Ravens/49ers

Initial lean here is Ravens plus the points. Have to do analyzing but what are the thoughts of the den at this moment in time?

Ravens +points

I'm not much of a moneyline player. I expect the Ravens to win a close game outright.

SF has an edge in O-line and D-line, but I like the Ravens experience with Boldin, Leach, Rice and Flacco on offense and the names you already know on defense.

I also consider Kapernick a "rookie" at QB. I don't see a rookie QB winning the Superbowl, no matter how good he is. (although anything is surely possible).

It will be a great game I suspect, but I'll probably be playing Balt plus the points and perhaps the under.

I can only guarantee one thing. Coach Harbaugh will be hosting that Lombardi trophy.

taking the Ravens at +3 or more, if the line goes down under that (I bet with my local so I can't get a line until game day) I'll have to think more about it.

Ravens are peaking at the right time. No comparison between their defense now and in the regular season. They made Brady look helpless. That's something.
The Niners D, by comparison, is suspect.

Kaepernick is great, but the Niners are not as tight, as a team, as the Ravens. They have egos that are learning to play within the team (Vernon Davis, Crabtree). You ask them a question and they say 'it's not about me; it's about the team'. As if they are just learning so basic a concept. Meanwhile, the Ravens have gathered around Lewis and are as tight a bunch as it gets.

This may come down to the genius of Kaepernick, who's been unstoppable and could be the best player I've ever seen, versus the team spirit of the Ravens.

The Niners want to run up the score, and have a suspect defense, so I may look at a couple of parlays: Niners x Over, and Ravens x Under.

The Niners are not as tight as a team? Sorry, but unless you are a player there, you have no basis for that statement.

The way this poll and many others are favoring the doggie at 2/1 clip solidifies my fading of the Ravens.

THANKS

I appreciate all the participation with the poll and will post an official play before the game. Going to have to look at this one a bit closer and hopefully find a angle or some intangible to exploit. Pretty evenly matched teams and I dont know for sure but I lean to neither brother wanting to run up the score on the other which kinda makes me like the under. Still checking as 411 used to say...

Niners & the under

Niners matchup numbers are all better than Ravens.

They know each other, so defense game, go under.

% bets on Ravens are going down consistantly throughout the week.

The betting public is correct when moving the money line in BALTIMORE games 73% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (27-10)
