    Patriots 7 1/2 Point Favorites v. Ravens

    Gotta believe Houston would have been double digit underdogs had they defeated Balt.

    Damn-that is a huge spread.....Even more shocking than the Denver game, IMO!

    MGM has it at 7.5 o/u 50. Pats have plenty of motivation for this one already. The Ravens are already running their mouths.

    No team in the AFC Championship game should need to be motivated.

    Just a feeling but Baltimore won't even be competitive in this game. Pats will at least 30 and I can't see more than 14 from the Flacco and the offense.

    Give the points.:D

    No Jersey Selected

    Unreal...I have seen too many playoff collapses and horrific D performances this season to feel very confident in that line.

    Ravens are going to get blown out by halftime.

    It may be starting at 9 but it will end at below 7, I predict. No way it stays at 9. The home field doesn't add that many points.

    Don't like either of these...like the unders and I would have guessed the spread around 6 points, but these guys tend to know what people want.

    No motivation needed by either team but I do like it when we fly under the radar (like this week) for a change.

    I capped the game and according to my calculations the Pats should be favored by 11.

    F the Ravens.....worry about the G'men.

    It would be hard to take another loss to them!

    People are already pounding the +9 (-135). Honestly I think that line is to high. I was guessing it would be in the Vegas zone (4.5 to 5.5). After some more thought I settled on around 7-7.5.

    The Pats stymied a top run game as they more or less dismembered a Broncos team that made the Steelers look bad last week. Meanwhile, the Ravens couldn't run the ball at all today and had to go all-in to beat a third string QB with half a dozen or so NFL starts and will be relying on Joe Flacco to put them over the top next week. I'm surprised the spread is only nine points.

    The Playoffs aren't about who is the best team, but who is playing the best in the middle of January. Right now, the Giants and Pats are playing the best and seem to be on a collision course for a rematch.

    **** the Ravens. Patriots are going to win the SB and we'll never have to hear that spygate drivel ever again.
