Texans Ravens Preview
The Houston Texans will hope to run past the Baltimore Ravens as they play today in the AFC divisional playoff game at M&T Bank.
Last week the Texans were able to get by the Bengals 31-10. It was the Texans first playoff win lead by running back Arian Foster. Foster rushed for over 150 yards and 2 TD’s. TJ Yates played his first career NFL playtoff game, it wasn’t his best performance but it was good enough for the win. He went 11 of 20 for 159 yards and a TD. Today the Texans will need just as good or better of an effort from Foster, as well as the Texans defense will need to pressure the Falco and the Baltimore front line early to limit their passing opportunities.
On the other side we have the Baltimore Ravens who rested last week with a playoff Bye. The Ravens were 12-4 on the season averaging 23.6 points per game and like every year their defense was stellar only giving up an average of 16 points a game. The offense of the Ravens has been hit or miss, Flaco has never seemed to get on the same page with his receivers, but lucky for the ravens they have a little guy in the back field called Ray Rice. Rice was one of the leaders in the NFL this season in rushing and fantasy points he has been the only consistent producer on the Ravens offence. Today the Ravens will need to have their A game if they hope to advance to the next round of playoffs.
Texans Ravens Betting Pick
My Super Bowl pick all year long has been the Baltimore Ravens and I am sticking to it, they will beat the Texans today and cover the 7.5 point spread. The Texans are to inexperienced and the Ravens matchup better on offence and defense and they play great at home! Expect the fans in Baltimore to get loud as they play as the 12 man on the field.
Bottom Line; Baltimore Ravens win this game covering spread, if you are feeling lucky parlay it with the under as I don’t see these teams scoring many points.
