Spread in BAL-NE game drops slightly
FOXBORO, MA (The Spread) – The spreads for the Divisional round of the 2015 NFL playoffs have remained steady but the line of the Ravens-Patriots’ game has dropped slightly.
After the Ravens beat the Steelers on Saturday night in the Wildcard round the spread for the Baltimore-New England Divisional round matchup opened at 7.5 at most online and Vegas sports books. But over the past 24 hours the line has dropped to the key number of 7 at most books, including at online sports book BetDSI.
The total for this matchup has also dropped, going from 49 down to either 48.5 or 48, depending on which sports book you view. For what it’s worth, the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between the Ravens and Patriots when the game is played in New England. The under is also 5-1 in the Patriots’ last six games overall.
There hasn’t been much traction in the other Divisional games this weekend. The Seahawks opened as 11-point favorites and that’s where the line sits at most books, although at some online books the spread is sitting at 10.5. The Packers are also either 6 or 6.5-point favorites versus the Cowboys while the Broncos are 7-point favorites over the Colts across the board.
