Monday Night Football, Week 16. Tonight the San Francisco 49ers host the Baltimore Ravens in what could well be a preview of this season’s Super Bowl at 8:15 pm EST. The 49ers are 6.5 point home favorites against the Ravens according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

The 11-3 Baltimore Ravens currently have the best record in the AFC. The Ravens have won four straight games and eight of the last nine. A victory over the 49ers tonight would give them a one game lead over the Miami Dolphins for the top overall seed in the AFC with two games to play.

The 11-3 San Francisco 49ers currently have the best record in the NFC. The 49ers have won six straight games. A victory over the Ravens tonight would give the 49ers a one game lead for top seed in the NFC with two games to play.

These two teams are probably the two best teams in the NFL right now. They both are well balanced teams with top ten units on both offense and defense. The 49ers probably have the better offense, while the edge goes to the Ravens on defense. What a great matchup to conclude the Monday Night Football schedule for this year.

I’m taking the 49ers to take care of business at home against a very tough Ravens team, but it would not surprise me at all if the Ravens prevail.
