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 Baltimore Ravens-New York Giants Week 6 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Baltimore Ravens (3-2) at (-3) New York Giants (2-3), Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
Mike: Ravens. In Baltimore’s three wins, Joe Flacco was sacked seven times — he was sacked five times in their two losses. The Giants can’t generate a pass rush, and I think a new look on offense will help the Ravens get back on track.
Ricky: Ravens. Still don’t love the Ravens, but I love this upset pick. The Giants have lost three in a row, and their offense looks out of sorts. New York doesn’t have much of a rushing attack, and Baltimore’s defense has been good at stopping the run. Plus, a couple of Giants cornerbacks — Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple — have been banged up.
Andre: Ravens. A game like this between two evenly matched teams usually comes down to turnovers, and the Giants have a minus-7 turnover differential (second-worst in the NFL.)
