Heading into Week 3 there was a general consensus that the Buffalo Bills were the clear-cut best team in the National Football League. Now they come into Week 4 off their first defeat and face an equally dangerous team in the Baltimore Ravens. The Bills were moving the ball exceptionally well in the first half, but Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins kept pace. The game would eventually be won by the Dolphins 21-19.

Offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey would tell you, and a couple of tablets, that the Bills still should have won the game. Unfortunately for them, missed opportunities late would give the edge to the Dolphins.

Josh Allen threw for 400 yards on 42-63 passing and two touchdowns. He did fumble the ball once, which directly led to a Dolphins touchdown. The game started out as many people thought it would, high octane and high scoring, but the second half would provide just a 7-5 score in favor of Miami. The Dolphins really have their offense clicking with the combination of great wide receivers and Tagovailoa. Seeing the San Francisco 49ers struggle so much on offense means that maybe Mike McDaniel was the key all along.

Now the Bills have to get right, and a matchup against another high-powered offense provides a chance to bounce back right away. The Ravens should also be 3-0, but they ran into the Dolphins. They were up 35-14, before giving up 28 points in the fourth quarter to lose the game by four points. Lamar Jackson is the clear front-runner for MVP after three weeks. He has 749 yards on 56-88 passing coupled with 10 touchdowns and two interceptions.

He also leads the team in rushing, motoring for 243 yards and two rushing scores. His 243 yards on the ground are good for fifth in the NFL. Lamar Jackson has more rushing yards so far this season than guys like Dalvin Cook, Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, and D'Andre Swift just to name a few. It’s a tough offense to stop.

BetMGM Sportsbook is a great place to wager on this exciting matchup. They are also giving all new players a risk-free bet on their first wager, up to $1,000. To redeem the offer, you must sign up using the VIBONUS code.

BetMGM Sportsbook opened the Bills as road favorites of 3.5 points. The Ravens got early money, and ultimately this line now sits at -3 for the Bills. Both sides come in priced at -110, so a $100 wager the spread would net a $90.91 profit. Both teams enter this contest covering two of their first three games, so something has to give in this game.

Dating back to the last couple seasons, the Bill have been great against the spread off a defeat. They are 7-1-1 ATS the last nine games off a loss. The Baltimore Ravens have trended really well against the spread when facing a team with a winning record. The last 13 such situations have resulted in nine Baltimore covers.

The Bills are just 1-4 in the last five trips to Baltimore, and the home team has covered four of the last five head-to-head meetings. The one trend favoring the Bills ahead of Sunday is that the favorite has covered in four straight games when the two franchises have faced each other.

The total is listed at 51.5 at BetMGM. The opening line was 55, but a ton of sharp money on the under has moved the line down. The last five meetings have seen the total go under four times. Two highly efficient offenses facing off against two good defenses should lend to this total being a highly sought out bet on Sunday.

Head on over to the BetMGM Sportsbook and wager on spreads, total, first halves, second halves, props and even live bets. Remember to use the VIBONUS code at sign up and redeem your risk-free bet on your first wager up to $1,000.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
