Baltimore Ravens (12-6) @ New England Patriots (13-4), Sunday 6:30 PM (ET)
Just like last season, it will happen again this season, the Patriots and the Ravens battling out for the right to represent AFC Champion in this year’s Super Bowl. And just like last season it will be New England with a home-field advantage. In the case of the Patriots home field is truly a big advantage in the playoffs as they hold the best record with 14 wins and only 3 losses. The Ravens on other hand hold the best record for road playoff games, they are 8-5 on the road and they already beat the Patriots this season in a game played in Baltimore. This will be only the third time both teams meet in a playoff game and I think it will be close as have been the last few games including last season’s Championship game. With lots of momentum I think the Ravens have a chance against Patriots as long as their QB Joe Flacco can play at a level he’s been playing lately. I anticipate close game, this time with different outcome, Ravens win and advance to the big game.
Pick: Ravens 30-27, Result: Ravens 28-13
Against The Spread: Ravens (+7.5)
