Line: 250 yards
This is a rather tricky bet because of the nature of the Ravens offense, as it is very much predicated on Flacco connecting on deep passes. This leads to very inconsistent passing totals.
The current line for Flacco's passing total is at 250 yards, a total that he has surpassed in every playoff game except for the New England game. Still, in that game, Flacco fell just 10 yards short, and this had much to do with the fact that the Ravens reverted to a run-first approach when they took the lead in the second half.
Against Colin Kaepernick and the dangerous 49ers offense, the Ravens will likely spend much less time with a double-digit lead, and Flacco will be forced to pass more. Also, the 49ers' pass rush has not been the same since Justin Smith suffered a triceps injury in the regular season, which should allow the Ravens the time to connect on some deep passes.
Unlike their meeting in 2011, this figures to be a high-scoring offensive game, which makes it easy to take the over.
