Week 7 of the NFL schedule concludes with the Arizona Cardinals hosting the Baltimore Ravens. Books opened the Cardinals as 7.5-point home favorites, but that has since moved to -10.

If you’re still on the fence about who to bet in Monday Night Football, Covers enlisted the help of expert NFL bloggers to make a pitch for their favorite team. This week, Matthew Stevens of Ravens blog Baltimore Beatdown and Jess Root of Cardinals blog Revenge of the Birds strap on the pads and debate which team will not only win, but cover the spread Monday night.

Steve Smith and the offense

The Ravens have had a solid offense through the first six games of their season. Currently putting up an average of 23.8 points per game, we’ve seen the Ravens tear apart some not-so-bad defenses in Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Most of that has come as Steve Smith Sr. has done his job and is on pace for a 1,500 yard season for his final year.

While the Ravens’ defense has been their Achilles heel (pun intended, sorry Suggs), if this team can start putting up 40 points in a game like they very well could on Monday Night Football, they could not only cover the spread but win the game.

Ravens keep em close

The Ravens will likely be in yet another close matchup. Every week, we see the game come down to a final drive by either team to put the necessary points on the board to come out the victor.

Regardless of how bad the game is before that point, there has always been a final drive simply because the Ravens have kept each game’s difference to a 4.2 point average. After six games, the furthest game to get away from the Ravens was against the Denver Broncos and that was only six points.
