Ravens Patriots Preview Conference Finals
The Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots square off in the AFC Conference Finals at Gillette Stadium. The pressure is on for both these teams as they are one game away from the Super Bowl.
Baltimore was a 20-13 winner at home against the Texans in the AFC divisional playoff game. It was a close game and if it were not for the defense of the Ravens they could have easily lost. The Ravens did not cover the 7.5 point spread and the low scoring offences of both teams took the game under the total. But there were some bright spots. The Texans shut down the running game of the Ravens and they were forced to throw the ball more than usual. But Flaco and his receivers looked to be on the same page most of the game, Anquan Boldin had one of his best games of the season pulling in a few remarkable catches. Ed Reed will be a big question mark although he says he is ready to play he might not be 100%, he is one of the biggest play makers on the Ravens defense and is key to their success. The rest of the team looks to be healthy and ready to play come Sunday.
New England could have just sat out another bye and played their practice squad as they easily got by Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos 45-10. The beat down came as no surprise as the Patriots were 14 point favorites going in. “The Broncos were the team we thought they were” And the Patriots didn’t let them off the hook, simply put you cannot put much emphasis on the game as the Broncos are not a good team, they just seem to have the football gods on their side.
The New England offence is healthy and so is their defense but they will need a stellar performance from both side of the field to win this game.
Ravens Patriots Betting Pick Conference Finals
This will be an exciting game to watch as the only offensive powerhouse left takes on one of the league’s best defenses. Thus far it has been the defensive teams coming away with the wins and I think this trend will continue with a Ravens victory over the Pats. If the Ravens can get their offence going, and if their defense can make some stops this game will be close.
Bottom line; I will be betting on the Ravens to cover the 7.5 points spread, also if you like this pick you might as well bundle it with the under as if the Ravens have a shot of covering spread the score will be low.
