On Tuesday, the Ravens named QB Kyle Boller as their starter for Thursday's game at New England.
Bettors responded by taking the Ravens and the points. New England, which opened as a 5.5-point favorite, is now a four-point favorite. Boller is expected to play most of the first half. Those backing Baltimore have to like the fact that 1) Boller is playing for his job and 2) has cut down on his mistakes early in training camp. Some bettors may also like that Boller played a decent game vs. New England last December, when the Ravens, 19-point home underdogs, pushed the Patriots to the limit before falling 27-24.
