    Re: Ravens open as 7.5 point favorites, quickly bet up to 9



    The game is now available at approximately 10 books at Oddschecker and it's Ravens -7.5 or -8.

    If you want to bet the winner straight up, the best you can currently get is 1.28 for every $1 bet on the Ravens or $4.10 bet for every $1 on the Texans. Those returns imply the Ravens have a 76% chance to win.

    From a betting standpoint, I wouldn't go anywhere near this game at +9. Way too many variables. The Ravens are rested and if we get a big lead I highly doubt we ease up in the second half.

    I don't see the Ravens losing this and I don't see Pittsburgh winning in New England. Thus, I'm already looking at Championship tickets in New England.

    don't sleep on the texans' defense.

    Much like the first game it will be close for awhile but we'll pull away late and cover. Ravens 27-14

    I'm finding 7.5 points all over the place. Not sure where anyone saw it move to 9 but it looks like it stayed at 7.5.

    football locks has it at -8.

    I wouldn't lay that many points with the Ravens.

    I am seeing -7.5 on all the online books in Oddschecker now. There were 2 with even odds at -8 this morning, but I never noticed -9 with even odds anywhere.

    Here is something I find interesting. The best decimal payoff on the Steelers today is 1.28 (you win $0.28 for every $1 bet). The best payoff on the Ravens is $1.29. So in essence, the betting public seems to think the Ravens next week are as likely to win as the Steelers are today versus Denver.

    My book still has it at -9(+115 though) and that is what it was from last night. Betonline.

    Still too much.

    Week 1 won by 28
    Week 3 won by 30
    Week 4 won by 17
    Week 6 vs Hou won by 15
    Week 13 won by 14
    Week 14 won by 14

    I think you are wrong! 14+ point win in the NFL are blowouts.

    Why shouldn't people act this will be an easy win, we have not lost at home, the first time we played Hou they had a much much better QB and still lost by 15, IMO I do not see any way the Ravens lose to the Texans!

    So if a team is ahead by a TD all game and late in the 4th quarter, they score another TD, they have now blown out the other team?

    Makes no sense, IMO.

    ML typically sets the point spreads, which is a common misperception among sports fans...most think they're independent. Though with the Steelers at 28 and Ravens at 29, it's interesting to see them indicating the Steelers are bigger favorites even though the spread says otherwise.

    BTW, I did see Ravens -9 at Pinnacle...think I like the thought of a sweet middle buying the six points to get Ravens -1.5 and Texans +9 if I could buy at Pinnacle.
