Sports Gambling 2009 AFC Playoff Lessons

Sports gambling has taken the “hard road” in the NFL post season as online sports gambling handicappers have found value with the visitors in 2009.

Sports gambling fans have seen some shockers in the AFC playoffs as the road teams have proven to be the better online sports gambling commodities.  The one home team to cover the sports gambling number in the AFC playoffs was an underdog as San Diego upset Indianapolis in overtime 23-17 as 1.5-point dogs.

A sports gambling clue for this game would have been the Colts weak history in the post season in general, and quarterback Peyton Manning’s horrible playoff record in particular.  From there the road teams prevailed starting with the Baltimore Ravens getting an easy 27-9 sports gambling win and cover at Miami as 3.5-point chalks.

Baltimore had the sports gambling hot hand entering this one, not to mention the superior defense.  The Ravens had bigger and better online sports gambling success in store for them in their next game at Tennessee, who was the top seed and the sports gambling chalk to win the AFC title.  Baltimore prevailed 13-10 as 3-point dogs.

Tennessee, like Indianapolis, had its share of post season sports gambling catastrophes that gamblers could have learned from before stepping out in this one.  Beyond that, Kerry Collins had never proved to be a true championship quarterback.

Baltimore gave us a great lesson on how a strong defensive team always makes for a dangerous dog.  The sports gambling public would be reaching when they took the San Diego Chargers at Pittsburgh.

The Steelers have always been a solid sports gambling host in post season and San Diego was a weak online sports gambling match for Pittsburgh as they aren’t nearly as physical, have nowhere near the defense, and don’t like cold weather.

Pittsburgh easily got the sports gambling win and cover 35-24 as 6.5-point chalks proving that it is not wise to force the issue against a power team with one as inconsistent as San Diego.
