Colts vs. Ravens Over Under

Kickoff: 1:00pm EST. Sunday, January 6, 2013
Location: M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore, MD
TV: CBS. Pregame show starts at 12:00

The Colts vs. Ravens over/under opened at 46.5, quickly went down to 46, and then back up to 47 yesterday. At the time I’m writing this article (Saturday @ 7:15pm ET), the total is still at 47 at every major Las Vegas and online sportsbook. Sharps were betting the under early on, and the public has been betting the over.

Colts vs. Ravens Over/Under Odds: AFC Wild Card

I’m with the sharps in this one, and I’m taking the under. Plus, the public has done us a favor by betting the over and giving us an extra 1/2 point. With money going towards the over right now, I won’t be shocked if we see 47.5 before game time, but it’s hard to say for sure. We’ll also see pressure on the under from sharps who didn’t get in early, so that could offset the public betting.

Ravens vs. Colts Over/Under Analysis

The Baltimore defense is getting some players back, namely Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, and possibly Bernard Pollard. Obviously these players make them better, but besides their actual play, if you’re a Ravens defensive player do you want to let down Ray Lewis on what could be the final game of his career? You sure don’t, and I do expect this to help inspire the rest of the Ravens defensive unit.

Although the Ravens defense hasn’t looked like they have in previous years, they’ve still managed to rank #12 in the league, giving up 21.5 points per game. It’s not great, but considering the injuries they’ve had this season, it’s respectable.

I really think this is the key to the game. I could get all into stats and player matchups, but when all is said and done, it’s the Ravens defense that should be the difference.

The Colts passing defense should be ‘good enough’ to keep Joe Flacco and the Ravens from running away with it. Plus, the Ravens will be running the ball, looking to eat time off the clock and keep Andrew Luck off the field. If they can run the ball successfully (I think they will), then the under is clearly the way to go. The Colts rushing defense is bad, ranked 29th in the NFL giving up 137.5 RYPG. How happy should this make Ravens fans? Happier than Ray Rice vs. the Colts in the playoffs.

Strange Stat of the Week: The Colts have given up 24.2 PPG, but they’re only scoring 22.3 PPG. Yeah, you read that right. This 11-5 team was -30 on net points for the year, and they’re the only playoff team who had negative net points. With that said, they were beat by 35 points by the Patriots in week 11. If you throw out that game, they’re +4 on net points, which is still crappy for a playoff team.

As mentioned above, the Ravens vs. Colts over/under is 47 (-110) everywhere right now. I expect this to be a fairly low scoring game, and I’ve picked the Colts to cover the spread.

My Ravens/Colts Over Under Pick

With the Colts, it’s hard to know what we’re going to get. They’re capable of putting up 30+ in the right situations, but this isn’t that situation. I think the Ravens will hold them to 20-24 points. I think the Ravens are good for 21-27, giving us a range of 41-51 points and a slight edge for the under.

Bet Under 47 (-110) at BetOnline.com

For the Colts/ Ravens over under, I like the under for as low as 46.5. If it gets to 46 when you’re ready to bet, I would stay away from this wager entirely.
