The NFL post-season Divisional Round doubleheader on Saturday concludes from Baltimore as the AFC top-seeded Ravens host the No. 6 Tennessee Titans.

NFL Playoffs Betting Odds

The Tennessee-Baltimore winner will play Sunday’s Houston-Kansas City winner in the AFC title game. The Titans would visit either the Texans or Chiefs, while the Ravens would host it if they win. Baltimore is the +187 favourite at Sports Interaction to win the Super Bowl and -137 for the AFC title. A Ravens-49ers game is the favoured exact matchup at +225. The Titans are +2500 to win the Super Bowl and +1400 for the AFC crown.

It’s the first post-season matchup between these franchise since Jan. 10, 2009, also in the Divisional Round. Baltimore won that 13-10 in Nashville. The Ravens then dropped the AFC title game in Pittsburgh. The Ravens visited Tennessee in Week 6 last season and won 21-0. Lamar Jackson hadn’t yet taken over as Baltimore’s starting quarterback. Joe Flacco threw for 238 yards with a touchdown and interception. Alex Collins rushed for two scores. He’s out of the NFL now.

Marcus Mariota threw for just 117 yards for the Titans and was sacked 11 times. He’s no longer the starter for Tennessee, replaced by Ryan Tannehill. The Titans had just 106 total yards in the loss.

The Ravens are 3-1-1 against the spread in the past five meetings. The under is 5-0-1 in the past six in Baltimore.

Tennessee Titans

The Tom Brady-led New England Patriots had ruled over the NFL since 2001, but the league’s greatest dynasty might have died when the Pats were stunned at home last Saturday by the Titans, 20-13. Derrick Henry, who led the NFL in rushing yards this regular season, was a beast with 182 yards (most against a Bill Belichick-coached Patriots team in a playoff game) and a touchdown on 34 carries. Tannehill didn’t do much, completing 8 of 15 for 72 yards with a touchdown and pick. But he wasn’t asked to do much. The Tennessee defence didn’t allow a TD pass to Brady, who was picked off once. It was returned for a touchdown by Logan Ryan with nine seconds to go (it was 14-13 before that). Tannehill, the former Miami Dolphin, now has five wins as a starting quarterback against Brady (5-6). Only Peyton Manning has more. The Titans are 4-0 ATS in their past four road games.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens finished with the NFL’s best regular-season record at 14-2 and have won a franchise-record 12 straight games. Jackson was a marvel in his second year, leading the NFL with 36 touchdown passes and also setting the single-season rushing record for a quarterback with 1,206 yards. He’s a lock to win NFL MVP honours and already has been named first-team All-Pro. The past six first-team All-Pro quarterbacks have won MVP. Jackson did not play well in his post-season debut last year, a 23-17 home Wild-Card loss to the Chargers. He was 3-for-9 for just 25 yards through three quarters. The former Heisman winner says that game still motivates him.  Baltimore is 7-1 ATS in its past eight playoff games.
