Ravens open as underdogs of a touchdown or more vs. Patriots
The Ravens have a knack for giving the Patriots all they can handle.
Nevertheless, Baltimore has opened as a sizable underdog in Saturday’s divisional-round matchup at New England.
The Patriots have been installed as 7.5-point favorites at multiple Nevada sports books, with the line as low as seven points and as high as 8.5 points, per line-tracking websites.
The Ravens have won twice at New England as underdogs in the postseason, upsetting the Patriots in the 2009 wild card round (+3.5) and in the 2012 AFC title game (+8). They were also narrow 23-20 losers as seven-point underdogs at New England in the 2011 AFC Championship.
Baltimore knocked off Pittsburgh 30-17 on Saturday night at Heinz Field. The Ravens closed as three-point underdogs.
