Head-to-Head: Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers

The Ravens enter this matchup having won 8 of their last 9 games, including each of their last 4 road games. Their offense ranks fifth in yards per game (374.1) on the season, first in rushing yards (163.8), and fourth in points (27.4). Their defense is even better, allowing the second-fewest yards per game (287.9) and the fewest points (16.1). Heading into their last road game of the regular season with the best record in the AFC, it’s hard to imagine the Ravens losing pole position in the conference if it doesn’t happen against the 49ers.

It’s also hard to find a better team for the job of beating them than the 49ers, who field an offense currently ranking second in yards per game (402.6) and third in points (30.4). Few stats show the explosivity of the 49ers’ offense better than the juxtaposition of their league-low passing attempts per game (27.9) and their second-best mark in passing yards per game (262.6). Their defense doesn’t trail far behind either, allowing the ninth-fewest yards per game (310.1) and second-fewest points (16.7).

On both sides, this is a matchup of unstoppable forces and immovable objects. There’s little head-to-head history to reference between these teams either, with them having met only five times since the 2007 season – including a 2013 meeting in the Super Bowl. It’s not far-fetched to say they could meet there again this season, regardless of who wins this week.

Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers Predictions

The 49ers will get a bump in the odds from being the home team and winning each of their last six games by no fewer than 12 points, but it’d be surprising if they made steamrolling the Ravens look nearly that easy. Both players have multiple big names on the report – it’ll be a big deal if the Ravens get limited or no participation from Odell Beckham,  Zay Flowers, or Ronnie Stanley, especially after having to put Keaton Mitchell on IR after last week.

Check the report before finalizing any bold bets, but the spread is where it is for a reason. The 49ers will be favored to win at home against anyone, and it’ll be big news if another team wins in Santa Clara before the end of the season.
