RV: 5* NFL CHAMPIONSHIP 92% POWER SYSTEM WINNER
Baltimore vs. New England,
01/20/2013 18:30 EDT,
Score: 28 - 13
Point Spread: +8/-108 Baltimore
On Sunday the AFC Selection is on the Baltimore Ravens. Game 303 at 6:30 eastern. The last 3 games between these two have been decided by 3 or less points. Had this been a regular season the line would be no more than 6 points. While there are some situations pertaining to New England and home teams of a win and cover. There some equally disturbing situations that plays against the Patriots. Like playing against teams that scored 40 or more last out. These teams have failed to cover 20 of 23 times in the next game. The Ravens have covered 7 of the last 8 on the road in Playoff games vs non division opponents. In computer Simulation the Ravens were the choice when getting 8 or more points. While the Patriots have 31-30 same season revenge the Ravens have Conference Championship revenge from last years heart breaking loss. In that game wide receiver Lee Evans dropped an easy touchdown and then Ravens Kicker Billy Cundiff missed an easy 32 yard game tying field goal. Baltimore did get luck last week winning the game despite maybe the poorest special teams performance in playoff history, allowing both a Punt and Lick off return for touchdowns. When allowing just one special teams score your chances greatly decrease, let alone two. Baltimore believes they are a team of destiny and when you play like they did last week and win, sometime you gather momentum and play much better. The Patriots will be without Gronkowski and may not get the same types of offensive production they had last week from some of their Unheralded players. We will back Balty in this one and take the Ravens and the points here tonight.
