AFC Wild Card Matchups

There’s another Week 17 rematch on tap in Saturday’s Wild Card battle between the Jets and the Bengals, while in Sunday’s AFC clash the Patriots will try to get by without Wes Welker when they host the Ravens.

The Jets needed a win over Cincinnati in Week 17 to get into the post season and they ended up routing the Bengals 37-0 as 10-point favorites.

New York defense dominated the Bengals in the win limiting them to 72 total yards of offense, while the Jets rushing attack racked up 257 yards on the ground. Thomas Jones found the end zone twice while rushing for 78 yards on 27 carries and wideout Brad Smith made the most of his four carries with 92 yards and a TD.

The Bengals had pulled most of their starters by the fourth quarter, but even when they were in there Cincinnati couldn’t move the ball at all. Carson Palmer stayed in until the middle of the third quarter and completed only 1-of-11 passes for zero yards and a pick.

Starting running back Cedric Benson didn’t play at all and Larry Johnson did very little in his place with 38 rushing yards on nine carries.

Chad Ochocinco suffered a knee injury in pregame warm ups last week, but still played and went without a catch. The injury was later diagnosed as a bad bruise, but it won’t keep Ochocinco out this weekend. That’s good news for the Bengals who need all the help they can get on offense versus the Jets top ranked defense.

Despite last week’s embarrassing loss the Bengals still have home field advantage on Sunday and they’re a 2.5-point favorite at Bovada.

AFC Wild Card odds – Ravens ready for upset in Foxboro?

In Sunday’s AFC Wild card matchup the Baltimore Ravens better hope history stops repeating itself as they go for their first-ever win against the Patriots.

The Patriots and Ravens met up in New England back in Week 4 and the Pats escaped with a 27-21 win as 1.5-point favorites. With that win the Patriots improved to a lifetime 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS against the Ravens.

Tom Brady passed for 258 yards with a touchdown to Randy Moss and a pick, while Joe Flacco threw for 264 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception. Ray Rice shredded the Pats run defense with 103 rushing yards on only 11 carries.

In Week 17 the Ravens picked up a necessary win over Oakland to squeak into the post season, while the Patriots lost more than just a game to Houston.

The Ravens toppled Oakland 21-13 as a 10-point favorite led by a surprising performance by Willis McGahee. He rushed for 167 yards and three touchdowns in 16 carries, which were more yards than he had in his previous six games combined.

New England lost to Houston 34-27 as a 7.5-point underdog. The Patriots also lost leading receiver Wes Welker for the rest of the season due to a knee injury. With Welker out Julian Edelman emerged to catch 10 passes for 103 yards and they’ll need him to continue to be effective to keep their offense firing.

Even after losing Welker the Patriots are still a 3-point favorite at Bovada. One important trend to note, not only is New England undefeated against Baltimore they’re also undefeated at home this season. The Patriots were 8-0 SU and 5-3 ATS in Foxboro this season.
