The Ravens have been underdogs since basically the second the playoffs started. They don’t really care and in fact, they even seem to relish the negitivity and us against the world motivation that comes with being an underdog.
being favored to lose has helped inspired the Ravens to three straight victories in which they have thoroughly outplayed their opponents.
In keeping with the tone of the playoffs, the Ravens opened as a 4.5 point dog before they had even finished pummeling the Patriots into submission. That line was quickly adjusted to 4 and yesterday was further narrowed to just 3.5.
I don’t know exactly how much money Vegas has lost because of the Ravens, but I bet it is millions. reducing the line is just protecting themselves from loosing millions more during the most bet upon single sporting event in the world.
