The Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints will cap off Week 9 of the NFL with a Monday Night Football game at the Caesars Superdome.

Despite sitting at 3-5, the Saints are still well in the fight for the top spot in the NFC South. In order to get there, they need to fix their turnovers issue. They rank dead last in the NFL in average turnover margin at -1.1.

It's important to note that Ravens TE, Mark Andrews, has been officially ruled out for the game.

Let's dive into the odds for this interconference prime time showdown.

Ravens vs. Saints Odds, Spread, and Total

Ravens vs. Saints Odds, Spread, and Total Movement

The Ravens opened as 3.5-point favorites, but has moved down to Ravens -2. The total moved down one points from 48 to 47.

Ravens vs. Saints Prediction and Pick

Believe it or not, Andy Dalton and the Saints offense ranks fifth in the league in yards per play heading into this week. Turnovers have killed them, but when they limit those, they're one of the top offenses in the league.

New Orleans also ranks eighth in third down conversion rate and seventh in red zone touchdown scoring percentage. Those are the types of numbers that lead to a lot of points being scored.

It goes without saying that the Ravens offense has also been one of the best in the NFL They rank eighth in yards per play, ninth in third down conversion rate, and 15th in red zone scoring.

Even without Mark Andrews in the game, I have faith that Baltimore will be able to move the ball down the field.

I'll sit back and root for points in this week's edition of Monday Night Football.
