Bills vs. Ravens Odds NFL Playoffs
The AFC Divisional Round games are set and the Saturday matchup features two of the biggest threats to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens will meet in Orchard Park, NY on Saturday night in a grudge match between two Super Bowl contenders.
The Bills opened as a 2.5-point favorite over the Ravens on DraftKings Sportsbook, but that number has since gone up to -3. Entering a game as the favorite is nothing new for Buffalo. They have been favored in 12 of their 17 games this year, winning 11 of those games outright.
The Bills have been absolutely outstanding at home this season. In fact, their only loss at Ralph Wilson Stadium came to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6.
However, Baltimore is battle-tested on the road. They are 7-2 on the season, including a hard-nosed win in Tennessee during Wild Card Weekend. The Ravens avenged their loss to the Titans in the playoffs last season and Lamar Jackson finally got the monkey off his back when it comes to winning in the playoffs.
Class of 2018 Quarterbacks Battle
Speaking of Lamar Jackson, he will face another quarterback that went in the first round of the 2018 Draft — Josh Allen. Although Allen likely won’t win the MVP this year, he put up an MVP-caliber season. Seeing these two mobile quarterbacks go head to head will be a treat for NFL fans.
It’s also worth noting that the Cleveland Browns, who are set to play the Chiefs on the other side of the bracket, are led by another quarterback from the Class of 2018. Baker Mayfield went off for three touchdowns in Cleveland’s convincing win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
And of course, Patrick Mahomes was drafted one year prior to the 2018 trio. The point is, there is so much young quarterback talent in the AFC right now.
