Joe D's NFL Free Winner

Houston vs. Baltimore, 01/15/2012 13:00
Point Spread: -7½/+100 Baltimore

Today's FREE NFL WINNER is Baltimore over Houston.

In their first meeting back in October, Baltimore prevailed, 29-14. That game was played without WR, Andre Johnson. This game will be played without QB, Matt Schaub. Taylor Yates is at the helm. Yates has just a 60.3% completion rate, 4/3 TD/INT ratio, and a 82.9 QB rating. Texans top-receiver, TE, Owen Daniels injured his hand LW and is questionable here. With the injuries to both Schaub and Daniels, Houston is left with just a running game. They rank 2nd in the NFL on the ground but that is with a solid passing game. Now, Baltimore can key on the run. This makes them very dangerous considering they are the #2 stop unit vs. the rush (92.6 YPG) as it is. Their defense is ferocious, allowing a mere 16.6 PPG. On offense, Ray Rice led the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 2068. QB, Joe Flacco has the luxury of playing at home for the first time in quite a while in the post-season. The Texans are 1-4 ATS their L5 games played against the Ravens while the Ravens are 4-1 ATS their L5 Playoff games played as a favorite. Take Baltimore. Thank you.
