Ravens Odds to Win 2009 Super Bowl Just Got Better

The Baltimore Ravens improbable win in Dallas has helped boost their odds to win the 2009 Super Bowl. 

"This is not the team anyone wants to meet in the Playoffs," points out Dan Shapiro, a sports columnist for the Gambling911.com website.

Willis McGahee ran 77 yards for a lead-stretching touchdown when things got tight late in the fourth quarter, then Le'Ron McClain topped that by going 83 yards for the real victory-clinching touchdown with 1:18 left, sending the Ravens past the Cowboys 33-24 Saturday night in a game both teams needed to boost their playoff chances.


Baltimore led 19-10 midway through the fourth quarter behind four field goals from Matt Stover, who sold programs outside the stadium as a kid growing up in the area, and a touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Derrick Mason.


Tony Romo threw touchdown passes to Terrell Owens and Jason Witten over the last 3:36, each putting Dallas within two points. But the Ravens answered both with one-play scoring drives, both coming on runs up the middle against a defense that had done a great job against the run all night. When Romo's final drive ended on downs, fans began to boo. More boos followed when Flacco took a knee and time ran out.

The Ravens (9-5) control their postseason fate because they can earn a berth by winning their last two regular-season games.

The Baltimore Ravens odds to win the 2009 Super Bowl were listed at +1400 for a $1400 payout potential with every $100 bet at BetUS.com

The Ravens host a Jacksonville Jaguars team that has nothing left to play for next week.
