ANNAPOLIS, Md.—Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley wants his lobsters.

The governor made a bet with his Massachusetts counterpart over the outcome of the playoff game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots, which the Ravens won 33-14 on Sunday.

O'Malley and fellow Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick had a friendly wager on the outcome of Sunday's first-round football playoff game between the two NFL teams. O'Malley promised Maryland crabcakes if the Ravens fell to the Patriots, and Patrick pledged lobsters if his team lost.

"Hey Deval, send down the lob-stah," O'Malley said in a mock Boston accent during a YouTube video urging Patrick to honor the "gentlemanly bet."
