2013 NFL Playoff Betting Odds: AFC Championship Game

When Tom Brady lines up on Sunday he will tie San Francisco 49ers great Joe Montana for seven career Championship game appearances. Brady is no stranger to the NFL spotlight and I believe he will blow the Baltimore Ravens out of the water in Foxboro. Unfortunatley this will be Ray Lewis’ last game, the New England Patriots will without a doubt cover the -7.5 point spread.

The Patriots were not able to reel in the number one seed in 2012 but, were able to snag home field advantage which is pivotal. Brady is statistically the best quarterback at home in the history of the NFL with a record of 86-15 at Gillette Stadium. In case you were wondering that is a winning percentage of .851 which is absolutely ridiculous and is why the Patriots are headed to their second straight Super Bowl.

Baltimore does have a few things working in their favor as a four seed believe it or not as, the four seed is six and one in the seven Championships involving a four seed. However, inconsistent play from Quarterback Joe Flacco is a cause for concern in such a big game. If Baltimore’s offense can hit the ground running and quiet a hostile Patriot crowd the Ravens will be in great shape.

This will be the first time since 1986-87 that two teams will be going head-to-head in a Championship game for consecutive years. The Ravens are hoping for a different outcome than last year as they were beat 23-20 in last years affair. This time around there will be no sight of ex-Raven kicker Billy Cundiff as it was his 32 yard missed field goal in 2012 that prevented the Ravens from reaching the Super Bowl in 2012.
