The line on the Ravens-Steelers game opened at -3 and was not likely to move much, though we could see a move down to -2.5.  Pittsburgh was the 3-point home favorite.  Very early betting volume had the Ravens getting 75 percent of the backing on the spread.  Almost all the early action on the money line was on Baltimore, which would pay out a lucrative $16 for every $10 should they win outright.  The total on this game was a very low 36.5 compared to the Jets-Patriots total of 45.5.

The Steelers were ranked number three in’s Power Rankings coming into the Playoffs, behind only New England and Atlanta.   Their odds to win the 2011 Super Bowl were set at 5/1.  The Ravens were ranked number 6 with 12/1 odds of winning the 2011 Super Bowl.

Baltimore easily beat the Kansas City Chiefs as a road favorite early Sunday by a score of 30-7.

"Our defense played phenomenal," Ravens running back Ray Rice said. "They came out in the second half and gutted that offense. It was impressive. It's impressive to be a part of this."

"You just come in and make up your mind when things start going your way they start going your way," Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said. "We knew that this was a very tough place to come play. They have a very talented ball club. We were able to show them and that's kind of how we are built. We are built for 60 minutes."
