Ravens Are An AFC Wild Card Favorite, But Is It That Easy?

Baltimore’s (8-6) season has been one long slog. After a great 3-0 start the team fell off the map. Then, thanks more to the struggles of team in front of them than any great play on their behalf the Birds climbed back into the playoff race. And with a few key wins and few key losses by competitors Baltimore is now the favorite team in the AFC to snag the first wild card.

As anyone knows football betting lines can be quite unpredictable and it’s hard to say how the Ravens will finish the season. With a game left against the hated Steelers in the Burgh, and then a roadie to the Bay to take on a very mercurial Raiders team anything can happen in the team’s sports betting schedule.

The game against the Steelers (7-7) will not be fun. And even though the Carrion Eaters won the first game at home Pittsburgh didn’t have Big Ben. They’ll have him this time and have the online betting advantage of playing at Hienz Field in front a hostile crowd fueled by hatred of the Ravens and Iron City Beer.

And even though the Raiders are a team that has nearly a dozen QBs rotating in and out of the game, somehow, over the past month this team has gotten the job done. Especially against the AFC North. Oakland (5-9) is 3-0 against the division and will be looking to make a clean sweep in sports betting.

So while the Ravens might be the favorites they hardly have a free pass to the post season. If they get in they’ll have to earn it.
