Ravens vs Cardinals Prediction, Odds & Betting Trends for NFL Preseason Game on FanDuel Sportsbook (Aug 20)
Ravens vs Cardinals Preseason Game Info
Week 2 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals. Scoring points in all four quarters, the Ravens walked out of last week's preseason opener with a 23-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans. Veteran cornerback Daryl Worley had one of Baltimore's standout performances, recording four solo tackles, an interception and a broken-up pass.
The Cardinals are also buzzing after opening their preseason slate with a dominant 36-23 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. While Cincinnati actually controlled the ball for most of the game, Arizona's ability to convert on red-zone drives (5-of-6) proved to be the difference-maker.

Ravens vs Cardinals Prediction & Pick
After how both teams played to open the preseason, this could be one of the more fun games of the week. Having said that, the Ravens have been a bettor's dream in recent preseasons, going 10-0 against the spread in their last 10 exhibition contests.
Having said that, the Ravens are only 2-5 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Cardinals. Arizona was also up 36-9 over the Bengals after three quarters, so the Cardinals' offense should give the Ravens more of a challenge than the Titans did last week.
I have a feeling that this game will end in a shootout, and the Cardinals will be victorious when the final whistle blows.
Final Score Prediction: Cardinals: 30 | Ravens: 25

This is one of this week's preseason matchups that could go either way. Still, it's quite likely that this could be one of the higher-scoring affairs, especially with how the Cardinals and Ravens played last week. Don't overthink it: enjoy the offense and back the over.
