Baltimore Ravens vs New England Patriots Betting Preview
This Sunday the Baltimore Ravens face the New England Patriots for a place in the Super Bowl final.
The Ravens managed a difficult win last week and are generally considered the underdogs in this game; however, the team will be determined to win.
The bookies have given the Ravens odds of 17/5 to win; however, the Patriots odds are far smaller at 2/7.
The Ravens’ game against the No. 1 seeded Denver Broncos last week was outstanding and they will need to find similar form if they hope to win this one.
The team has been helped by the return of Ray Lewis from injury; he has 30 tackles over his last two games and is undoubtedly the leader of the team.
The Ravens will also be trying to avenge last year’s AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots which was decided by a dropped Lee Evans touchdown and a biffed Billy Cundiff field goal.
The Patriots have looked excellent all season; they lead the NFL with 1,191 plays from scrimmage this season with a 34.8 points average per game.
While the Patriots are certainly the stronger team on paper, it will definitely be an exciting game with the Ravens giving it their all.
