Can Justin Fields and the Bears keep up with Baltimore?
Had the Baltimore Ravens not just got upset by the Miami Dolphins on national television, this game would have a very different feel about it. However, the Ravens were stifled by Miami’s defense and struggled to get anything going on offense. Now, they have to go into the always difficult Soldier Field and try to get their offense clicking.
Baltimore has now failed to cover each of their last three as they have slipped to 3-6 against the spread this year. When favorites, the Ravens are just 2-6, indicating that they’re rarely winning comfortably in these matchups. This will be the fourth time in a row they are favored by 6 points or more. They have lost two of those games and narrowly won the third.
However, the performances of the Bears this year make this prediction against the Ravens really tough to feel confident about. The Bears have now lost four straight, three of which they lost by 10+ points. They pushed the Steelers close on Monday Night Football, but it took a furious comeback to do so.
That game against the Steelers was the Bears’ first cover in four weeks. This season, they are 2-5 against the spread as underdogs but 2-2 at home. However, as home underdogs, they are 0-2 this year. Additionally, they are coming off their bye, which has been tricky for teams. So far, in 2021, teams off the bye are 7-9 straight up.
Ravens vs. Bears prediction
It’s tough to trust either of these teams in Week 11. The Ravens have been sloppy in the first half of some games and have required comebacks to win. That is not a sustainable way to play football, and it showed last time out in Miami.
Nevertheless, the Bears have really struggled this year. Justin Fields does appear to be getting his confidence as a starter, but the consistency has not been there. The Ravens are the better team — as their record indicates — but it’s close to impossible to trust them to cover this line. They have failed to cover a spread of 6 or more as favorites all five times this season.
