The Ravens are 9-3 and have a two-game advantage in the AFC North.
The Redskins are 6-6 and are currently fighting to earn a playoff spot.
But when the Ravens take on Washington this Sunday at FedExField, it will be the Ravens who enter the game as the underdogs.
The Ravens are currently underdogs of between 1.5-2.5 points to the Redskins, according to various oddsmakers online and in Las Vegas.
The Redskins are the favorites after a nationally-televised victory over the Giants on Monday Night Football, giving them three straight victories. Quarterback Robert Griffin III has led the Redskins to become one of the hottest teams in football, which has the oddmakers on their side.
The Ravens, however, dropped last week’s game to the Steelers without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and narrowly beat the Chargers the previous week, which has hurt their perception in the public eye.
Also, playing at home is typically worth about three points, which is part of the reason the Redskins are favored.
