The Baltimore Ravens will travel to Glendale, Arizona to face the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on Sunday afternoon in week 8 of the NFL season with the game airing at 4:25 PM ET on CBS.

Baltimore enters this game with a record of 5-2 following a 38-6 win at home against the Detroit Lions while covering the 3-point spread as a home favorite in week 7 of the NFL season. The Ravens scored 38 points while compiling a total of 503 yards offensively which included 357 passing yards and 146 rushing yards while allowing 6 points and 337 total yards defensively which included 284 passing yards and 84 rushing yards.

Gus Edwards led the team in rushing with 14 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown while also leading the team in receiving with a reception for 80 yards.

The Arizona Cardinals enter this game with a record of 1-6 and are on a four-game losing streak following a 10-20 loss on the road against the Seattle Seahawks while failing to cover the 9-point spread as a road underdog in week 7 of the NFL season. Arizona scored 10 points while compiling a total of 249 yards offensively which included 150 passing yards and 127 rushing yards while allowing 20 points and 318 total yards defensively which included 219 passing yards and 115 rushing yards. Joshua Dobbs led the team in passing, completing 19 of 33 attempts for 146 yards while adding 43 rushing yards and a touchdown on seven attempts. Emari Demercado led the team in rushing with 13 carries for 58 yards while adding four receptions for 17 yards.

BookMaker has the Baltimore Ravens listed as 8-point favorites on the road against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon in week 8 of the NFL season. Baltimore has won five of the last seven and two of the last three games in the series while Arizona is 5-2 ATS in the last seven and 2-1 ATS in the last three meetings. The Baltimore Ravens are 5-2 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS on the road, and 4-2 ATS as a favorite this season while the Arizona Cardinals are 3-4 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS at home, and 3-4 ATS as an underdog on the year.

Baltimore is the more talented team and has been the better team in the series, winning five of the last seven and two of the last three games. However, the Cardinals have been the better team at covering the spread in the series, going 5-2 ATS in the last seven and 2-1 ATS in the last three games. I look for the Ravens to get the win, however, I look for the Cardinals to cover the spread which is why I am taking the points with the Arizona Cardinals at home in week 8 of the NFL season.
