Bet on the Best Preseason Team and QB to Cover Week 1 Spread

  • The Baltimore Ravens are the winningest team in the NFL preseason over the last 15 years.
  • Odds favor the Baltimore Ravens by 3.5 points against the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • Their Week 1 NFL preseason game begins at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, August 12.

BALTIMORE – The Baltimore Ravens are the best NFL preseason team to bet on in 2023, posting a 43-12 record since John Harbaugh became the head coach in 2008.

Exactly six months after betting on the Super Bowl, NFL betting returns with Week 1 of the 2023 NFL preseason. Betting odds for Week 1 list the Baltimore Ravens as 3.5-point favorites against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Baltimore Ravens Vs Philadelphia Eagles Betting Lines

Team: Spread: Total:
Baltimore Ravens -3.5 (-110) O35.5 (-110)
Philadelphia Eagles +3.5 (-110) U35.5 (-110)

Only the San Francisco 49ers are greater favorites (-4.0) out of all the Week 1 NFL preseason games for opening weekend. Heavy favoritism towards the Ravens comes from preseason success and the lack thereof from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Since Nick Sirianni took over as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, they’re 1-5 in the preseason. Falling short in the preseason proves that impressive Eagles Super Bowl 58 betting odds don’t translate to exhibition success.

Philadelphia’s backup defensive players get a bad matchup with Tyer Huntley, who proved to be the best player in the 2022 NFL preseason.

Tyler Huntley “Masterful” in 2022 NFL Preseason

Previous seasons have proven Lamar Jackson’s importance for the Ravens Super Bowl 58 betting odds, so John Harbaugh will likely stick with Tyler Huntley under center. This isn’t an issue for the Ravens 3.5-point spread, as Huntley dominated the preseason last year.

Huntley’s “masterful” preseason play last season is well documented, throwing for 238 yards and two touchdowns with only three incompletions in two games.
