NFL Betting Preview: Baltimore Ravens vs. Los Angeles Chargers

November 26, 2023

NBC’s Sunday Night Football game for week 12 of the NFL season will feature the Baltimore Ravens traveling to Los Angeles, California to face the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium with the game starting at 8:20 PM ET and will air on NBC and the Peacock app.

Baltimore has the best record in the AFC entering week 12 with a record of 8-3 and has won five of their last six games. The success of the Ravens this season can be attributed to their scoring offense as they enter this game averaging the 4th most points per game in the league with an average of 27.64 points per game. Lamar Jackson has been the main catalyst for the offensive success for the Baltimore Ravens as he enters this game having completed 210 of 302 attempts for 2,441 yards with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions while rushing for 535 yards and five touchdowns. The defense has also been one of the best scoring defenses in the NFL as well and they are allowing the 2nd fewest points per game with an average of 16.09 points per game.

The Los Angeles Chargers have been one of the most disappointing teams this season in the NFL as they enter this game two games below .500 after only having seven losses last season they already have six losses as they enter the game with a record of 4-6 which has also landed Brandon Staley on the hot season. The offense continues to be one of the best in the NFL as they enter this game averaging 25.9 points per game, however, the defense has not lived up to expectations as they enter this game allowing an average of 23.8 points per game which is the 10th most in the league and will now be without one of their best defensive players, Joey Bosa, for the remainder of the season. Things won’t get any easier this week for the offense of the Ravens as they will be facing the 2nd best defensive scoring teams in the league in week 12 of the NFL season.

BookMaker has the Baltimore Ravens listed as 3.5-point favorites on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night in week 12 of the NFL season. Baltimore has won six of the last ten and two of the last three meetings. The teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Ravens are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Baltimore Ravens are 7-4 ATS overall, 2-2 ATS on the road, and 6-4 ATS as a favorite this season while the Los Angeles Chargers are 4-6 ATS overall, 2-3 ATS at home, and 0-3 ATS as an underdog on the year.

Baltimore has been the better team this season as they enter this game with a record of 7-3 while the Chargers are 4-6. The Ravens also have the 4th best scoring offense and the 2nd best scoring defense while also having been the better team in the series, winning six of the last ten and two of the last three meetings. I look for that trend to continue which is why I am taking the moneyline for the Baltimore Ravens at -182 for this matchup on Sunday night.
