Thursday Night NFL Total of the Year - Rickenbach NFL Rotation #301 Thursday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Baltimore Ravens vs New York Jets @ 8:20 ET - The Jets secondary is banged up and that is bad news here. That's because the Ravens enter with the #1 rushing attack in the NFL thanks in large part to the running ability of QB Lamar Jackson. But if he can also attack downfield through the air that means this Jets defense is going to struggle all night long. Also, I don't see the Ravens taking their foot off the gas in this one as they are still highly motivated to lock up the #1 seed in the AFC post-season. Baltimore is off a "grinder" type game against the Bills in which both teams struggled to move the ball very well. That was in windy Buffalo and the Bills are known for their defense. The Jets have respectable numbers on defense this season too but they are banged up right now and I expect the Ravens to take advantage. At the same time I do expect the Jets offense to enjoy some success. Baltimore's defense has had to step up big against quality teams in recent weeks. Don't be surprised if there is a bit of a let up here as they now take on a weaker foe and on a short week. It is simply hard to maintain that high-level intensity and physicality in a situation like this and the Ravens were truly taken to the wire by the Bills last week. The Jets have won 4 of 5 games so they have some confidence in terms of moving the football and playing winning football. They'll score quite well here but I don't foresee New York being able to get many stops on defense. The Ravens are scoring an average of 35 points per game in their last 7 games. Also, the weather will be chilly but light winds and no precipitation in Baltimore tonight. A beautiful night for football. The Jets have won 4 of 5 games and scored an average of 31 points in the 4 victories. Look for a surprising number of points in this game and I see it soaring over the total. The over is 3-0 this season when the Jets are off consecutive ATS losses. The over is 6-1 in the Ravens last 7 games against AFC East opponents. More of the same expected here. 10* OVER the total in Baltimore
