Joe D'Amico's NFL Bookie Buster of the Year
Indianapolis vs. Baltimore,
01/06/2013 13:00 EDT,
Score: 9 - 24
Point Spread: +7/-110 Indianapolis
Sunday's winner is Indianapolis over Baltimore. This is my Bookie Buster.
Indy has won 10 of their L13 both SU and ATS. This past week, Coach Pagano was cleared to be on the sideline here. The Colts have always been a heartfelt, emotional family. Baltimore has lost 4 of their L5 both SU and ATS, allowing 25 PPG in that span. Let's face it, aside from the Cincy and Oakland games, the Baltimore offense has had issues. Ray Lewis announced that this will be his last campaign. How much of an impact it will be is unsure. The distraction of OC, Cam Cameron's firing last month hasn't helped an already unfocused Ravens team. Remember, their "D" isn't feared anymore. QB, Joe Flacco has struggled down the stretch and in his career against the Colts, he was beaten for 5 INTs. Andrew Luck has led his team, played with poise, and single-handedly extended margins of victory. The QB is loaded with talented ball-carriers and receivers. Baltimore is hanging on by a thread because they were far superior than the rest of their Division. Age, injuries, and distractions tell me that the odds makers are giving them too much credit. The Colts went from 2-14 last season improving to 11-5 TY. They have the emotion factor for Coach Pagano, confidence, and to be honest, they have nothing to lose. Which makes them very dangerous. The Colts are 8-0 ATS their L8 meetings vs. the Ravens, 5-0 ATS their L5 games played at the Ravens, 19-7-2 ATS their L28 games played vs. teams with a winning record, and 5-1 ATS their L6 games played overall. The Ravens are 3-8 ATS their L11 games played at home, 1-3-1 ATS their L5 games played vs. the AFC, 1-4-1 ATS their L6 games played against teams with a winning record, and 1-4 ATS their L5 games played overall. Take Indianapolis. Thank you.
