After an incredible two-point victory over the Cleveland Browns, Las Vegas wasted no time in setting their odds for the Wildcard round with the Baltimore Ravens favored by three points at home.

It appears Vegas knows this next game is going to be more competitive as the first matchup placed the Los Angeles Chargers as four-point favorite. Now, only two hours after posting the opening lines, the odds have shrunk by a hook.

To those who don’t gamble, this may mean nothing and feel like nothing; I certainly am in the same boat. I simply know the game is going to start 0-0 and the Ravens will need to deal with the Chargers only two weeks after beating them in LA.

Speaking of odds, the Super Bowl odds have posted from OddsShark as well. The Ravens sit in the middle of the pack.

I find it peculiar to see the Chargers more favored to win the Lombardi trophy than the Ravens when they aren’t even favored in their first game.

Hopefully the Ravens not only beat the Chargers, but beat the odds just to rub it in the faces of those confident in the opposition. Nothing like sticking it to the non-believers.
