Favor Ravens in Week 3, but Pats Still Reign with Futures

Thu, 20 Sep 2012 23:40
A pair of AFC rivals will look to each other as an opportunity to build some early season momentum this Sunday. The Week 3 NFL odds pit the Baltimore Ravens at home against the New England Patriots. After losses in their second weeks, the Pats and Ravens are each desperate to get back on the winning track before their odds of winning the Super Bowl are impacted. Despite their recent losses, however, they still sit at 13/2 odds (New England) and 14/1 odds (Baltimore) respectively. Although New England is favored in the big picture, it’s Joe Flacco and the Ravens getting the NFL oddsmaker’s edge for Week 3. A -3 point spread suggests that the Pats may need to first prove that they can get things done without tight end Aaron Hernandez before they reclaim their spot as a weekly favorite. If there is in fact gas left in the tank for Tom Brady, Wes Welker and company. And if the tight end contingent can bounce back to full health, then it may not be long before New England’s reputation is back to where it’s been for the past decade. Until then, this may be one of the few times there’s an opportunity to get them as moneyline underdogs. NFL Betting at Bovada and get a free 50% bonus.
