Ravens vs Broncos Free Pick

January 11, 2013

The AFC divisional playoffs head to the Mile High City Saturday when the Denver Broncos take on the Baltimore Ravens, with the winner playing in the AFC Championship next week. Denver enters this game with a record of 13-3 straight up and 10-6 against the spread.

Baltimore after having a rough end to their regular season recovered last weekend to win their wildcard game and increase their record to 11-6 straight up and 7-9-1 against the spread.  

Baltimore defeated the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday 24-9 to reach this week’s divisional playoff. Ray Lewis returned from a torn triceps and inspired his teammates as the defense bent often but never broke against the Colts. On offense the Ravens returned to what they do best, run the ball and that helped them to their 15-point victory.

However, things will change this weekend for Baltimore as they take on one of the best offenses in the AFC in the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have won 11 straight games and have the leading candidate for the league’s MVP in quarterback Peyton Manning.

The two teams met in week 15 of this season and Denver defeated Baltimore 34-17. Even though the game was a 17-point victory by the Broncos, they led at one point in the third quarter 31-3.

Denver, with its week off, will be rested and ready to pull all their triggers on offense and will be helped by the wild atmosphere that takes over Mile High Stadium during any game but especially the playoffs.

This game could become lopsided quickly as Denver’s offense was fourth in total yards and second in scoring against a Baltimore defense, that has struggled all season. Even with all of the Ravens top players back on offense, they gave up over 400 yards of offense to the Colts and lost the time of possession contest by almost 15 minutes.

The Ravens are winless in Denver since 2001. The home team has a record of 5 wins and 2 losses against the spread in the last seven games between the two teams.

The current line has Denver favored by 9 ½ points with the total at 46 ½. Denver is just too strong on both sides of the ball and will win this game in convincing fashion. Take Denver and take the OVER.
