    So here we go again. A primetime NFL game on Monday night and two teams that have above average defenses. The Ravens have dominated their opponents by playing with the lead and running all over them. The Rams are a team that has been defined by their defense. It has saved this teams season thus far. 

    I expect the Ravens to get out in front in this game as they often do.  They average nearly 18 points a half and lead the league in that category. The Rams, however, often get off to real slow starts and don't start rolling until the second half. Given the Rams have the 2nd best defense against the run, I do expect this game to be a bit of a slugfest early on but do feel we will get some scoring in the second half of this one. 

    The Ravens have outscored their foes 19.7 ppg to 7.7 ppg over their last three games in the first half.  I do not see anything changing in this one. The Rams have played well on defense of late, but Baltimore's offense is a different beast than their last three opponents, which was Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati.  Baltimore has averaged 21.2 ppg in the first half on the road this year. The Rams have allowed just 10.0 ppg at home in the first half, but they have not faced this kind of offense in their home games yet. Look for at least 17 by the Ravens at the break and look for them to have at least a 3 point lead heading into halftime. 

    I'll be backing the RAVENS -2.5 in the first half. The Ravens should have the lead by at least a field goal heading into halftime in this one.
