Get ready for what could be the best game of the NFL season. Of course, now that we’ve jinxed it, we might be in for a defensive struggle like the Tampa Bay-Green Bay game. But not unlike that game, we have two of the best and most exciting quarterbacks in the NFL in Josh Allen taking on Lamar Jackson. The Bills vs Ravens betting odds favor Allen’s squad despite being the visitors though who is to stop Jackson and the Ravens who are on pace for a historic season?

Good Luck to Whoever Faces a Pissed Off Josh Allen
The Bills are pissed off. Mainly, Allen knew he and the team let one get away against the Dolphins. Despite Allen and the offense putting up a season-high 497 yards, the team managed just 19 points and lost its first game of the season. A costly turnover and penalties may be at fault here, especially with many of these happening with the Bills in a scoring position.
“We beat ourselves,” Allen said as he assessed the Bills’ Week 3 loss to Miami. “Sometimes that’s just how it goes.”
The Bills put up 72 points in their first two weeks, which were the most in the NFL at the time.
Losing in heartbreaking fashion is something Buffalo is accustomed to. Their 2021 season ended in overtime against Kansas City when Allen and the offense stood on the sidelines. So what did Buffalo do? Get mad and blow out both the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans to start the 2022 season. The Bills put up 72 points in their first two weeks, which were the most in the NFL at the time.
Now, Buffalo is heading over to Baltimore aching to rectify its mistake. The Bills don’t face the Dolphins until Week 15 so in the meantime, they will have to take it out on their opponents. And speaking of being pissed off, no one showed that quite more passionately than offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey. The Bills’ coach went viral after a clip showed him having a meltdown in the booth following the game.
“We saw it on the bus ride going to the airport,” Allen said. “He’s the one who showed it to me. Everybody’s going crazy about it and I can tell you our guys freaking love seeing that.”
The people that won’t love seeing an incensed Bills team are the Ravens – namely their secondary. This is a unit that has been getting lit up, hence the Bills vs Ravens betting odds. Having allowed the most total yards and passing yards in the NFL, it’s no wonder the NFL Week 4 odds have Buffalo-Baltimore as the week’s highest scoring game. Of course, it’s also because of the man under-center himself…
Can Jackson Sustain an All-Time Great Season?
While the Ravens’ defense keeps allowing opponents to score, Jackson and the offense keep scoring right back. Indeed, the former MVP should be the favorite to win this year’s Offensive Player of the Year Award. He’s scored more total touchdowns than 30 NFL teams. Jackson also leads the league in passer rating (119.0) and adjusted net yards per pass attempt (8.99). Both seem unsustainable. But doubt the scorching-hot Jackson at your own risk.
“I’ll say this about his process,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said of his quarterback. “What’s he, in his fifth year now? So, his process as a quarterback in terms of preparation has taken another step. He’s always been going this way. That’s another step in that direction. I think he’s really kind of gotten to a point where he’s really kind of found himself in terms of his quarterback preparation process.”
Jackson is 25 and in a contract year. He’ll put up lofty stats thanks to the improvements on offense, namely to the offensive line. But the defense playing badly could only help his case as both an MVP and as the next richest man in the NFL; the Ravens need him that badly.
Now, Jackson gets to prove it further by upsetting Buffalo per the Bills vs Ravens Betting odds. He and Baltimore can exploit a Bills team with a long NFL injury report. Whether do they it or not, it’s hard to envision even the vaunted Bills defense slowing them down.
