It's hard to believe that the Ravens were initially slated as high as 11-point dogs in their season opener at Denver.
For a seasoned NFL gambler, giving that many points is as good as someone standing in a corner handing out $100 bills.
Thus, it's no surprise that: A. There's been plenty of action already for this game, and B. Most of it has gone in one direction, which has forced oddsmakers to either readjust or get taken for a ride.
A few hours before kickoff, Denver remains an eight-point favorite for tonight's game, which means oddsmakers are either stubborn or know something we don't.
In either case, just because the defending champs have a few divots – compared to last year's Super Bowl team – doesn't quite seem to justify an eight-point spread, and the betting population agrees.
Currently, 62 percent of the (general consensus) betting action has been in favor of the Ravens. Those numbers accounts to approximately 2,453 units out of the almost 4K total recorded bets.
In addition, there's other statistical data that's used nowadays to make – let's call it – an intelligent bet, and that's how well these teams have performed against the spread (ATS).
While these numbers - like most stats - can be deceiving, it certainly helps people sleep better at night, knowing that mathematically, the right decision was made. With that said, here are some interesting ATS trends for both squads:
- Baltimore is 5-0 in its last 5 games in Week 1.
- Baltimore is 4-0 in its last 4 games overall.
- Baltimore is 3-1-1 in its last 5 games on grass.
- Baltimore is 5-2-1 in its last 8 road games.
- Baltimore is 11-5 in its last 16 games in September.
- Baltimore is 1-4 in its last 5 Thursday games.
