Why the Patriots will win Sunday at Baltimore

LAS VEGAS -- There's not too much debate over what the most anticipated NFL game of Week 3 is. The New England Patriots visiting the Baltimore Ravens, a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship game, should attract a large national TV audience. But here in Las Vegas, Nielsen ratings don't determine what the most-bet game of the week will be. So to get confirmation, we asked veteran oddsmaker Bert Osborne, the sports book director at the South Point Hotel and Casino, what he sees as the game that will attract the most interest in town.

"Without a doubt, we will write the most action on the Ravens-Patriots game, hands down! It already is," said Osborne, who notes he has a slight edge on Ravens straight-bet action, but has more ticket counts (smaller money) on the Patriots.
