Bill Speros writes: "In Week 8, the Ravens smothered the Buccaneers in the second half Thursday at Tampa Bay. The Saints shutout the Raiders at home. Lamar Jackson is playing like an elite QB whose contract expires this year. The Saints continue to play QB Roulette. Who knows, this week maybe it will be Alvin Kamara. This is when the quality teams begin to separate themselves from the rest - and cover."

It writes: "With the game being on Monday night, the Ravens have quite a lengthy time to prepare considering they played last week on Thursday. This, combined with the Ravens regaining numerous players back from injury and a possible appearance from outside linebacker Tyus Bowser could make for great reason as to why the Ravens are favored on the road, even after the thumping the Saints delivered on Sunday."
