Ravens and Dolphins Face Off In Wild Card Round
January 2, 2009Posted by on
The Ravens and Dolphins are set to face off in Miami on Sunday at 1pm. Vegas has listed the Ravens anywhere from 3 to 3.5 point favorites according to covers.com. Strange this week that all of the visiting teams have been listed as the favorites. The Dolphins and Ravens are both very hot over the last 11 weeks of the season going 9-2 over that span. The Ravens beat the Dolphins 27-13 at Miami in week 7, but both teams have improved and gained significant confidence since that game. The Dolphins have found ways to win close games, while the Ravens have gotten a significant step up from their offense since their early season woes. This will be one of the best games of wild card weekend, so I’m predicting that the Ravens will win by a score like 24-17 or 20-14. Although I’m not predicting that the Dolphins will cover the spread I would expect that they would have the ball with a chance to win or tie before the Ravens defense closes out the game.
I’m also going to call the other games:
- 33-30 Chargers beat the Colts
- 28-24 Falcons beat the Cardinals
- 24-10 Eagles beat the Vikings
