AFC Wild Card Weekend Betting Preview – Colts vs Ravens

The Indianapolis Colts look to continue their Cinderella story as they take on the Ravens in the wild card weekend at MT&T Bank stadium, this Sunday at 1 PM ET.

Andrew Luck, the marvelous rookie will challenge one of the toughest places in the AFC to make it to the next stage, but it will be anything but easy.

“They’re a great team,” Luck said. “Obviously, coach Pagano knows more about them than I do so I’ll lean on him, but obviously (it’s) a historic defense.”

Chuck Pagano was the defensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens before becoming the Colts head coach. “Chuck’s like a dad to me,” safety Ed Reed said. “He means a lot to me. I would have much rather seen them in the AFC championship game than the first game.”

Besides the obvious Pagano story, the other side has Ray Lewis on his last game at home with the Ravens before retiring.

“Everything that starts has an end,” said the 37-year-old Lewis, who will be ESPN new analyst. “For me, today, I told my team that this will be my last ride.”

The Colts may have a change considering Andrew Luck has no turnovers in his last three games after leading the NFL with 23 turnovers in his first 13 games, but this team actually chances whenever they play away from home.

The NFL lines have the Ravens favorites by a touchdown, and most people are taking the points and riding the Chuckstrong story.
