Fabulous 5: TNF Week 8 Pick
Welcome back for another special edition of the Fabulous 5 NFL picks against the Las Vegas spread! Over the last two weeks, the Fabulous 5 has gone 8-1-1 raising this year's winning percentage to an incredible 62%! Remember, the goal is to finish the season above 55% to be profitable. We're going to kick off Week 8 with another Thursday Night Football game as the first pick of five.
BALTIMORE RAVENS (-3)
The Baltimore Ravens have looked anything but consistent this season and welcome in the under-the-radar 4-2 Miami Dolphins. Yeah, somehow the Miami Dolphins have squeaked out four wins under our noses without anyone noticing. Doesn't make much sense, but good for them! The good news is, Ravens QB Joe Flacco has a knack for playing well in primetime games. Since 2012, Flacco is 11-6 in primetime games and 5-1 in playoff games. What I'm trying to say is, my dude Joe Flacco shows up to play when the world is watching. The other good news is, the Ravens slightly edge out the Dolphins in all but one category that matters when handicapping. Baltimore is also 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games when playing against Miami. Is Joe Flacco elite? When he's not being a slop during 1 pm games, yes! Lay the points, take the Ravens at home under the spot light.
