The third weekly installment of Monday Night Football is one of the best football games of the season, as two AFC powerhouses meet up in Baltimore on prime time. The defending Super Bowl champs take on the defending NFL MVP in a must-watch game. 

After an exciting Sunday slate, bettors still itching to wager on the NFL can get their fix again tonight. So what should we expect when Monday Night Football kicks off? What is the best bet? Let’s take a look. All odds are courtesy of our friends over at BetOnline

Spread: KC: +3.5 (-115) | BAL: -3.5 (-105)

Moneyline: KC: (+155) | BAL: (-175)

Total: 54 – Over: (-125) | Under: (+105)

After rolling over the Texans to open the season, the Chiefs were pushed to their very limit on the road by rookie quarterback Justin Herbert and the Chargers. They’ll be looking to bounce back this week against their biggest AFC rival and the most likely team standing in the way of them earning a first-round bye. Patrick Mahomes has had plenty of success against the Ravens defense in his two career starts against them. He’s completed 69% of his passes for 751 yards with a 5:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio against Baltimore.

The Ravens, a lot like last year, are simply rolling over opponents right now. They’ve won their first two games by a combined 49 points but face by far their toughest test against Kansas City. Lamar Jackson hasn’t been super notable in his first two games against the Chiefs, completing only 52% of his passes and being sacked five times, but we’re still working with a small sample size. 

This is about as even a game as there is in Week 3, so I’m leaning toward the team with more trustworthy secondary pieces. Right now, that’s Baltimore. Aside from the stars at tight end and the speedsters at WR1, I trust the Miles Boykins and Willie Sneads of the world more than Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson. I also think the Ravens will be able to effectively run on a Chiefs defense allowing the fifth-most rushing yards per game to this point,

ATS Pick: Ravens -3.5

NFL picks ATS 2020: 33-13-1 (72%)

NFL picks ATS 2019: 145-119-3 (55%)

NFL picks ATS 2018: 140-115-12 (55%)
