NFL Playoff odds and lines: Ravens vs. Broncos

USA TODAY Sports

After winning the regular season matchup handily, the Broncos are big favorites for Saturday's game.

Despite a convincing win over the Indianapolis Colts last weekend, the Baltimore Ravens aren't getting much of a chance to do the same thing this weekend.

The top-seeded Denver Broncos are a 9 1/2-point favorite to beat the Ravens this weekend in Denver. The Broncos are well rested after a bye week, while the Ravens held the Colts' offense quiet in a 24-9 victory in the wild card round.

The over/under is set at 46.

The Broncos are the second-highest scoring team in football, so the Ravens' defense and soon-to-be-retired Ray Lewis will have their work cut out for them. Denver averages 30.1 points per game, while the Ravens are allowing 21.5 points per game.

This game is a rematch of a regular-season game from almost a month ago. On Dec. 16, the Broncos doubled up the Ravens en route to a 34-17 victory in Baltimore. The game wasn't even as close as the final score would indicate, as the Broncos owned a 31-3 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Kick off is set for 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
