Behind Enemy Lines on a Wild Card Sunday

Yo this is Nicky and we split Wild Card Saturday after dropping the Bengals by a half-point and frankly we were lucky to get that close as that was the ostentatious display of anemic offense I’ve ever seen, all -6 first half passing yards included. Conversely, the Pack was so easy I actually fell asleep at half as the Vikings were never in it, even when they were up 3-0 they weren’t in the game. So we lost the vig on Saturday but I see some value on Sunday so let’s get to it. In the early game I like the Colts +7.5 (buy the hook) to hang with struggling Ravens. I think the Luck learning cure is steep and he’s not playing like a rookie any more. If he doesn’t make a game changing mistake in the form of Pick-6s they’re defense is more that capable of shutting down Joe Flacco. I think the Ravens will have a tough time scoring in this one and the ghost of playoff games past, mainly last year, will raise its ugly head. This one will be close, so I like the lumber and look for the amazing Indy karma and momentum to possibly win this one on the field. That’s the morning cup o’ chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
