NFL Market Update : Books ended up with more balance than expected on SF/ATL as far as SIDE goes as some "late" money on Home Dog helped.. OVER is getting one-sided by public on SF/ATL..so even w/ some "Steam" on UNDER it won't help limit much of the exposure. RAVENS getting lots of love as well in late game on Spread & Money-Line..OVER is also leaving books exposed even w/ wiseguy's help.
Underdogs of more than seven points in the playoffs are 50-65-1 against the spread since 1968. The Ravens were 8- to 8.5-point underdogs as of Friday afternoon.
The Ravens have won twice in their last 22 games as underdogs of more than seven points.
The Patriots are 136-36 straight-up as favorites under Bill Belichick.
The Patriots are 12-5 straight-up in revenge games under Bill Belichick, 13-4 against the spread. The Ravens defeated New England, 31-30, in Week 3.
The OVER is 40-15 in the Patriots’ last 55 games overall and 22-8 in the last 30 at Gillette Stadium. The last five Ravens-Patriots games have averaged 48.4 points.
Fourteen of the 23 Patriots playoff games under Belichick have stayed under the total. The Patriots, under Belichick, have been in 28 games where the total was greater than 50. Sixteen of those games stayed under the total.
Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has made 30 of 33 field goals this season, 4-of-4 from 50-plus yards.
Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski has made 29 of 35 field goals this season, including his last 10 attempts.
The Ravens are a very good team on a run and they seem like they are getting the bounces in every game they play. However this is the Patriots. The new offense and the awakening of the running game has made this team even more dangerous...the defense can blitz more and the aging d of the Ravens will be worn out after an overtime game at Mile High.
