PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
The theme for Sunday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins is “Bounce Back” as each team looks to shake off an ugly showing in Week 4. Baltimore’s 25-20 loss at Buffalo was plagued by turnovers while Miami fell victim to a Saints team who have not lost at home on Monday Night Football since 2008. The Dolphins turned the ball over four times, gave up 413 passing yards, failed to protect their quarterback and lost the turnover battle 4-to-1 yet oddsmakers are still doling out the token the 3-point home field advantage in this game against the reigning Super Bowl champs. So much for “wearing a target” all season! Small non-divisional home faves on grass are 57-104-7 ATS (35-percent) since 2008 and Miami with a bye on-deck, here is an angle to consider that is 17-3 ATS since 2009 when backing the road dog (Ravens): Miami’s pass protection ranks dead last in the league (18 sacks allowed). Ryan Tannehill, meet Terrell Suggs. Take BALTIMORE to cover.
