The best game of the entire weekend could be the Saturday night matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills. Both teams have exciting young QBs which will propel them well into the future, but there’s only one win available in this game. The weather is expected to be somewhat rainy, so that could affect who wins this contest.
Buffalo has been installed as a 2.5-point favorite with -145 moneyline odds to win the game outright while Baltimore has +125 moneyline odds to win outright. In addition, the total is currently set at 50 points.

Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills
Saturday, January 16, 2021
8:15 p.m. EST | Watch: NBC
Bills Stadium – Orchard Park, NY
Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens)
Prop Bets Watch:
- Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-105)
- Over 25.5 Passing Attempts (-130)
- Over 196.5 Passing Yards (-115)
- Over 11.5 Rushing Attempts (-115)
- Over 75.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Jackson is turning it up at just the right time, just a win shy of getting a spot in the AFC Championship Game. Over the last few weeks, the reigning MVP led his team to point-totals of 34, 47, 40, 27, 38 and then 20 last week against the Titans- he did still accumulate 315 total yards.
This should be a wet track in Orchard Park at Saturday night, making things a bit chaotic in trying to predict anything. At the end of the day, Jackson has shown us that he can get it done in any circumstance. Look for him to get it done via air or ground and lead this Ravens team to victory.
Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills)
Prop Bets Watch:
- Under 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (-160)
- Over 37.5 Passing Attempts (-115)
- Under 293.5 Passing Yards (-115)
- Over 7.5 Rushing Attempts (-125)
- Over 41.5 Rushing Yards (-130)
We already saw the Bills in a very wet game earlier this season, and it wasn’t pretty. Look for the Ravens to follow a similar path to victory, like what the KC Chiefs did in Week 6 en route to a 26-17 victory. In that game, Allen had only 164 total yards (122 passing, 42 rushing), and it was actually rookie RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire with 26 carries for 161 yards. Look for the Ravens to employ a heavy rushing attack and keep Allen off the field more than he’s used to.
It truly is heartbreaking to bet against Allen this weekend. This is a guy we have ridden to success many times in the second half of the season. Truly… heartbreaking.
