Playoff point spreads: Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins

 After reviewing the first round, today we will take a look at the wild card playoff point spread and betting odds on the second round, starting with the Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins football game. Memories of the last meeting between these two NFL franchises remain, the Baltimore Ravens (11-5) overcame the Miami Dolphins (11-5) on October 19th with 27-13 final score and although both the Ravens and the Dolphins completed the regular season with the same record, the sports betting websites and bettors alike are siding with Baltimore to repeat the last game results.

 At the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker the odds are currently favoring the Ravens at -190, while the Dolphins will come out in front of local audience as underdogs, holding odds +160 to win this playoff wildcard game on Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins point spread is currently at -3 points chalk the Ravens with the total expected by the sportsbook set at 38 points even. For the trend-inclined, Baltimore is 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games on the road and Miami is 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games at home. But keep in mind that the Ravens are 3-10 against the spread in its last 13 games when playing the Dolphins and the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Miami's last 7 games when playing at home against the Ravens. Despite these stats, according to Bookmaker most of the bettors are currently taking the Ravens over the Dolphins for the Sunday's wild card playoff game.

 Injuries will definitely play a role in the Ravens vs. Dolphins playoff game tomorrow, although Miami is in a better position with only tight end David Martin and defensive end Randy Starks remaining questionable for wild card playoff Sunday. At Baltimore, however, the list of questionable players is quite long and includes wide receivers Mark Clayton and Derrick Mason, linebackers Antwan Barnes and Jarret Johnson, cornerbacks Samari Rolle and Fabian Washington, as well as defensive tackle Justin Bannan and running back Ray Rice.
