Well I guess technically it is 2013, but we'll go with the 2012 moniker for consistency. Another week of losing money in the Conference title games. This time "only" $3,700, for -$20,200 for the postseason. I covered a spread (Ravens) and tied the other, moving to 1-8-1 ATS.
Without further ado, let's move along to get this out of the way so I can stop losing money:
February 3, 2013: 18:30 EST
Baltimore Ravens (+3.5, +170) vs. San Francisco 49ers (-3.5, -170) O/U 47.5
I saw something in Joe Flacco that I hadn't seen before. Poise, confidence, and determination. If he can go into New England and win, he can win on a neutral field against what I think isn't as good as a team. The 49ers are playing with house money here, as Colin Kaepernick has come from nowhere to be "the man." He's proved everything he can, but I think the Ravens defense contains him. Flacco (and a good backfield and reliable receivers) will be able to move the ball enough. Ravens in a close one.
Final Prediction: Ravens 21, 49ers 17.
Mercifully this will all come to an end (from a gambling standpoint). Hopefully on a positive note!
Who am I?
