Ravens vs. Colts Division Round Playoffs odds were regularly being updated as we headed into Saturday night's pivotal game.

After opening at -7, the Indianapolis Colts were now a -6 favorite at some online sportsbooks including BetUS.com.  Both sides were getting near even action from the betting public.

The team's play was reminiscent of their 2000 playoff run that ended in a Super Bowl championship, points out Tommy Long of BetUS.com.

The question is:  Can the Ravens provide yet another upset against the nearly undefeated Indianapolis Colts this weekend?

Ravens vs. Colts odds are under a touchdown for a reason.  Baltimore nearly beat Indianapolis earlier this season, losing by a mere two points. 

Tommy Long of BetUS.com:

 

"Baltimore rushing has been spectacular this season with 2nd year man Ray Rice gaining yards and veteran Willis McGahee finding the end zone. Their strength on the ground is perfectly suited to attack the Colts major weakness. The Colts finished near the bottom of the league, allowing the opposition to rush for more than 126 yards a game. Baltimore ranked well eighth against the pass but they allowed Peyton Manning to throw for 299 yards in their week 11 matchup. 

"Indianapolis finished with a 14-2 record and there is little doubt that they would have gone 16-0 had Bill Polian not ordered Coach Jim Caldwell to sit his starters in the final two weeks.  It seems whatever obstacle is in front of the Colts find a way to win and I believe this weekend will be no different.

"Peyton Manning won his fourth MVP award after finishing the finest season of his career, throwing for 4500 yards, 33 touchdowns and orchestrated seven come from behind victories. Both Dallas Clark (1106 yards, 10 TDs) and Reggie Wayne (1264 yards, 10 TDs) had fantastic seasons and receivers Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon earned Manning's trust early in the season.  On the ground the Colts have been OK, but Joseph Addai, feeling the push from backup Donald Brown, had a solid year finding the end zone 13 times."
