Last week, the Baltimore Ravens consolidated themselves as the best preseason team ever, tying an NFL record of 19 preseason wins. Even though preseason wins and losses don't really matter for anything, it's still a fun accolade to have.
The Ravens will now travel to Washington, hoping to win their 20th preseason game in a row. The Football Team has had mixed results so far, winning last week against the Cincinnati Bengals but losing week 1 against the New England Patriots.

Ravens vs Football Team | Current NFL odds, spreads, betting lines and predictions
- Spread: Ravens -3.5 (-107).
- Moneyline: Ravens -200, Football Team +160.
- Total: 33.5 (Over -105, Under -120).
Will the Ravens take the game more seriously than they should, considering there's a record to break? It looks improbable. Lamar Jackson, for example, hasn't played at all during the preseason, and there's no reason for him to play against Washington as well.
This game will probably see a low scoring battle between two dominant defenses, and the under is a good bet here. I wouldn't trust the Ravens to cover the deficit, even though they always tend to win their preseason games.
