Eagles vs Ravens: preseason analysis
As with any preseason opener, don’t expect the starting quarterbacks to be suiting up in Eagles vs Ravens. It’s highly unlikely we see much of Jalen Hurts or Lamar Jackson this preseason, but we will see a healthy dose of backups. Marcus Mariota is already being hounded by Tanner McKee in Philly, while Tyler Huntley and Josh Johnson act as backups to Lamar Jackson.
Why you should back the Ravens
If you’re looking to bet on this game, you may be wondering why the Eagles are 6-point underdogs. They are coming off of a Super Bowl berth and have a loaded roster. What gives? Well, the Ravens are absolutely lethal in the preseason. John Harbaugh has coached his team to a 43-12 record in preseason games and the team hasn’t actually lost in exhibition play since the Falcons defeated them back in 2015. 8 years ago.
Why you should back the Eagles
This may prompt bettors to immediately back the Eagles at +6 which is by far the biggest spread in the opening slate of preseason play. The Eagles have a very deep roster and one that should at least be able to go toe-to-toe with Baltimore’s backups.
With an influx of impressive young talent and a roster filled with positional battles, there is every chance the Eagles come into this matchup with a sense of wanting to silence the Ravens. It sounds silly, but if you’re a team trying to avoid a Super Bowl hangover, facing a unit that takes preseason that seriously is certainly one way to bring the best out of your players.
With a deep secondary including the likes of Kelee Ringo and Sydney Brown who will undoubtedly see plenty of playing time, I can’t imagine the Ravens doing too much damage against this Eagles defense – especially one that’s just inherited Myles Jack and Zach Cunningham, who will be competing for a starting role.
