The Colts will be in Baltimore to take on the Ravens for a Week 5 matchup on Monday Night Football.
Both of these teams won in week 4.
Baltimore is currently a 7 point favorite and I would not be surprised to see that number go up even higher. Most totals I have seen are at 46.
The Colts have had a rough start to the season, but they finally picked up a victory on Sunday.
Indianapolis walked into Miami as a 2.5 point underdog and they beat the Dolphins 27-17. At this point, they will take any win they can get.
It took a while for the Colts to get into a groove on Sunday. They only had 7 points at halftime.
Carson Wentz was 24/38 for 228 yards and 2 touchdown passes. He will look to build off of that when going against the Ravens. He certainly will have his hands full when going against that stout Baltimore defense.
The running game was very effective in the Sunday victory. Jonathan Taylor ran it 16 times for 103 yards. He will likely get a heavy workload on Monday night.
The Ravens lost in week 1 to the Raiders, but they have since rattled off three wins in a row. This team looks like they can be dangerous if they are on.
Baltimore was a 1 point underdog in Denver on Sunday, but they beat the Broncos 23-7. They have now knocked off 2 tough teams from the AFC West.
With a record of 3-1, the Ravens are tied with both the Browns and the Bengals. It definitely seems like it will be a very competitive division this year.
Lamar Jackson was 22/37 for 316 yards and 1 touchdown pass. He also ran the ball 7 times for 28 yards.
The defense did a good job of confusing Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock. Neither quarterback was all that effective on Sunday. If this unit can get a consistent pass rush on Carson Wentz, I think they will have success in this game. Another key will be to limit the shifty and explosive Jonathan Taylor.

4* Free Week 5 NFL Betting Prediction: Baltimore SU
I could definitely see the Ravens covering this spread of 7 here, but I am not sold on it. Some part of me thinks that the Colts can at least keep it a close game. I cannot say that I would be surprised if the Ravens turn it into a blowout as the game goes on, but to me, that is not the most likely scenario. I feel that Indy will stay around and make it competitive but ultimately will not have enough to get the win. Both of these defenses are good, so I do not see this thing turning into a shootout. I feel the Ravens will do enough to get a win at home. Give me Baltimore here.
