Long time rivals the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers will face-off this Saturday in an AFC Divisional showdown. While both teams are recognized for their defenses, the Steelers are the slight favorites coming into this game. That has everything to do with QB Ben Roethlisberger, who has thrown 10 touchdown passes while winning six consecutive games with Pittsburgh against Baltimore. When it comes down to it, these teams are very evenly matched, and both finished 12-4 in the regular season. It looks like the nation is in for a close, physical and intriguing game. Odds.

According to defensive lineman Chris Hoke, “The team that wins this game is going to be the most violent team, the team that is most physical.” While physicality might have a lot to do with it, the Steelers also have a load of talent going for them. Troy Polamalu has played a vital role in beating Baltimore in the past. In addition to his late interception return in the 2009 AFC championship that sent Pittsburgh to its seventh Super Bowl, the SS also had an effect on this postseason with his fourth-quarter thrashing of Joe Flacco in Week 13 to help secure the No. 2 seed for his team and a first round bye. Although he is currently nursing an Achilles’ tendon back to health, he is expected to play this Saturday. Combine Polamalu and Roethlisberger with the Steelers’ determined defense and you’ve got a serious contender for this year’s Super Bowl. Scores.

Having each won by a field goal on the other’s turf this season, you can tell this is going to be a close one. Still, Sunday’s routing of the KC Chiefs made for Baltimore’s fourth win away from home in the postseason since Flacco took over. This Raven is the league’s second highest-rated passer [103.4], as well as the first quarterback to start and win a playoffs game in his first three seasons. Furthermore, this team also had Ed Reed, who leads the NFL in eight interceptions despite the first six games of the season. Las Vegas odds.

This one is sure to be all about the air game, as neither team has allowed a 100-yard rusher in their last 28 combined playoff games. With Mike Wallace and Anquan Boldin on hand, you can bet on a number of big air plays on Saturday. For the latest lines and best online betting information, look no further than
