Saturday night features a regional rivalry game between the Washington Commanders and Baltimore Ravens. The Commanders have yet to win a preseason game this year, while the Ravens are currently undefeated.
Washington suffered a two-point loss against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1 before losing by 10 points to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. Baltimore, on the other hand, has beaten two playoff teams from last year in the Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals.

Commanders vs Ravens Prediction & Pick
These two teams have had very different preseason experiences thus far. The Commanders have struggled to integrate Carson Wentz into the offense, while their Ravens have hummed along and beaten a pair of potential postseason teams without Lamar Jackson playing a single snap.
Even if Jackson doesn't take the field in Week 3, that shouldn't be a problem for Baltimore. Tyler Huntley is one of the league's better backup quarterbacks, while John Harbaugh has guided his team to 22 consecutive preseason victories.
Final Score Prediction: Commanders: 17 | Ravens: 21
Commanders vs Ravens Betting Trends
- Washington is 1-6 straight up in its last seven games.
- Baltimore has a 42-12 preseason record under Harbaugh.
- The total has hit the under in 10 of Washington's last 14 games.
- Baltimore is 5-2 ATS (against the spread) in its last 7 games.
Commanders vs Ravens Best Bet
All NFL preseason betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
There's too much juice on the Ravens' moneyline and large spreads are risky in general (especially in the preseason), so the total looks like our best bet.
The total seems a bit high considering Washington's offensive inconsistency and Jackson's likely absence. The Commanders have scored a modest 35 points in their two preseason games and may struggle against a solid Ravens defense.
Washington has a respectable defense as well and just held Kansas City to 24 points, so Baltimore is unlikely to score more than that. The Ravens also like to go run-heavy on offense, which will likely happen if they grab an early lead and should keep the total score down.
