Baltimore Ravens (13-6 SU, 9-9-1 ATS, 10-8 O/U)
Lewis and the Ravens have won three straight playoff games(just as I predicted), including two straight as an underdog over Denver and New England as they picked off Peyton Manning and Tom Brady two times apiece. Baltimore has gotten a series of outstanding performances from numerous players on both sides of the ball during their surprising) postseason run.

Dating back to Week 16 of the regular season, Baltimore has actually won four of its last five games while covering the ATS betting line in each SU victory. The Ravens normally pedestrian offense has even seen a spike in its play, having scored at least 24 points in each of their L/4 SU win while not allowing more than 14 points in three of those wins. Baltimore has also compiled a pristine 4-0 ATS mark in their last four playoff games and enters this Super Bowl 47 matchup on a red-hot 4-1 ATS roll against teams with a winning record.
San Francisco 49ers (13-4-1 SU, 11-7 ATS, 11-6-1 O/U)
The 49ers routed the Green Bay Packers 45-31 in their NFC Divisional matchup two weeks ago and they have won five of their last six games dating back to Week 14 of the regular season while scoring at least 27 points in each of those victories. The Niners also squeaked past the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 in their NFC Championship showdown last weekend, but that performance may have raised more questions than it answered with the Niners looking quite vulnerable in the win. Nevertheless, Frisco has won five of its L/6 games overall while compiling a solid 4-2 ATS record during the span. Frisco has also gone 5-1 ATS in their last half-dozen games against a team with a winning record and 7-1 against the spread in their L/8 games as a favorite of 6.5 points or less.
