Two perennial AFC powerhouses meet on Sunday Night Football this week in a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship Game, with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots visiting Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens. Both teams are coming off tough losses last week and will need a win to avoid a 1-2 start to the season, so it’s sure to be a heated contest.

SPEAD: Ravens -3
MONEY LINE: Patriots +120, Ravens -140

The Patriots were 13-point home favorites last week, but fell to Kevin Kolb and the Arizona Cardinals 20-18. New England won as road favorites in Week 1 at the Tennessee Titans. The Ravens covered the spread last week as three-point road underdogs in Philadelphia, but lost 24-23 to Michael Vick and the Eagles. Six days earlier, Baltimore beat the Cincinnati Bengals at home by 31 points, easily covering as seven-point favorites.

In last January’s AFC Championship Game, the Patriots failed to cover as seven-point home favorites but advanced to the Super Bowl with a 23-20 win over the Ravens.  In the previous regular season meeting in October 2010, the Patriots won at home by the same score, pushing as three-point favorites. The last time these two teams met in Baltimore was way back in December 2007, with the Patriots again winning by a field goal despite being 19-point road favorites.

Both last year’s AFC Championship Game and the 2010 regular season meeting went Under. Both of New England’s games this season have gone Under, while Baltimore’s loss last week pushed and their Week 1 win went Over.

If I was the wagering type, I’d take the Ravens straight up and the Under.
