The Ravens’ offense ranked third in rushing yards (145.8), 13th in passing yards (233.0), and 17th in points per game (22.8) last season. Quarterback Lamar Jackson passed for 2,882 yards, 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Jackson also led the Ravens in rushing yards (767) and had two scores on the ground.

The Titans, formerly the Houston Oilers, have yet to win the Super Bowl. They won the AFC in 1999 and then lost to the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV (1999). After missing the playoffs every year from 2009-2016, the Titans have qualified four times since 2017.
The Ravens, previously the first incarnation of the Cleveland Browns, have two Super Bowl titles since becoming a franchise in 1996. The Ravens routed the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV (2000) and topped the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVIII (2012). The Ravens have qualified for the playoffs 13 times with six division titles since 2000.
The Ravens are favored by 3.5 points over the Titans. For the money line, it’s Titans +160 and Ravens -190. The over/under is set for 31.5 points.
Figure on the under with this being the first preseason game for both teams. The Ravens will cover the spread and top the Titans.
