Week 6 picks for Ravens vs. Chargers

Before you turn on the Chargers vs. Ravens game, you need to see the picks from SportsLine’s proven model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,900 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 6 of the 2021 season on an incredible 125-83 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Ravens vs. Chargers, the model predicts that Los Angeles stays within the spread. Both teams have become decidedly pass-oriented, as Baltimore’s running back situation has been ravaged by injuries. Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert has continued his ascent into the upper echelon of NFL stars with his strong play early this season.

The Chargers have had an elite pass defense, but have allowed the most rushing yards in the NFL so far this season with 788. Baltimore’s defense has been the reverse of that, as the Ravens have surrendered the fifth-most passing yards in 2021. That should suit Herbert, who is trending towards finishing with 315 yards with two touchdowns.

Chargers receiver Mike Williams has been on fire to start the season, and SportsLine’s projections also predict that he will combine with Keenan Allen for more than 150 yards and a touchdown. That’s why although Lamar Jackson is expected to carry the Ravens through to another big win, the Chargers have enough firepower to cover in just over 50 percent of simulations.
