The Ravens lead the AFC North with a 5-2 record but are coming off a blowout 41-17 loss to divisional rivals the Cincinnati Bengals. Quarterback Lamar Jackson and his team will look back to winning ways in Week 9 and improve to 6-2.
The Vikings suffered an embarrassing loss to the Dallas Cowboys at home in Week 8. Dallas was without star quarterback Dak Prescott, but his backup Cooper Rush torched the Vikings to the tune of 325 yards and two touchdowns. The Vikings are 3-4 and are staring down the barrel of another season without a trip to the playoffs.

Ravens vs. Vikings betting picks
The Vikings’ run defense is giving up almost 121 yards per game this season, and the Ravens, who rank third in rushing yards per game, are bound to take advantage of this. Minnesota also has a potent ground game weapon in Dalvin Cook, but he has managed only two rushing touchdowns this season. A Cook and Lamar Jackson touchdown parlay has excellent odds but is a risky pick. However, it’s one worth considering.

Ravens vs. Vikings Prediction
The Ravens are well-rested and will be better prepared for this game than the Vikings. Baltimore also has a rushing attack that can shred the Minnesota defense. Kirk Cousins and the visitors will surely be able to move the ball down the field, but they won’t have many opportunities as the Ravens’ ground game will chew up the clock and score often.
