Baltimore is 4-1 in its previous five road games, with the total going over in four of the last five contests. The Ravens are also 4-1 in their previous five games against AFC West opponents.
Los Angeles has covered the spread in four out of ten games this season but has yet to win when underdogs of 3.5 points or more. The total has gone under four of the last six times these teams opposed each other and in seven of the Chargers’ previous eight games.

Ravens vs. Chargers Predictions
This could be a more difficult matchup for the Ravens than what it looks like on paper. LA is a better team than their 4-6 record, with four defeats by three points or less and only one loss by more than that margin.
However, Baltimore has the better defense and should cover the spread against the Chargers as they head toward crucial matchups against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins in the next three weeks.
Prediction: Baltimore Ravens -3.5
