The Baltimore Ravens have provided entertainment every time they have stepped onto the field in the 2021 season while the Denver Broncos have methodically disposed of 3 still-winless teams with maximum efficiency.

Sunday’s 4:25pm ET game at Mile High should be one of the better games of the week in terms of quality, and it’s no surprise that oddsmakers have found it hard to separate the teams.

With so many talented players on both teams the game is sure to be worth watching, and a same game parlay can add extra spice.

Let’s take a look at the parlay we’ve prepared, which pays +648 odds with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Baltimore Ravens ML (-118)

Over 44.5 points (-114)

Melvin Gordon anytime TD scorer (+120)

Parlay odds: +648

Baltimore Ravens ML (-118)

A curveball was thrown at the betting for this game on Wednesday, when Ravens QB Lamar Jackson sat out practice with a sore back, but providing he is good to go on Sunday, the Ravens have a great chance of becoming the first team this season to beat the Broncos.

The AFC North team are the best opposition Denver has faced by some distance — the Giants, Jaguars and Jets have a combined 0-9 record, and although the Broncos inflicted 3 of those defeats, those teams have shown nothing in their other games to suggest that Vic Fangio’s team haven’t had the easiest first 3 weeks schedule in the league. That ends this week as the Broncos have to prove themselves against a team who made the playoffs last season and expect to return.

Don’t spend too long trying to get your head around the Ravens’ results – they have lost a game they should have won against Las Vegas, beaten then-Super Bowl favorites Kansas City, and almost lost to winless Detroit. The bottom line is they’re still capable of beating the best on their day. Denver could not have done much more than they have already, recording 3 wins of at least 10 points, but the Ravens rate the value while the oddsmakers consider it virtually a pick ’em game.

Over 44.5 points (-114)

None of Denver’s games has produced more than 40 points, but they have yet to take part in a competitive contest with both teams contributing to the score. Baltimore’s first 2 games had 60 and 71 points respectively, and while the total was only 36 against the Lions (19-17), they left plenty on the table, not least through some egregious Marquise Brown drops. Justin Tucker even missed a field goal as well as booting over the 66-yarder! It’s not too hard to see both these teams scoring in at least the mid-20s to take this total over.

Melvin Gordon anytime touchdown scorer (+120)

Taking a Denver scorer as well as a Ravens win helps to boost the odds of the parlay, but with plenty of points hopefully being scored, Denver will need to contribute to the total at some point.

Gordon has scored in 2 of Denver’s 3 games this season, and with KJ Hamler joining Jerry Jeudy on IR this week the Broncos’ once abundant offensive options are being reduced to a nucleus of RBs Gordon and Javonte Williams, tight ends Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam and still-healthy wideouts Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton.

The Ravens conceded 2 rushing scores to Josh Jacobs of the Raiders, 1 against pass-happy KC and 1 to each of the Lions’ RBs, D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams, last week.
