Free SIC Pick: Buffalo Bills vs. Baltimore Ravens Over 50.5 Points
This matchup between two top-5 scoring teams this season also extensive injuries to both defenses.
Despite the potential for a sloppy field and minor-to-medium wind speeds, this matchup should result in a shootout that will hit the Over on the total of 50.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
Buffalo will potentially be down its two top safeties in Micah Hyde, who is on IR with a neck injury, and Jordan Poyer, who missed last week with a foot issue. The Bills are also down No. 1 corner Tre’Davious White and depth corner Christian Benford.
Dane Jackson, the slot corner who was hospitalized after a neck injury in Week 2, is listed as questionable and amazingly may suit up for Buffalo. Still, the weaknesses on defense are exploitable for Lamar Jackson, who leads the NFL with 10 touchdown passes thus far.
Baltimore also has issues in the secondary and is down both starting edge rushers.
That should allow Josh Allen plenty of time to find league-leading wideout Stefon Diggs.
