The San Francisco 49ers will play the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night to end the NFL's Thanksgiving marathon. The game features quite a few interesting storylines, not the least of which is the match-up between the Harbaugh brothers, but this particular story is focusing on the Week 12 odds and lines.
The Ravens opened the week as 4½-point favorites over the Frank Gore led 49ers, but the line has dropped at least one point since Monday on most of the major sites, according to the excellent database at Odds Shark. Considering San Francisco has just one loss on its record through its first 10 weeks of the season, Vegas is obviously showing quite a bit of confidence in Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and the rest of the Ravens.
The over-under on the NFL Network's game of the week is sitting at 40 points, give or take a point, heading into Thursday night. Considering it's likely to be a defensive battle, it might be better to just bet on the Harbaugh of your choosing.
