Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens Odds

Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens odds were listed at Ravens -3 with a few -3 ½ point lines also observed on the board.  This one opened at Baltimore -4 ½ so the trend has been for the line to move downwards with early betting action on the Broncos.  Nearly 60 percent of sports bettors were on the Ravens at the current line of -3.  Hollywood Sportsbook was offering Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens odds at -3.  Hollywood Sportsbook has been a leader in online sports betting since 1997.

Some important considerations before betting this game:

From NFL.com:

After struggling in recent seasons, Denver's defense has turned it around in 2009. The unit ranks first in the AFC and Elvis Dumervil is one of the biggest reasons for that success. He leads the league with 10 sacks. Baltimore's offensive line, which has allowed seven sacks in its last three games, must keep Dumervil from getting into the backfield and roughing up Joe Flacco.

Ed Reed is one of the league's best players at goading quarterbacks into mistakes. On the other hand, Broncos QB Kyle Orton has taken extraordinary care of the football this season, with his only turnover coming on a desperation heave toward the end zone as time expired in the first half against New England. If Reed is able to bait Orton into an uncharacteristic miscue, the Ravens' chances improve significantly.

From Scout.com:

Although Denver has had some success running the ball between the tackles, it has yet to face a run defense as stout as the Ravens' up the middle. Look for Denver to adjust this week by trying to run the ball wide and versus a Ravens defense that has been out of position often this season.

Denver has adjusted very well to its new 3-4 scheme. Look for Denver to bring a lot of inside blitz pressure to force QB Joe Flacco to get outside of the pocket. The Broncos don't want Flacco to be able to step into his throws in the middle of the pocket.

Ravens RB Ray Rice: Rice is one of the most underrated running backs in the NFL. In Week 6, he took the game over and almost led the Ravens to a win in Minnesota. He needs more touches, though. Although Flacco has played excellent football, the Ravens are suffering from an identity crisis right now as they have gotten away from the running game far too often in recent weeks.

Denver Quarterback Kyle Orton has thrown only one interception in six games.

The home team has won 7 of the last 8 in this series.  Denver has won the last two in this series while Baltimore won the previous four.

The Broncos are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a Straight Up win.

The Broncos are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC.

The Broncos are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week.

The Broncos are 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.

The Ravens are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.

The Ravens are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

The Ravens are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games.

The Ravens are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win.

The Ravens are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a bye week.

The Ravens are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 vs. AFC.

The Ravens are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games as a favorite of 0.5-3.0.

Most of the recreational shops seem less inclined to push money towards the dog.  This could be an indication that they believe Denver stands a strong chance of covering here.
