Martin O'Malley And Colorado Governor Bet On Playoff Game

A trip to the AFC title game isn't the only thing on the line this afternoon when the Baltimore Ravens visit the Denver Broncos in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs.

Bets are very common during the playoffs, but politicians can't wager money, so instead they put up items indigenous to their cities or states.

Chesapeake Bay crab cakes and Colorado lamb chops are on the line between Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Maryland will get a dozen lamb chops if the Ravens win, and O'Malley will send his Colorado counterpart 12 crab cakes in the event of a Broncos victory.

The two teams did play earlier this season in Baltimore, and the Broncos cruised to an easy 34-17 victory.
