with a chance to maintain a sizeable lead in the AFC North.

The Ravens (6-2) have a 1.5-game lead in the divisional race, but all four teams in the North have winning records. The Dolphins are just 2-7, but they’re coming off a 17-9 win over the Texans, highlighted by a strong and the play of QB Jacoby Brissett, a last-minute starter for scratched QB Tua Tagovailoa.

The status of Tua (finger) for Week 10 likely won’t be known until gameday. Sportsbooks have Baltimore as a 7.5-point road favorite, this after most betting sites and some top betting apps, opened the game at Ravens -6.5.

Take a look at Ravens vs Dolphins odds, injury report, betting lines and more.

Ravens vs. Dolphins Weather Forecast

Miami is known for South Beach and sunny skies – Thursday’s game may paint a different picture. Temperatures close to 80 during the day give way to scattered showers and thunderstorms. There is a 70% chance of in-game wetness on the field for Ravens vs. Dolphins.

Ravens vs. Dolphins Player Props

Mike Gesicki, Over 4.5 Receptions

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

The Ravens are allowing 6.5 receptions per game, on 9.4 targets, and 74.4 yards to tight ends. Those all rank in the bottom-five in the NFL. Gesicki, the Dolphins’ receiving yards leader, is averaging 5.9 receptions over the last seven games.

Lamar Jackson, Over 63.5 Rushing Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

Jackson is the top rushing weapon in the NFL’s top rushing attack. He’s averaging 6.2 yards per carry and 75 yards per game on the ground. Miami’s run defense is far better than its pass D, but Jackson has 88 and 120 yards on the ground the last two weeks.

Lamar Jackson, Over 200 Pass Yards & 50 Rush Yards

Odds: +100 at FOX Bet

Sure, Jackson likes to run, and 50 yards is a very doable number to hit. But he’s also thrown for at least 200 yards in all but one game. Miami’s defense allows nearly 300 pass yards per game.


Ravens vs. Dolphins Moneyline

The Ravens are -335 on the moneyline, meaning a $335 wager would win $100 in profit. On the other side, the Dolphins are at +245 (+100 wins $245 in profit).

We can try and find ways Miami has the edge here, including homefield. The Dolphins are typically more competitive when Tua plays (unless he’s facing the Bills). But if we’re being honest, picking Miami here is probably a waste of money. They finally got a win, but it was vs. the horrid Texans, and it was despite four turnovers. Lamar Jackson would make them pay far more for such shoddy play. Taking the Ravens here is the better choice at DraftKings.

Ravens vs. Dolphins Point Spread

When it comes to NFL spreads, the Ravens have dominated their Thursday AFC counterpart, covering the spread in the last nine meetings. Since 2016, the teams have faced off three times. Baltimore has won all three, and the closest game in that span was 38-6.

We may not know who will be under center for Miami until just a few hours before kickoff, but it doesn’t matter. This game has mismatch written all over it. Miami’s 30th ranking in both offense and defense means it has no favorable matchup.

Baltimore does, and it begins at QB. Those looking for a Thursday night side as part of your NFL picks should consider laying the points, despite the hook at Caesars, with the road Ravens.

Ravens vs. Dolphins Totals

The Over/Under for Thursday Night Football is 46.5 points, a middle-of-the-pack number. It’s also a number that Baltimore surpassed by itself in the last meeting between these teams, a 59-10 beatdown in 2019.

We like the Under. Together, these teams average 44.8 ppg this season, but when you combined the Ravens’ ppg in road games and the Dolphins’ mark at home, that average plummets to just 38.5. The Under has been profitable on Thursdays. How the Dolphins hold up their end of the scoring bargain is tough to see, so the Under is a worthy part of your NFL betting Week 10 lineup at FanDuel.
