NFL Preview: Indianapolis Colts vs. Baltimore Ravens  OddsAfter a long hard season, the NFL playoffs are finally among us. The AFC has been settles for over a week, while the NFC remained in close contention. It will be a fun weekend for those who enjoy betting, specifically NFL betting. Let’s look at a brief preview of the Baltimore Ravens and the comeback team of the year, the Indianapolis Colts.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts led by Andrew Luck have had quite the turn around since their debacle of a season last year. The rookie quarterback has helped re-shape the team, while veteran receiver Reggie Wayne has stepped up to be a clutch catcher. On the ground Vick Ballard and Donald Brown have been the leading rushers. Luck on average throws for 262 yards per game with a total average yardage of 368 total. It is amazing to think that this was the same team that only won a couple of games a year ago.

 

The Colts defense has been playing fairly well. They allow 24 points per game on average which is not awful, but they allow 375 yards per game. Most of which come on the ground. The defense will need to sharpen their ground game is they hope to stop the Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens

Joe Flacco certainly is not the best quarterback in the AFC. In fact, I could even say he is one of the weakest in the playoffs. Anquan Boldin can be one of the best receivers in the league, when he is playing well. There have been a couple of games where he breaks down and cannot break away from the opposing safety or corner. However, with the somewhat weak Colts rushing defense, Ray Rice should be able to run through the defense and make the most of his opportunities.

The defense in Baltimore is probably one of the most intimidating defense in the NFL. With Ray Lewis back in the lineup and Ed Reed dominating the secondary, there should be some serious issues for the Colts’ offense. Many bookies and sports book reviews are expecting this game to be within three, especially will Joe Flacco’s lack of quarterbacking expertise.

This should be one of the closest games of the wild card playoffs. It is very possible that this game needs to be solved in overtime. The Colts may be able to take their momentum into the post season and win this first game, but do not expect it to be easy. At the same time, Andrew Luck’s lack of experience may be highlighted in the post season, similar to what it looked like against the Patriots earlier this season.
