Super Bowl Pick – Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers

Super Bowl Pick – Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers meet in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, Feb. 3 at the Superdome in New Orleans (6:30 pm ET, CBS). The NFL Odds for the 2013 Super Bowl have the 49ers as a 4-point favorite and the over/under total at 49. Why the Ravens will cover One word: defense. Actually, two words: Ray Lewis. Ever since Lewis told his teammates that he would retire after this year’s playoffs, the teams has stepped up in all areas, but none more so than on defense. The Ravens defensive play has started to resemble the dominant Baltimore defenses of the past decade. The numbers don’t lie: Through three postseason games, Baltimore has given up a league-low 19 points per game. And it’s not as if Baltimore has stifled weak defenses – or weak quarterbacks. All the Ravens have done is effectively frustrate and/or dominate two future hall of fame QBs and one of the NFL’s best rookie pivots. Against the Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore held Andrew Luck and his offense to no touchdowns and were in his face all afternoon. The Colts ended up with nine points. In the divisional round, the Ravens made quarterback Peyton Manning look average. While Denver scored 35 points, Manning was picked off twice. And in the AFC Championship, Tom Brady and the Patriots managed just 13 points, and were shut out in the second half. Harbaugh is 11-3 ATS  in road games vs. excellent passing teams with a completion pct. of 64% or better as the coach of Baltimore. Why...

Marquette vs Louisville – College Basketball Odds

Marquette vs Louisville – College Basketball Odds Marquette travels to Louisville on February 3rd, 2013.  The game is scheduled to tip-off at 2:00 pm est on ESPN. The oddsmakers have made Louisville a 10.5 point favorite in this Big East showdown. Marquette Preview Marquette’s overall record is 15-4, Big East record is 6-1, ATS overall is 8-7, ATS home is 4-4, and ATS away is 2-2. Marquette is tied for first place in the Big East conference with Syracuse. They are coached by Buzz Williams, who is one of the most underrated coaches in the country. The last two years he got them into the sweet sixteen, and he just might do it again this year. Marquette suffered on real bad loss on the road to Green Bay, 49 to 47. Their other losses have been to Florida, Butler, and Cincinnati. Their best wins so far have been over Georgetown and Pittsburgh. Their leading scorer is a kid named Vander Blue. He is a 6’-4” wing guard that averages 15 points and 3 boards a game. Their best big guy is Davante Gardner. He stands 6’-8”, weighs 290 pounds, and averages 13 points and 6 rebounds a game. Junior Cadougan is their point guard and he is 6’-1” tall, and averages 9 points and 4 assist a game. Jamil Wilson is another post player that gets a lot of minutes. He is 6’-7”, 225 pounds and averages 9 points and 4 boards a game. Marquette is really not big enough to match up with Louisville’s inside. But, their wings are tough, and they are getting better.  Marquette is playing...

NFL Picks – Packers Vikings Odds

In one of the biggest games of Week 17, the Minnesota Vikings will host the Green Bay Packers in an NFC North showdown. The game is scheduled for 4:25 EST at Mall of America Field and will be televised locally on FOX. Oddsmakers currently have the Packers listed as a 3-point road favorite with the total posted at 46.5 points. Why Green Bay Will Cover The Pack needs a win to secure the 2nd seed and a wild-card round bye next week. A win would also guarantee them a home playoff game in the divisional round; January in Wisconsin would be a huge advantage for them. Aaron Rodgers is playing better than he has all season. He is a master at picking apart defenses with his pinpoint accuracy and stellar decision-making. He rarely forces the ball into tight coverage and, when pressured, can improvise outside of the pocket giving his receivers time to get open deep.  In the last five games against Minnesota, he has completed over 73% of his passes with 14 TD’s and only 3 INT’s – not surprisingly, he has won all 5 matchups. The Pack is getting healthy on both sides of the ball. Expected back for this game are Jordy Nelson and Alex Green on offense and DE Jerel Worthy on defense.  Minnesota will still be missing offensive star #2 in Percy Harvin, while Brian Robison, Antoine Winfield, and even Adrian Peterson are on the injury list – with the first two questionable. The Packers have dominated on the road against teams with a winning record at home, to the tune of 19-7 ATS...

Giants Eagles Odds

The New York Giants (8-7) host the Philadelphia Eagles (4-11) Sunday at 1:00 PM ET in a Week 17 NFC East division clash. Oddsmakers have listed the Giants as a 9.5-point favorite and have set the total at 46.5. Why New York Covers This is a playoff game for the Giants, and their performance in the clutch the past few years indicates that they thrive under the pressure to win big games. While they need a slew of other teams to win as well, those other teams are playing winnable games and things could settle into place nicely if they take care of Philly. Expect a heavier than normal dose of Ahmad Bradshaw and David Martin, as the Giants will try to exploit the Eagles 22nd ranked rush defense, which is missing two key players in Fletcher Cox and Mychal Kendricks. The tandem is averaging over 4.5 yards per carry and 15-18 carries each is not out of the question. The Eagles pass protection is also exactly what the Giants struggling pass rush needs.  Philly has allowed 47 sacks – 27 in the nine games Vick has started. Vick has a penchant for holding the ball too long and trying to do too much with his legs; Jason Pierre-Paul could have a field day if these tendencies continue. This is a revenge game for the Giants, and they don’t want their season to end because of a loss to not only the struggling Eagles, but a divisional rival as well. Philly is 0-5-1 in their last six games against teams with winning records, and 3-11-1 overall ATS. Why Philadelphia...
