The best preseason trend in the NFL starts back up on Thursday, as John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens host the Tennessee Titans in Week 1

Harbaugh's team has won 20 straight preseason games, covering in 17 of them, and he’s been elite in Week 1 of the preseason in his coaching career. 

With all that being said, there is plenty to look forward to with the Titans, as we will likely see Malik Willis and Treylon Burks, the team’s prized rookies, in action at some point on Thursday. 

Here are the odds from WynnBET: 

Titans vs. Ravens Odds, Spread and Total


  • Titans +3.0 (-105)
  • Ravens -3.0 (-115)


  • Titans: +150
  • Ravens: -180


  • 32.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Titans vs. Ravens Odds, Spread and Total Movement in NFL Preseason Week 1

The Titans opened up as four-point dogs against Harbaugh and company, but the line has moved to three points, although it is juiced on the Ravens’ side. 

The total in this game has risen from 31 to 32.5 ahead of Thursday’s game. 

Titans vs. Ravens Prediction and Best Bet

Harbaugh is king of the preseason, and I’m not overthinking this matchup, even though both teams likely won’t have a ton of important players on the field. 

There is some concern that Harbaugh dials things back after the Ravens suffered a ton of injuries in the leadup to the 2021 season, but it’s not like you’re asking Baltimore to cover a huge number. 

As much as I am excited to see Willis, Ravens backup quarterback Tyler Huntley has actual NFL experience and should be able to run the team relatively smoothly in this matchup. 

20 straight wins and a 17-2-1 ATS record is good enough for me. 

Lean: Ravens -3 (-115)
