Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Oakland Raiders-Baltimore Ravens Week 4 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Oakland Raiders (1-2) vs. (-3.5) Baltimore Ravens (3-0), 1 p.m.
Mike: Raiders. I’m really not sure what to make of either team, but I think the Raiders have the higher ceiling. That half-point makes all the difference, too.
Ricky: Raiders. The Ravens’ 3-0 start is fraudulent. There, I said it. Any team can look OK over a three-week span against the Bills, Browns and Jaguars, who own a combined 1-8 record this season.
Andre: Raiders. I’m still not a believer in the Ravens. They’ve only scored four touchdowns, which is low, considering they’ve played the Bills, Browns and Jags. They’ve also allowed 4.5 yards per play (second in NFL), which is easy to do, considering they’ve played the Bills, Browns and Jags. Let’s see if that defense will be able to keep Derek Carr and Co. in check.
