Ravens bounce Bengals in first game of season
Baltimore opened their season at home on Monday night against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals, and it didn't prove to be much of a rivalry at all as Joe Flacco and company cruised to a 44-13 victory and easily covered the 7-point spread on the NFL lines at Bovada (in an OVER result). The Ravens were up just 17-10 at halftime in that contest, but their offense turned up the heat in the second half and put 27 points on the board.
Flacco had a good night for the Ravens against the Bengals, completing 21 of his 29 pass attempts for 299 yards through the air with two touchdown strikes and no interceptions – giving him an impressive QB Rating of 128.4 for the contest. Ray Rice paced the Ravens' rushing attack with 68 yards on the ground on 10 carries and found the end zone twice, while Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin each caught TD passes from Flacco on the night.
Vick struggles, but Eagles pull out win in opener
The Eagles were pegged as 8.5-point road favorites in their Week 1 contest against the Cleveland Browns, but it took a late touchdown pass from Michael Vick to Clay Harbor to give them the slim 17-16 victory in a clear UNDER result on the totals at Bovada. Philadelphia put up 10 points in the second quarter of that contest but was then held off the scoreboard until Vick threw the four-yard scoring pass with 1:18 left in the matchup.
Vick threw 56 passes against the Browns, completing only 29 of them for 317 yards with two touchdown strikes and an ugly four interceptions – including one that was returned for a Browns touchdown in the fourth quarter. That gave Vick a QB Rating of 51.0 for the game. LeSean McCoy picked up 110 yards on the ground for the Eagles in that win on his 20 carries, while Jeremy Maclin was the team's top receiver with 96 yards and a score.
Ravens, Eagles will meet for first time since 2008
The Ravens and Eagles are not frequent opponents – the last time the two franchises met on the gridiron was back in November 2008 when Baltimore won 36-7 as a favorite of just 1.5 points in an OVER result. In their three matchups since 1997 the teams have each won once and recorded a tie, with the Ravens holding the slim edge at 2-1 ATS in those games.
On the odds to win the Super Bowl at Bovada this week the Ravens are listed fifth at 12/1, which puts them behind the Patriots, Texans, 49ers, and Packers on that chart. The Eagles are back at 16/1 on those NFL futures, and they're sitting at 15/2 on the odds to win the NFC Championship. The Ravens are holding down 6/1 odds to win the AFC Championship.
