Broncos are five-point underdogs to Ravens in Week 3

After opening 3.5-point underdogs, the line has since grown to 5 for the Denver Broncos as they travel to face the Baltimore Ravens.

The Denver Broncos (2-0) will face their first road test of the season as they travel to Maryland to face the Baltimore Ravens (1-1) in Week 3 action. The Broncos opened 3.5-point underdogs to the Ravens, but that line has since grown to a full 5-point spread.

There is not a whole lot of trust in this Broncos squad that has squeaked by two teams at home that have yet to win a game in 2018, while the Ravens put down a 47-3 beatdown of the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 before falling to their division rival on the road in Week 2.

The Broncos own a 6-5 record all-time against the Ravens in the regular season, but that includes a 1-4 record in Baltimore.

With a critical Monday Night Football match-up with the offensive juggernaut that is the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4, it will be vitally important the Broncos steal one here from the Ravens. They can also go a long way proving this team is different than the one that started 2-0 in 2017 before losing 11 of their next 14 games.

Kickoff is set for Sunday, September 23, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Mile High time at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. The game will be televised on CBS with Andrew Catalon (play-by-play), James Lofton (analyst), and Jane Slater (sideline reporting) covering the game.
