Baltimore Ravens vs Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills over Baltimore Ravens: We won with Balt last week so this is not a complete fade on them. If not for the miracle hail mary by Ariz Buff would be on an 11 game s/u win streak. Buff is 8-1 at home only loss was to Kc. Yes Balt will be able to move the ball on the ground. Yes very likely Jackson is going to break off 2-3 big runs. However will it be enough. Buff has a huge adv in the passing game. If Balt falls behind this is not a team built to do so. Balt has played the 29th ranked strength of schedule Buff 11th.

Indiana Pacers vs Golden State Warriors

Golden State Warriors over Indiana Pacers: Ind is in a tough spot. They are already short handed. They are off a tough game vs. Sac where they lost and their key players played heavy minutes. This will be their 3rd game in 4 nights. Curry is off one of his worst shooting games all time. I am expecting a bounce back. Gs is no longer the team that plays at a fast pace. In fact Ind attempts to play faster. With the return of Green Gs is playing much better and they have a strong bench.
