Denver -2.5
 
So what does everyone think? I know at the beginning of the year I would have been very very surprised to know Denver would be a favorite in Baltimore.

2.5 means nothing. Pick the winner and you'll get the money.

So I would take Denver and give the 2.5,

Denver is more like a 5.5 favorite. Home team automatically gets 3 in Vegas.

What does everyone think of Houston being favored by 9.5 over Indy? That seems outrageously high too me. I have not seen Indy play this year though. Maybe I am over estimating them.

I understand that but the game is in Baltimore so the spread is 2.5

Another game is Pitt +1.5 over Dallas. Again the 1.5 is worthless. Pick the winner and you win the bet.

If it were in Denver it would be -5.5 because the Broncos are favored in Baltimore at -2.5

How do you know this? I agree both home field for Baltimore and Denver is greater than the standard 3 points.

Bmore at home =+3 for -2.5 Bmore

Neutral field = -5.5 Bmore

Denver at home = (+3 home field) = 8.5


It's a 6 point swing

What is your point? Home field means a lot in football games. The ravens are always far tougher to beat in Baltimore.
